As a result of covid-19, the need for protective equipment has increased. In England, a new type of visor with a significantly smaller amount of plastic has been used by the NHS, healthcare centers and the manufacturing industry. FrontPac is now launching this type of climate-smart protective visor in Sweden together with Oppboga.
An advantage of minimizing the amount of plastic in the protective shields is that the large demand for transparent plastic in combination with a limited supply means that the manufacturing cost is high. Instead, a larger amount of FSC-certified cardboard is used, which gives the user a product with high quality and safety while being climate-smart. The FSC-certification means that the material originates from a responsible forestry that takes into account both the environment and people. Oppboga is constantly working to find new ways to replace plastic with cardboard to contribute to a better environment.
The manufacturing takes place at FrontPac
The protective shield is manufactured in-house at FrontPac in Arlöv. The proximity to customers in combination with a large capacity means that FrontPac can produce a larger volume and deliver this quickly even in high demand. This in combination with the cost-effective material choices gives the user an affordable product. The visor is a disposable item that is discarded immediately after use. This increases safety as reusable visors must be handled correctly so as not to pose a danger to the user.
