PPE Medical Grade Face Visors To Protect Frontline Healthcare Workers During Coronavirus Outbreak

During these unprecedented times, we’re working with the NHS to manufacture PPE medical grade face visors for infection control, to protect the frontline healthcare workers tirelessly combatting the outbreak.

Face shields protect the wearer's facial area against particles associated with COVID-19, preventing splashes and splatters of body fluids from coming into contact with the wearer’s eyes, nose and mouth.

They’re an absolutely essential element of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for healthcare workers to use whilst testing and caring for patients with Coronavirus, as the face has been reported to be the body part most commonly contaminated during procedures. Medical grade face shields are made up of Latex Free elastic, perspex or PVC and a ultra soft foam cushioning aid, to cover the face from the hairline and over the chin for full protection.

Our UK based manufacturers and warehouses are able to produce medical grade face shields daily, and are already gearing up to begin production for NHS Birmingham and Lincoln as of April 2020 - to help meet the ever growing demand for face visors for healthcare workers across the UK.

Our medical grade open cell polyurethane foam can be die cut or converted into any size or shape that is needed, as part of the face visors components, to add comfort to the wearer so the plastic shield isn’t directly in contact with the forehead.

Benefits of medical grade open cell polyurethane foam

Soft and comfortable

Open cell polyurethane foam is often used for products such as baby sponges and make up sponges, as it’s both kind to the skin and soft to the touch: meaning that it’s especially comfortable to the wearer. It conforms exceptionally well to body surfaces, providing flexible cushioning that doesn’t irritate delicate skin.
