Product information

hyphen sports mouth and nose masks – types and key features

There are two distinct styles of hyphen sports mouth and nose masks:

  1. Colorline masks: quick and easy to fit, these masks are made in a wide range of single colours for adults, and in three bright designs for kids.
  1. Grafikline masks: have the same double ties as the Colourline, with the addition of an adjustable nose bridge. They are available for adults in ten different designs and for kids in three designs. Grafikline also includes a Special Edition in two darker designs made with a focus on trades and field workers.

And they have some common features – see the separate specification pages for information on each type of mask:

  • Washable: hyphen sports masks can be thoroughly disinfected once they have been worn on a daily basis, through washing in a 60°C machine cycle. In comparison with a 90°C hot wash, using this lower temperature keeps the colours bright.
  • Double layer: All hyphen sports mask are made from a double layer of materials to improve their effectiveness, yet are still very light and comfortable
  • Full fit: these masks go right under your chin for a secure but pleasant fit
  • Adjustable ties: These masks are fitted in place by means of two sets of fully adjustable ties: they do not use the more usual elastic ear fastenings which means that they can be tied individually to make a perfect fit, will not interfere with the side-arms of spectacles or sunglasses, not cut into your ears nor fall off unexpectedl Further, because the ties are made from material, not elastic, they will not perish nor lose their shape through washing.
  • Car to car, or ‘bus to train: because these masks are made form specially selected fabrics, they are very comfortable, so you can wear them for a longer period, such as when commuting, or when moving to and from from your car or taxi to do your shopping.
  • Certified fabric: The materials are certified to OEKOTEX® Class I, Allergy UK and bluesign, are free from any allergenic or toxic products so are very kind to your skin.
  • UV protection: The fabric also has a high UV protection rate, which is great for anyone working, or in action, outdoors.
  • Made in Europe: Like all hyphen sports products, the masks are German designed, and constructed at their own factory in Mursko Sredisce / Croatia. The masks are made from Italian fabric, which is certified to the OEKOTEX® Class I standard.
  • Available whilst stocks last
  • Sustainability: A minimum order of 10 masks is requested for Sustainability reasons, as this reduces overall packaging and transport miles. The bags are made from polypropylene (PP) so are readily recyclable once you have no further use for them.
  • Free delivery: this Sustainability aspect is why there is no delivery charge.
  • Delivery from Munich, Germany: your order will take approximately 3 to 5 days to arrive
  • Usage frequency: you need three reusable masks to cover all your needs: one in use, one in the wash (they dry fast) and one ready to go. A pack of ten would cover a family of two adults and an adolescent…with one spare in case of loss.

Comfortable, adjustable, washable, re-usable, sustainable.

Protecting others by keeping our own bacteria and viruses to ourselves is one of the best things that we can all do for each other in the face of viral crises such as Covid-19. If we all wore masks, this would help stop the virus in its tracks.

This is why we at hyphen sports use our special, densely woven UV protective fabric for mouth and nose masks, combined with an anti-bacterial material as an inner layer, which protects us from the risk of infection (but does not prevent an attack from viral pathogens like the coronavirus). A mask or face covering prevents the spray and droplets produced simply by speaking, or more obviously when coughing or sneezing, from being spread uncontrollably, especially in situations where social distancing is difficult such as in enclosed spaces such as in shops or on public transport. There is a further, personal plus, too: masks prevent us from unconsciously touching our mouths or noses with our hands, which may have become contaminated as we move around. In any case, masks help break the chain of infection.

When wearing a mask, you will also need to follow other, sensible hygiene advice such as regular 20 second hand-washing, disinfection of surfaces and keeping social distancing as outlined by the government. When you remove your mask, you should try to avoid touching the front surface, and always wash your hands afterwards.

Our hyphen sports masks are for general use, for social distancing hygiene, and for any trades that require airway protection from dust, particles or fibres, or for domestic DIY. In our opinion, all certified medical airway protection or Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) masks should be available ony to those who need them most: our medical and care professionals. They are dealing with very ill patients so they have a priority need for such PPE masks. Re-usable, washable masks like ours are the best solution for non-specialist users, and have the added advantage of being environmentally sustainable, as you can use them time and time again: the common, single use masks are used then thrown away, where they can either add to our mountains of waste (even if properly disposed of), or find their way into our rivers and seas.

The way forward is for all of us to take Personal Responsibility, and take good care of ourselves, of others and of our environment:

  • Act Sustainably by using washable and reusable masks and face coverings, so ensuring that the single use personal protective equipment items are readily available for health professionals and other key workers;
  • Prevent the transfer of the coronavirus to others by using a face mask – it is not always obvious if we are carriers of this nasty pathogen;
  • Show that you know the coronavirus is not beaten…and that you are also in the front-line in preventing its spread: to date, over five hundred and fifty million people have tragically died as a result of Covid-19 … and the total number of infected persons is still rising.

Wearing a hyphen sports mouth and nose mask will stop you adding to the problem and help you become part of the solution: this is responsibility in action.
