Temporary and Portable Sneeze Guards

Temporary sneeze guards are barriers between employees and customers that reduce the transmission of germs. Potential uses for temporary sneeze guards include placement between servers and patrons, between beautician stations inside a busy salon or even between employees working in close proximity for brief periods of time.

Temporary sneeze guards allow businesses to resume or retain normal function while stemming the spread of germs, keeping their community safe by creating a temporary barrier. While permanent sneeze guards may be the right solution for some businesses, portable sneeze guards or plexiglass shields are also very effective – affording employers more flexibility in configuring workspaces and in serving customers.

What Are Portable Sneeze Guards?

Plexiglass shields also known as portable sneeze guards, or temporary sneeze guards or acrylic shields are terms used interchangeably to describe germ barriers that are easily moved. Commonly made of plexiglass or Lexan, portable sneeze guards are self-supporting structures that prevent the spread of germs between employees and customers.

Temporary sneeze guards are typically lightweight, easy to move, may roll on casters, or are hung from the ceiling. Many are portable, with table or desktop styles that allow individuals to move them from location to location, for example placed on a table at a restaurant by - a server - taking an order.

Unlike permanent sneeze guards, portable sneeze guards do not have a frame and are never permanently affixed to a table or desktop. Sneeze guards must be self-supporting to be considered temporary or portable.

Portable Sneeze Guards: An Affordable Solution

Because they are made of Lexan polycarbonate or plexiglass, and because they require little to no installation, portable sneeze guards are more affordable than permanent sneeze guards. Portable sneeze guards may be the most appropriate solution for your business.

It should be noted that the life span of a temporary sneeze guard may be considerably shorter than its permanent counterpart. Lexan and plexiglass shields may yellow, scratch or wear over time, making them difficult to see through and challenging to thoroughly clean.
