PPE Production at PS1

Keeping our healthcare workers safe is critical for the fight against covid-19. At Pumping Station: One, we are using our equipment to help fill the need while PPE is in short supply.

I need PPE

To receive face shields, contact Molly:  [email protected]

We are currently making the 3d printed face shield endorsed by Swedish Covenant Hospital.

They are free of charge, and we can deliver within the Chicago area.

The reusable headband can be sanitized with standard procedures. Replacement shields can be made from any letter- or A4-sized transparent plastic sheet using a standard 3-hole punch.

We are also actively testing new designs and production methods. Please contact us with any questions or requests, and check here for updates.

We are currently making the 3d printed face shield endorsed by Swedish Covenant Hospital. If you have access to a 3D printer, you can produce these at home and bring them to our drop-off location. We will bundle your prints with ours and ensure that they go to healthcare workers who need them.

If we switch our production to other designs, we will post the information here and contact you directly if you are already partnering with us.

If you don’t have transparency sheets, we will still gladly accept your 3D-printed headbands. Contact us for the drop-off location. We will make sure they get distributed.
