With companies around the world stepping up to alleviate the global PPE shortage, face shields have taken many forms. However, a key limitation has remained. Face shields are still uncomfortable, especially for long periods of time. For first responders wearing face shields as part of their new daily routine, the typical design no longer feels suitable.
David Saul, a thoughtful citizen with a background in the optical industry, approached BOLTGROUP with a napkin sketch and an idea: What if a face shield could use a regular hat as the method for wear? His input and vision for a gasket-based solution provided the foundation for our team to imagine and develop a novel solution in record time.
