Keeping Children Safe in School Using Plastic Sneeze Guards
As the upcoming 2020/2021 school year quickly approaches we’ve found that school districts and furniture manufacturers are rapidly sourcing and securing materials to ensure a safe start to the school year. Installing the recommended Sneeze Guards/Sneeze Barriers is a proven way to limit the spread of germs and viruses. It is an ideal solution for schools, daycare centers, and related settings where children are in close proximity to each other.
These transparent sneeze guards do their jobs very well by blocking the spread of bacteria, and other pathogens while being unobtrusive in a classroom setting due to their optically clear color. Plastic Welding & Fabrication, Ltd. (PWF) has considered all obstacles when designing a solution for the learning environment by adding slip-resistant rubber pieces (so barriers cannot easily slide off the desk), rounded and de-burred corners for additional safety measures (so students/staff cannot cut themselves), and 90 degree top fasteners to keep the shield in place.
Plastic sneeze barriers are commonly made from acrylic, but they can also be made using a polycarbonate sheet for greater durability. Not only are these guards useful for protecting children and staff in a school, but they have also proven helpful in other locations such as pharmacies, grocery store checkout counters, convenience stores, and a wide array of different businesses and organizations.
The presence of these barriers will provide peace of mind to students, parents, and staff alike that steps are being taken to increase safety and combat the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses, such as the flu.
