In order to avoid contamination and the spread of coronavirus, several methods have been developed by health workers. These are first of all barrier measures and then the use of certain protection tools. Among these protective tools, we can cite hygiaphones, masks, visors, etc.
But unlike hygiaphones, the use of which depends on the context, visors can be used in all conditions. These are shields adapted to the face made with crystal leaves. The use of visors is currently more recommended to replace masks which are less available. They are simple to use and also easy to manufacture.
1- Manufacturing equipment
To make a protective visor, a few elements are essential. The main material here remains the face cover. In most cases, manufacturers use a clear crystal A4 sheet. Then you need a simple elastic used for the pants, no matter the color. You also need a stapler and also a cutter.
All of these are easily found. Just go to a supply store and you’re good to go. Now you can show off your handyman talent. Indeed, according to health experts, the visor made by yourself may not be as effective as what is professionally made. But in the case of Coronavirus, it is always advisable to be protected, regardless of the degree of effectiveness.
2- How does the production take place?
To start, you must first adapt the transparent crystal A4 sheet to your face. Since everyone does not have the same face configuration, you will have to cut the transparent facial cover to the measurement of your face if the facial plane turns out to be larger. But if the latter in the initial state corresponds to you, then you no longer need to readjust it.
Indeed, the face cover must necessarily cover the whole of your face. These are the eyes, nose and your mouth. It might even extend to your ears. Then you take the elastic. The latter needs to be readjusted given its length. To use it, you wrap it around your head to measure the circumference. Following the measurement of this circumference, you divide the elastic in half. You now choose a side between the two whose ends will be stapled to the two edges of the length of your face cover. Your visor is finally ready to wear.
Make sure she has a firm grip on your head. The visor protects you from salivary droplets or flying particles from a carrier of covid-19 in the event of a discussion. You can therefore adopt it during this period in your company by making it for each of your employees. The advantage of using the visor is that it is reusable. However, it takes good maintenance.
3- How to maintain a protective visor
Like some categories of masks, the protective visor can be used repeatedly, but this requires maintenance. And like its manufacture, the maintenance of a protective visor is also easy. When you wear it for a whole day, it should therefore be cleaned after taking it off.
First, it’s important to mention that the visor pulls out from behind your head. You should avoid touching the transparent surface with your hand. The cleaning of this tool is done precisely at the level of the cover. Using an antiseptic wipe, you wash the inside and the outside of the visor properly in order to disinfect it.
In addition, although the visor is also effective, the hygiaphone remains the most recommended tool for large retail companies. Unlike the visor which only takes care of your face, the hygiaphone is a protective plate that completely separates your body from your person.
It provides counter protection, cash register protection and is also inexpensive. To buy a hygiaphone, it’s very easy. You can order your hygiaphone online. You can also find it in stores. Its protective capacity is well established.
