WET INNOVATES AGAIN WITH WETCLEAR - A CRYSTAL CLEAR FACE MASK THAT ALLOWS FOR COMPLETE FACIAL RECOGNITION AND VISUAL COMMUNICATION
LOS ANGELES, CA: A woman is walking in the distance. As she approaches she flashes a stunning smile. Upon closer inspection it is clear that she is wearing a transparent face mask, making her protected but also seen. Today, WET, the innovative design and manufacturing company world renown for their fountain experiences, announced the release of WETClear, into an otherwise veiled world of PPE. WETClear is the first crystal clear face mask of its kind; ideal for educators, medical or healthcare workers and those who are deaf or hard of hearing or rely on visual communication. Made from clear PET-G plastic, with filters of Technostat® 70 Plus, a viral and bacterial filtering fabric blended from spunbond polypropylene, WETClear is designed and produced on site at WET's state-of-the-art facilities in Los Angeles, California.
WET CEO, Mark Fuller said, “I’m thrilled to be able to bring back facial recognition and personal expression. Our WETClear mask is crystal clear, light-weight, non fogging and comfortable—and allows us to see and rejoice in other’s smiles and their simple presence. It enhances communication and connection and allows for expression and lip reading, making it a perfect solution for educators and those who rely on visual communication. WETClear masks bring an added level of comfort and protection at a time when the world needs it most."
WET, co-founded by Mark Fuller in 1983, is the world leader in water entertainment design and technology. Writing for the New Yorker, John Seabrook described Mark Fuller as “the closest thing the world has to a fountain genius.” Mark’s WET team, he now insists, exceeds him in mastering the magic of water as the world’s most beloved element. WET’s innovative team of 200 has created over 250 public installations, notably including The Fountains of Bellagio, The Dubai Fountain, the Revson Fountain at Lincoln Center, the Fountains of Wynn Palace in Macau, Aquanura in the Netherlands, and the Olympic Fountains in Salt Lake City and Sochi, Russia. The firm holds more than fifty patents and has pioneered most of what the public experiences today in water features, from pool-less plaza fountains to leaping laminars, from choreographed water performers to fountains of pure fire.
