Origami Face Shields
Face Shields help protect the face and eyes from harmful splashes, sprays, or airborne particulates while still maintaining functional optical clarity for visibility. Medical Face Shields are an essential piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) that help prevent the spread of pathogens.
Many Face Shields incorporates adhesive foam cushions on the forehead that hold the transparent moisture barrier away from the user’s face. This enables the continued use of additional protective equipment such as safety goggles and particulate masks for multiple layers and levels of personal protection. Users secure the Face Shield with an adjustable headband, either an elastic strap or a notched band that can be sized to fit most comfortably. Some Face Shield configurations can be attached to a disposable face mask that covers the mouth and nose, covering the eyes from the nose upwards with the optically clear shield.
Boyd also designs and manufactures face shields with multiple optically clear layers designed to quickly peel off during surgery or medical procedures negating the need to change or clean the face shield if contaminated or the field of vision is impaired. This highly efficient functionality assures optimal visibility and clarity when it matters most, removing unnecessary process distraction and non-value-add activity from the surgical room.

HexArmor Case Study
Origami Face Shields are a more recent development that enables the use of a single non-porous, optically clear material that requires a single supply source and limited assembly. Our Disposable Face Shields are composed of two pieces: the integrated shield and crown piece, and the adjustable headband. Boyd’s Origami Face Shields can be configured with or without crown vents and includes a printed label for branding opportunities. In instances of limited supply this label acts as an area for healthcare workers to write their name on the shield, making these shields traceable to an owner and reusable. Boyd leverages our precision converting expertise to incorporate fabrication that enable the end user to easily fold, bend into shape, and assemble. This creates efficiencies in packaging and reduces the amount of shipping and storage volume. Approximately 30,000 Origami Disposable Face Shields can be stored in one cubic meter. Since we use durable, non-porous, chemically resistant materials PET, Boyd’s Origami Face Shields are cost effective for disposable single-use applications while resilient enough to withstand rugged use. By leveraging this new design, Boyd is helping reduce Face Shield costs, waste, lead times, logistics and inventory complexities for this critically-needed medical equipment.
Boyd’s material expertise, precision converting processes and integration capabilities make us an essential partner in helping you procure necessary safety equipment that is efficient to obtain, distribute, and use and also effective to protect against pathogens and contaminants. We help you select the best fit materials and fabricate Face Shields that protect the user while meeting your project requirements.
