Gator Offering Instrument and Face Coverings
Gator Co. is now offering instrument and face coverings that follow recommendations from a study by the National Federation of State High Schools.
“We wanted to be very thorough and thoughtful in our research and development, so we connected directly with NFHS on their scientific studies to ensure our product adhered to data-driven recommendations,” said Crystal Morris, CEO of Gator. “NFHS was very receptive and helpful in developing and refining our designs to create a high-quality, effective product that would be well-received and help ensure the health and safety of students and educators.”
The instrument bell covers with a pocket for a replaceable Merv 13 filter, included, are made from a breathable, non-woven polypropylene fabric with little to no back pressure or acoustic loss during performance. The fabric and the filter are expected to greatly reduce the spread of aerosols. The bell covers are available in multiple sizes ranging from 4 to 32 inches in diameter to fit various instruments.
The instrument face masks, which are specially designed with a front flap opening for easy playing while staying safe, are available in youth and adult sizes.
