Barking & Dagenham College has produced visors for donation to local care homes, doctors surgeries and other similar facilities.
The College has a range of technical equipment used for courses such as its 3D design course, which aren’t in use at the moment, as the College is operating virtually.
Staff decided to make use of the 3D printer etc. to produce face shields/visors for local organisations who are struggling to get PPE for their staff.
Curriculum Manager for Creative Industries Paul Schofield and Curriculum Team Leader for Creative Arts Cenk Cevizli (pictured, wearing one of the visors) spent some time perfecting the design and hope it will be useful for local organisations who are in need.
Paul explains: “We have the parts and they are pre-cut ready for assembly. We are ready to ‘mass produce’ them later this week and would welcome any local organisations that would benefit to please contact us at Paul.Schofield@bdc.ac.uk.”
