Helping our front line workers

During the coronavirus pandemic, Liniar saw an urgent need for personal protective equipment (PPE) to help our NHS and front line workers to stay safe. Whilst its manufacturing facilities had to temporarily close, a plan was formed – and Liniar protective visors can now be ordered by anyone in the UK.

Following the development of prototype visors using its onsite 3D printer and working around the clock to produce these in their hundreds, the company went on to invest £20k in an injection mould tool so that it could continue producing the visors in multiple thousands – read the full story here.

Ordering Liniar visors

Initially, Liniar pledged to provide 30,000 visors free of charge to NHS front line staff and key support workers. With the help of customers and other businesses who are purchasing Liniar’s visors for a nominal fee, additional donations to front line workers are possible. This means we’ll continue to supply visors free of charge to NHS staff and those in not-for-profit care professions for as long as we can. For our current levels of donations, please see the counter below.

We can do this by supplying visors to businesses at a nominal charge of £2 each (plus delivery where applicable). This is not a profit-making revenue stream for Liniar – all proceeds are put back into providing future PPE to the front line in the battle against COVID-19.

If you would like to order Liniar visors for your business, please complete all the fields below and pay securely online with a credit or debit card. Visors are supplied in boxes of 25 units, each containing visors, acetate sheets and full instructions.

  • If you are an NHS or front line worker (see FAQs below for a full list), please contact us by email at info@liniar.co.uk for a discount code to take the price to zero.
  • If you are a Liniar customer, you can order visors through LiniarConnect – select item LINVIS.


If you would like to order Liniar visors, we would really appreciate a donation to be made to our chosen charity Rainbows Children’s Hospice.

Please send proof of donation to marketing@liniar.co.uk and let us know how many boxes you would like and we will get those sent to you.

The LINVIS full face visor has been designed and manufactured to the principles of BS EN 166:2002. Whilst the product does not carry a CE Mark, it has been thoughtfully designed to be fit for purpose during the coronavirus pandemic, by an award-winning company with a reputation for product innovation.

The design we chose was specially selected for comfort, as we understand the need to wear the visors for long periods of time. The feedback we have received indicates they are more comfortable than other ‘standard issue’ PPE.
