Welcome to the Darling Downs PPE Page!

Global Need

Usage of quality Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our frontline healthcare workers is critical during this time. COVID-19 is highly contagious, and face shield protection is an effective infection control method to protect the eyes, nose and mouth from direct contact with the virus from sick patients.

In light of world-wide PPE shortages, local manufacturers need to rise to the challenge.
