Just in time for back to school, SAFILO debuts its Polaroid STAY SAFE 2 KID face shield. The shield is designed for children ages 6 to 12 and is a new addition to Polaroid’s recently launched STAY SAFE collection of personal protective equipment (PPE) solutions to offer protection and safety in health care and professional settings, as well as to meet the daily need for protection. STAY SAFE 2 is a visor mask that protects the eyes, nose and mouth from external factors and is PPE certified. The visor is made from polycarbonate, and the attached rubber band is adjustable.

STAY SAFE 2 KID offers the same protective benefits as the adult version but is scaled down in size to fit smaller heads and features a red head strap with the Polaroid logo instead of the black strap featured in the adult size.

All STAY SAFE products are produced at Safilo Group’s Italian manufacturing facilities in Santa Maria di Sala (VE) and Brembate di Sopra (Bergamo), which were converted to make PPE. The new devices comply with the UNI EN 166 standards, with 10,000 glasses and shields already donated to hospitals in the hardest hit areas to support health care workers at the forefront of the pandemic. These are the first of a complete range of Polaroid Eyewear personal protection products dedicated to professionals, as well also those seeking to protect themselves under the distinctive sign of the Polaroid rainbow.
