Foster + Partners’ machine-cut visor obtains CE Certification

The all-purpose face visor designed by Foster + Partners for medical professionals has now received full CE Certification for 2020.

Since beginning production of our original design in late March, as London faced the brunt of the first wave of Covid-19 cases – we have made and donated over 40,000 visors. These were well received by various frontline teams, which in turn has prompted us to proceed with a full CE certification. The prototype visors were used across the city in many hospitals including, Chelsea and Westminster, The Royal Free, Great Ormond Street, St George’s, Croydon, Kingston, Nightingale, St Stephens and by our local Wandsworth GP network and other carers.

The overwhelmingly positive comments and direct feedback that we have received has helped us to develop the design further and to try and do more for our communities. We remain deeply indebted to the healthcare professionals who are caring for all of us and we feel extremely privileged to be have been able to help in any way.
