During these times, the Government advice strongly recommends the use of sneeze screens when serving customers or protecting food which is not packaged. Covid-19 particles can survive for up to 3 days on surfaces and can be passed through the air from person to person if there is not enough distance between them. Due to the highly contagious nature of the virus, implementing social distancing screens is an effective way to prevent the transmission and protect both staff members and customers during this tricky time.
Perspex screens for counters are ideal for use at checkouts in retail and hospitality settings as well as within offices and other desk based roles which require face to face communication. In cases where these counter based sneeze screens will not work, a free standing sneeze guard can be used. Although less widely used, these are effective for creating distance in high traffic areas such as gyms, supermarket queues and hairdressers where people may be required to use equipment near others.
The Benefits of Social Distancing Screens
Both Perspex screens for counters and free standing sneeze guards can be used for a multitude of purposes across different industries, allowing both workers and visitors to feel safer and ensuring social distancing is maintained. The implementation of sneeze screens offer various benefits:
1. Easy to maintain. The simplicity of social distancing screens mean they can be disinfected on regular occasions with minimal effort, requiring only a simple wipe down to keep them clean and ready for use.
2. The various options mean all business owners can find a solution to suit. With easy installation and no lasting damage once they can be removed, no professional fitters or maintenance will be required. Free standing sneeze guards are easy to move around and can be repositioned if required, offering flexibility to meet your business operations.
3. Non-invasive working. Perspex screens for counters can be used on your regular working space, allowing full communication through the divider and allowing life to continue with as much normality as possible. Although governmental guidelines are being followed, one on one meetings can still be carried out safely.
