From the way we work, to what we do in our spare time, COVID-19 has changed everything in our lives. As the government continues to encourage people to work remotely, some individuals aren’t as lucky to have this option. In light of this shifting normality, people are increasingly cautious about returning to their jobs.
With employers looking for new ways to optimise their work spaces and increase safety, protective screens and guards have become a necessity in all commercial and office environments. To fulfill this demand, Guardian Window Film are now supporting employers by providing a full range of safety screens and infection guards for a variety of uses.
Read on to find out how you can protect your staff and customers from COVID-19 with cough and sneeze guards.
Are Safety Guards Effective Against COVID-19 Infection?
In short, yes. Like other respiratory viruses, COVID-19 spreads through airborne droplets originating from sneezes and coughs, as well as by direct contact with someone infected or contaminated surfaces and objects.
Installing sneeze screens and cough guards around the workplace will create a protective barrier which helps prevent both workers and customers from contracting or spreading the disease.
Supermarkets, pharmacies and even corner shops have already positioned transparent infection screens on their countertops, cash registers and around their checkout areas.
Protective Screens for Retail, Pharmacies & Medical Practices
The social distancing advice to keep a minimum of 2m distance between individuals has proven to be quite difficult to put into practice. The most crowded spaces remain supermarkets, pharmacies, doctor surgeries, bakeries and collection points.
Since shopping for food, going to the doctor and collecting prescriptions are necessary activities, ensuring that your employees and other members of the public are safe is crucial. Guardian Window Film offers a range of transparent cough screens and counter sneeze guards to protect your team and your customers.
Our sneeze & cough guards are individually designed to suit your needs, and can be custom-made to match the size and style of your counter. They are easy to wipe and maintain high light transmission, making them very convenient for busy work environments.
Transparent Screens for Offices, Schools & Hospitality
Although schools, hospitality venues and most offices remain shut, it’s important to ensure that adequate measures are put in place before lockdown eases and things get back to normal.
Our acrylic glass screens are ideal for open plan offices, classrooms, pubs and restaurants. We’ve specifically designed them to maintain the sound, light and visual feel, as well as preserve the natural, transparent look of your space.
These guards work equally well in manufacturing environments and production working areas. They help retain the compact efficiencies of working in close proximity to other people, without compromising the safety of your team.
