Atlanta Face Shields Website
Who are we?
We are a group of Makers in and around the Atlanta area dedicated to produce protective face shields efficiently, effectively, and rapidly to provide local medical professionals with the protection they need during this pandemic. Our goal is to prevent a ‘fast pandemic’ of the Covid-19 Virus, specifically in the Atlanta area. We have been working to make and ship the parts for these masks for use in Atlanta hospitals. We will assemble and deploy these masks in Atlanta hospitals and later across the country, once local needs have been met.
Recently we have teamed up with Atlanta Beats Covid (ABC) to share resources and specialties.
We are using the Prusa 3D printable face shield design , which has been approved by the Czech Ministry of Health as a protective device against Covid-19. This requires three main components, the plastic face shield itself, the 3D printed frame, and the elastic band that fixes the shield to the user's head. Our team has generously provided several hundred dollars in supplies. Since these generous individuals are also forfeiting their free time, machine time, and expertise, our goal is to at the very least reimburse their money. At this point, we are on track to produce 500 reusable masks for local hospitals and have collectively already spent several hundred dollars. Additionally, our goal is to produce another round of 500 reusable masks.
How Can You Help?
We need all the help we can get. We need you to use the resources you already have at home to help us produce and distribute as many protective face shields as possible to the health providers who need it most. Whether it is by laser cutting the face shields or by 3D printing the frames for them, or even something we don’t have listed here, please let us know what you think you can help with!
