PROFAPLA (French acronym for flat-made face protection) is a face shield system designed to be easily made by several means :

  • 3D printing, be it FDM, SLS, MJF, ... ;

  • laser cutting ;

  • plotter & CNC cutting ;

  • and even manual cutting.

V1 here:

PROFAPLA is one of the lightest and fastest face shield to produce and assemble, at 13' printing time on a 0.4 mm nozzle, for 5 grams and max 30 seconds assembly.

The design of PROFAPLA has been created based on precise statistical data of head measurements (dimensions, outlines, shape). It is therefore comfortable to wear and will fit the greatest number of potential users, male or female.

  • one-piece design ;

  • no tools required ;

  • ultra-light (5 grams / 0.2 oz) ;

  • ultra-fast to make (13' with 0.4mm nozzle) ;

  • screen freely adjustable in height ;

  • does not limit head mobility;

  • glasses and respiratory masks compatible (and to be used in conjunction with) ;

  • huge storability (30 000 per cubic meter, screens and elastics included) ;

  • EU and US versions (A4, US Letter).

Only limitation regarding 3D printing: bed size 250 mm or more.
