According to US physician and epidemiologist Michael Edmond, Protective face shields offer more protection against the coronavirus than cloth masks. Reusable protective face shields provide full facial protection from infection causing fluids, spray, splatter and blood borne pathogens.
According to the CDC’s Document “Guidance for the Selection and use of Personal Equipment (PPE) in Healthcare settings” the best face shields for PPE protect face, nose, mouth, and eyes – Should cover forehead, extend below chin and wrap around side of face. When skin protection, in addition to mouth, nose, and eye protection, is needed or desired, for example, when irrigating a wound or suctioning copious secretions, a face shield can be used as a substitute to wearing a mask or goggles. The face shield should cover the forehead, extend below the chin, and wrap around the side of the face.
The face shields at faceshields-usa.com follow these guidelines and are reusable. Manufactured by Unified Packaging in Denver, Colorado U.S.A with quality materials.

Yes, the comfort foam provides additional space for dental loupes making it easier to provide patient care, also the elastic band provides some comfort adjustment.
At Unified Packaging we make the reusable face shields in our packaging factory, first we gather the 12pt RPET FDA approved material for the clear plastic shield, heavy 23pt thick polyethylene with heavy gauge for the Colored Brow strip, wide elastic for the fitted band and polyurethane comfort sealer foam for the forehead padding. Then we cut the RPET, Polyethylene and foam to the correct size and shape for the face shield, brow strip and forehead padding. Then we secure the comfort foam, clear shield, and brow strip with 3 lifetime guarantee nickel plated rivets. To finish the process the product then enters the sewing department where we sew the wide black elastic band into the brow strip so that the face shield fits sung and comfortable on the brow.
You may clean a reusable protective face shield in a couple ways, you may wash with antibacterial soap (like dawn) and warm water solution, rub gently with cloth to remove any visible soiling, then rinse with clean water to remove any residue. Fully dry the face shield (air dry or use clean absorbent towels).
You may also clean a reusable face shield with a disinfectant solution like Clorox, Lysol or Clorox wipes, simply wipe down the surface and allow to air dry.
