1,000 Face visors in production at Wath Upon Dearne based print production facility
A generous donation of 1000 face visors ensures protective equipment is accessible to staff at Rotherham General Hospital fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
Rotherham based printing firm, instantprint have generously donated 1000 plastic face visors to Rotherham General Hospital on the 1st May to help protect hospital staff during the Covid-19 outbreak.
The UK’s largest online printing company, instantprint, has transformed a part of our production facility capable of manufacturing protective face visors. The facial shields are designed to protect key workers against splashes, sprays and spatter of bodily fluids.
Although not known for the production of protective equipment, the printing firm is keen to do as much as they can to help the nation stay protected against coronavirus and is producing up to 500 face visors per day.
Jon Constantine-Smith, Head of instantprint said; “Helping our small business customers is at the heart of everything we do. With a worldwide shortage of PPE, we quickly assessed our supply chain and in-house capabilities and knew we could quickly create face visors that will help protect essential workers and mitigate the spread of Covid-19.
“Myself and the team at instantprint are in awe of the NHS staff that are working tirelessly to keep our local community safe, donating the first 1000 of these face visors created to Rotherham Hospital was the least we could do.”
The face visors are made from a sturdy clear PVC plastic and come equipped with an adjustable headband and optional foam strip for comfort. Available in just two working days, the printing firm is prioritising orders for NHS and care providers.
The visors are available for purchase on their website here.
