Visors for Victory

In response to the limited availability of PPE, UTC South Durham staff are making visors using the school’s laser cutters and donating them to key organisations.

The visors comprise of a headband made from 0.7mm Polypropylene and a 240 micron OHP plastic sheet. The plastic sheet can be removed from the headband and cleaned, or disposed of and replaced with a new sheet.

The visors come with some additional sheets but we would recommend that you purchase more sheets as replacements. The sheets are available online, please search for 240 micron OHP plastic sheets. The additional sheets can be attached by hole-punching four holes along a short side of the A4-sized sheet.

N.B. The visor is not clinically tested and is not made to the same standard as PPE which can be purchased from medical suppliers.

We have received a number of enquiries and are trying to fill orders as soon as possible. We are prioritising healthcare workers.

We are currently not accepting requests from individuals as demand is high. If you work for or have a connection to an organisation who would benefit from the visors, please pass these details to a manager. This enables us to get a clearer picture of the suitability of the visors and the numbers required by each organisation.
