Luvu Brands believes everyone should feel safe and comfortable in today’s environments. Like so many other manufacturers, our company has heeded the call for the need for personal protective equipment and has taken the necessary steps to deliver quality products through AVANA PPE. As an Atlanta-manufacturer, we have maintained our essential status throughout this crisis and are now making community-grade, reusable protective face masks, and level 1 reusable surgical gowns.
AVANA PPE Gowns are reusable and washable and are designed for basic care and isolation. Each gown is open in the front and has long sleeves with a belt that loops around for added protection. The multiple-use gowns we manufacture are made of innovative and patented technology fabric, made in the USA. It is made of fabric that is simple and practical to integrate antiviral and antimicrobial protection into common medical isolation gowns and garments for an added layer of active defense against microbial and viral exposures, contaminations and infections.
Avana Protective Face Mask acts as the first level of defense during the coronavirus crisis. The innovative contoured design adapts to the topography of the face—giving the wearer complete protection and full coverage of critically exposed areas such as the nose and the mouth while fitting perfectly across lateral sides of the cheeks and wrapping under the chin. Constructed with non-wicking fabrics, these masks are helpful in preventing droplets from the wearers’ mouth from entering the air.
Sunbrella® Avana Protective Face Mask
Equipped with an internal 3-stage filtering system. The first filtration barrier is Sunbrella® a 100% lightweight acrylic fabric that is both water-resistant and breathable. Sunbrella also provides you with UV protection and is stain-resistant. The second filtration barrier is a medical-grade polypropylene that is also completely breathable while offering moisture & bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) to 99.5% in accordance with ASTM F2101-07 for medical face masks. The third barrier is 100% cotton and also functions as a soft-liner medium that helps reduce pressure points and skin irritation during long-term wear.
ComPel® Avana Protective Face Masks
The first filtration barrier uses ComPel® a synthetic patented microfilament calendared fabric that repels liquids and is also breathable. It meets AAMI PB70:2003; a standard for liquid barrier performance used in level-two healthcare PPE. The second filtration barrier of medical-grade polypropylene is completely breathable and provides moisture & bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) to 99.5% in accordance with ASTM F2101-07 for medical face masks. The third barrier is 100% cotton that functions as a soft-liner medium that helps to reduce pressure points and skin irritation during long-term wear.
With a vertically integrated manufacturing facility, Luvu Brands was able to pivot quickly and fill an important need across the nation. AVANA PPE will likely become a new division for Luvu Brands as we have quickly converted our operations to produce effective and durable personal protective equipment for frontline healthcare workers and the community-at-large.
