Coppins Protector Face Shields are a form of personal protective equipment which helps protect the facial area and associated mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth) from splashes, sprays, and spatter of body fluids. The device provides barrier protection from expelled aerosols to both the wearer and those around them, offering improved food and worker safety whilst not compromising on comfort or productivity.
