In the midst of this ongoing health crisis, employee and customer safety remain a top concern for businesses. Portable sneeze guards help businesses maintain safety and infection control protocols while continuing to provide the best possible customer service. Milford’s selection of portable sneeze guards help you meet all state and federal safety guidelines to keep your business up and running.
What is a Portable Sneeze Guard?
Sneeze guards have been a standard feature at buffet style restaurants and salad bars for decades. First patented in 1959, the FDA mandated the use of food guards in the 1960s to block airborne particles that are expelled during sneezes, coughs and verbal communication from contaminating food. Portable sneeze guards are made from heavy-duty plastic (such as acrylic) and can be used in a variety of business locations, such as:
- Medical offices
- Car dealerships
- Leasing offices
- Employee desks
- Cashier counters
- Customer service kiosks
The Benefits of Portable Sneeze Guards
Made from durable plastic, portable sneeze guards can be easily – and frequently – cleaned without becoming damaged or breaking down. Sneeze guards can be quickly sanitized with disinfecting wipes or mild soap. They can also be swapped out for more intensive cleaning or between worker shifts to minimize cross-contamination.
Portable sneeze guards are an effective barrier to airborne particles without being obtrusive. They allow for clear communication between employees and customers at registers, service counters, etc., while still providing an extra level of protection. Sneeze guards also help encourage social distancing and can be placed between employees to reduce workplace transmission.
Milford’s portable sneeze guards can be installed on any counter, desk or workspace. Easy to set-up and breakdown, they can be easily reconfigured or moved wherever you need them at a moment’s notice to keep up with your business’ changing needs.
