The DynaPro Face Shield will provide comprehensive protection of the mucous membranes of your eyes, nose and mouth against invasion of foreign matter. It is made from polycarbonate for high impact resistance. For full facial coverage, it measures 33 cm in length by 22 cm in width. The shield will therefore provide complete facial coverage while allowing you to continue enjoying perfect vision (both straight ahead and peripheral).
The polycarbonate visor of the face shield also has an anti fog coating on both sides. This helps to ensure continued vision with no interference due to condensation of exhaled moisture. A comfortable head band secures the shield and will keep it in place even through vigorous activity.
Face Shield Advantages Compared To Masks & Respirators
In comparison with other forms of facial protection such as masks and respirators, face shields are more comfortable in that there is nothing pressing against the skin of the face and potentially restricting breathing or speaking. This also results in less retained heat, i.e. better ventilation for the face. You can also easily disinfect and reuse them. As pointed out elsewhere on this site, you cannot reuse masks and respirators without risk of infection.
If you wear facial hair (e.g. beard or moustache) you may know from our post on (K)N95 respirators that this hair compromises the effectiveness of such respirators. This is not the case with face shields.
Those who suffer from a tendency towards claustrophobia will be more comfortable with the feeling of greater space they will experience with face shields. Masks, respirators and goggles press directly against the skin of the face, whereas face shields do not.. They also provide all in one protection against all three mucous membrane areas of the face (eyes, nose and mouth). Of course, should you desire greater protection, you can always combine wearing a face shield with a mask or respirator.
