Supporting the Health Sector with Locally Manufactured Medical Face Shields

Off the back of our success in being named as one of two organisations to move forward with a prototype emergency ventilator for NSW Health, we’re pleased to share that the Burn Brite Ampcontrol team based in Melbourne have commenced production of 3000 face shields to help protect frontline health care workers in NSW.

Our Victorian operation, renowned for producing industrial lighting products for harsh and hazardous environments, has advanced manufacturing facilities for electronics, precision fabrication and plastic extrusion and was well placed to answer the call to arms issued across Australia to support frontline health workers tackling COVID-19 with critical PPE.

The single use face shields were prototyped to meet NSW Health requirements and 3000 face shields will now be shipped from our Melbourne manufacturing facility in the next two weeks.

Designed to help ease supply chain issues associated with internationally sourced products, these face shields are fast to assemble and feature a clear face shield with an adjustable fit to suit most head sizes and shapes. They also include a pressure headband to provide relief for wearers once the face shield has been tightened.
