covid-19-protection-sneeze-guards-shield-barrierBy now, you’re probably very familiar with what sneeze guards are and how they can effectively protect consumers, retail workers, and essential workers from being exposed to the COVID-19 virus. Sneeze guards have always been used in the food and retail industry in a wide range of capacities to protect both employees and consumers. But 2020 has certainly seen a massive surge in the supply and demand of these protective barrier shields across numerous industries.

Let’s take a closer look at what sneeze guards are and how they can prevent the spread of COVID-19.

What Are Sneeze Guards and Protective Barrier Shields?

Sneeze guards, also known as protective barrier shields, are clear partitions usually made out of plexiglass that are designed to block harmful germs, bacteria, and viruses from coming into contact with essential workers and products. Traditionally, sneeze guards were most commonly used in the food service industry such as sandwich shops, buffets, bakeries, cafeterias, meat and fish counters at grocery stores, and restaurants that contain hot tables to prevent germs from getting into the food.

But the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has seen the use of sneeze guards and protective barriers spread to a variety of other industries for different purposes—namely the protection of employees and consumers. Sneeze guards have proven to be effective physical distancing tools that prevent employees and customers from getting too close to one another during service transactions.

In the past year, businesses within all sectors have been forced to take a step back and seriously re-evaluate their customer and employee safety standards. Government health and safety guidelines have provided useful recommendations such as encouraging customers and employees to physically distance from one another, wear masks in public, and wash their hands frequently.

Protective barrier shields, which are typically made of plexiglass (acrylic), have also been erected in virtually every commercial setting where it makes sense. The goal is to protect everyone who works and shops in these establishments while keeping as many businesses open as possible.

Sneeze guard barrier suppliers have been hard at work trying to meet the increasing demand for durable, multipurpose, adaptable, and flexible partitions that have become instrumental in preventing the spread of COVID-19. These barriers are extremely easy to install, maintain, and clean. They can be configured to fit within practically any store setup and display to protect vulnerable products and essential workers.

Virtually indestructible, plexiglass can handle all kinds of usage in a variety of environments and it can also withstand longstanding contact with all kinds of chemicals and industrial cleaning solutions that are used to kill germs on its surface.
