Detectamet Detectable Face Shield / Visor

After a highly successful launch with our detectable ear savers, Detectamet’s latest PPE product is a new detectable face shield / visor. Designed to enhance protection from airborne aerosol particles, this product has a notched Detectamet silicone strap and a Detectamet sponge for comfort. CEO of Detectamet Sean Smith added “we’ve diversified our already extensive PPE product offering over the last couple of months to ensure workers in the food and pharmaceutical industries can continue to work safely, despite the challenges brought by Covid19. We have launched a suite of new PPE products designed to minimise the risk to workers and their colleagues. We’re really pleased that our face shield / visor continues that theme and our specialist PPE development team are keen to find new ways to develop our metal and X-ray detectable PPE range.”

Detectamet Detectable Reusable Ear Saver

Our latest venture into the PPE market is with our detectable reusable ear savers – designed to be attached to face masks. Created and tested in just 3 days, we responded to customer feedback that face masks can become uncomfortable wrapped around user’s ears after long periods of use.

Our CEO Sean Smith is delighted at the responsiveness of his production team, saying “reacting to an enquiry from a US-based customer, we were able to design, test and produce a metal and X-ray detectable reusable ear saver in just 3 days. Following the launch of this product last week, we’ve had a fantastic response from customers, with tens of thousands already sold, and we’re delighted to be able to offer products to key workers so they can more comfortably carry out their work”.

Available in 9 different colours, these ear savers can be effectively colour coded to enhance traceability in a factory environment. The ear savers are designed to allow the users face mask to be adjustable, ensuring a comfortable fit throughout their entire period of use. Detectamet can also create bespoke sizes (subject to a minimum order) to suit the requirements of the user(s).
