This NHS-tested face shield/visor was made by AUB staff (a team of tutors, technicians, campus services staff and technical demonstrators) during the Covid-19 pandemic as personal protective equipment (PPE) for NHS and other medical professionals. Manufactured under strict social distancing and hygiene practices when the campus had been closed for the UK government coronavirus lockdown and teaching had moved online. The AUB funded PPE was supplied to local healthcare providers at a time when commercial availability of supplies had become severely limited, in part due to unprecedented increased demand but also because of restrictions on both manufacturing and importing through global efforts to control the spread of the virus. Once lockdown had been lifted and AUB staff were allowed back onto the campus, a face shield was provided for every member of staff. Developed via publicly available 'open-source' design plans, the visor consists of four 3D printed parts in nylon-12 (polyamide) that slot together to make up the frame, a clear sheet of PETG (polyester terephthalate glycol) to cover the face and an elastic strap which sits around the back of the head to secure the visor in place.
