General Manager of Merchandise - Clark Rubber
Australian Made Face Shield

Clark Rubber is a successful Australian retailer with a history dating back to 1946.

In light of the recent events related to COVID-19, we saw an opportunity to use our expertise to assist the wider Victorian community by producing a protection product that is easy to manufacture and to use.

The Clark Rubber PPE Protective Face Shield design is lightweight and very comfortable to wear, with the inclusion of our foam inserts. It is easy to disinfect through the use of disinfecting wipes with our combination of elastic and hook & loop fasteners, making them multi-use as opposed to disposable, saving on landfill. All Clark Rubber PPE Face Shields are Australian-made by our locally-owned independent Clark Rubber franchise stores.

Features & Benefits:
• Protects face & neck from splash or airborne droplets
• Comfortable foam head support
• Elastic headband for easy fitting
• Easy to detach visor to disinfect
• Designed to conveniently fit over glasses & face masks
• Plastic visor is 100% recyclable
• Australian-made
• Adequate clearance for surgical masks and eyewear

Business Partner, Beauty trainer - Inspiring Beauty Training Salon
Feeling the love during the Corona Pandemic

I just wanted to share a story with you.  As a beauty training salon located in the heart of Bayswater, we, like many others, closed our doors back in March for what appears to be an uncertain period of time.  By doing so, we closed the doors to our 50 beauty students, 100’s of loyal and supportive clients and our small team of amazing employees.  We have adapted to online learning, no easy feat considering we are a kinesthetic industry.

About a week ago, my business partner, Natalie, and I were preparing for an online class when there was an unexpected knock at the door.  We went to answer it only to find no-one there but two lovely gift boxes left on the doorstep.

Within these gift boxes we found some beautiful handmade gifts, chocolates and hand written cards expressing gratitude for the work we have done during our time in iso, and it was signed from “all of your students 2020”.

To say we were blown away is an understatement and the tears flowed as we realized just how blessed we are.  Thinking about our students and the wonderful gesture reminds us everyday of the reason we are in this business and we look forward to the day we are all back in the training salon together again.
