The American Vent Free Shield and Cartridge Systems™ have been affordably designed with 100% US-sourced materials to meet the U.S. F.D.A. Emergency Use Authorization guidelines as a source control face mask. Our system does not use the N95 mask's critical and in short supply meltblown polypropylene. Our locally sourced and N95 friendly solution means more N95 masks can be used by our hero healthcare providers. We can be safe and do our part to support the USA.
We are committed to meeting an affordable manufacturer suggested retail price of less than $40 for the AVF kits. A kit contains a shield, cartridge, recharge tub and accessories. Cartridges and masks should be cleaned after each use, and the cartridge should be replaced within 3 months of opening. Refill cartridges are sold separately.
The AVF System™ for COVID-19 has not been cleared by the FDA or approved by other regulatory agencies as a substitute for filtering face piece respirators or surgical face masks. The AVF System is a source control face mask which meets the FDA guidelines for Emergency Use Authorization. Source control face masks may help in preventing or slowing the spread of COVID-19. The AVF System should not be used in place of a surgical mask or filtering facepiece respirators to provide protections such as: liquid barrier protection, antimicrobial/antiviral protection, respiratory protection, particulate filtration or protection in high-risk aerosol generating procedures.
