We worked with one of our partners - UIUC's Band, the Marching Illini - to develop musician-friendly masks. They came to us looking for PPE that would work securely and comfortably as a face covering without inhibiting the musicians' playing.
Dr. Barry L. Houser, the Marching Illini Band Director, was instrumental (pun intended) while designing these custom face coverings. These masks connect to the ears, are 2-ply for added protection and have a slit for band members to be able to safely access their instrument.
We are proud of this challenging but exciting collaboration. Do you have custom needs similar to the Marching Illini? We work directly with our manufacturers so there is no project too small, or too large, to connect with us about.
