With Sri Lanka’s police-imposed curfew gradually relaxing and life being brought back to the island in the coming weeks, George Steuart Health has stepped forward to aid in a safe transition back to normal life for the citizens of this country. Ranked among the top five pharmaceutical firms in the island, George Steuart Health is committed to delivering the best healthcare solutions at the most affordable prices.  

In response to public demand for safety equipment amid the COVID-19 pandemic, GS Health is proud to market locally manufactured 3-ply disposable face masks and is the first to introduce infrared forehead thermometers to Sri Lanka.

The surgical face masks are 175mm x 95mm in size and comprise three layers for added safety – the outer layer is made of a spun-bound polypropylene to prevent liquid splashing, the filter layer is made of melt-blown polypropylene, and the inner material is made of non-woven, lint-free fabric to absorb moisture. The masks also have attached ear loops made of polyester and spandex for ease of use, as well as an adjustable metal nose bridge. These features ensure that the masks are bacteria and epidemic resistant, as well as dustproof and water repellent. They are also latex free, free from glass fibre and have low resistance to breathability. The face masks have a shelf-life of three years and will be sold in retail packs of 50 pieces and 10 boxes per carton.

George Steuart Health is the first company to introduce infrared digital thermometers imported from Lepu Medical Technology featuring certified, high-quality German probes to the local market, and will continue to market the product to consumers and corporates in the coming weeks. These non-contact thermometers have zero risk of cross-contamination, with certified high-quality probes from Germany displaying temperatures on the screen in one second, making it one of the safest methods of reducing threats in areas with high footfall such as offices.

The thermometers are also convenient to use with features like easy switching between Celsius and Fahrenheit, coloured backlights that indicate temperature changes visually, storage of 99 sets of data, as well as power saving with an auto shutdown feature when the device is not in use. The thermometers also have two measurement modes that allow users to scan both humans and objects, and comes with a two-year warranty for all products.

Keeping in mind the country’s vulnerable position during this global pandemic, George Steuart Health brings to the market high-quality, reliable and trustworthy safety equipment to be used by corporates and individuals alike.
