Over the past several months, there has been a spotlight placed on the products and services that the world considers essential. In March, most states issued orders for residents to stay at home and ordered many local businesses closed to combat the spread of the virus. One industry that has stayed open throughout everything is the food industry.
From grocery stores to food manufacturing facilities, these businesses have been called upon to keep the country afloat as it battles the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and California Industrial Rubber Co. has helped these places remain operational. For the workers in these locations to stay safe, companies have seen an increase in demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) on top of their established operational needs. Here are some of the vital products and equipment provided by California Industrial Rubber Co. during these uncertain times.
In addition to stay-at-home orders, many local governments have passed executive orders requiring residents and workers to wear masks when social distancing is not possible. While some masks provide better protection against virus particles than others, any face-covering helps keep workers safe. California Industrial Rubber Co. provides local companies with dust masks, which are meant to keep out dust particles and other small contaminants and are suitable masks for limiting the spread of a virus.
Respirator masks, such as those that can be seen at www.cir.net, feature a plastic respirator that allows breath to escape from the mask, which is especially beneficial for those wearing glasses. The N95 respirator mask is capable of filtering particles down to .3 microns, which is small enough to stop virus particles from penetrating the mask.
Respirators are a piece of PPE that covers both the nose and mouth and includes filters that keep out harmful fumes and pathogens. Some respirators feature an N95 filter, making them a perfect mask option for workers in high-risk areas. These masks are also capable of protecting workers against harmful materials such as asbestos and spray paint.
Food-Grade Conveyor Belts
Food-grade conveyor belts are an important piece of machinery for the food production industry. California Industrial Rubber Co. provides high-quality belts that help businesses in this sector increase worker productivity, allowing them to meet the increased demand for some foods during these times. The consistency and speed afforded by these conveyor belts allow for adequate spacing between food items on the belt, which may help increase the spacing between employees on the production line to better practice social distancing.

Other Sanitation and Safety Equipment
In addition to face coverings and food production equipment, California Industrial Rubber Co. provides the food and agriculture industries with vital safety equipment. These include products like Tyvek disposable coveralls, safety glasses and goggles, rubber overshoots, PVC boots, aprons, gloves, and more.
