Open source Face Protection Screens for healthcare workers
A group of colleagues have designed a new type of face protection screens that can be produced with standard office supplies. The design is open source and available to all. Ramboll is producing 20,000 face protection screens, and donated the first batch to health workers in Denmark this week.

Producing Face Protection Screens with office supplies
A couple of weeks ago, a group of colleagues from Ramboll were looking for a way to put their skillsets to use and provide help to society during the Corona-crisis.
Along with other colleagues, Søren Peter Kristensen, Chief Specialist in Ramboll’s Buildings division, and Tobias Lundfos Thuesen, Team Lead in the print shop in Ramboll’s headquarters, came up with an innovative idea:
They developed a design for Face Protection Screens for healthcare workers that can be made with standard office supplies.
This design has now been approved by the Danish Safety Technology Authority.
A key point in the initiative has been to develop a design that is inexpensive and easy to produce, and one that can be shared freely, to ensure that as many people as possible can benefit from the idea.
Therefore, we share the product sheet and an assembly guide free of cost below.
Donating protective screens to health workers
In many countries around the world, there is still a critical need for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for health workers, working e.g. in the nursing sector.
To help address this need, Ramboll will also be producing protective screens to be donated to health workers. Right now, we have supplies for 20,000 screens and we will donate the first batch this week, to health workers in Copenhagen.
