on the lookout to improve my masks and I have found another one.
elastic is now totally adjustable, even after the quality 3/4 inch elastic
gives out. For years have looked for a better way to attach and work the
elastic that holds your masks on. Have found a better way. It takes more
time to add this feature but it is very handy for adjusting the tightness
of your mask and wonderful when the elastics life is giving out. This
new system is simple and effective enabling the actor to adjust their
mask elastic tightness to his or her comfort and need.
you are doing lots of spins, gymnastics at high speed etc...you may need
a custom advance elastic holding system. Let me know and will engineer
a system for your needs.
Masks come with adjustable elastics.
Neoprene Latex Masks there is a $3 charge if you would like to
add adjustable elastic on your mask.
In my masks, all elastics (that are used to hold the masks on to your
face) are securely attached to the mask. Giving a clean edges on the
sides of the mask. No rivets or strange attachments. Yes it takes much
longer to attach the elastics this way, but it lasts a long time.
Rivets, No Distracting Attachments to hold on the elastic:
Many mask makers use rivets in the side of their masks to hold the elastic
on. It is quick, simple and cheaper to do. Three problems I have seen
with this :
1: have not seen a rivet that will not corrode (rust) on a mask.
2: The rivet weakens the holding point of the elastic and it will break
in time or the rivet will pull out of the leather or neoprene latex.
3: In addition, I think the rivets detract from the character of the mask.
Elastic quality is something that I have always been concerned
with. Being in NYC and having access to the NYC Garment Center I acquired
durable high quality fresh non-roll 3/4 inch elastic made in the
USA. The life of this elastic extend beyond everyday common elastic or
the small 1/2 elastic which is never use because it is to weak for long
lasting and durable wear.
the cost of my neoprene latex masks low for you. Neoprene Latex Masks
without adjustable elastics are available because I understand
people and organizations sometimes have tight budgets and a few dollars
can make a difference. This is why I offer adjustable elastic and lining
as add-on features. This keeps prices lower and give you the option of
ordering adjustable elastic on your masks.
