KelTec Weapons Joins Fight to Defeat Coronavirus Pandemic
KelTec Weapons engineer Toby Obermeit is working with the Medical University of South Carolina to make improvements to their S.A.F.E. mask design as well as creating a variety of additional filter cartridge options. These designs will be publicly available to help fill the immediate needs of healthcare and first responders everywhere. The masks, when used with the correct filters, can be of N99 quality, are reusable and currently feature replaceable Roomba Filters.
“After Toby studied the original S.A.F.E. filter cartridge design, he then optimized it by making it faster and easier to print” said Marketing Manager, Matt Stanek. “He submitted this improved design to MUSC, and officials at the University were so impressed that they asked for help with the next generation mask design”.
