The idea of AERE masks was born in March 2020, a period in which Italy had to face unprecedented challenges and difficulties.
Faced with the Covid-19 pandemic, the primary objective was to protect loved ones, which is why the demand for protective masks has soared.
The market has been flooded with a multitude of products, but very often not providing a clear and correct answer to the question.
Genesi by Somain Italia, found itself having to protect the health of its employees and collaborators in this emergency situation.
For more than 15 years the company has been committed to spreading the culture of safety with practical solutions for the protection of workers who work at height and in confined spaces.
The commitment of Genesi by Somain Italia extends well beyond the product, also covering the part of information and training for workers through Genesi Academy.
Driven by this emergency situation, the company has decided to expand the range of PPE products by also entering the sector of respiratory protection devices, with a new brand: Aere.
Aere mask, 3rd category PPE against Covid-19, is a product studied, developed and designed ad hoc, totally Italian, created to fill the need for protection during the Covid-19 emergency.
