The Effectiveness of Plastic Face Shields

The Effectiveness of Plastic Face Shields
Here at Printex Transparent Packaging, we want our customers to stay as safe as possible in these very difficult times. That’s why we offer plastic face shields as a way to protect against the spread of COVID-19. There are a few benefits to plastic face shields over masks. In this article, we will look at the effectiveness of plastic face shields.

Eye Protection

One of the major downsides of simply using a cloth face mask is that it does not cover one’s eyes. Eyes have a larger part to play in the spread of viruses than you might initially think. A cough or sneeze that may be blocked by a face mask from entering the mouth or nose could still enter the body through the soft tissue around the eyes. Plastic face masks are useful when the immediate risk of eyes encountering small particulates of the virus is high, such as in healthcare facilities.

Combination With Masks

The most effective way to lower your chances of transmission, besides regular hand-washing and social distancing, is to wear both a face mask and a face shield over the top of it. In this way, the face shield and the mask work together. The mask becomes more effective at blocking airborne pathogens because fewer particulates are making their way into the mask with the presence of the face shield.

Reduction in Face Touching

Perhaps one of the most annoying things about face masks is their tendency to not always fit properly over individual noses and mouths. This can lead to constant readjusting of the face mask, introducing anything that may be on your hands into the mask itself. Even worse, adjusting the mask can allow particulates to slip around the side of them. A plastic face shield reduces the need to put your hands anywhere near your face, thus reducing the risk of transmission.

If you are going to utilize face shields for protection, then it is important to understand the effectiveness of plastic face shields. Printex Transparent Packaging is more than just clear box packaging, and we want to make sure that you and those you care about are safe throughout these changes to our lives.
