The Canadian Shield is a durable assembly of clear plastic made for use as PPE, or personal protective equipment. The Shield protects from exposure to hazardous droplets by providing coverage from ear-to-ear and hairline to neck.
The Vizor is a unique, patent-pending PPE solution created by The Canadian Shield. Unlike previous face covering solutions including face shields, goggles, or welded face masks with shields, the Vizor is an attachable eye shield that is compatible with almost any procedural or surgical-style mask.
The Vizor is tested to comply with CSA Z94 (Section 11.1)
Thank you, I work at Grand River Hospital as a Medical Radiation Technologist. I have one of your shields and I appreciate the work you put into it and getting it those of us working on the front-lines!Kitchener, ON
Thank you so much for sending the shields to my office. I work with elderly people that struggle to read my lips when I am performing hearing tests. This is awesome. Great work.

The reusable nature of your face shields is what sets them apart. We’ve been cleaning centrally now for weeks and they seem to be holding up well. Far better sustainable solution than a single use item. Thanks for your ingenuity and helping keep us all safe.Toronto, ON

However, for the average individual, with proper cleaning and care your shields can last far beyond 15 uses. Many of our staff members use the same shield for weeks on end.
The most common problems found with all shields after extended use are scratches. However, our shield is made of 0.017” thick plastic — double the thickness of most shields on the market, which means it has the capacity to last much longer.er questions in as much detail as possible for your customers.
We always recommend wearing a mask with your face shield as it will provide the most protection. That being said, for those who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons, a face shield is better than no PPE at all.
We chose to design our shields without foam at the top to ensure that the entirety of the shield would be disinfectable. Once a foam headband is used, it cannot be disinfected and is therefore not recommended for reuse.
Many dentists and dental hygienists have used our face shields with dental loupes and headlights. If you’re looking for more information about the use of our shields in the dental industry, you can find more information by clicking here.
