Face Masks made in the UK

Our mission is to be the reliable provider of high quality face masks made in Britain.

The surge in demand for face masks has shown that the procurement of face masks that are up to the standards required by law, was a problem.

Even the government and the NHS struggled to get face masks in the quantities and the quality needed.

The supply chain struggled, deliveries were delayed and face masks offered from abroad have often shown to be substandard.

High Quality IIR Face Masks – Made in the UK

A group of established Nottingham business men and medical professionals set out to provide high quality face masks for our country.

Home Shield Products is registered with the MHRA Reference Number 10412 and at the start of October 2020 we have received the MHRA approval for: surgical/medical face mask single use.

About us

About Home Shield Products Ltd

From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic my company and its customer base were overnight closed for business. Although help and positive government intervention has enabled the business to weather this period.

I started on a venture of sourcing PPE as it was apparent the country’s needs far exceeded its stock holdings.

My business partner, Kevin Henson, and I managed to source hand sanitiser and through proven trade routes managed to source masks and supply a daily changing market. A friend and colleague, Rory Gallagher, who was also working with the UK production of hand sanitiser joined us and we, with the help of my lifelong friend and accountant, Tony Kent, all saw the need to join forces and so Home Shield Products Ltd was formed by the 4 of us.

The demand for PPE was becoming more and more obvious

At this time Rory had been in contact with Dr Abraze Khalique who had been similarly appalled by the lack of PPE protection in his industry and had joined forces with a group of ex-military friends and similar minded driven people who wanted to address this lack of PPE.

They formed a UK charity “UK Mask Force“ with the sole intention to raise money and purchase face masks for the NHS & nursing homes and donate them to the most needy areas.

Home Shield Products supplied face masks for the charity from the outset

This didn’t prove as easy as first thought in that most of the imported face masks were proving to be substandard and massively expensive due to the profiteering of many importers.

Home Shield and the UK Mask Force worked very closely in sourcing IIR MEDICAL masks and supplied the charity who in turn donated throughout the UK during the past few months. In doing so, many high-profile celebrities have come forward to help gain publicity for the charity.

It is about quantity and quality

From this time of crisis, the most infuriating thing was, how we as a nation were left in a situation of not being able to supply our front-line workers with much needed PPE.

It was at this point Home Shield Products Ltd approached the charity with the inspired idea of Doctor Abraze to manufacture a British made IIR quality mask which would enable us to allow our front-line workers access to the quality of goods that they deserve.

Face mask manufacturing in the UK

It has proved, so far, very difficult to find honourable people to supply the required machine and raw materials to achieve UK production, but with Dr Abraze’s and Rory’s dogged determination I am excited to say that the machine has arrived in the UK in August  and after successful testing and having the face masks certified to EN14683 Type IIR Medical Face Masks in the UK by SGS, the world leading company for testing and certifications, production has started in October 2020.
