WHO is Providing the FACE SHIELDS?

Two Golden, Colorado-based companies - Table Mountain

Innov​ations, led by CEO Chris Crowley (pictured above) and the IX Power Foundation, led by CEO Deborah Deal-Blackwell have teamed up to distribute these Denver-made, brand new, un-used, fresh from the factory, high-quality face shields.  

 

Face shields do not replace the need for close-fittinng masks, but rather enhance the protection from COVID-19 and other diseases by totallly keeping mouth and nose spray away from other people's eyes, ears, and skin.

 

Shields also provide a double amount of protection for people wearing masks.

IX Power Foundation

"Table Mountain Innovation is excited to partner with The IX Power Foundation to bring desperately needed personal protective equipment during this difficult time.  With this donation from Table Mountain, and distribution through the IX Power Foundation, people and communities most in need can be safer and healthier.  We know that employees across the country continue to do heroic work despite the personal health risks, and we're happy to support them." 

 

-- Chris Crowley, CEO

Do the Face Shields fit over an N95 Mask and Glasses?

 


Yes - Emergency Face Shields are designed specifically to fit over an N95 mask and glasses or goggles.

Whether you wear corrective glasses or splash goggles, Emergency Face Shield has room.  Even if you wear rigid N95 masks with a plastic exhalation valve - you'll have room to move and breathe.

The shield also leaves room for a dental loupe approximately 1.25" tall, attached to a pair of glasses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Legal or Regulatory Claims


Emergency Face Shields are NOT a medical mask, they are intended for use by healthcare providers as a splash guard to reduce patient secretions and droplets from contacting the healthcare provider's face.

 

Emergency Face Shields do NOT claim to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.  Emergency Face Shields do NOT filter surgical smoke, viruses, bacteria, or fungi.  Emergency Face Shields are to be used solely at the discretion of the healthcare provider, and never in a situation which mandates Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR).

Do the Face Shields contain latex, natural rubber, or adhesives?


Nope - and this is good news for those with sensitivities or allergies.

Emergency Face Shields are 100% manufactured from PET polyethylene, an advanced polymer with good clarity, easy manufacturability, and safe for food and skin contact.   Most bottled water and soda sold in the US are in PET containers.  PET does not contain BPA or phthalates, and PET is fully recyclable.

How do I clean the Face Shields?


Emergency Face Shields are manufactured from "PET" polyethylene plastic and are resistant to common clinical disinfectants including bleach solutions, quaternary ammonium, glutaraldehyde, hydrogen peroxide, and alcohol.  Emergency Face Shields cannot be autoclaved.

 

Always follow your facility's disinfecting procedures.

Are the Face Shields sterile or impact resistant?


Emergency Face Shields are not sterile, and are not individually packaged.

Emergency Face Shields are NOT impact resistant, and should never be used in construction, machining, or other environments with impact hazards.  They are only meant to help protect a caregiver from patient secretions. 

Do Face Shields require   FDA approval?

 

 

No - the FDA says: "To help foster the availability of equipment that might offer some benefit to health care providers and the general public during the COVID-19 outbreak... 

 

FDA does not intend to object to the distribution and use of face shields that are intended for a medical purpose...  FDA currently believes such devices would not create such an undue risk..."

 

 

 

 

Are Emergency Face Shields manufactured in a clean facility?


Yes - shields are manufactured in a facility that makes both medical products and food-grade packaging.  All orders are double bagged to prevent particulate from the cardboard outer box.

 

The facility was recently audited by Merieux NutriSciences, with 50 years of experience in the food and beverage industry. Auditors scored the facility in 100% compliance to current regulations and industry practices in Food Packaging Product Safety Systems, Quality Systems (HACCP), Employee Practices (Good Manufacturing Practices), and Plant Sanitation.

Are the Face Shields PAPR compatible?


No...  Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPRs) are full face and head coverings pressurized with HEPA filtered air from a battery powered blower and tubing system.  PAPR face shields have specialized air supply fittings.  

Emergency Face Shields are a simple plastic covering from the forehead to neck and ear to ear.  They should never be worn in an environment where PAPR use is required or mandated. 

Do the Face Shields fit all head sizes?


We've made Emergency Face Shields fit most heads from XS to XL in both Men's and Women's sizes (19" to 21").

Emergency Face Shields work just like a baseball cap - adjust the strap to your head size. lock it into place, and put the shield on your head.

Emergency Face Shields are very lightweight, comfortable, flexible, and non-fogging.

Are Emergency Face Shields made in the USA?


Yes - Emergency Face Shields are 100% manufactured in Denver, Colorado.  The PET plastic raw material is domestically produced and sheet extruded in the US also.

 

We're proud that American companies react quickly to an emergency like corona virus, and can manufacture high quality, high value, personal protective equipment.
