The outdoor product retail display maker shifts production to manufacture PPE products to bolster dwindling supply chain of critical protective gear
niversal Presentation Concepts (UPC), best known for consumer outdoor product retail displays and fixtures, announces today the new HealthShield™ line of personal protection equipment (PPE) products designed to help keep Americans safer by reducing possible contact with hazardous airborne elements such as COVID-19. The PPE products deliver easy-to-use and accessible products that satisfy federal, state and local guidelines for protection.
“With the HealthShield products, we have reinvented ourselves and our business,” said Dan Levine, marketing director at UPC. “This enables us to keep our trained staff on the job, further expand our offerings to retailers, offer value enhanced transmission barriers that are simple to attain and use, all at extremely competitive prices. PPE is here to stay. The whole company is proud to contribute to our new cause – protecting lives one shield at a time.”
Universal Presentation Concepts is also supporting public service workers with HealthShield. The company is actively making donations of the Face Shield products to local medical facilities, Madison police and fire departments. The company has plans to expand donations based on orders.
At the heart of the HealthShield brand is a group of dedicated employees who wholeheartedly support the UPC cause. Now, retailers can easily purchase HealthShield products online or by contacting UPC directly for bulk orders, custom sizes, special materials and custom branding.
The new HealthShield line is currently available in four quality designed categories to meet every retailer’s needs: face shield, foldable shield, portable shield, aisle shield and floor decals. All HealthShield products are easy to clean, lightweight and provide a transmission barrier. All can be ordered with custom printing.
To assist with consumer traffic flow in stores, HealthShield has launched a line of floor decals which include entry/exit, directional arrow and social distancing markers.
The Face Shield comes with an elastic head strap and finished edges. The Foldable Shield features a unique design with foldable side panels, requires no assembly and includes a pass-through slot near the bottom for safer hand-to-hand transactions. The Aisle Shield provides a great barrier between clerks and customers at the checkout aisle in retail stores. With finished edges, rounded corners and included mounting hardware, installation is quick and simple.
HealthShield line of PPE products will be sold online and directly by phone. More than 500,000 Face Shields have been currently ordered. With the capacity to make 15,000 Face Shield products per day, UPC is the go-to provider for any company or individual’s needs.
