brrr° and MacBick Partner to Create Cooling Face Masks
As a woman-owned business, brrr° is excited to partner with another woman-owned and operated business to bring
cooling face masks to their employees and customers.
brrr° CEO Mary-Cathryn Kolb worked with Bevin Carter, the CEO of Atlanta- based laboratory design/build firm MacBick, to develop masks made with cooling fabric that will help protect the health and safety of their workers and customers.
The brrr° masks will keep people cooler while they adjust to a new work environment and get back into the swing of things on the job.
The goal is to keep people cool and comfortable as they go about their daily business. Studies show that it’s harder to concentrate and focus on the task at hand when you are hot and uncomfortable, so improving the fabric and design of these masks will enhance productivity and creativity.
The masks are made of 54% BCI cotton, 41% brrrº nylon, and 5% spandex for stretch and better fit. Like all brrr° products, the masks are cool to the touch, quick-drying, and washable. They can be easily customized for different colors, patterns, logos, and other branding.
“We’re so happy that brrr° can provide cool comfort during this time as people start to return to work and adjust to new ways of doing business,” Kolb said. “We are excited to partner with another woman-owned company that is also passionate about innovation and collaboration and putting the needs of their employees and customers first.”
MacBick’s Carter says that as the COVID-19 pandemic created challenges in our everyday lives, it also created opportunities to innovate and find new ways to help slow the spread of coronavirus and reduce the risk of overwhelming the healthcare system.
Carter was looking for a comfortable face mask made with a unique fabric that was designed differently than others on the market, and she was thrilled to find a better solution for her employees and customers.
Working with brrr°, MacBick developed a face mask with breathable cloth that is cool to the touch and wicks away moisture. The masks help prevent the spread of germs and are more comfortable to wear during the workday and while running essential errands.
brrr° creates yarns and fabrics with patented cooling technology that uses natural cooling minerals, active wicking, and rapid drying to create a Triple Chill Effect that instantly and continuously draws heat and moisture away from the skin.
“As the world faces its biggest pandemic within the century, we are prepared to work tirelessly to continue developing innovative flexible lab solutions that drive productivity and collaboration. Together, we will fight this pandemic by sharing best practices, accelerating research for treatments and vaccines beyond commercial interests,” Carter said.
