Our products are made in Bellingham, Washington
The Humanity Shield was designed in Juneau Alaska, and is handmade in Bellingham, Washington by employees at Oyster Creek Canvas. Since March, we have been using our expertise in sewing technical fabrics to produce isolation gowns, masks and filters for first responders. We’re now turning our attention to the wider community and manufacturing shields to keep people safe as we return to our normal lives.
The Humanity Shield is made of clear PETG polycarbonate and medical grade filtration fabric. We use closed cell EVA foam which doesn't soak up water, allowing for easy cleaning. The Humanity Shield also uses a Velcro closure, which, unlike elastic, does not stretch out after repeated use.
All of the materials that are used in the manufacturing of the Humanity Shield are sourced within the United States with the intention of regenerating our economy and ensuring jobs for Americans around the country.
Our shields have an opaque protective film that must be peeled off of the outside of the shield prior to use. This film ensure that your shield does not get damaged during production. To remove the film, start at one of the corner edges at the top of the shield near the foam.
The safety of our workers, our customers and each community that the Humanity Shield reaches is of the utmost importance to us. Our shields are handmade in our sanitized facility in Bellingham, Washington. Everyone in our production facility is required to wear proper PPE, regularly sanitize workstations and follow all recommended health mandates from both our State and Federal governments. All shields are shipped out in sanitary packaging for your peace of mind.
Yes, the Humanity Shield is a unique design from Juneau, Alaska, USA.
Our Humanity Shield uses a clear polycarbonate full-face shield. It differs from other face shields as it has a filter fabric that extends down below the jawline and on the sides of the face, offering additional coverage for the wearer. The Humanity Shield also uses a Velcro strap closure system, which, unlike elastic, will not stretch out over multiple uses and does not slip once the shield is in place.
Yes! With proper care our products are designed to be reused indefinitely.
The shield can easily be washed with dish soap and water. We also recommend that you spray the fabric with an alcohol spray, such as liquid hand sanitizer.
We recommend using a tissue or microfiber cloth to buff gel hand sanitizer, baby shampoo or liquid dish soap on the inside of the shield. Many wearers wear the shield for 12+ hours per day without a need to reapply anti-fog agents on the inside of the shield.
Our Humanity Shield is very breathable and designed with wearer comfort in mind. They are lightweight, breathable and comfortable for multi-hour usage. The EVA foam headpiece keeps the shield far enough away from the face to avoid any pressure points or interference with glasses or oxygen.
Nope! As you can see in our video, wearers can easily don their glasses with the shield.
Our Humanity Shield offers a number of advantages. In addition to being reusable and easily cleanable, they are comfortable to wear, they help protect portals of viral entry and prevent wearers from touching their face. The Humanity Shield also allows wearers to maintain social distancing while allowing visibility of facial expressions and lip movements for speech perception.
There will never be any intervention that can guarantee 100% effectiveness against the coronavirus. However, as with all other PPE, the Humanity Shield can be used as a part of a wearer’s infection control effort, in addition to social distancing and hand washing. The Humanity Shield can be worn in conjunction with N95 masks and surgical masks when needed. The unique design of the Humanity Shield extends the coverage beyond typical face shield designs.
Our product fits most facial structures. The shield comes in sizes 8” up to 11” inches. Please refer to our product pictures for visuals on the different sizes.
The shields are shipped flat, to reduce shipping costs to you. The shield will take several wears to really take the shape of the wearer’s head. We recommend leaving it velcrod when not in use.
We use 3-day priority shipping, unless otherwise specified.
