    Default UV Computer Screen Shields- New Zealand

    Just wondering if anyone knows where I can find a stockist of UV Computer Shields in NZ?

    Just started a new job and don't want to screw this one up, already getting a bright red burning face and I'm dreading it kicking off a flare, I feel rough enough already. I thought if I can find details of a stockist then I can go to my boss armed with all of the information.

    Hope someone can help because google is leaving me a bit lost!

    Thank you x

    I don't know if you have 3M over there but that that is what I used when I was using. 3M Computer Monitor UV Filters worked well for me. I can find plenty of places to order different kinds online here in the US but not in NZ. I will look this evening when I have some time (only had about 2 min)

    remember if you buy over the internet, from america...
    most small packages are delivered air mail.
    this takes less than 1 week to australia and new zealand.

    Sounds like 3M might be a good idea or perhaps they'll know of a stockist at work. I told them at the interview that I have lupus so there's no secrets there which helps.

    Thanks guys, I shall continue my search, just not doing very well with it at the minute!

    thankfully, where I work, all our monitors are LCD, which supposedly are low-emitting. However, I've got to be careful of the rooms' flourescent lightling. I wear hats and long sleeves (long pants are mandatory), and have begun to use sunscreen daily (which still feels weird). Good luck with the job.

    As jmail said, most of the new LCD are ok but I say most because some of the lower end can have small amount although not usually not enough to cause problems. I am so sensitive that I tend to err on the side of caution though.

    In the states the employer is required to make a safe working environment (within reasonable means) so if you can get a letter from your doctor stating that you UV Lighting makes you ill the company will usually supply the filters for you with no problem.

    Like Jmail... I had to wear a hat, long sleeves, sunscreen etc in my office every day. I know my clients thought I was nuts lol

    Thanks tgal I will have a look at those.

    Mine is an LCD one but I still seem to burn up something rotten. Worse than I do in the sun. The flouro light above has the plastic box thing over it...is that supposed to stop the UV? Or are there special ones you have to get?

    Depends on the covers. Some are more for show than anything else.
