The protective face shield has 99% light transmittance, features an anti-fog coating and an overall shield design for maximum visibility. The mask can be easily cleaned and can be reused many times.

The protective masks can be divided into adult models and children models. The elastic band and sponge on the head can be customized with LOGO according to customer requirements, and different styles can also be customized according to customer requirements.

Are face shields effective?

A 2014 study showed that when tested against an influenza-infused aerosol from a distance of 18 inches away, a face shield reduced exposure by 96% during the period immediately after a cough. The face shield also reduced the surface contamination of a respirator by 97%.

Face Shields and COVID-19

In the context of biological protection and COVID-19 protection in particular, face shields are commonly used in hospitals and other settings that expose workers to a high enough risk of exposure that the use of a respirator (e.g., an N95 mask) by itself does not offer sufficient protection against the contagion.

In these settings, the primary goal of the face shield is to prevent the virus from settling on the skin or potentially entering the body through the eyes.

Face shields by themselves do not offer sufficient protection against COVID-19 and are generally worn over a facemask. They may also be worn over goggles.

The use of a face shield is also recommended in situations in which workers cannot maintain an adequate separation from other persons. For example, customs agents and other high-contact transportation workers often use face shields as a means of biohazard protection.
