In the world of personal protective equipment, RealShield™ Premium Face Covering is a leading-edge solution that effectively helps shield against the spread of coronavirus and airborne contaminants. Compared to conventional plastic face shields, RealShield is a universally-adaptable, highly-resilient face covering that properly covers the eyes, nose, and mouth. Not to be confused with clear PETG plastic or disposable APET face shields, RealShield Premium Face Covering is made from a durable polycarbonate known as LEXAN™.
Advantages of Protective Face Covering Shields
Face shields come in various forms, however not all products are designed equally. For optimal protection, the face shield should extend below the chin, latterly to the ears, and with no exposed gaps between the forehead and the shield’s headpiece. Face covering products like RealShield are appropriately designed for optimal protection and provide a number of advantages. Compared to medical masks that have limited durability and longevity, most face shields can be reused indefinitely.
RealShield Premium Face Covering is comfortable to wear and reduces the potential for autoinoculation by preventing the user from touching his or her face. Mask wearers often need to touch and remove masks to effectively communicate with others around them. With protective face shields, not only is verbal communication unobstructed, but they also allow for visibility of facial expressions and lip movements for speech perception.
Additional benefits of RealShield face covering products include:
- Simple adaptability, attaching to any visor, cap, or hardhat
- Shatterproof, lightweight, and protective against UV rays
- Easy cleaning, decontamination, and reusability
- Youth options designed to protect children
- Affordable, high-quality solution for small and large businesses
The Face Shield Covering of Choice
With physical distancing and stay-at-home measures no longer economically viable, face masks and face shields are the two primary options for personal protection. Shortages in medical-grade face masks have made it difficult for anyone outside of the healthcare environment to require such masks. In turn, many rely on cloth masks as face coverings, despite cloth being less effective than medical masks1 for the prevention of communicable respiratory illnesses. Vitro testing2 suggests, however, that cloth masks do provide some level of filtration for virus-sized particles.
Whether as an alternative or supplement to traditional face masks, face shields provide ample protection to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Similarly, face shields have been shown to minimize the amount of inhalation exposure to influenza virus, another common respiratory virus that’s spread by airborne droplets. In fact, a cough-simulated study3 showed that face shields effectively reduce immediate viral exposure by 96% when worn by a simulated health care worker within 18 inches of a cough.
There’s a reason why healthcare facilities, restaurants, businesses, and other organizations choose RealShield™ Premium Face Covering. In addition to its aptly-protective design and shatterproof resilience, it is a cost-effective solution to keep both workers and customers safe.
