April 2020: Press release: Demmel develops and donates face shields to local hospitals.

Demmel AG in Scheidegg develops and donates special face shields to local hospitals in the corona crisis. "The donation is a matter of our social responsibility as a company", explains Thomas Holderried, CEO of Demmel AG.  “In these challenging months, it is important to support each other quickly and unconventionally. It is a need for us to support and contribute our neighborhood with our know-how to protecting and saving lives."

In the current corona crisis, it is also difficult for hospitals to get appropriate protective equipment. The special face shields are a result of the typical Demmel innovation and were developed within a few days. In contrast to pure respiratory masks, this shield consists of a forehead holder and a visor made of transparent polycarbonate, which also protects the eyes but does not restrict the field of vision. Breathing mask and goggles can easily be used under the visor. The visors are easy to clean and can be reused if necessary. So they provide additional protection for clinic staff who work directly on the COVID-19 patient and are therefore faced with a very high pathogen load.

The entire staff of Demmel AG admires and praises the tireless efforts of the nursing staff and doctors: "With our donation we would like to thank all people who are currently performing above average in the treatment and care of Covid-19 patients.
We have great respect for the work that is done here every day for the general public and our region. ”

The Demmel face masks can also be used in almost all other areas of life. Further information and direct ordering options can be found here: -> Demmel Face-Masks
