Aero Shield Design Features
One-piece, see-through, hemisphere protective barrier, with rolling legs
The see-through barrier is made from cast acrylic sheet (PMMA) which is the same material already used and approved for the manufacture of baby incubation housings.
The process of forming the barrier results in a variable thickness over the barrier starting with 5mm flange and reduces to the top (the thinnest part) to approximately around 3mm.
Cast acrylic is a hard surface material with low absorbency and hence is suitable for treatment with any anti-COVID antibacterial surface treatment.
To clean the shield, alcohol free surface disinfectant is recommended to be used. Contact with high concentrations of alcohol or strong concentration alkalis will eventually cause minute fatiguing of the acrylic seen by casual inspection a sinter of light on the surface of the material. Using alcohol free surface disinfectant or soap and water, chemical attack can be avoided.

Aerosol (airborne particles), defined as particles less than 50 micrometres (µm) in diameter. The greatest airborne infection threat in dentistry comes from aerosols because they are small enough to stay airborne for an extended period of time before they settle on a surface or enter the respiratory tract. The larger and heavier particles are droplets that can travel up to 1 meter from the source and contaminate surfaces within that range. The smaller particles, droplet nuclei can stay airborne for long periods of time before landing and contaminating surfaces. Both types of particle are relevant to SARS-CoV-2 transmission since this may occur via both direct air-borne infection and indirect spread via contact with contaminated surfaces.
It is simple and common sense, Aero Shield provides a physical barrier to trap and vacuum a large portion of the particles reducing the risk of contamination.
Why do we need it?
We’re thrilled to introduce Aero Shield and invite you to take a moment to explore some of its key features. Take a look at the information below to learn more about our design and place your order now!
Dental aerosol clouds carry airborne particles including virus that causes COVID-19.
As dental clinics are opening post COVID-19, there are still confusions around measures need to be taken to have a safe operational environment.
Because of inadequate access to suitable Dental PPE, as well as insufficient guideline and regulations, healthcare clinicians are improvising protective barriers including Aerosol Box to reduce risks associated to the aerosol spread.
In such uncertain time therefore, clinicians must take common sense measures, above and beyond the formal guidelines issued by different authorities.
Dr Hadi Sanei and Dr Korosh Majidi of Hook Dental Club are introducing and manufacturing a new barrier design, ‘Aero Shield’. It will increase protection measures for dental clinicians. A simple design, but effective!
By redirecting and trapping the aerosol cloud into a more concentrated area, the Aeroshield,
1. enables a targeted suction, and,
2. reduces time required for the airborne particles to land on a specific surface so they can be cleaned faster.
