Why is InLine Motion making face shields?
We realized that there was a lack of quality face shields being produced at quantity. Most companies are producing single-use shields without interchangeable parts. We wanted to create a cost-effective reusable shield that allows the organizations to purchase fewer overall units while still providing their individuals with protection.
What about OHSA approval?
The shields are designed exclusively to only be used against liquids or projected spatter. They are not designed for impact resistance, and should NOT be used as protection against flying debris, sparks, or open flames.
What about NIOSH approval?
NIOSH applies to particle filtering PPE such as N95 masks and respirators. It is recommended to use a NIOSH approved mask in conjunction with our face shields.
How were these face shields designed?
We rapidly prototyped and reached a production model quickly. We started with a 3D printed single-piece halo; 22+ revision changes later we moved to an open halo with a strap to allow for better comfort and a more universal fit.
What are the materials used to construct the face shield?
Halos: FDA Approved HDPE
Visor: FDA Approved PETG or Polycarbonate
Forehead cushion: EPDM Closed Cell Foam
Strap: FDA Silicone
What is unique about your face shields?
Our face shields are a durable design with interchangeable parts. They can be assembled in under a minute and require no tools or special training. They ship flat in standard size cases so they can be delivered to almost any organization that receives packages. If any component becomes damaged or contaminated, another piece can be assembled into the unit.

Not FDA approved devices. There is currently no universal standard for face/eye protection from biological hazards. Face shields are considered Class I medical devices that are exempt from Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Pre-Market Notification, but are subject to the FDA’s Quality System Regulation that includes periodic inspection. Face shields do not protect fully from impact hazards, so that OSHA requires their use in conjunction with additional eye protection (goggles, prescription spectacles with side shields, etc.).
