The education sector throughout Egypt was hit massively when Covid-19 first appeared. For months, schools have remained shut with students unable to attend for fear of contracting the virus. As schools begin to look forward to re-opening, it’s important that certain steps be taken, including implementing a strict cleaning routine. This is something SHIELDme™ can help with.

Schools are as integral to Egyptian society as they are anywhere else in the world. Without them, future generations would not be ready to take the reins when the time comes. So, it was a massive blow when said institutions had to close. Children were cut off from their teachers and the resources they needed to assist with their studies. While stop-gap measures were put in place, such as remote learning, these are a poor substitute for classroom-based learning.
However, in recent weeks, the virus’s progress has begun to slow. With new guidelines being issued, schools can now look to open their doors once more. In order to meet these guidelines, teachers must ensure strict cleaning regimes are observed that utilize a high-level disinfectant. Organic hand sanitizer products should also be provided to ensure children and staff can keep their hands clean.
Of course, you don’t want to be using any harmful chemicals around children, but the good news is that SHIELDme™ have developed a product that’s 100% natural. Our strong disinfectant is non-toxic, a non-irritant, non-corrosive, chemical-free, and alcohol-free. It is harmless to humans but kills 99.99% of lethal pathogens at an instant exposure.
This includes bacteria, viruses, fungi, molds, and spores – all can be quickly and safely eradicated by our proven HOCl-based formula. HOCl, or hypochlorous acid, is produced by our white blood cells to help fight off infection. We combine this with super oxidized water, which is a novel solution used in wound care to create an unbeatable combination. It’s safe to use on skin, harmless if ingested, and won’t impact air quality. Plus, it can be used as a spray or in a vaporized form depending on the intended outcome.
As such, you can use our high-level disinfectant either in a spray bottle or in a sanitizing tunnel or electric cold fogger (both products we supply). This makes it an efficient product for daily cleaning as well as cleaning as you go.
For added protection, our hand sanitizer can be added to automated dispensers for easy sanitizing of hands throughout the day. And we offer other products too, including:
Fever Detection Towers
Protective Face Coverings
KN95 Filtering Face Piece Respirators
Every single day, schools throughout Egypt play host to thousands of students and teachers. While you can sanitize everything from top-to-bottom, by the end of the day, it will need doing all over again. This is made all-the-more painstaking by having to use a spray bottle and cloth, but what if there were a better way? With the SHIELDme™ Disinfectant Fogger, there is.
The Disinfectant Fogger allows for rapid-fast coverage of an entire room – even a room as large as a sports hall. The process is simple – this portable device vaporizes our high-level disinfectant, turning it into a fog or mist. It can spray anywhere from 6 – 8m, and with the rotating sprayer head and flexible hose, maximum distribution can be achieved. The vapor seeps into every crevice, eliminating pathogens wherever they lurk.
The fogger can cover a large area thanks to the 5L storage tank, and the fogger itself is lightweight, so can be easily carried about. The vapor is comprised of our non-toxic and non-corrosive formula, so it won’t damage anything or impact air quality. And the vapor dissipates quickly too, so no wet surfaces, walls, floors, or furniture will be left behind – just a well-sanitized room.
Our electric cold foggers don’t need any priming and can greatly reduce the time it takes to disinfect an entire room.
A summary of the excellent features of our SHIELDme™ Disinfectant Fogger includes:
5 Liter Capacity
Rotating Sprayer Head
Air Pressure Auto-Locking Spray Head
Spray Distance of 6 – 8m
Lightweight, Portable Design
Throughout the day, our hands pick up germs from whatever they happen to touch. Our hands can even pick up germs floating through the air, such as airborne respiratory droplets. Said germs can be easily spread to other surfaces. Face touching is a common way in which germs find their way into our bodies – a common way which can be easily eliminated by using our safe hand sanitizer.
While it’s suggested you wash your hands with hot water and soap for at least 20 seconds, this isn’t always possible. Having an automated sanitizer dispenser on hand provides an excellent, equally effective alternative. It’s ideal for those times where handwashing facilities are not readily available. Each motion-activated dispenser can be filled with our organic hand sanitizer that’s kind to hands and lethal to 99.99% of harmful pathogens.
Place these dispensers in classrooms, corridors, and communal areas for the best results. Just one squirt on each hand is sufficient to completely cleanse the skin of germs. It takes just seconds and because our sanitizer is chemical-free, it won’t leave an odor and won’t cause any harm if any of the sanitizer is ingested. It dries quickly too, so no hand towels are necessary.
It’s important to remember that there are other steps you can take to keep your students and staff safe. As well as using our SHIELDme™ products, such as our all-natural disinfectant and safe hand sanitizer, we also recommend using our sanitizing tunnels and fever detection towers for maximum benefit. Schools should also adhere closely to the Covid-19 guidelines set out by the Egyptian government.
Social distancing must be observed with markers set out to remind students and teachers of how far to stand apart from each other. Classroom layouts should likewise be reorganized to permit distancing to occur. One-way systems should be established, and class sizes limited to minimize the number of children coming into contact with one another.
Finally, you can also stagger playtimes and create designated playground areas to keep children and teachers even safer.
