Sneeze Guards Control COVID-19 Transmission

Sneeze guards are a barrier of protection for infection control and industrial hygiene.
Give your employees and customers protection and confidence at work with sneeze guards made from industrial-strength, light-weight, aluminum structural framing.
Social Barrier
Industrial sneeze guards are less reliant on behavior to provide protection from COVID-19 transmission. These barriers reduce any unnecessary contact and enforce spacing requirements. You can reduce the contact points between your employees and customers with a physical barrier.
Clean Surface
The smooth surface of the acrylic panels allows for easy sanitation for reducing possible contamination.
Have your guarding customized to the size needed for your work space, adapt to fit other sizes, and use it for future applications.

Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for Pandemics

Proper planning allows employers to better protect their employees and lessen the impact of a pandemic.
"Occupational safety and health professionals use a framework called the "hierarchy of controls" to select ways of dealing with workplace hazards. The hierarchy of controls prioritizes intervention strategies based on the premise that the best way to control a hazard is to systematically remove it from the workplace, rather than relying on employees to reduce their exposure. In the setting of a pandemic, this hierarchy should be used in concert with current public health recommendations." OSHA 3327-02N 2007
Along with administrative controls and public health measures "...during a pandemic, engineering controls may be effective in reducing exposure to some sources of pandemic influenza and not others. For example, installing sneeze guards between customers and employees would provide a barrier to transmission. The use of barrier protections, such as sneeze guards, is common practice for both infection control and industrial hygiene."
