Collaboration joins leading face mask maker with creator of the ZShield line of award-winning face shields and breakthrough PPE products
RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aries, maker of face masks and barrier face coverings, today announced a partnership with ZVerse, one of the leading providers of face shields in the United States, to distribute and sell the Aries Work Week Face Mask.
The new Aries Work Week mask is the only face mask on the market to combine the best comfort and fit with a high-filtration, breathable design that meets national standards for barrier face coverings. The mask will be sold alongside the ZShield line of face shield products and can be easily worn together to maximize protection from COVID-19.
“It’s great that Zverse can now provide their customers with a face mask solution that offers the highest levels of protection and is also comfortable to wear,” says Chris Evans, founder and CEO of Aries Masks. “Covering the nose, ears and eyes ensures safety and allows the wearer to be comfortable throughout their workday.”
COVID-19 spreads in tiny droplets from an infected person’s mouth or nose when they cough, sneeze, speak or breathe heavily. Experts recommend wearing a filtered face mask as a minimum threshold of good protection and recommend pairing a mask with a face shield for superior protection.
“We are excited to be a part of this great partnership with Aries. The Aries Work Week Mask is the ideal complement to the ZVerse lineup of PPE products and delivers the protection and comfort our customers rely on to keep themselves and their loved ones safe during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said ZVerse Founder & CEO John Carrington. “As one of the largest manufacturers of face coverings in the U.S., ZVerse is committed to providing the best product. We are finding that our customers love the Aries mask for its superior design, protection, vocal clarity and reliable comfort and feel confident knowing when to replace the mask for maximum performance.”
The Aries Face Mask is currently available for purchase in a 5-pack. Each mask is designed to last for 40 hours, or a typical 5-day work week, and as part of a special bundle offer with the ZShield Ultra on ZVerse.com.

At Aries, we believe that wearing a mask should not be an unpleasant experience. What good is high filtration capacity if you are constantly removing or adjusting your mask throughout the day in order to breathe?
