Given the lack of sanitary material in hospitals caused by the Covid-19, in Capitán Denim they wanted to contribute their grain of sand by making a prototype mask to reduce the viral load of the sanitary and residential staff.
According to Juan González, CEO of Capitán Denim, “many acquaintances from the Hospital of Albacete and the mayor of Madrigueras himself told us that there was a lack of sanitary material and after closing our factory due to the Alarm State, we decided to make some prototype masks with the materials what we have".
These are masks made of 100% cotton fabric that, despite not being the regulations - of the FFP2 and FFP3 type - serve to cover the mouth and thus reduce the viral load to which a person may be exposed.
At the moment, Captain Denim has already manufactured nearly 2,500 masks for SESCAM residences and centers, and has also donated 1,400 pairs of protective gloves for toilets. According to Juan González, the number of masks will depend on the need for material that the authorities transfer to them.
Likewise, Captain Denim is strictly complying with the security measures recommended by the Government, which is why, currently, at the factory there are only between 4 and 5 people working on the prototype masks, respecting the distances and using the appropriate protective material. In this sense, the company does not rule out having more workers for the manufacture of masks if necessary.
"We are glad to be useful" Juan González pointed out.
