New Type IIR with Visor

New Product Line: Type IIR Face Mask with Integrated Visor

In a recent survey, 73% of healthcare workers expressed concerns over wearer comfort – while a massive 90% were worried about the growing environmental impact of disposable PPE*.

Prioritising these issues has led our product development team to create two brand-new, high-quality ranges that address keyworker concerns.

Focused on sustainability

Our new Type IIR face mask with an integrated visor provides ultimate wearer comfort. The new product line is manufactured from three-layered protective fabric with an integrated, optically clear visor with an anti-fog coating. The product has been well received by customers with positive early feedback.

The visor, which is ultrasonically welded to the mask, provides a comfortable fit, and is available with a choice of extra soft ear loops or ties that fit comfortably around surgical caps. Additionally, the compact product packaging reduces packaging waste, freight costs and storage space, whilst a significant proportion of the profits will be reinvested into our R&D programme for the continued development of sustainable bio-sourced material technology. 

Meanwhile, Optec™, which is due to be launched next month, addresses the need for safe, comfortable protection that’s kinder to the environment and offers a low cost per wear.

Optec 100 series reusable face shield system

The ergonomically designed, reusable face shield system is manufactured from biomaterial, engineered to reduce the build-up of bacteria and suitable for use with standard thermal washer-disinfectors or wiping clean.

Listening to wearer feedback

Since spring 2020, our team have been on a mission to make British-engineered face and eye protection the number one choice for the NHS – and wearer feedback plays a huge part.

Kevin Porter, Technical Director: “Our ongoing product development is aligned with market and customer feedback, and every stage of the design process reflects user needs.”

Ongoing product development processes focus on our 4 Pillars of Comfort:

  • all-day wearer comfort
  • performance to the highest standards of safety
  • sustainable design choices
  • cost-effective options for healthcare services

Due to our high standards of quality, excellent technical support, and fast delivery, our products remain in great demand from distributors in Europe and beyond.

About Tecman

Tecman Advanced Healthcare Products is a leading UK manufacturer of face and eye protection. Founded in 2020 to address the critical shortage of PPE for NHS workers, the company is now exporting British made face and eye protection throughout Europe.  

An early investment of over £500,000 in state-of-the-art machinery led to rapid developments in wearer comfort and protection, and Tecman’s original face shield was one of the first to receive the sought-after category III complex design PPE level.

Tecman regularly consults focus groups of healthcare workers on their comfort and protection needs and incorporates this user feedback into its ongoing product development.
