Face Shields & Face Visors from Solopress
Face shields are proven to be an effective way to protect against airborne droplets and splashes of liquid - something that is essential for healthcare professionals, key workers and anyone else who could come into contact with people who have been infected with COVID-19.
We offer three different options of face visors for you to choose from. Our Economy range are our most cost-effective solution and feature a plastic headband. They are delivered in two parts and require some basic assembly before use. Our Premium range come pre-assembled and are designed for comfort, with a foam headband ideal for prolonged periods of use.
Finally, our CE marked face shields have been tested by the British Standards Institution (BSI) who have officially certified them as PPE for use in containing COVID-19 and avoiding it spreading further. These face visors include a sticker across the top which includes the CE symbol along, with the option of adding your company logo or a message that you want to communicate.
We can confidently say that our CE marked face shields are effective in helping to protect the user against the COVID-19 virus. This is because we submitted our in-house made visors to the BSI for testing who confirmed that they conform to the PPE Regulation and EU recommendation 2020/403 scheme and are BS EN 166:2002 compliant. As a result, they are officially certified as PPE for use specifically against COVID-19.
Our face shields are made from polyethylene terephthalate, better known as PET plastic. This provides a solid barrier which will help to stop liquids and airborne particles from travelling, protecting the user and others in close proximity from coughs and sneezes.
All of our face shields come with an adjustable headband which means that they should fit most head sizes. Our economy face shields are supplied as a two-part kit which requires the headband to be easily attached to the shield itself.
Our professional and CE marked versions are delivered pre-assembled and along with the headband which is pre-cut with six tabs to allow for adjustment. They also feature a piece of foam which sits on the forehead to help make them more comfortable. This is particularly useful when the visor is being worn for a long period of time.
Face shields can be worn instead of face masks, with some feeling that they are actually a more effective and inclusive solution. Benefits include allowing for better communication and providing a physical barrier to stop people touching their face. For a more comprehensive comparison, please read our blog post about which face covering is right for you.
Our CE marked face shields are intended to be a single shift item for disposal at the end of a shift, and therefore are not reusable. In regard to our economy and professional ranges, the decision whether to clean and reuse these visors is entirely at the discretion of the person wearing them.
