Do you have the facilities and resources to mass manufacture masks? Please get in touch with our team at OpenFacePPEproject@gmail.com
If you're fabricating face shields, please download the latest files to get started. The DXF should provide you with the outlines that can be used in almost any flat material fabrication process (laser cutters, rule dies, drag knife, CNC punch, etc.).
Refer to the BOM (bill of materials) for the materials you'll need.
For manufacturing, our team can help source materials and provide guidance on best practices. Please get in touch.
If you're assembling the shields, please download the instructions below and watch the video to learn how to properly prepare the shields for delivery.
|Clear Plastic Face Shield||0.007" to .01" thick non-brittle clear material. PET or polycarbonate is good.||12.5" x 10.25"||Qty 2 can be cut from 12x24, as the part is tapered||McMaster Carr (link)|
|Forehead Strap||Same material as the Face Shield||1" x 10.75"||Cut alongside forehead strap||McMaster Carr (link)|
|Elastic||3/8" or 1/2" wide elastic band||16"||(searching for pre-cut supply)||JO-ANN STORES, LLC|
|Foam||1"x1/2" strip||10"||Cut to length.||McMaster Carr|
|Warning - adding foam makes the shield much more difficult to clean.|
We’re making ours from 0.01” PET sheet, but almost any clear flexible material should work (such as polycarbonate, PETA, PETG, vinyl, etc).
