Story

Our NHS, Healthcare and Frontline workers need accessible PPE and face protection to protect themselves whilst they protect us. To help we are manufacturing and donating much needed PPE in the form of face shields to where they are needed most.

As an event production company, who have been hit hard by the pandemic, we have been able to adapt our facilities and skillset to design and produce a PPE face shield that is safe, clean, efficient, lightweight and reusable. Our solution was inspired by refining the hugely successful approach created by the 3D printing community, and we can now produce approximately 700+ of these kits per day, each kit contains five replaceable visors, giving 3500 uses to frontline staff.

We have produced 2000 kits to date which are already on their way to the front line. We would love to reach our target of 30,000 kits. A £2 donation today will provide one PPE Face Shield kit, with five visors providing at least five uses to protect any worker on the frontline.

If you are an NHS, Healthcare or Front Line worker and are in need of our PPE, please fill out the enquiry form HERE and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

This design has a simple flatpack construction, with easy to follow Instructions and has a reusable headband. Each pack contains five replaceable visors, additional visors can be sourced and made from home using widely available stationary supplies.The simplicity of the design and the materials needed allows anyone with CNC or laser facilities to produce this PPE kit.

If you are a supplier or manufacturer and want to help in other ways then please visit the Website and fill out an enquiry form.

    Over the past several weeks we’ve had some unbelievable and emotional responses from workers using our visors. We didn't quite reach our target of 30,000 kits, but thankfully as we reach the end of week 11 of lockdown, the demand for face shields has eased significantly. We finish on a high, knowing that we all really helped in our own small way. We made 9,600 kits in total, which have either been delivered or are on their way to the front line. Thank you to everyone for your amazing support. Stay safe and much love from the Firecracker Team

    We are pleased to announce that our visors have been approved for use by the UK Doctors Association and critical care department at Lewisham Hospital. Yesterday we delivered 1000 visors to Martine, the matron at the hospital who was extremely grateful! So far your money has helped make nearly 3000 kits. With our donations that is 9600 kits & 48,000 uses. We really want to continue helping but we are sadly running out of materials and funds to do so. We have increased our target to £10k and need your help to reach this. Please share our story.

    Thank you so much to each and every one of you who has donated so far, you really are making a difference. This week we have shipped 1750 face shields to the front line. To hospitals, care homes and medical institutes in and around London. We continue to make more and have produced another 3000+ this week ready for delivery. It's great to see these being used on the front line, as you can see from a picture sent to us from Bart Hospital. Please continue to support us by liking and sharing and please contact us if you need Face Shields.
