If you are opening up your business again, you may need to invest in a countertop sneeze guard. COVID-19 can spread from person-to-person very easily. In most cases, individuals pass contagions when they are within 6 feet or closer of each other. In fact, sneezes can travel at 100 mph and coughs at 50 mph. They are capable of expelling up to 100,000 or 3,000 droplets. In the current climate, if the person is infected, each droplet is a potential source of Coronavirus.

The government has been advising us that people are most contagious when they are symptomatic. However, it’s also possible for people to be contagious even before their symptoms have fully developed. Consequently, you could have a customer with minor or possibly even no symptoms, potentially putting your staff at and other customers at risk. 

Furthermore, we are still some time away from having a vaccine. This means alternative measures have to be put in place to help protect both employees and customers moving forward.  

With that in mind, Wrights Plastics offers cost-effective protective countertop screens that will help fight against the ongoing risks of infection. 

Countertop Sneeze Screens

A sneeze screen is also known as a screen guard, protective screen, shield or barrier. It is typically made from clear, high-impact acrylic. They are designed to prevent respiratory droplets from coming into contact with your staff, who sit or stand behind it. Depending on your business, a countertop sneeze screen may provide your employees and customers with the protection they need during the ongoing pandemic.

A countertop sneeze guard should still facilitate the exchange of money, bagging of items, or other essential check out processes. With that in mind, our countertop sneeze screens are lightweight, easy to install and most importantly, they’re effective.
