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.
The ‘snood’ style design is lightweight and can be worn with comfort for many more hours than current closely fitted face masks. It is safe to handle, reuse and effective for up to 200 hours and retains its protective layer for up to 3 washes.
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.
