Source for Metal Screen Face Shield

You can order the metal screen for a hard hat or to insert into a normal face shield. Grainger carries them (the have a local store, although you may need to order one).  Make sure you get the right frame for the hole on the shield!  Try to get one with a metal rim and that is designed for heat applications – not forestry.

 

This is the direct link to the face shield I recommend:

http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/ELVEX-Faceshield-Screen-Visor-3NMU9?cm_sp=IO-_-IDP-_-BTM_BTB05209020&cm_vc=IDPBBZ2

It is model number:  3NMU9

Faceshield Visor, Steel Mesh, Blk, 8x15-1/2

They can either be placed into a face shield assembly or you will need to order a folding frame for a hardhat (see images below).  Make certain you have the right frame for the holes on your screen!!!  We do have hardhats in the department, so if money is an issue you only need to purchase the screen and the frame.

About skaad

Professor Laura West, head of Sculpture at Fresno City College, has been casting iron since her undergraduate studies at Southern Illinois University in the late 1980's/early 1990's. This is where her first iron furnace was built. Professor West continued her studies at Idaho State University and then became part of the teaching staff at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture before moving to Fresno, California. Although Professor West has run and built furnaces of a wide variety of sizes, types and situations, she specializes in smaller furnaces and beginner crews. Laura is known internationally for her iron casting skills. Her small tap out iron cupola which melts 100 lbs/7minutes and has been used in classrooms and workshops from coast to coast. This furnace alone has seen over 30,000 pounds of iron flow through it. Professor West was even a member of a small crew of people who poured iron north of the arctic circle in Alaska. Laura's work has been exhibited internationally and focuses on the placement of cast figurative elements within installation and environmental formats. In the past several years, her work has expanded to include the use of digital technology and rapid prototyping. This research focuses on the use of digitally produced molds and patterns for use with cast metal.
