You can see it in nearly every supermarket at the moment: transparent clear solid polycarbonate that is suspended from the ceiling to create a partition between customers and cashiers. Why are sneeze screens so effective against the spread of coronavirus and for what situations are these plastic protective cough screens most applicable? In this blog, we explain the various types of counter screens and how they can be used.
Plastic shielding at the checkout
With Covid-19 spreading rapidly, it’s now more important than it’s ever been for companies to ensure that the workplace is as safe and hygienic as possible, both for employees and for members of the public. The government advice is to stay 6 feet apart is proving quite difficult in practice. Prime examples of this are at supermarket checkouts, collection points, pharmacies, bakeries and greengrocers, where people are constantly going in and out. To prevent the spread of the disease, we have developed various types of plastic protective screens manufactured from transparent polycarbonate sheet, sometimes known as Plexiglass.
Why does acrylic sheet protect against coronavirus?
As you probably know already, the coronavirus is spread mainly through droplets in the air from sneezes and coughs. A sneeze screen positioned in front of a cash register or counter acts as a barrier to these airborne droplets and protects cashiers, pharmacists and receptionists, amongst others. These shop counter screens help to separate uninfected people from those who may already have the disease. .
Types of plastic protective screens
In our range, we offer different types of size as per size needed of cough screen, also referred to in the market as plastic cash register screen, polycarbonate counter screen, sneeze screen counter, plastic screen for a cash register or polycarbonate Covid-19 screen. We offer two standing variants in different sizes. The smaller counter or counter screen has one cutout and measures 24 inches wide x 32 inches high, so it’s ideal for shops with a small counter and with only one cash register. The larger size available up to 48 inches x 96 inches is useful in areas with a larger counter area. For example, one slot can be used for the ATM and the other for pushing through the product purchased. With pedestals included, you can install your new coronavirus plastic shielding in no time.
Same shields can be used as hanging polycarbonate screen for checkouts, particularly useful for supermarkets and other locations that don’t have room to stand a sneeze screen on the counter. It’s easy to hang these plastic screens from the ceiling using the two suspension holes.
