We are now gearing up to supply NIOSH-approved N99 and N95 particulate respirators. N99's are even more effective than N95, and ours have an exhalation valve which makes breathing easier and much more comfortable during hot weather. We expect to start shipping the N99's around May 4. N95's and additional N99's should arrive around the end of June. Starting in August, we should be getting monthly shipments of each.
Unfortunately, the US is currently experiencing a wave of profiteering in these and other critical PPE supplies which is creating artificial shortages and is denying this vital resources to the front-line people who need them. Therefore, our sales policy on these items is as follows:
- We are prioritizing sales directly to end users in the healthcare, first responder, or other essential service fields only. Shipments not going directly to hospitals, public safety departments etc. will be required to provide proof of their essential service role. Businesses that support supply chains and essential goods etc. will also be given a priority.
- Our prices are exactly what we would charge under normal circumstances. No price gouging.
- Resale or export of these items is prohibited.
- We are limiting quantities to prevent profiteering.
As an "essential business", Safety Emporium continues to serve the public need during this difficult time. We and our upstream suppliers are continuing to ship products with the exception of respirator hoods and Tyvek clothing which are indefinitely backordered. We have removed the ability to purchase these two product lines until we can get firm [...]
