As the outbreak of the COVID-19 quickly developed, to combat PPE shortages, we pivoted our manufacturing capabilities to begin producing high-quality face shields. Production and fulfillment are being handled by our holding company MediaBlink, utilizing our facilities in New Orleans. Our mission: to produce U.S. made face shields for everyone in need.
The response to our patent-pending face shield design was so positive and our face shields so well-received by a variety of industries nationally that we began offering them for sale to the public. First, we opened up the retail-centric FaceShield.com website for personal orders and donations, followed by the unveiling of FaceShields.com for wholesale and large quantity orders.
Our face shields use a clear laminate protective lens that offers distortion-free uninterrupted field-of-view. The polypro webbing head strap is available in a combination of colors. The comfort-padded neoprene forehead band is comfortable for all-day wear. The entire face shield is light-weight–only 1.4 ounces, which is the same as a pair of eyeglasses. We use a water-resistant binding tape for long-lasting durability.
Why Face Shields
Our face shields are ideal for those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, but are just as perfect for other industries and professions, like dentists, food processing facilities, restaurants and fast food franchises, retail and delivery workers and more. The face shield is designed to protect the eyes, nose and mouth, while allowing the wearer to communicate easily with others since the entire face is visible.
The shields are a big help. Especially for our staff in the therapy department. They consistently work in close proximity to our patients. The added barrier keeps both our staff and patients safe. And it definitely helps that they are comfortable.
The face shields are a great fit. Very comfortable and lightweight. My employees are able to stay cool when wearing them, since they aren’t too close to the face. They offer great protection for my staff and our customers.
The face shields are protective, comfortable and fit well. My medical partners are very thankful. The shields came just in time. We would definitely like more in the future.
Face shields are very comfortable and our nurses are able to wear them all day while triaging patients into our clinic without having to take them off. We really appreciate the extra safety that they provide us.
