As we are waiting patiently for the salon re-openings, we would like to remind everyone how important stocking the right amount of PPE is. When salons open, strict regulations will probably take place in order to protect pros and clients. Visibility and being able to talk with clients are crucially important to hair and beauty professionals, but the close contact needed to deliver services can possibly put operators and clients at risk of contamination during the COVID-19 pandemic. Denman’s Hero Shield -developed for use in the NHS- is a medical grade protective face guard that is now available for hairdressers, barbers and beauticians.
Comfortable to wear, the Hero Shield is designed to enable clear unobstructed vision and effective communication while greatly reducing the risk of passing or contracting the corona virus. We think it’s a great idea!
A key item of personal protective equipment (PPE), the Hero Shield can be worn on its own or in conjunction with other protective items such as masks, head coverings and protective gowns.
As well as supplying over 1 million of these life-saving visors to the NHS, Denman is now making these available to our industry. The EU certified Hero Shield is a trusted piece of protective kit that enables doctors to get close to patients while greatly reducing the risk of spreading disease. The same product will allow hair and beauty professionals to deliver hair, skin and nail services with the same level of protection.
As the virus can be contracted through the eyes and nose as well as the mouth, the Hero Shield differs from masks in that it protects the entire face while at the same time, not impeding speech. Easily cleaned, the re-usable Hero Shield can be disinfected and re-used, even between clients. It can be washed in hot soapy water and disinfected with alcohol wipes or isopropyl alcohol. The headband component can also be washed hot soapy water and disinfected using suitable soaks or sprays.
The HeroShield comes flat-packed in packs of 5 for £25.00. Very easy to assemble; offers instant, cost effective and trustworthy protection to you, your staff and your clients.
Plus, as part of the Denman Group’s commitment to support health workers, 5% of all sales generated by the HeroShield are donated to the HeroShield’s charity which will supply free shields and other PPE to the most vulnerable frontline workers. Read more at https://heroshield.net/
