Medical grade PPE for running errands and everyday use
We have been in the PPE business since 2015. Over 60,000 dentists trust our medical-grade face shields to keep their patients safe during high-risk procedures. We have modified the face shield for the non-medical person and for everyday use.
Super Comfortable Fit
Our unique design makes it smooth to put on, like putting on a hat. Other shields may require two hands and twice as much time and effort. Furthermore, our durable ring is easily adjustable to precisely fit any size head. It’s also exceptionally lightweight and comfortable for prolonged wearing.
There are times when you may choose to briefly lift your covering such as while eating, applying makeup or looking into a microscope. Instead of worrying where to lay your shield down, you have the option of completely flipping up the front shield without removing it. When you finish, flip it back down and you’re ready to go
EXCEEDS CDC DIMENSION REQUIREMENTS
Our shields exceeds the following CDC guideline. Many other shields don’t. According to the CDC, “If face shields are used without a mask, they should wrap around the sides of the wearer’s face and extend to below the chin”
The SeeShield wraps around 180 degrees depending on how you set the size, and easily reaches below the chin.
HOW DO SHIELDS COMPARE TO DIFFERENT TYPES OF MASKS?
Officially, the jury is still out. There are experts who say that the shields are better for protecting others but the mask protects you. There are others who say the opposite. There are no published head-to-head clinical studies. If you plan on wearing the shields to places of business, alone with no mask, the acceptance will depend on your local guidelines.
For example, here in Southern California, our wearers report no problems going almost anywhere with shield-alone. Policies are subject to change at any time.
BUT JUST HOW PROTECTIVE ARE THEY?
To better understand the physics of respiratory droplets, take a few seconds to watch this video.
As you can see masks are helpful, but not perfect. Try the CANDLE TEST yourself. Put on your mask and get close to a candle flame. Can you make the flame flicker? Or can you even blow it out completely? Try that with a shield. Only a solid waterproof barrier like our shield can completely block droplets. Any porous material will allow some droplets through. Since there is also very localized migration of droplets through the cracks with masks and with shields, it might make sense that without social distancing, neither mask alone nor shield alone is perfect.
Combined with proper distancing, shield alone is excellent for blocking others from your droplets. Be cautious however, that you, as the wearer are still vulnerable to droplets if somebody comes close behind you and coughs directly into the side gap. Also, shield-alone is not recommended in scenarios where somebody’s head is directly below yours.
Help Halt the Spread of Disease
A common sense approach to help halt the spread of disease is as follows:
If you have symptoms of fever and cough, stay away from other people and focus on getting help recovering, keep diligent social distancing, and wear a mouth and nose cover or full face cover to block your droplets
