Flexible, Clear PVC Face Shields

Protect your face - from other people & from your own hands

Tough Face Shields that last - we know this - we've been using this PVC for decades

Made in New Zealand

  • Flexible - Comfortable with an elastic headband.  You can move your head without bumping rigid plastic into your chest or shoulders every time you move
  • You can roll our face shield up into a tube shape & pop it into your handbag - other types are rigid & can't be rolled up
  • Easy to Clean - We all have soapy water
  • Covers Your Face - Protects you from people, stops you touching your face
  • Gap at the top to allow your breath to escape & reduce fogging
  • Trim to Size - Fits all people
  • Re-usable for years - Good for the budget, good for the Environment
  • Locally made - Your decision - do you want to support New Zealand's economy or another country?
  • Fire Retardant PVC - Safer
  • Wash in soapy water, rinse in clean water & wear (polish with a soft cloth if required)

FAQ

The PVC has a crease or blemish in it.

  • Sunlight is the best friend of PVC - just pop it in the sun for a couple of hours & it will generally be all ok again & ready for its next outing!

Does the Face Shield fog up?

  • If you go from one temperature to another (eg from air conditioning to warmth) then yes, it will fog up so just give it time to acclimatise & it will clear itself.
  • All visors fog up so to prevent this, follow these instructions when you receive your Face Shield:

    All you need is a dishwashing soap and some soft rags.

    1. Put a small amount of dishwashing soap on a soft rag and apply it inside of the shield
    2. Next, take another soft rag and gently rub the shield until it becomes clear
    3. Now, put your Face Shield on and be amazed at how it won’t fog up even when you breathe on it directly!

Do I wash the spacer with the shield? (this is for shields with spacers - no longer required on the new model)

  • No - please carefully peal off the space bar/s & remove prior to washing.  If the Velcro does come off the spacer bar, just glue it back on.

It is too long for me

  • Trim it with a pair of sharp scissors to a comfortable size for you - see my trimming advice above

I can't get enough air around my face

  • You can tilt it higher on your forehead to get more air/space or trim it a bit - see my trimming advice below

The clear PVC has gone milky

  • Clear PVC does this if you put it away wet - get it out in the sun/light/air to dry

How long does the PVC last?

  • We have been using this clear PVC for nearly thirty years - it lasts outside for at least ten years

The elastic is too tight for me

  • We've had to make them firm so that when the elastic does ease off, the Face Shield doesn't slip down your face

The elastic is too loose for me

  • Sew a line of stitches to make it smaller - sorry - unfortunately we can't size for the full range of heads

What colour elastic do they come with?

  • Mainly black but we have had to buy whatever stocks our NZ suppliers have - our elastic is made in NZ

Should I wash it in the washing machine?

  • We would not recommend this

Is this certified for medical or hospital use?

  • We have not been able to find guidelines for this.  Given that people are printing all sorts of single use shields on 3D printers, there seems to be no specific standard.  If you are unsure, check with your organisation.

Cutting to Shape

  •  The Face Shields come with squared-off corners.  I have rounded mine off to sit more comfortably on me.  You can easily do this with a pair of sharp scissors.  I cut one corner & then folded it over to cut the other corner so they both looked the same.

 

When this is all over, don't chuck your face shield away - keep using it - in the garden, washing the dog, woodworking, waterblasting etc - it will be there to accompany you through the post-COVID-19 era that may or may not be a nice place to be!
