18,628 SHIELDS PRODUCED. ALL proceeds donated to those who cannot afford a shield
Our 501c3 partner, Field Ready, is generously providing discounted and donated covid-19 face shields. If you or your organization is unable to afford shields ($2.65 per shield) please click here and Field Ready will respond to your request:
We have delivered over 18,000 shields to 28 States in the US and Canada. We have switched over to mass producing the face shield, which allows us to produce thousands per day at a low cost. We are especially interested in doing this to assist under-served communities and those with few resources as the virus spreads.
The covid-19 face shields can be made of 0.020" or 0.030" thick PETG (Polyethylene terephthalate glycol) or PET. PETG and PET are food safe, economical plastics used to hold items such as beverages. They are FDA-compliant, optically clear, impact resistant materials that can be cut on a CNC, waterjet, or laser cutter. It can also be die cut/punched easily or cut with scissors. It is a chemical resistant material that can be cleaned using soap and water, alcohol, or sani-cloth/wipes. Do a test on a small area not on the front of the shield to see what works best for you.
As a collaboration of shops primarily in the Los Angeles area, we have an excellent capacity to produce the covid-19 face shields in volume to assist with the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact us if you have any comments, questions or would like to try out a face shield at your facility.

We have developed a flat pattern covid-19 face shield that can be compactly shipped and made in communities around the world by CNC, laser cutter, water jet, die cut, or by hand with scissors. The face shield has been reviewed and approved by hospital facilities and medical providers in 26 US States and Canada. We have received 100 percent positive reviews from Nurses, ED doctors, Anesthesiologists, Respirator Therapists, OB/GYNs, EMTs, Radiologists, and Drive Thru Testing Sites. We have also delivered to skilled nursing facilities that serve the elderly. We are happy to hear our shield is considered very comfortable by medical providers and that it's reported to provide excellent coverage.
The shield is currently in use at Kaiser, UCLA, USC, Metropolitan Hopsital of New York, Mission Community Hospital, and San Francisco General Hospital among others. The shield is fabricated from 100 percent plastic PET or PETG, which allows it to be easily cleaned prior to use. It provides substantial coverage by extending below the chin, curving around the face, as well as covering overhead. We have moved into a larger phase of production which enables us to produce thousands of shields per day at a low cost.
Thank you to Lucien Junkin for his initial design explorations and inspiration, and to David Elliott of Local 44 for fronting the funds for the first batch of materials. We likely would not have produced any shields without the support and encouragement of these two individuals.
