Secure Components of Norristown, Pennsylvania, is offering emergency sourcing of PPE equipment to the medical, commercial, industrial and defense industries as the coronavirus pandemic continues to create spikes in demand for N-95 NIOSH surgical respirator masks. The N-95 NIOSH respirator mask approved and recommended by the CDC and other federal health agencies can currently be ordered online through the Secure Components website at securecomponents.com. The announcement that Secure Components is opening up its supply to more customers comes just as new daily cases of COVID-19 are estimated to reach 60,000.
Secure Components is currently offering emergency sourcing for the Department of Defense as part of a long-standing vendor relationship. However, the respected supply firm is also opening up access to its vetted, trusted supply to be private and commercial facilities and businesses in need of reliable channels for PPE during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to N-95 NIOSH surgical respirator masks, Secure Components is also fulfilling surgical mask level 1 orders. Secure Components can confirm that it is making Niosh-approved and CDC-approved masks available.
“We’re anticipating an increase in demand for N-95 NIOSH respirator masks because the CDC and FDA have made some clarifying statements about N-95 masks being classified as single-use products,” says a spokesperson for Secure Components. According to the FDA, N-95 NIOSH respirators should not be shared or reused. Some breaking research is also showing that sterilizing masks for multiple uses can potentially drastically reduce mask effectiveness.
The N-95 NIOSH respirator mask protects the wearer’s face from airborne particles and liquid contamination. The mask’s design ensures a secure, sealed fit that is comfortable for long periods of wear. Facilities searching for N-95 mask sourcing can contact the Secure Components sales team directly by calling (610) 551-3475 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
