SugarHouse Industries wants to help send students and teachers back to school safely. We’re happy to be a resource for you to find high-quality PPE supplies in one place, at a great price, and that are reusable. Check out some of your options below.

For Students

Our junior stretch face masks are made out of a polyester/spandex blend fabric. It’s a no-sew design that attaches over the ears and three openings make it a one-size-fits-all mask. This is a lightweight mask that is machine washable and dryer-safe. 

The regular stretch face masks will fit older students.

We also have junior face masks made from solution-dyed polyester. It features:

  • A water repellent shell that protects the wearer from other people’s secretions better than soft cotton masks.
  • A soft interior liner provides lightweight, comfortable protection.
  • The wearer can label their mask with their name or other identification.
  • These masks can be machine-washed and dried or cleaned with disinfecting cleaners without compromising their ability to repel liquids, aerosols, and sprays. 

The regular washable face masks will fit older students.

For Teachers

Both our stretch face masks and washable face masks come in a size that fits adults as well.

A standard face shield is also a great idea for teachers including speech therapists or special education teachers. 

Lightweight, anti-scratch clear vinyl provides full peripheral vision while still offering front and side face protection.

The foam headbands hold the shield away from the face, allowing it to rest lightly making it ideal for extended wear. Closed-cell polyethylene foam allows shields to be disinfected and reused as needed.

  • Protects eyes, nose, and mouth from aerosols, sprays, and splatter.
  • Wrap-around design provides protection to the front and sides of the face.
  • Can be worn over other face masks and eyeglasses.
  • Closed-cell polyethylene foam makes them highly resistant to chemicals and moisture.
  • Dimensions (flat): 13″ wide x 10″ tall.
