Universal sizing fits on the brim of most hard hats and accommodates a variety of face shields. Face shields protect your face from many different hazards in the work place. Constructed from lightweight polycarbonate and aluminum for strength and durability. We offer face shields from Pyramex and SaS Safety Corp. Protect your face from workplace hazards today.
Face shields are intended to protect the entire face, or portions thereof, from impact hazards such as flying fragments, objects, large chips, and particles. When worn alone, face shields do not protect employees from impact hazards. Use face shields in combination with safety spectacles or goggles for additional protection.
The face shield windows extend from the brow to below the chin and across the entire width of the face. Hard hat face shields are available in lift-front designs which may be raised up when needed or left in the lowered position. We offer face shields made from polycarbonate. A very strong, durable material designed to withstand impact flying objects such as large chips, fragments, particles, sand, and dirt. All of our face shields meet ANSI Z87.1 standards for impact resistance. Face shields are also available in varying degrees or levels of thickness. Theses levels should correspond with specific tasks.
Hard hat face shields are also used in medical situations when blood-borne pathogens put health care workers at risk. Law enforcement officers, military personnel, fumigators and search-and-rescue teams also use face shields as personal protective equipment.
OSHA requires employers to provide hard hat face shields to employees who are at risk of face or eye damage during their work duties. Face shields must be comfortable and able to be cleaned and disinfected easily. They must also be durable and well maintained. If a face shield requires tinting for a specific task, the employer should get a face shield with the darkest tint available and decrease the shading gradually until desired tinting is achieved with risk of vision impairment.
Protecting your workers’ faces from impacts, chemical hazards and sparks is just as important as protecting their bodies.

Polycarbonate Face Shields: What You Need to Know
Polycarbonate face shields are durable and reliable. They have high impact resistance levels, which means they can withstand projectiles while protecting the wearer. Generally, polycarbonate face shields are coated to make them extremely scratch-resistant so workers can maintain high levels of visibility for longer periods of time.
Cleaning contaminants from polycarbonate face shields is easy. Depending on the contaminant, a soft cloth and ordinary cleaning solutions can be used. Since polycarbonate face shields are extremely sturdy, they can be vigorously washed, if necessary.
Choosing the Right Polycarbonate Face Shield
Your workplace poses a unique set of hazards to your workers – and there isn’t a universal polycarbonate face shield that will work for everybody. In order to choose the right shields for your workers, you’ll need to carefully evaluate your workplace and determine which hazards your employees are facing.
You may need to choose a polycarbonate face shield that protects your workers from chemical hazards, impacts, dust or sparks. While most polycarbonate face shields can provide basic protection, they’re not all created equal; some are thicker, more scratch-resistant and larger than others. Naturally, cost is usually a guiding factor as well.
Aspherical Hard Hat Face Shields
Some workers prefer aspherical hard hat face shields for all-around protection. In most cases, aspherical polycarbonate face shields won’t interfere with other safety equipment, like headsets and earmuffs or magnifying safety glasses. However, you’ll need to evaluate your existing PPE and make sure adding more equipment won’t compromise your workers’ safety.
Aluminum-Bound Polycarbonate Face Shields
The aluminum-bound polycarbonate face shields you’ll find in EnviroSafetyProducts’ catalog follow a universal hole pattern that allows them to fit commonly used headgear and brackets. Designed to protect wearers from liquid splash, impacts and dry particulates, our aluminum-bound polycarbonate face shields meet or exceed ANSI Z87.1 standards to guarantee the maximum possible protection for your workers.
Brackets for Polycarbonate Face ShieldsWhen your employees’ protective headgear isn’t designed for use with a polycarbonate face shield, you’ll need a bracket. Brackets are generally adjustable and can accommodate several types of face shields. Constructed of durable aluminum, plastic or nylon, brackets generally only come in one size.
Hard Hat AdaptersInstead of brackets, many employers choose hard hat adapters. If you choose to use a hard hat adapter, remember that each adapter is usually designed to work with a specific polycarbonate face shield – most are not universal. However, hard hat adapters securely connect their designated face shields to most types of hard hats to provide a high level of head and facial protection.
