As we continue to fight the spread of COVID-19 many businesses and employees are approaching things differently than they would have a year ago. We are now tuned into things like keeping our distance while waiting in line and what makes a good face mask. While this new way of thinking can sometimes be confusing, we are here to help you break it down and consider how to best protect yourself, your staff and your family.
We will start with masks as they seem to be the biggest, visible change to develop during the pandemic. Masks require a period of adjustment as they are often uncomfortable and inhibit communication. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of styles to choose from, so you can select one that best suits your needs.
If you are a merchant or business that is providing face coverings for customers, you will require a high volume of disposable masks. These 3-ply earloop masks are breathable and come in a box of 50. We also offer these black disposable masks as well. These masks are ideal for dispensing at your entrance.
This innovative product provides quick, economical face masks from a dispenser. Each roll has 1000 disposable masks with five different ear slots to fit any size - from kids to adults. These masks are customizable with your logo or message and are available in 10 colours.
Many people are looking for a reusable option for face coverings. If you are providing your staff with reusable masks, this option comes individually wrapped and 48 per box.
Save Your Ears
One of the downsides of wearing a mask for an extended period is the toll it takes on our ears. These adjustable ear savers live up to their name. They save your ears! As you attach the ear loops to this device at the back of your head, the pressure is on the plastic strap and not your ears!
Whether it’s teaching small children or a conversation with someone who is hearing impaired, there are many situations where communication is hindered when the mouth is covered. Fortunately, we have a number of options that allow the mouth to be safely visible.
A team of Johns Hopkins University graduates and alumni started developing the first fully-transparent mask in 2017. Even before the pandemic, Clear Mask has been supplying FDA-approved clear masks to healthcare workers, government employees and teaching professionals. With mandatory mask orders springing up across North America, the demand for see-through masks has skyrocketed! We offer the Clear Mask masks in packs of 24.
We also have a variety of other see-through masks. These masks are specifically designed for lip-reading. They come in three different colours and are designed for adults. This youth version offers an anti-fog window. These fully transparent shields allow for maximum visibility for communication but may not be accepted as a face covering in all settings due to their open nature.
Many businesses and offices require a temperature check before entering. Our Infrared digital thermometer offers accurate results without contact. This is a quick and efficient method for performing temperature checks.
Although not as common as face masks, there are some circumstances where disposable gloves make sense. We offer a variety of gloves to cover all of your needs, from our Reddi-2-Go poly gloves on a wicket to our Stellar vinyl disposable gloves.
