Delta Innovates to Make Masks More Comfortable


Delta Faucet Company is on a mission to “Save 4 Million Ears!” In response to the COVID-19 crisis requiring frontline workers to wear N95 masks and surgical masks for protection throughout their shifts day after day, Delta Faucet quickly tooled an inexpensive plastic device that works to keep pressure from elastic mask bands off of the back of the ear. This significantly reduces irritation due to extended wear.

One of Delta Faucet’s manufacturing facilities in the Midwest has produced and distributed around 170,000 ear savers to over 180 locations across the US and Canada to help healthcare workers, first responders and service providers. Indianapolis Public Schools has also recently requested 70,000 ear savers for students and teachers as they return to the classroom in August. Delta Faucet’s ultimate goal is to pass out 2 million units as a part of their “Save 4 Million Ears” campaign.
