“It’s the dedication of our people that sets us apart from the pack. We often reference our strength as WE are Curtis.”

Made from .015 polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the face shields are patent pending. The one-piece, lightweight face shields are easy to assemble.

Additionally, they have an anti-fog coating and come with an ANSI-Z87 certification.

The disposable face shields are currently awaiting approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

New England hospital network CEO said: “I must say the design is simple yet elegant. I love the way the fold keeps the shield off the face nicely without requiring a foam strip across the forehead.”

Headquartered in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, Curtis Packaging serves various markets including, Liquor, Cosmetics, and Chocolates industries.
