The Virustatic Shield has been designed & developed to reduce pathogenic microbial intake into the human respiratory system. Its revolutionary protein coating works to disable viruses on contact to help slow the spread of infections, this has been proven during testing against the H1N1 Influenza virus. In addition, the protein layer is designed to allow the mask to be touched without transferring the virus for non-hazardous disposal once used.
It can be issued as front line protection for key workers including passengers traveling via helicopter to and from offshore structures such as oil rigs and wind turbines. Its lightweight 360° 'snood' design moulds to the wearer’s face, allowing the shield to be comfortably worn for hours at a time and will stay in place even when approaching a helicopter with its main rotor in motion.
The Virustatic Shield is an anti-viral face covering with protective features. It has been designed to provide protection against viruses and has been proven to be over 96% effective against the H1N1 influenza virus. Further testing is currently underway to assess effectiveness against COVID-19. Please note, no device can guarantee 100% protection against viruses. The Virustatic Shield effectiveness is improved when used alongside the World Health Organisation (WHO) issued hygiene guidelines.
