Sugarhouse Health makes waterproof and resuable PPE and is American made.
Romy Humphries is the Sales and Marketing Director for Sugarhouse Health. They started in 1941 and typically produce custom canvas products. They typically design boat covers and enclosures as well as awnings. After seeing someone was making face masks out of the same material, they realized they could adjust their focus to serve in healthcare. As an American made company, they wanted to do what they could to help and employ people in their area. The response was so overwhelming that they were able to outsource much of the cutting to other businesses that could help. In addition, they have employed smaller companies and mom and pop shops to help.
The gowns are made to fit the regulations and met PPE and healthcare standards. The material is called “Odessey”, and is impermeable to water due to the polyester structure. There are 3 different sizes and have an elastic wrist cuffs to seal around your wrists. The material is designed for outdoor use for years. The fibers are coated and woven, then coated a second time.
