The R-Shield Snood is a face covering featuring an incorporated nanofibre filter that is proven to block up to 99.9% of viruses, smog (PM2.5), bacteria, dust and pollen. The R-Shield can be washed 50 times which means it offers a long-term protective solution.
The snood is specifically designed to help ensure an intake of breath goes through the filter and not via errant air flows. To aid this, the design includes an adjustable cord and padded nose clip ensuring a good seal can easily be achieved for any face shape. Everything from the bridge of the nose downwards is covered by the protective mesh filter with a pore size of 0.01µm (one millionth of a centimeter wide).
R-Shield Light - For Sports & Hot Weather
The R-Shield Light is identical in appearance and construction as the standard R-Shield but the outer snood is made from a sports material similar to a hiking top. This gives the R-Shield Light more efficient heat releasing properties making it ideal for hot weather, sports, indoors or intense activity.
Dimensions When Laid Flat: 25 cm width / 32.5 cm height

The R-Shield is in UK stock and ships in 1-3 days on a next day service.
The patented Respilon® filter in our masks is a three-layer laminate with an inner layer formed by high-density nanofibres that are 1000 times smaller than a human hair. This ridiculously fine mesh has a pore size of 0.01µm (one millionth of a centimetre) which means even tiny virus particles cannot fit through the pores.
Most face masks have electrostatic filters, these typically lose 40-60% of their filtration abilities when your breath warms them up. Because our filtration is mechanical, the filter efficiency doesn't drop. This makes the R-Shield perfect for a work shift or outing that's over 30 minutes.
High protection face masks can be uncomfortable and difficult to breathe in. To get around this some don't filter breaths out, putting people around the wearer at risk in an infection scenario. Our nano-filter offers two-way protection.
Perhaps the best feature of the nano-mesh filter used in all of our products is the fact that it's very easy to breathe through, ensuring the wearer remains comfortable, even during intensive activity.
As with any protective garment, user diligence when handling the R-Shield is a factor in protection, so please remain mindful at all times when in use.
To ensure the R-Shield stays in good working condition, either use a delicates cycle on your washing machine or hand wash it in a bowl of soapy water that is 30'C or below, then leave somewhere warm to dry. The R-Shield is certified for 50 washes.
Please note that if the seal on the R-Shield box is opened, we are unable to accept returns due to the nature of the product.
