PPE Supplies in Raleigh

It’s often challenging for individuals and business owners to find a reliable supplier of personal protection equipment (PPE) anywhere in the Raleigh area. 

While most brick-and-mortar stores do stock limited PPE Supplies in Raleigh, they often sell out very quickly, and it’s anyone’s guess when they will restock. It’s a pain having to drive from store to store or call around to find a supplier that can provide you with what you need. At Reopen Supplies, we offer Raleigh residents and businesses a wide range of PPE equipment, such as masks, sanitizers, and protective shields. Read on to learn more about the various supplies we carry and how you can use them to keep your employees and customers safe.  There are five main categories of PPE supplies that we carry:

Hand Sanitizers

Sanitizing is key to keeping safe during the pandemic. Employees and customers don’t often have the luxury of washing their hands in a sink while in your brick-and-mortar business. Hand sanitizers are a great way to kill off germs and bacteria. However, not all hand sanitizers are created equal. The CDC recommends that you only use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, which comes in many forms, such as:
  • Ethanol
  • Ethyl alcohol
  • Isopropanol
  • 2-propanol
Hand sanitizers and the alcohol contained within are key to keeping your hands germ-free. As per the CDC guidelines, you should avoid all hand sanitizer products that are labeled “alcohol-free”. They won’t work as well as those that do contain alcohol.

Cleaners & Disinfectants

As the City of Raleigh and its surrounding suburbs slowly start to reopen back up, people are cautiously heading back out in public to do their shopping and business.  You can dramatically improve the trust of all those who walk in through the front doors of your business by informing them in one way or another that your employees are regularly cleaning and disinfecting high-touch areas. Cleaners and disinfectants, such as bleach, hand wipes, and sprays, can help prevent the transmission of diseases when used regularly. Cashiers can quickly use Alcohol-based wipes to wipe down POS credit card machines and the entire checkout area.

Floor Graphics
Floor graphics have become very popular amongst Raleigh businesses. They inform customers exactly where to stand to keep a safe 6-foot distance from one another. They also help instill trust in people—as they realize the business is taking measures to ensure their safety. Social distancing signage is a great way to inform your customers of hygienic practices, let them know your social distancing policies, or provide directions. For example, many grocery stores have directional signs that let people know they need to adhere to a traffic flow pattern to keep them safe.

Gloves and Face Masks

Face Shields RaleighGloves and face masks are here to stay for the foreseeable future. In addition to providing disposable face masks to your employees, you can have a box of them near your front door. You’d be surprised at how many people accidentally drop their face masks on the ground as they prepare to enter into your business.  Forehead temperature strips are a cost-effective solution for businesses that require their employees to have their temperature taken during their shift. They’re disposable and will provide an accurate temperature within 15 seconds of being applied to the forehead.

Protective Shields

Add another layer of protection for both your employees and customers with a protective shield placed anywhere the two interact. Made out of a see-through and heavy-duty acrylic material, these shields put a solid barrier between customer and employee. They’re easy to sanitize and clean and can help instill trust in all those entering your place of business. A handle at the very top enables your employees to move them from area to area. The access window at the bottom allows for easy transfer of money, documents, or other items. Best of all, they’re manufactured right here in North Carolina and can be shipped directly to your location.
