Hi everyone,

Darren here; I just wanted to touch base with you all to let you know whats been happening over the last couple of weeks.

If you are a customer requesting a quote from us, I'm terribly sorry for the delay but as you can see in our earlier posts, we have been preoccupied recently. A simple idea to make medical visors to protect our NHS due to the PPE shortage whilst on lockdown resulted in us having requests for over 40,000 visors from all over the country. From the stories we heard and the need to help our heroes urgently, we put our business to one side and went full steam ahead to help our NHS. Things have quietened down slightly and so we are working on your quotes and you should receive it shortly.

For those of you who requested visors from us, hopefully we have been able to assist you and if we haven't we are still working on it and trying our best. Over those 40,000 visor requests, we have managed to allocate over 30,000 to those that needed them through an amazing team of window film companies throughout the UK who have come to our rescue, heard our plight and started making them for our amazing Doctors and Nurses. This has been an amazing journey and we haven't finished, still working to assist as many if not all that contacted us.

So thank you for your patience, we are trying our best, exhausted from 18 hour days everyday to meet demand and help as many as we can.

Thank you, we will be in touch shortly.

Kind Regards

All at Smashgard.

Hi everyone, we have been busy 😊 myself and Melissa Botterill have arranged for these visors to go to various places over the next few days. 10 visors to 5 paramedic crews in nottingham, 30 visors to front line covid ward in leicester (they are sharing 1 visor between 4 of them at present) 😲 5 visors to a local care home, 20 visors to midwives, 10 for Chesterfield hospital being collected today the list goes on. We will carry on over the weekend making them ready for tuesday when we will be donating 120 visors amongst hospitals, a children's hospital, 2 doctors surgeries and nurses in northampton. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘Š #makethevisor

We now have dealers in various parts of the country so therefore if you havent heard from us, we apologise but we are trying to help as many of you as possible who kindly messaged us requesting visors.
If you need our help, some visors, just remember and use the name #makethevisor 😊

This all came as a bit of a shock to us, 2 weeks ago we were a normal window film company, now we have a website, a group of amazing window film companies helping us to help you, making as many visors as we can, we are trying our very best to help our amazing NHS heroes.

So thank you and remember, we haven't forgot about you, we will do our best

Please advise how I can get more information. My carers are on the front line, working with elderly and vulnerable who have symptoms but remain at home with my care staff going in to help them. My carer staff are worried sick about going in without full PPE and about the risks to them and their families - I need to keep them all safe. Please can you help me to do this?

NEW UPDATE 12th April 2020 ** YOU MUST READ **

WE HAVEN'T FORGOT YOU. To all of you that have liked, shared, commented or requested visors please know that we haven't and wouldn't forget about you. This has been incredible, the response we have had from initially asking if any Doctors or Nurses wanted a visor.....it now stands at requests for over 40,000 visors....wow.

We could have just supplied a few thousand of you with our visors and said to the rest of you, "sorry, we can't help" but that just isn't us, we want to help as many of you as we possibly can, we owe you that...our heroes.

Therefore a week after initially posting, although some of you haven't heard from us we have been extremely busy. We have contacted suppliers, manufacturers and dealers all over the world to help supply us film, put national social media posts out for dealers to join us and help you all. We've had radio interviews, articles in newspapers and today we will appear on ITV central news.

We now go under the brand #makethevisor with a new website www.makethevisor.co.uk which links to this page hence the blue header above and which is a collaboration of amazing window film companies throughout the UK joining together to provide FREE OF CHARGE visors to our amazing NHS Doctors and Nurses.

These companies have been amazing, helping us to help you in their own time, with their own costs, this industry has pulled together to put the GREAT back into GREAT BRITAIN and we are eternally grateful.
With their help we can assist as many of you as possible to get you the needed visors you need to keep you safe until your correct PPE equipment filters into your hospitals or establishments.

So if you have left a message or request for visors for you or your local hospital remember, we haven't forgot you and we will be in touch as soon as we can.

It's took time but a week after our first post we've got the dealers, they've ordered the materials to make these visors which are now coming through and they are prepared to help as many of you as we possibly can.

PLEASE REMEMBER, this is a collaboration of many companies working to help you, this isn't any one company, we are a team. Therefore, if you need our help their is only one name to call, the team at #makethevisor.

Leave a comment, give us a like, share if you wish, nudge a local window film company into knowing what we're doing, we just want you to know that we are on your side. And if you are a window film company reading this, contact us, join us and the #makethevisor team and make a difference by helping not just OUR NHS but your NHS.

Lets get these visors out to those that need it the most.

Thank you.

NEW UPDATE 5th April 2020. ** YOU MUST READ **

Due to the massive demand for these visors we have put out a national and worldwide plea to every window film manufacturer, supplier and installation company both in the UK and throughout the world to step up, come out of hiding and start making these visors to help every single doctor, nurse, carer, Gp get protected.

Today I saw pictures of nurses wearing just "reading glasses" to deal with covid19 patients, THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!!

We need every single one of you to help, this is so important to us, we can't let our amazing professionals be at risk.

Please share this to post to everyone you know. We've made a new video appealing to every window film company to help, WE NEED YOU TO SHARE THAT TOO, leave a comment on that page. If you can do that we can not only help doctors and nurses locally but all over the world.
We are already getting window film companies messaging us and wanting to make these, let's get all of them doing it.

I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A FEW HUNDRED VISORS REQUESTED, WE NOW HAVE OVER 30,000 VISOR REQUESTS.

We can't do this alone, we can't make 30,000 visors but if you share, leave a comment asking your friends to share and contact their local window film or car tinting companies to get them to make them we can all work together to help these doctors and nurses and not put them at risk.
We're not doing this for us or our company, we don't care about that, we just desperately need to help keep these people as safe as we possibly can.

Thank you, Darren & Melissa Xx

------------------------------------------

We are currently making medical visors to donate to the doctors and nurses of the NHS out of our security films due to the shortage of PPE equipment throughout the UK.
Offering them for free to whoever needs them, please contact us if you know somebody who requires them. We are hoping to make 50 - 60 a day so please share, like and pass the message on.

By sharing, you are showing your support to the amazing work our doctors and nurses are doing...for all of us.

Thank you.

Hi I need 2- one for my husband who is a paramedic and one for his crew mate. They are struggling to get PPE equipment. Could you please provide them with the protective visors thank you

University Hospitals of Derby and Burton would really appreciate any donations of protective gear ❀️ We would be forever grateful x

These would be amazing for Gillies ward at Nottingham city hospital if we could please be considered. We were made into a covid 19 ward almost 3 weeks ago, and I know these would make staff feel that little bit safer! Xx

Great job your doing, only supply to hospitals and medical places, no one else need them. Care workers do too, so just supply them to their office addresses that way they go to the right people.who are front line and most at risk.

York maternity unit are desperate and so are many others also ! It’s people like you who made Britain what it used to be !! We all can pull together and beet this C 19... well done !

Brilliant! Thank you ❀ We would be greatly appreciative of them at Cardiac Intensive Care, Trent Cardiac Centre. Nottingham City Hospital please ❀❀❀ (Newly converted Covid unit)

My 86/88 year old parents have carers coming into their house three times a day. The agency that provide them are not issuing any sort of facial protection to the carers. A few of these would be helpful to them. They live in the Nottingham area.

Hi these look fabulous thank you so much. Please can we order 15 for all the GPs and nurses at Moulton Surgery Northampton NN3 7PQ. Many thanks.

We would like some please in A&E in Warwick hospital please. There could be vital for us. Thank you so much for doing this.

Hi there, I work at Daybrook Medical Practice, Nottingham. It would be a great help for clinical staff to see patients and keep them safe. Thank you

Thank you. I work at Glenfield Hospital and helping to coordinate the COVID response. It would be great to distribute them to all the COVID wards we have and our admissions unit as we are seeing lots of patients. The admissions unit (CDU) in particular could do with more visors. Please message me if able.

Great job guys my friends and I go funded to raise miney for this kind of kit after a nurse I know contracted the virus due to no PPE. We've raised £300 small amount but like Dunkirk small boats save lives. Cant get masks or visors anywhere. When I applaud on Thursday oit will be for you guys too. Have shared your post.
