Face Shields & Face Visors from Solopress
Face Shields are an effective way to protect against airborne droplets and splashes of liquid.
We offer three different types of full Face Visors.
Our Economy Full Face Shields are our most cost-effective solutions, particularly if you’re looking to bulk buy for your team. They feature an adjustable plastic headband and are delivered in two parts, which is quick to assemble before use.
The Professional Clear Face Shield Visors we sell come pre-assembled and are designed for your comfort, with a sponge headband. This is ideal when they’re being used by people during long shifts.
Finally, our CE Marked Face Shields are available exclusively to the healthcare market and have been approved by the British Standards Institution (BSI). These safety Face Shields include a CE sticker across the top and can be used by healthcare workers as PPE to contain the COVID-19 virus and avoid its further spread
Our entire Face Shields range is made from anti-fog PET plastic, which protects against liquids and ensures you can clearly see through it. You can also combine our full-face visors with our other coronavirus essentials, with room to wear a Face Mask under the shield.
You can place a single order or bulk buy up to 1,000 Face Shields with us, to ensure everyone stays safe. All our face shield visors also come with free next day UK delivery.
We can confidently say that our CE marked face shields have been manufactured to be effective in helping to protect the user against the COVID-19 virus.
This is because we submitted our in-house manufactured face shields to the BSI for testing. They confirmed that they:
- Conform to the PPE Regulation and EU recommendation 2020/403 scheme
- Are BS EN 166:2002 compliant
As a result, they are officially certified as PPE for use specifically against COVID-19, but are only to be purchased in order to be used by healthcare professionals.
Our face visors are made from polyethylene terephthalate, better known as PET plastic. This provides a solid barrier that helps to stop liquids and airborne particles from travelling, protecting the user and others in proximity from coughs and sneezes.
All our face shields come with an adjustable headband, which means that they should fit most head sizes. Our economy face shields are supplied as a two-part kit, which requires the headband to be attached to the shield itself.
Our professional and CE-marked versions are delivered pre-assembled along with the headband. This headband is pre-cut with six tabs, to allow the user to adjust it to suit them.
They also feature a piece of foam that will sit on your forehead for added comfort. This is particularly useful when the face shield is being worn for a long period of time.
Face shields can be worn instead of face masks, with some feeling that they are more effective. Benefits include better communication and providing a physical barrier to stop people touching your face.

Our CE-marked face shields are intended for single use and disposed at the end of a shift, and therefore are not reusable. For our economy and professional ranges, the decision whether to clean and reuse these visors is up to the person wearing them.
