A Sustainable Support for fighting virus outbreaks
The importance of hygiene is gaining recognition. As there currently is no cure for the newly discovered coronavirus, the only way to prevent or slow down the transmission of it is to protect people from getting the virus in the first place. This happens mainly by supporting people to be hygienic, to wash hands more often and by helping them be more considerate around other people. The Reusable Face Mask Service introduced by Lindström aims to help in the latter. The fabric mask will help people to keep from touching their face which is a major source of infection and act as a barrier for droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when a person coughs or sneezes.
With Reusable Face Mask Service you can:
- Protect the continuity of your processes
- Support the hygiene on your people
- Prevent direct skin contact
- Eliminate cross contamination risks
- Safe to use time after time - save resources with our service.
Hygienic Reusable Face Masks
The Reusable Face Mask Service is aimed at companies with people working, for instance, in food processing, pharma or retail industries. The reusable face mask is not to be considered as a medical device or PPE as it has no proven protective features. The service will be available in all countries with Lindström operations in both Europe and Asia.
Microbiologically clean textiles
Lindström´s service model guarantees microbiologically clean textiles as all Lindström´s service centers follow the EU standard EN-14065, which ensures the required hygiene level throughout the entire service process. Standard EN 14065 applies to the textiles used in pharmaceutical, medical, food, and cosmetics industries and health care.
Special laundry process to be followed
All the Lindström´s operating units are also ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. In the case of the Reusable Face Masks Service, we follow a special laundry process meant for laundering infected workwear where the laundry process includes a combination of a special handling procedure as well as thermal and chemical disinfection that destroys microbes to ensure hygienic and sustainable products.
