Production of IIR Face Masks made in Nottingham has started

It was a challenging journey for Home Shield Products Ltd, from just the idea of providing UK made face masks to having an operating production line with a weekly capacity of 500,000 face masks.

The journey to become a certified IIR face mask production facility

Appalled by the shortage and the often substandard quality of imported face masks, in March 2020 Dr Abraze Khalique and  a few like- minded local business men developed the plan to produce high quality face masks in the UK, right here in Nottingham.

With this idea in mind Home Shield Products Ltd was founded to become a manufacturer of high quality, fully certified face masks in the UK.

Facilities and production lines to manufacture IIR face masks

The management of Home Shield Products Ltd has made substantial investment in the premises in Nottingham to transform them into a cleanroom environment with positive atmosphere pressure to ensure the highest standard for the production of surgical face masks.

Another considerable investment was made in the acquisition and installation of two production lines to manufacture type IIR face masks.

Experienced and highly qualified machine operators are employed to make sure operations run smoothly and all necessary requirements in the production of surgical face masks are not only met, but exceeded.

UK tested, certified and MHRA approved face masks

From the outset it was the aim of the company to be a reliable provider for the NHS, care homes and businesses in the UK for high quality and fully certified face masks made in the UK.

To give the maximum confidence to its customers, the dedicated management team of Home Shield Products Ltd, has decided to get the products tested not only by one but by two of the leading test facilities in the UK.

The Type IIR face masks have been tested and certified to EN 14683:2019 +AC:2019 by SGS Testing, the worlds leading testing company and 4wardTesting one of the UK’s most renowned material testing institutions.

In early October the Home Shield Products Ltd face masks received MHRA approval and production has started.

500,000 IIR face masks per week

With all the obstacles, of building a manufacturing line that not only meets all legal requirements for surgical Type IIR face masks, but also the high demands the team around Dr. Abraze has set themselves, production has started.

From mid-October both production lines are up and running with an output of 500,000 type IIR face masks per week.
