Renz has put its technical know-how and production expertise to good use to supply DIN EN 166 certified Protective Face Shields to aid containment of the Coronavirus as employers prepare to bring employees back into the workplace.
Initially, the Protective Face Shield was supplied extensively into the health sector. However, more recently, significant sales have been made into manufacturing, production and construction environments where staff necessarily work in close proximity with each other. The company has also seen considerable sales into patient and customer-facing environments such as surgeries, care homes, retail, bakeries, hairdressing, beauticians etc. as employees begin to come back to work and the economy gradually opens up.
Raphael Barth, Managing Director of Chr. Renz GmbH said, "with our know-how, our access to suitable materials, good cooperation with various local companies and the support of flexible employees, we are able to make our contribution to help contain the coronavirus.”
The Protective Face Shield provides both the wearer and anyone in close proximity protection from airborne fluid droplets and prevents the wearer from inadvertently touching their face. Worn in conjunction with a surgical mask, (which can be changed without removing the face shield) the Protective Face Shield provides the best possible protection.
The Protective Face Shield is high quality, hardwearing and lightweight. With 15mm thick forehead padding, it is easy and comfortable to wear. It covers the face area (eyes, nose and mouth) extensively. The high optical quality material used to manufacture the shield is non-reflective and does not fog up. The headband is easily adjustable for a perfect fit. It also sits well under a hard hat for use in the construction industry. Importantly the shield is held far enough away from the face for glasses to be worn.
Michael Schubert, Managing Director Sales and Marketing added, "this begins to broaden our position as we are now supplying into a completely new business field. We have plans to introduce more personal protection products to the market, products that will help protect against the spread of bacteria or viral disease."
The development of a website for this new product range is also in progress with the products of this newly developed division being offered under the umbrella of Renz Protective Equipment.
