In the past 48 hours, Fleece Performance Engineering, a leading manufacturer of aftermarket automotive performance products, has redeployed its engineers and a portion of its flexible manufacturing space to develop, test, document, and begin producing for sale a Disposable Full Face Shield for medical professionals who are running short on this form of personal protection equipment nationwide.
The patent pending Disposable Full Face Shield protects the wearer from splashing or spraying, and is produced on-site from optically clear lightweight polyethylene. The face shield can be worn over glasses and N95 surgical masks. Setting this mask apart is its ability to ship flat, requiring less than 2% of the shipping and storage space required by currently marketed face shields – exponentially reducing shipping and storage costs. The face shield has already undergone evaluation at a local hospital where an order for 600 pieces has since been delivered.
“As Americans in this critical time we must do what we can to adapt, innovate, and overcome the current pandemic”, said Brayden Fleece, President of Fleece Performance Engineering.
“With the team and resources at our fingertips, this project was something we had the expertise to act quickly on and provide the immediate support needed by medical professionals nationwide”. Fleece is currently able to produce 500 shields per single shift and has lined up the supply chain and tooling partners to begin producing over 100,000 units per day.
