ZVerse has created its fifth face shield design, ZShield Ultra, for both high-risk environments and everyday wear. ZShield Ultra is designed to be worn comfortably for many hours and provides full face coverage with a closed top to help block airborne particulates.
“COVID-19 remains a global threat and will leave a lasting impact on the way people interact with each other and the world. An increase in barriers, sensors, sanitizing stations, contactless transactions and, of course, PPE are just some of the changes that will be part of our society for the foreseeable future,” said John Carrington, ZVerse Founder and CEO. “At ZVerse, we’re committed to providing various PPE solutions. We understand each user is unique and has different safety needs. ZShield Ultra was created to serve those seeking a more enclosed, head-mounted design.”
ZShield Ultra is perfect for people who wear eyeglasses or are tired of head-mounted shields that tangle hair. The Ultra is made of Polyethylene terephthalate glycol (PETG), a thermoplastic polyester that provides significant chemical resistance, durability and excellent formability for manufacturing. It is also ultra lightweight, anti-fog, compatible with most types of eyeglasses and meets Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for face shields. The Ultra is ideal for workers in hospitality, education, medical, travel and quick serve restaurant environments.
The ZShield Ultra is now available for purchase, starting at $19.99 per face shield. Shipping is slated to start on November 17.
ZVerse’s line of ZShield products are designed to provide a comfortable, wearable barrier that helps users shield their face, mouth and eyes from spray, splatter, and the direct transfer of respiratory droplets. They also allow for clear verbal and nonverbal communication and comfort when masks or stationary sneeze guards are not practical. ZShield Ultra users should still practice social distancing, just as they would with a face mask.
