GBFans.com is a diverse community with members of all backgrounds in nearly every country of the world. We have a large number of medical professionals, emergency workers and frontline staff that needs our help. There are members of our community that are Doctors, Nurses, EMTs and other essential personnel that are at a high risk of exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19). We must come together as a community to help provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to those in need, including our community members.

GBFans.com is in a unique position, as many of the tools and equipment that are involved in the manufacture of costumes and props are also essential for the production of PPE. While the GBFans.com Shop has been closed down during our state's mandated closure order, we have been hard at work to shift our production from producing costumes and props, to producing face shields for our at risk medical professionals.

Face Shields

Our face shields are made from PETG, a form of Polyethylene that is commonly used in food and beverage bottles as well as medical supplies. It is a high grade material that is processed in a clean environment. We have also managed to locate a PETG material that contains an "Anti-Fog" additive to ensure the face shield does not become cloudy from exhalation.

The dimensions are approximately 12 inches wide by 9 inches tall. It provides good coverage to prevent aerosol particles from reaching the nose and mouth. It is spaced away from the face using a foam pad, that also prevents aerosols from entering at the top. It is comfortable and allows for a face mask and / or glasses to be worn while wearing the face shield. The face shield can be adjusted for different sized faces through the use of an elastic strap.

Sanitizing Instructions: The face shields will come with a protective film to ensure they are kept sterile during the manufacturing process. These face shields can be re-used and cleaned with a 10% concentration of bleach, 70% isopropyl alcohol or similar medical grade cleaner.
