The Drape Long Spit Shield, Model 18000L, protects law enforcement and health care workers against exposure to bodily fluids or waste. The shield can be worn by professional personnel or on a subject under restraint to prevent spit exposure.
The shield slips over the head, and once in place is difficult to dislodge. The shield becomes a barrier without creating a claustrophobic environment as the wearer has a good field of vision and can breathe easily. There is not a sense of confinement or restriction. The clear plastic shield allows law enforcement personnel to directly observe the condition of the wearer at any time.
