How to Make Up To 400 Face Masks From A Car Cover

Helping Our Community and Customers

The lack of medical masks has become a growing issue and concern, so we have taken some actions to help as best as we can:

  • We urge our customers to create their own masks so that the highest quality masks can make their way to the health care workers that need them the most.
  • We have created an easy instructional video that teaches you how to use our covers to create your own masks.
  • While these masks are not medical grade, some of our covers (listed below) are made from a similar non-woven breathable material found in commercial protective masks, have a soft interior lining, and are splash resistant, which mitigates the spread of the virus and other airborne particles.

We recommend only using the following cover materials to make face masks:

Titan 5-Layer Series (Best)
Titan 4-Layer Series (Better) 
Titan 3-Layer Series (Better) 

Facts About Face Masks:

  • Face Masks (aka Personal Protective Equipment) should not be confused N95 Masks—which are sealed to the face and critically needed by medical personnel and those who are known to have been directly exposed to patients with proven or suspected COVID-19. However, as evidenced below, face masks have real value and benefit.
  • Face masks are STRONGLY recommended to be worn by older adults (60 years or older) and those with underlying medical conditions.
  • Face masks prevent users from touching their mouth and nose with their possibly contaminated hand.
  • Face masks PREVENT potential asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic transmission and are strongly recommended by older adults and those with underlying medical conditions. See authoritative British Medical Journal, the Lancet, 3/20/2020: “Rational use of face masks in the COVID-19 pandemic”: Perhaps it would also be rational to recommend that people in quarantine wear face masks if they need to leave home for any reason, to prevent potential asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic transmission. In addition, vulnerable populations, such as older adults and those with underlying medical conditions, should wear face masks if available. Universal use of face masks could be considered if supplies permit.
  • The CDC’s advice similarly includes: To protect yourself: wear a face mask if you are sick and cover coughs and sneezes. Additionally, the Surgeon General has recently asked the CDC to investigate if they should recommend all people who go outside to wear face masks since the asymptomatic spread of the virus has increased.
