The safety of our communities, and those who help build them, are a top priority for us at Mpact. We have launched a face shield, especially designed to attach to a hard hat, in support of the construction and related industries.
Our hard hat face shield, produced from PET, a recyclable material, is designed for comfort and practical use within the construction and related industries.
It weighs a mere 34g, offers full facial cover, and is comfortable. The hard hat face shield is suitable to use with safety goggles and over masks. Although easy to clean and re-use, it may be used as a disposable unit.
Other shields in our range include the adult and kids face shields that are respectively designed as a ‘one size fits all’ but can be further tightened by using an elastic band between the two loops at the back of the headband.
We will soon be launching a face mask too.
Our timeous innovation is another way in which we are trying to do our part in fighting this pandemic, help reduce the spread of the disease and keeping our communities safe.
