A food packaging manufacturer is re-shaping its production line to make PPE equipment which it is selling to estate and letting agents, amongst others.
Rapid Action Packaging says it can produce a total of seven to 10 million face shields a week.
The visor is laminated to a carton board frame which, the company claims, provides “a rigid head frame with adjustable strap.”
“In a world after lockdown, the shield will help people adjust confidently to a gradual return to normality” according to the company’s chief executive, Graham Williams.
He says his product - which is manufactured in the Republic of Ireland - conforms to the EU Regulation 2016:425 Category 1 technical PPE specifications.
The company normally provides packaging for sandwiches, hot products, chilled meats and ready meals at retailers including Tesco, Sainsburys, Waitrose, Morrisons, ASDA, M&S, Pret A Manger and LEON.
