The design and fabrication of face shields for use by frontline hospital staff, including a partially 3D printed design from McLaren and a fully laser cut, clip-together design from our own Core Labs workshops has been executed.

Two face shield prototypes have been completed and have been sent to the National Guard Hospital for testing. KAUST will then share the design with industrial clusters so that they can be mass produced. We have already supplied team members at KAUST Health with the protective shields that you can see in the accompanying photo.
