Following the outbreak of Covid 19, mosques across the KSA were forced to close their doors temporarily in order to help the nation combat the virus. Now, with restrictions being eased, followers can return for prayer, however certain measures need to be met. SHIELDme™ has developed a high-level disinfectant and sanitizing solutions to assist in the re-opening of mosques.

For citizens of the KSA, attending prayer at mosques is part of daily life, but that has changed over the last few months following the emergence of Covid 19. Due to the fact that the virus spreads from respiratory droplets, it has been advised globally that individuals social distance for their own safety. As a result, mosques have had to close their doors, but now, restrictions are easing and followers of Islam can begin returning to a new way of normal life.
Mosques in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have to stick to particular rules and measures in order to contain Covid 19. With that in mind, experts at SHIELDme™ have a range of products that are designed to keep your place of worship sanitary and virus-free. There is no doubt that our high-level disinfectant should be the only one you consider.
Mainly, because it does not contain a single trace of alcohol, nor are any chemicals used in the production of our all natural disinfectant. The formula consists of super oxidized water and hypochlorous acid (HOCI), which are natural substances that are safe for both humans and the environment. All men, women and children can be exposed to our strong disinfectant without worrying about possible side effects or irritants.
For Imams across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, you can take comfort knowing that if our high-level disinfectant is used in your mosque, it will be incredibly effective. In fact, our non-toxic disinfectant kills up to 99.99% of viruses, bacteria, spores and other germs. The SHIELDme™ technology and formula allows worshippers to pray safely, getting some form of normality back into their lives.
As well as providing the best disinfectant spray available in the KSA and organic hand sanitizer, our experts have built equipment and devices suitable for a range of industries.
The vast number of products we have created include the following:
Disposable Protective Suit
Medical Face Shields
KN95 Filtering Face Piece Respirators
PPE Protection Kit
Disposable Examination Nitrile Gloves
To help your place of worship adhere to Covid 19 mosque re-opening guidelines, it is advisable that you keep all surfaces within the building as clean as possible. Here at SHIELDme™, our experts have developed a range of technology that is designed to destroy any shred of bacteria, germs or viruses. One of the devices that we have manufactured is known as a disinfectant fogger.
The machine contains up to 5 liters of our non-toxic disinfectant, which can be sprayed on all surfaces without leading to corrosion. As mentioned, our formula is 100% natural, making it safe for everyone that comes into contact with it, including pregnant women. By using the disinfectant fogger on every inch of your mosque, it will help eliminate any risks of contracting Covid 19 or any other harmful airborne viruses.
The SHIELDme™ device comes with a unique hose design that can twist and turn into any angle, meaning that the disinfectant spray will reach even the most difficult of corners. Across the KSA, many mosques have large rooms designated for prayer, and if using traditional cleaning methods it can take a lot of time and effort to clean thoroughly.
Now, though, with the SHIELDme™ disinfectant fogger, you can cover the entire room in a short period of time as the machine covers 6-8 meters with each spray. The device also boasts a rotating sprayer and an air pressure auto-locking spray head. There is no doubt that communal prayer will be much easier once our high-level disinfectant has been applied to all areas within the mosque.
While there are many measures that you can take within the mosque, there are also important factors to consider before worshippers enter the building. It has become apparent that one of the main symptoms of Covid 19 is a fever, and SHIELDme™ has created a piece of equipment that can check each individual’s temperature.
The SHIELDme™ Tower has a touchless temperature measurement device that can detect a fever just by the individual simply standing in front of it. By implementing this crucial piece of equipment outside the entrance to your mosque, followers can double check their temperature before prayer. If an individual’s body temperature is too high, it is best that they return home to self-isolate or seek medical guidance. The measuring tool boasts the following features:
As well as checking temperatures, the SHIELDme™ Tower also has an automatic hand sanitizer dispenser that releases our organic hand sanitizer. So, as well as making sure they don’t have a fever, followers can clean their hands thoroughly before entering the mosque.
By using a non-toxic disinfectant and safe hand sanitizer, there is no doubt that your mosque will be in a hygienic state for dawn prayers, but there are other measures to consider. In order to create an environment that your followers feel safe in during the pandemic, you should instruct that they wear face protection and bring their own prayer mats.
We advise that handshakes are avoided and the ablution rite should be carried out at home before prayer. Within your mosque, it should be clearly instructed that everyone should remain at a 2 meter distance and it should be encouraged that worshippers bring their own re-usable shoe bag. As well as providing safe hand sanitizer outside the mosque, you could also make SHIELDme™ sanitizer spray available for use within the building.
By keeping khutba short and ensuring that all door handles, tables and microphones are regularly sanitized, you can create a safe space for prayer. Our SHIELDme™ products and technologies will go a long way to allowing mosques in the KSA to welcome back their worshippers.
