Multi-use face shields developed by a Latvian startup

Jun 19, 2020
In response to global supply shortages of PPE (personal protective equipment), Latvian startup Shield48 has developed a decentralized supply chain that can manufacture over 20,000 multi-use face shields per day, and ship anywhere in Europe within 48 hours.


There is a better way to protect medical personnel and manufacture smart. Shield48 is reusable up to 300 times and can reduce the waste by millions of tons of plastic.

Shield48 is a startup based in Latvia that grew out of the hackathon #HackForce designed to meet the challenges created by the COVID-19 virus.
