The R-Shield Eco Snood is a face covering featuring an incorporated nanofibre filter in the front 180⁰ (ear to ear protection) that is certified to capture 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, dust, pollen and diesel particles from the air. The R-Shield can be washed 50 times which means it offers a long-term protective solution.
The snood is specifically designed for tight fitting around the face (and jaw) to help ensure an intake of breath goes through the filter and not via errant air flows. To aid this, the design includes an adjustable cord and padded nose clip ensuring a good seal can easily be achieved for any face shape. Everything from the bridge of the nose downwards is covered by the protective mesh filter with a pore size of 0.01µm (0.01 microns).
The R-Shield is an eco-friendly product made in the EU from recyclable materials. For every snood sold, a donation is made to green causes. Snoods marked with Charity Jam are limited edition with a portion of sales donated to disability charities.
R-Shield Light - For Sports, Warm Weather & Indoors
The R-Shield Light is identical in appearance and construction as the standard R-Shield but rather than high quality cotton, the outer snood is made from a sports material that has better moisture and heat releasing properties. This provides a good choice where the R-Shield may be used as protection during hot weather, intensive sport or indoors as well as outside.
Wearing a face covering or mask in shops and supermarkets in England was made mandatory from 24 July 2020. With a filter certified to block 99.9% of virus particles, the washable and recyclable R-Shield offers 6 months of comfort and protection.
This item is in UK stock and ships 1-3 days from order placement on a next day service.
The patented Respilon® filter in our masks is a three-layer laminate with an inner layer formed by high-density nanofibres that are 1000 times smaller than a human hair. This ridiculously fine mesh has a pore size of 0.01µm (0.01 microns) which means only air gets through - even tiny virus particles cannot fit through the pores.
Other widely available chemical-based face masks typically lose 40-60% of their filtration abilities when your breath warms them up. Because our filter doesn't rely on chemicals, the filter efficiency isn't affected in the same way.
High protection face masks can be uncomfortable and difficult to breathe in. To get around this some don't filter breaths out, putting people around the wearer at risk in an infection scenario. Our nano-filter offers two-way protection.
Perhaps the best feature of the nano-mesh filter used in all of our products is the fact that it's very easy to breathe through, ensuring the wearer remains comfortable, even during intensive activity.
As with any protective garment, user diligence when handling the R-Shield is a factor in protection, so please remain mindful at all times when in use.
To ensure the R-Shield stays in good working condition, hand wash it carefully in a bowl of soapy water that is 30'C or below, gently wring it out and leave somewhere warm (not hot) to dry.
For optimum protection and hygiene, we recommend replacing the scarf every 6 months depending on usage. The scarf can be washed 50 times.
