Phase 3 Marketing and Communications, which operates three print and fabrication facilities in Atlanta, Dallas and Fairfield, NJ, has created two healthcare personal protective equipment (PPE) solutions, clear rigid vinyl face shields and workplace protective acrylic barriers, to help protect individuals and companies during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Phase 3’s PPE Face Shield provides extended face protection for medical professionals with its 12-inch by 10-inch clear rigid vinyl shield face. The vinyl offers good clarity and the face shield can be easily cleaned with rubbing alcohol. The face shield is assembled with foam pads for shield distancing and comfort, and an elastic band that secures the face shield to the user’s head. Each shield will be individually polybagged and bulk boxed in sets of 25.
Phase 3’s Workplace Protection Barriers are acrylic, crystal-clear barriers that provide protection and peace of mind from the front desk to the production floor. Two styles are available, the freestanding protective barrier, which is movable and intended to be place on reception desks and the hanging protective shield, providing safety in other public areas.
The Freestanding Protective Barrier is available in a standard size, 23.5” x 31.5”, or jumbo, 47.5” x 31.5”. Custom sizing is also an available option. The barriers have interlocking acrylic feet for standing and include a letter-sized pass-through for easy transactions. The Hanging Protective Shield is custom-sized and includes hanging hardware, two s-hooks and four feet of cable per-hook to enable hanging the shield from any ceiling.
“When our country is faced with tough times, it’s refreshing to see the ingenuity of our industry coming to the forefront of finding solutions by retasking people, equipment and goods,” said Troy McGinnis, executive VP of print services at Phase 3. “We have raw materials and resources to help fight the pandemic by creating this new line and trying alternative healthcare protective solutions for workers, medical professionals, nurses, doctors and first responders that are caring for patients each day. Usually, our role is to inform and educate, but now our industry has the chance to fill in with unique ideas and materials to help where we can.”
