A Note About Safety
Manufacturing isn't easy during normal times and it REALLY isn't easy when you're restricted to having a limited size workforce and distancing requirements. Despite this we're still willing to take a small risk so we can help protect those taking a BIG ONE.
Part of what we do is crowd source our parts from individuals all over the world which creates a huge potential hazard when we receive it as you can imagine. Everything that comes in our door has to be treated like it may be infected. Therefore we have placed rigorous disinfection protocols in place in compliance with the High-Level CDC guidelines for proper disinfection. You can read about our complete washing process here.
In order to continue providing shields to our medical professionals, we need to ensure the safety and cleanliness of the team and facility. It only takes one incident to bring down the entire operation and jeopardize the safety of the people we are trying to protect. Please take these safety measures seriously.
