ETC offers face shields for medical workers

Best known as a leader in lighting fixtures and control systems, ETC is currently also supplying face shields to protect medical workers in the COVID-19 pandemic.

“ETC has always sought out ways to support our community in times of crisis, and now is no different,” says Steven Ricks, Product Development Manager of Rigging at ETC. “That sense of helping our community has helped us stay positive during this difficult time.”

ETC’s Face Shields provide front and side face protection from flying respiratory droplets that can transmit infectious diseases such as COVID-19.

Face Shields are available in lots of eight and sold at cost. An order form is available on the company website.   

Based on a design by Delve, ETC Face Shields are made from plastic, polyurethane foam padding, and an elastic band. The elastic band contains latex. We are pursuing a non-latex alternative and will make this version available as soon as possible. While these shields meet guidelines and best practices for PPE, they are not FDA-approved and are delivered unsterilized.
