The Ripclear V2 Shield is designed to protect dental staff and other frontline workers during the COVID-19 outbreak. It features 91% optical transparency so users can safety do their work while staying protected via a certified medical face shield, Ripclear said.

“We heard the needs of frontline responders and essential workers across the country and are producing an optically clear, anti-fog, foam-padded face shield that protects against spray and droplet infection,” said Ryan Doherty, cofounder and president of Ripclear.

“We are taking orders of quantities anywhere from 100 units to over 1 million units directly on our site and hope to keep as many people protected from the spread of COVID-19 as humanly possible,” said Doherty.

Each shield measures 32 by 32 cm and is 0.3 mm thick. Shields also are designed to be conveniently stackable and travel easily. They come with dual-sided anti-fog treatment and an elastic band.

The V2 has received medical device certification from the US Food and Drug Administration, a certificate of compliance from the CE, and a quality management system certificate from the ISO 9001.

Pricing runs from $3.50 to $2.55 each, depending on the quantity ordered.
