RealShield Face Covering Earns ANSI Certification and CPSIA Compliance

Realshield premium face coveringRealShield by Racing Optics Inc., a premium face covering made in the USA, is certified by both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and deemed compliant by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), making it the safest face shield on the market.

While ANSI standards are what Federal OSHA refers to as the “criteria for determining face shield acceptability,” the adult size and youth-size RealShield are ANSI Z-87.1-2020 certified for eye and face protection and the adult model is ANSI Z-87.1-2020 (D3) certified for eye and face splash protection. “The RealShield face shield meets the stringent OSHA requirements in accordance with the ANSI Z87.1 D3 standards,” said Roger Cone, Principal.

CPSIA, a landmark consumer product safety law, contains regulations that intend to make products for children under age 12 safer. They do this by requiring manufacturers and importers to prove products do not have harmful levels of lead and phthalates. RealShield’s youth-sized face shield fits most  3 to 10-year-old children.

“The protection of people and surfaces is at the heart of Racing Optics Inc., so we had our team design RealShield from scratch using the latest findings from experts and scientists,” says Bart Wilson, President of Racing Optics, Inc. “We knew it was critical to obtain the proper certifications, and approvals from governmental entities as well, to prove our product is the best face shield available for families.”

Announcing the change

Racing Optics first announced the production of the patent-pending RealShield PPE technology following shutdowns across the globe. The innovative shield design harnesses decades of product design experience.  It delivers a low-cost, reusable face shield that is 15 mil thick and shatterproof to protect the eyes, nose, and mouth from airborne droplets. RealShield by Racing Optics Inc., continues to be  the gold standard for PPE.

The company currently produces two sizes: one for adults and another for youth. Both of these sizes are available in retail packs of four face shields.
