Firefighters know that danger is part of their job. The same can be said of steelworkers, pit crews, and tactical operatives. But you can’t fight COVID-19 with a hose, extinguisher, or a gun. It’s in the air, it’s all around you, and it makes it even harder to get an already difficult job done. That’s why in addition to our full line of PPE, CarbonX sells Defender Masks, created to protect users from thermal hazards and COVID-19.
