Numatic develops Covid-19 face shield

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Numatic's design & manufacturing teams have worked hard to quickly develop a Face Shield that is effective, comfortable, reusable and can be manufactured in high volumes immediately.

These face shields have been developed with and are currently in use with *Worcestershire NHS Trust, West Midlands Ambulance Service, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and The Gibraltar Health Authority.  (*Working Partners during response development and testing, no endorsement claimed or intended)

We’re normally known for our vacuum cleaners (most famously our Henry vacuum). We make over 1 Million vacuums every year from our factory in Somerset, UK. Numatic is a leading brand in the design and manufacturing of commercial cleaning products, exporting to over 80 countries. We have urgently re-tasked our Research & Development Teams, Production Specialists and Manufacturing Teams to work across projects where we can help in the COVID-19 crisis. 

Open source design

This initiative is aimed to provide an open source solution, allowing others to access this quality, robust, but simple to manufacture face shield.

We are happy to help with the supply of the connecting rivets needed for this design.
