Face protection guards the wearer against flying particles, shards, chips, and toxic splashes. However, they need to be worn with headgear and protective goggles for maximum safety.
Face shields are available in varying thicknesses. Various transparent materials are used in their manufacture depending on the amount of protection required for differing tasks. The windows style of face protection guarantees safety from the brow to below the chin, and across the face, and is available in both lift-front and removable designs.
