Since our face shields are personal protective equipment, we do not accept returns for used, worn and/or opened items to maintain hygiene and prevent contamination. If you haven’t used or opened the shields and they are not right, get in touch with us and we will work with you to make it right. A 15% restocking fee will be applied.
Guidelines vary by state, but most agree that face shields are an acceptable alternative when masks are a hindrance. According to the CDC, if face shields are used, they should wrap around the sides of the wearer’s face and extend to below the chin3, which our shields with the drape do. Remember to also social distance and wash your hands.
Shield: standard size: 10” long; petite/youth: 8.75” long; Drape: standard size: 4” long; XL: 8” long. We recommend the standard size for most adults and the petite/youth for smaller adults and children; the adjustable band allows custom fit.
Our shield does not require any assembly; it arrives fully assembled and individually bagged to prevent scratching.
CDC Guidelines are as follows and at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/ppe-strategy/eye-protection.html 1. While wearing gloves, carefully wipe the inside, followed by the outside of the face shield using a clean cloth saturated with neutral detergent solution or cleaner wipe. 2. Carefully wipe the outside of the face shield using a wipe or clean cloth saturated with EPA-registered hospital disinfectant solution. 3. Wipe the outside of face shield with clean water or alcohol to remove residue. 4. Fully dry (air dry or use clean absorbent towels). 5.Remove gloves and perform hand hygiene.
The drape may be washed in the washing machine or by hand and can go in the dryer – it does not shrink.
Since portions of the face shield are open, the shield is much cooler than a traditional facemask or N95. There is no foam pad taking up the space between the shield and your forehead, so heat generated by the user can easily dissipate and glasses don’t fog up. The face shield does not impede normal breathing and is not restrictive while in use. According to Dr. Frank Esper, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Center, “you don’t get to feel the breeze on your face, but you do get some fresh air, rather than trying to breathe through a cloth mask.“3
The face shield allows communication without muffling voice or hiding expressions. While there is some noise reduction due to the barrier, the shield has more open space for sound to travel farther compared to a cloth mask.
All day – as essential workers, Universal Plastics employees have been wearing them since we began production in March and have remained safe working throughout – see pics below of our family! The shield is lightweight and comfortable, does not fog up even with eye-glasses & the adjustable strap made from soft bungee cord allows for a custom fit.
A face shield provides a clear visual of others’ facial expressions, making kids feel more comfortable compared to face masks which obscure the face. These face shields help kids recognize facial cues as they normally would. It could be fun to decorate the shield with your child or children to engage and increase their ownership of the mask!
No – however, it can be cleaned per instructions above. The shield may distort in higher temp. water settings – some dishwashers have a “sanitize” mode which uses elevated temp. water artificially heated by coils in the washer which may distort the plastic shield. In addition, dishwasher detergent is extremely abrasive & may scratch or cloud the shield surface.
Ambient temperature of the interior of a car in the hot sun with the windows closed can climb above 130 degrees. Extended periods where the outside temp. is approx. 100 deg., it may even exceed 170 degrees. Shields exposed to this heat for extended periods may warp simply due to the weight of the shield itself. It should not be left in a hot car for extended periods.
