Before hay fever season is in full bloom, accompanied by its allergies, it’s necessary to be well-prepared. Our R-shield neck gaiter is a dependable solution.
Most common types of allergies
Allergies are excessive reactions of our immune system to substances which are in common contact with our bodies. Exposure to allergens can cause reactions such as sneezing, a runny nose, burning sensations in one’s mucous membranes, or itching. Among the most common allergies are pollen, dust, and animals, with allergies to pollen the most common of all.
Pollen allergies occur in the time when plants are in their reproductive phase. The triggers are air-borne pollen from plants, grasses, and trees. The pollen lands in the eyes, nose, the bronchi, and on the skin, causing allergic reactions.
Great protection, not only against pollen
Proper protection of your upper airways can protect you from pollen and other allergens when you are outdoors. The R-shield neck gaiter features a nanofiber filtration membrane sewn into the portion that covers the nose and mouth, that blocks out not only viruses and bacteria, but also pollen and other allergens which cause allergic reactions.
To help protect you from irritable mucous membranes due to pollen, we recommend the R-shield Light. Its tubular shell is made from a lightweight material which is breathable and comfortable. It can also serve as a stylish and at the same time functional fashion accessory. It is also a practical companion when strolling city streets or doing sports.
If you ventilate your home regularly, it’s necessary to keep in mind that allergens and other harmful substances can enter your home via other ways than through the window. A dependable solution is our nanofiber window and door membrane in combination with our nanofiber A/C filter. Allergens can enter rooms also via doors and clothing. This is why the combination of the two filters is so efficient. The nanofiber window membrane captures those allergens which enter the household through the window, and the nanofiber membrane in your air conditioning will then filter out the allergens which enter your home in other ways.
How does it work?
The RESPILON nanofiber membrane, which is sewed in the area that covers the wearer’s nose and mouth, is a part of each neck gaiter. This membrane is made up from an extremely dense network of nanofibers which can mechanically capture even the smallest allergens, but also viruses and bacteria. What’s more, it works in both directions, and thus protects both its wearer and also the people around them.
R-shield’s tubular shell is made from a flexible material which provides outstanding breathability and elasticity, it wicks moisture, and is resistant against molds. Its special, close-fitting tubular design, embedded nose clip, and cord lock which lets you adjust the size or width of your R-shield, ensure no uncomfortable tightness nor headaches. It also fits almost every face type and face size. It is washable and needs no changing of filters.
R-shield is ideal prevention:
- against hay fever
- against diverse allergens
- against pollen which can irritate mucous membranes
Did you know that…
R-shield was created in response to requests from our clients/patients, who were forced to wear respiratory protection in public during the time when it was not yet “normal” and which often elicited negative emotional responses? That is why we decided to “hide” a nanofiber mask into a tubular fabric, so that it would help them blend into the crowd.
There is no need to worry about choosing the right size. Thanks to the cord lock at the back of your R-shield you can always readjust its size to make it fit to your face more closely. It is also available in a children’s size. The adjustable nose clip also helps inhaled air to travel through the nanofiber membrane.
R-shield is an ideal companion not just in places with airborne allergens, but also for sports and trips, in cities, for skiing, in polluted areas, in public transport, on busses, or trains. A handy case that will protect your R-shield from getting dirty, torn, or cross-contaminated by viruses and bacteria from manipulation or inadequate storage, is also available.
