CLM Reusable Face Shield FAQs
NO, they are not, but they ARE designed with input from and testing by physicians/healthcare professionals.
YES, they are designed to be cleaned and reused. Wipe off with a sanitizing wipe. The head straps are removable for separate washing, if desired.
The frame is made from HDPE (High Density PolyEthylene), a food grade, non-reactive, durable plastic. The visor is made from either clear 1/32″ thick Polycarbonate or 0.030″ thick PETG. Both are very durable and easily cleanable materials. The straps are elastic, and the foam pad is closed cell polyurethane. There are two small steel screws with nuts that hold it together.
Approximately 156 grams. That’s not as light as a typical disposable face shield, but very light compared to the more “heavy duty” commercial face shield, which is about twice as heavy.
YES the straps are adjustable to fit different head sizes.
Yes, it flips up and down for easier access. The tension on the pivots can be easily adjusted by tightening or loosening the screws with a Phillips screwdriver.
Yes, shipping is available, but since it is very difficult and time consuming (and expensive!) for us to ship, we require a minimum order of 15 face shields for shipping. Be aware that the cost of shipping will need to be paid by the recipient before we can ship the order. If at all possible, we strongly encourage you to pick up your order, located in West Linn, OR USA. We will communicate directly with you regarding shipping if you choose that option during ordering.

In response to this pandemic, on 3/18/2020, Eric Cha (a Maker living in the Portland Oregon area, aka CleverLittleMaker) began work on creating a Face Shield. He understood the urgent and intense need for this item as his wife and several other family members/friends are front-line healthcare professionals. Within a few days, from scratch, he designed, sourced materials and manufactured CLM Reusable Face Shields in his home workshop. His wife, teens, neighbors and friends have joined him in the effort to protect those on the front lines.
