In response, we're releasing the design for a surgical face shield that is made entirely from clear plastic sheet material, that anyone can make quickly and in large quantities using a CNC router, laser cutter, or die-cutting/stamping process.
The only material necessary is 0.020" Clear Plastic Sheet.
The all-plastic face shield is made from two interlocking plastic parts cut from 0.020" thick clear plastic sheet material.
Once cut out, the face shields can be flat packed, boxed up and shipped out immediately. Hospital staff can then easily assemble on site as needed.
We believe this design provides the fastest and easiest way to create face shields, and helps to address at least one part of the current nationwide PPE shortage.
This design, created by InStore Design Display, as well as the alternates below, were developed in collaboration between hospital staff at the University of Kansas Health System, The Center for Design Research at the University of Kansas, InStore Design Display and Dimensional Innovations in Kansas City.

While narrowing down to what we think is the best design, we found a few alternative headbands that work great, but require additional materials to construct.
Any of these headband designs can be used with the face shield cut file linked above.
