Custom Sneeze Guards
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and operate businesses. To minimize the spread of the virus, people are doing whatever they can to protect themselves and looking for innovative solutions that allow life to go on as normally as possible. As the economy reopens, businesses are implementing new safety measures to keep employees and customers safe.
Protection barriers such as sneeze guards are a simple yet effective way to prevent the spread of respiratory droplets during face-to-face interactions. Aero Industries manufactures sneeze guard shields according to each client’s specifications. These portable protection walls can be customized to fit any space and allow businesses to provide healthier and safer environments.
Sneeze Guards and Shields 101
Sneeze guards or shields are see-through physical barriers that prevent the airborne spread of respiratory droplets between people. They are unobtrusive and highly adaptable to different locations. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the usage of these shields has expanded beyond hospitals to any location where people need to be in close proximity to each other.
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, health officials are recommending people remain a minimum of six feet apart. However, this is very difficult in point-of-sales situations where customers and employees need to be near one another. It is also difficult to maintain safe distances in crowded classrooms, public transportation, and various other locations. Sneeze guards are the solution to this issue.
There are several types of sneeze guards to choose from, and the specific design can be adapted for individual locations. For example, large sneeze guards with slots in the bottom are suitable for transferring money or merchandise, while smaller shields can be used on classroom desks. It’s important to choose sneeze guard materials that offer durability, water resistance, cost-effectiveness, and optimal clarity.
Sneeze Guard Materials
Aero Industries’ produces sneeze guards and shields from the following materials:
- Clear Acrylic/Plexiglass. Plexiglass is the trademarked form of acrylic plastic; there are no differences between the two materials. These materials are lightweight, transparent, resistant to chemicals and temperature variations, and easy to clean. This makes them an ideal material for sneeze guards as they can be repeatedly sterilized while ensuring effective communication at a safe distance.
- Aluminum Frame. Our sneeze guards are surrounded by a lightweight aluminum extrusion frame. Aluminum is lightweight and strong, providing a frame that is durable and easy to handle.
There are numerous applications for custom sneeze guards. Any location where people have to be in close proximity to each other can benefit from the added protection against the spread of germs. Some of the most common applications include:
Cash registers and reception desks
Hospitals, medical offices, and pharmacies
