Face Shields/Visors – Transparent Plastic (PVC) or PET
Preventative Measures are the most effective way towards remaining infection free. Creating a barrier between yourself and the CoronaVirus (COVID-19) has been shown to slow down and reduce infection rates drastically. Personal Protection Equipment such as Face Shields are not only durable, they are endlessly reusable, simply requiring cleaning with soap and water or common disinfectants.
Face Shields provide an all-inclusive protective barrier across vulnerable areas such as eyes, nose and mouth. Shields have a number of advantages over masks. First of all, they are reusable, requiring cleaning with soap and water or a disinfectant. Visors are also more comfortable to wear than cloth masks, and they form a barrier that keeps people from touching their face and this greatly reduces the risk of infection*.
Typically when speaking, people sometimes pull down a mask to make it easier to speak—but that isn’t necessary with a face shield. Furthermore, the use of a Face Shield allows for visibility of facial expressions and lip movements for speech perception due to it being transparent.
