OVER 750,000 FACE SHIELDS DONATED

Medical professionals across Europe have been facing shortages of crucial protective supplies, including face shields. Our industry is stepping up, by designing and manufacturing folding carton face shields; and making the designs available for all to use. The face shield designs, that we are aware of, have come from two sources:

GPI face shield – you can download the details here. GPI are not seeking to benefit from their design hence there is no need to include any branding. A disclaimer for these face shields is included.

IPG / Fibershield.org – details are in the following website https://fibershield.org/. Pro Carton are now a recognised supporter of the programme.  The patent pending and proprietary paperboard-based face shield designs featured on this site may be used by packaging firms, royalty free through 2020, so long as users commit to donating a minimum of 100,000 face shield to health care providers in 2020. Over 750,000 shields have been donated already.
