RKA is manufactuering NON N95 compliant face masks for YOU.
applauds the people that are at least wearing bandanas or scarves
RKA wants you to understand what exactly we are manufacturing.
These masks are not N95 compliant but designed around the Kaiser Permanente template for public usage.
They are made of the correct material and they are professionally made in our shop of 35 years. To understand why you need RKA designed masks ........
One 2015 study found that cloth masks only blocked 3% of particles, compared with medical masks (which stopped 56% of particles) and N95s (protective against 99.9% of particles, the study found). Healthcare workers wearing cloth masks were significantly more likely to be infected with flu-like illness, the study found. A 2013 study found that cloth masks made from cotton T-shirts, pillowcases, or tea towels should be used only as a last resort — they only filtered out a third of the aerosols blocked by a surgical mask — though it was found to be "better than no protection."
RKA is manufacturing their masks so they fall in that 56% group. NOT the 3% cloth masks (Scarves or plain cotton)
Who is RKA and why are they making masks?
RKA was started in 1985 and we have manufactured motorcycle luggage.
When this terrible situation started we had to lay off our employees and Kathy and I sheltered in place at our home and ran the business computers remotely and only went to the shop for shipping and receiving.
Once we became aware of the great need for these NON N95 compliant masks we repurposed the business to make them.
And we were able to get our crew “BACK TO WORK”!!
If you, your company or agency have a need for these masks give us a call at
707 836 7659
We hope you are all well, safe and everyone gets back to work sooner than later

|How long does a disposable mask last?|
Report from May 2018
|Report from December 2010
You may be suprised to learn that changing the mask every 20 minutes in a wet environment and every 60 minutes in a non aerosol environment and between patirntd is recommended
|No matter what you believe of the above information a disposable mask should be replaced at least twice or three times a day making usage of a mask 1 to 2 bucks a day
RKA mask is 12 bucks and reusable
In 6 to 12 days you have paid for it
