A sneeze guard (also known as a sneeze shield or a cough guard) is a glass partition that creates a physical barrier to protect employees, customers, and/or products from physical contact and helps prevent the spread of germs.
The first sneeze guard model was patented in 1959 by a restaurateur. As such, sneeze guards are already commonplace in many restaurants, especially around buffets, to help prevent spread of germs. Since then, these glass partitions have also become popular in places like banks to protect employees from physical contact. However, due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) global pandemic, more and more businesses are investing in these glass shields to keep customers and employees safe and healthy.
Sneeze guards are particularly useful for:
- Retail Point of Sale
- Shared Work Spaces / Desktops
- Ticket Booths
- Pharmacies / Clinics / Hospitals
- Car Dealerships
- Reception / Front Desk
- Grocery Stores / Convenience Stores
Because the glass is transparent, products can be scanned through the glass, preventing the need for products to transfer between hands. Payment terminals can be positioned on the customer side provide additional safety.
Techni-Glass makes custom sneeze guards to fit your exact specifications, depending on each individual business and use case. Here are some customization options to consider:
- Cutouts/Openings (for transactions or to communicate through)
- Digitally printed logos, icons, etc. anywhere on the glass
Techni-Glass also provides metal mounting hardware in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your specific business needs.
