We produce medical grade foam strips for medical visors and face shields. These visors and face shields are made from clear plastic with comfortable foam strips at the top of the face shield which sits against the forehead, with an elastic or Velcro fastening to keep the visor securely in place.
Southern Foam has produced 500,000 of these adhesive foam strips and has orders for over 1.5 million more units which we’re currently delivering at a rate of 250,000 every week. We are expanding capacity as we continue to receive new enquiries and orders. Most of the foam that we are supplying is going to NHS England and NHS Wales.
However, some of the smaller companies that are producing these visors are supplying care homes and other areas of social care. We are also supplying companies internationally.
The foam that we use is the only recommended grade for this specific application as foam on skin contact testing has been carried out and approved. There are a number of options that are being produced including foam strips with or without the self-adhesive backing. The shape of the foam also varies from rectangular to more of an intricate shape to allow for bending. Contact us now for more information, we’ll be happy to help.
