We are all aware of the government’s continued endeavours to provide PPE across 58,000 separate organisations, including care homes, pharmacies, and GP surgeries. Many of you will have also read about the exceptional efforts of some Freemasons using 3D printers to produce PPE in the form of full-face visors.
Thanks to the ingenuity and benevolence of a member of the Mark Province of Kent, Mark Grand Lodge is supporting an initiative to provide Provinces, wishing to participate, with a reasonable supply of full-face visors for onward distribution to those in need locally.
The member’s manufacturing business has designed a plastic injection mould capable of producing up to 2,500 plastic visors per week. Visors are currently being made and will shortly be available for shipping to Provinces. Shipments will be flat-packed, consisting of plastic frames, PVC or PET shields and an easy assembly guide. See the picture below.
An order has already been placed by the Mark Province of West Yorkshire which should be with us shortly. We are currently investigating where they would be best used in the Province.
