Regency Design, the award-winning design and manufacturing business, has launched a new PPE Category 1 Face Visor as part of a series of innovations to support key workers in current and future crises.
The highly-durable visors, which are CE marked to demonstrate conformity with health, safety and environmental protection standards for products sold within the EU, have already been delivered in their tens of thousands to various NHS Test Centres and Trusts throughout the UK as part of the company’s commitment to protecting essential staff.
The product comprises a clear, polycarbonate panel with a soft foam head-band worn with a Velcro adjustable strap. It has anti-fogging properties and features very high-quality optics with no distortion, enabling it to be used in all vital scenarios, from bus and coach drivers to medics. The visors are designed to be multi-use and can be easily cleaned. They also allow a logo to be incorporated into the headband design, as well as providing a space to write the owner’s name and/or other important information such as the date on which the visor was issued.
Zak Manhire, Chief Commercial Officer, says that the business has already started production:
“We have already delivered more than 50,000 visors and are now looking to significantly increase production to make up for the UK-wide shortfall in essential Personal Protective Equipment.
“Feedback to date on the comfort and performance of the visors has been excellent and we are now looking at using our proven design and manufacturing skills to innovate other products that will be needed for this crisis and beyond.”
Regency Design achieved national fame in 2018 for its role in the ‘There but not There’ commemorative campaign, producing the ghostly silhouettes for the Royal British Legion to represent The Fallen of the first world war. More recently it designed and produced the ‘footprints’ to commemorate the D-Day landings.
