Icon Now Making Face Shields

RV supplier Icon has begun to produce personal protective equipment (PPE) face shields to help front-line health-care workers limit their exposure to the coronavirus.

The Manitoba, Canada-based company had existing access to plastic materials as well as expertise in developing products. The polycarbonate full-face shield has rubber foam that sits comfortably on the forehead and helps prevent direct exposure to the face from airborne droplets. The size is easily adjusted with a secure hook and loop fastener.

“We saw an opportunity to help our local healthcare workers relatively quickly, and realized we could scale this to help other regions affected by COVID-19 as well,” Icon Marketing Manager Jordan Martindale said. “There’s positively problems with the previous supply chains right now so we, as manufacturers, had somewhat of an obligation to figure out any ways we could help.”

RV products are still readily available from Icon, which said it continues to support the RV dealers and owners that rely on the company.
