Although sneeze guards have been used in the medical and food industry for decades to stop the spread of germs, there has never been more of a need for them.

During the coronavirus pandemic, many businesses had plastic sneeze guards and screens installed to stop the spread of the virus and to ensure that their company was compatible with COVID regulations.

However, although many restrictions have been lifted, there are still many reasons why sneeze guards are important.

In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the reasons why sneeze guards continue to be relevant in 2022 and beyond.

To summarise, they are:

  • Preventing the spread of germs

Sneeze guards help prevent the spread of germs

If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is that anyone can be carrying harmful germs without realising it.

Otherwise known as social distancing screens. Plastic sneeze guards help to ensure germs are not spread between staff members and customers.

This not only helps to protect your customers and employees but also reduces the likelihood of needing to close down your business due to an outbreak of coronavirus or illness.

They last a long time – robust and durable

Because all of our sneeze screens are made from incredibly durable plastic which means that they can be used for years without the fear of cracks or wear.

Better yet, all of our plastic sneeze screens can be individually designed to suit every need.

Whether you are looking for a free-standing sneeze screen or one one that fits perfectly within a complicated desk setup we can help.

Our team can help to create correctly-sized sneeze screens to suit your needs.

Sneeze guards can act as noise reducers

If you are working in a busy office and struggle to hear your clients when they are speaking on the phone, sneeze guards not only act as a way to prevent germs but also work as a noise reducer.

This makes it easier for you to speak to clients on the phone while the rest of the office is talking.

Peace of mind

Plastic sneeze screens offer peace of mind for customers and site visitors.

Upon arrival at reception, they will know you are committed to protecting them from Covid-19.

This responsible approach will create a positive view of your company, and will only help your business to be seen in the correct light.
