In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, our Design & Manufacturing teams have worked hard to quickly develop a Face Shield that is effective, comfortable, reusable and can be manufactured in high volumes immediately. These face shields have been developed with and are currently in use with *Worcestershire NHS Trust, West Midlands Ambulance Service, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and The Gibraltar Health Authority.

Numatic is a leading brand in the design and manufacturing of commercial cleaning products, exporting to over 80 countries.

Safety & Regulatory Notes
This product has been produced in a non-sterile environment, clean before use following your existing SOP (Standard Operating Practices). These items of PPE that Numatic International Limited has developed for the NHS and other front-line health providers, have completed some internal assessment and testing to the regulations and standards but are not CE marked.
As per the Government’s announcement on 28th March 2020, to help get products into the NHS supply chain as quickly as possible, certain regulations for these types of PPE were relaxed. This statement confirmed that certain PPE products, required during this epidemic need not bear a CE mark or be fully tested. They should still, however, meet essential safety requirements. This PPE fulfils this requirement.
The face visor, understandably in the current environment and speed of production, has not been certified to BS EN 166:2002 or any equivalent standard. We do, however, believe it would conform.
