From stay-at-home orders forcing businesses to close for months, to businesses reopening and struggling to find Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), COVID-19 impacted the world in devastating ways and created new issues people across all industries had to face head-on. HAIMER listened and responded by providing an innovative solution to help customers return to work safely.
HAIMER has launched its Face Shield that both minimizes the spread of illness and is extremely comfortable to wear. The adjustable visor is made of high quality plastic to allow for repeatable use – with easily replaceable visors and head cushions, the product is sustainable and environmentally friendly. It also helps meet regulations pertaining to eye protection against droplets and splashes (PSA Regulation (EU) 2016/425 category II, EN 166:2001, ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2020, CSA Z94.3:20)
Like all HAIMER products, it’s made in Germany using injection molding on German machines. When the first shipment of the HAIMER Face Shields arrived at Haimer USA, the team decided to donate masks to the Old Saybrook Dentist office located in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. Upon receiving the donation, Dr. Paul Bied, DDS, and his staff tried them out at the practice. “It is definitely made to the highest German quality,” Bied explains. “It is very comfortable to wear.”
The HAIMER Face Shield is ideally suitable for production companies (industry and handcraft) and offices as the visual field is not limited. This product is available through HAIMER’s distribution partners, sales team and Amazon.
