COVID-19 Face Shields
As a custom high volume fabricator, Seal & Design is currently manufacturing large scale productions of disposable medical face shields. All components are converted at our manufacturing plant in Clarence, New York, and available fully assembled or supplied as a DIY assembly kit.
Premium & Medical Grade Materials
Our premium disposable face shields are produced from an optically clear Medical Grade APET with an anti-fog coating to eliminate fogging of the lens. A comfortable brow foam with pressure-sensitive adhesive seals off the top area so there are no gaps on the forehead. An elastic strap stapled in place completes the shield. These shields are easy to produce in high volume and protect the face from fluid splashes and sprays.
Protecting Front-Line Medical Workers
These shields are currently being used by our front-line medical professionals in hospitals combatting the COVID-19 epidemic along with employees of many manufacturing plants, medical labs, grocery workers, and many others that require an added safeguard from potential hazards while working.
- Coverage from top of the eyebrow to underneath the chin area
- Can be worn in conjunction with glasses or goggles
- Lightweight and comfortable for extended wear
- One size fits all
- Ease of assembly
DIY Kits AvailableIf you are only interested in purchasing medical face shield components, they are easily assembled. We cut the parts and you simply assemble them which could assist in keeping your employees working. We have taken on so many orders that we would like to continue cutting parts to get these shields to market but need the help of our communities to assemble then sell through their existing client channels. The elastic band will vary between white or black. Based on availability lens thickness could be between .005″ – .020″ thick. If you are in need of a specific size we can easily develop a new tool and custom cut to your detailed specifications.
Extra Protection Against COVID-19
Face shields add an additional layer of protection against COVID-19 when worn with face masks. While face masks help to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus from one person to another by absorbing the wearer’s respiratory droplets, face shields protect the wearer from the respiratory droplets of others. Face shields also help to protect the wearer’s eyes and ears against respiratory droplets while face masks protect the nose and mouth, effectively shielding the entire face.
Face shields have been used for years in the medical and manufacturing industries. In one study using a cough simulator, face shields reduced the wearer’s exposure to influenza by 96% after an influenza-infused aerosol was sprayed 18 inches away. Additionally, according to a new study from Hubei Province, China published in JAMA Ophthalmology, wearing eyeglasses for long periods of time may lower the risk of contracting COVID-19 because eyeglasses provide additional protection for the eyes.
Disposable Face Shields
Seal & Design provides disposable face shields that help to protect not only the eyes but the entire face so you can feel safe and protected against COVID-19. Whether you work in the medical field, manufacturing, food service, or retail, our face shields have you covered. We also offer DIY face shield kits with medical-grade materials. Face shields can be disinfected with soap and water, antibacterial wipes, and alcohol pads.
It’s still important to make sure you’re wearing a face mask and maintaining social distancing as much as possible while wearing your face shield. While face shields help to protect against coughs, sneezes, and other respiratory droplets that may contain COVID-19, influenza, and the common cold, they can’t protect you entirely on their own.
