Tampa, FL – In its commitment to help school band and music programs continue while adhering to health and safety standards, Gator is now offering instrument and face cover solutions that follow recommendations from the NFHS (National Federation of State High Schools) study. Gator’s product designs incorporated the study findings and insights.
“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 Co. “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 helped 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 4-32 inches in diameter to fit various instruments.
The instrument face masks are specially designed with a front flap opening for easy playing while staying safe and are available in youth and adult sizes.
