As Ireland continues to adapt to the “new normal” in terms of Covid-19, the importance of adequate face coverings has become more important than ever, particularly in light of the recent announcement by Government that face coverings are to become mandatory in shops. While recent legislation from government making face coverings mandatory on public transport has been clear and well adhered to, the new guidelines mean that the general public will now also be expected to wear face coverings in a range of other settings for the foreseeable future.
As an established supplier of 3D printed face shield products, 3D Technology Ltd. founder James Wall has witnessed a sharp uptake on face shields versus traditional face masks since the introduction of the various guidelines and legislation from government. “At the onset of the pandemic, the preferred choice of both businesses and the public was the traditional face masks that would be common place in hospitals. As the situation has evolved, however, there has been a move towards face shields which provide greater durability and comfort to the user. And most importantly, they allow much clearer communication as the face of the user is entirely visible, something that is particularly relevant for people with hearing difficulties.”
As demand for face shields has grown over the last number of months, 3D Technology Ltd., along with sister company MedScan3D, have been at the forefront of a range of innovative face shield products for a range of sectors including General Purpose Face Shields, Construction Face Shields and Adjustable Face Shields.
Most recently, the company has launched the new antimicrobial AMBI Face Shield, a product that MedScan 3D Technical Director Jacqui O’Connor is particularly pleased with. “Our new AMBI Safe antimicrobial face shield is the only one of its kind on the market. The material has an integrated active ingredient which makes it effective against antimicrobial growth, therefore it will not need to be sterilised or autoclaved. This means companies can save time while relieving any concerns with regards to contamination.”
As businesses and the general public continue to adapt to new Covid-19 guidelines and legislation it’s clear that 3D printed face shields will play an ever greater role in protecting both workers and the general public in the future.
