Reduce Spread Of Viruses With A Hanging Acrylic Divider Sneeze Guard At Checkout

Experts agree, the use of a hanging plastic divider, food shield or sneeze guard at your grocery store, c-store or liquor stores helps stop the spread of coronavirus, covide-19 and other germs & diseases. A hanging sneeze guard is used to protect employees and customers. For best results, use a washable clear divider that creates a physical separation at the checkout counter. Sneeze guards that are hung above the counter can be manufactured out of either tempered glass, acrylic or other plastic materials. However, lighter material like plastic is easier to install and generally costs less than glass. This item is a commercial grade acrylic panel sneeze guard that can be used hanging above a checkout counter or above almost any transactional table or counter. 

How Far Above A Counter Should Hanging Sneeze Guards Be Placed? 

Sneeze guard guidelines generally require that they create a barrier between the mouths of people and other people or to food. This reduces the chance of contamination and helps slow down the spread of disease. The maximum space between the floor and the bottom edge of a sneeze guard should be 52 inches or less. When placed above an ADA compliant checkout counter with a height of 38 inches, that should leave approximately 12 to 14 inches of open space that is used for transactional or money exchanging purposes. Usually, hanging sneeze guards are positioned parallel to and directly above the customer facing edge of the checkout counter. This is due to the narrow space available in most checkout lanes. Hanging sneeze guards can also be placed above other transactional surfaces such as tabletops and countertops or display cases. These have heights that can vary from 30 inches to 42 inches tall. A sneeze guard suspended above a checkout counter should be at least 34 inches tall to create a correct barrier. We suggest a minimum of a 40 inch tall guard. Check with your local health department sneeze guard requirements for additional information.  

What Type Of Material Is Best For Hanging Plastic Sneeze Guards? 

For the best results, use washable and clear material for hanging sneeze guards or food shields. However, an edge frame or edge coloring is recommended on the sneeze guard so that the presence of it is noticeable by people to minimize the chance of someone inadvertently bumping into it. Sneeze guard materials include plastic, tempered glass or acrylic. For portable sneeze guards, acrylic is recommended to keep weight down. This item is constructed out of solid acrylic and is for sale as a complete kit. It includes a 1/8 inch thick solid acrylic panel. The panel measures 40 inches wide by 40 inches tall. This larger size is ideal for most standard checkout counters. This sneeze guard can be placed hung above any countertop or tabletop. The unit is designed to hang from a ceiling. Unit supplied with two ceiling grid clips, two adjustable airplane wire cable sets and two "S" hooks. The hanging hardware cable sets have a maximum hang length of 14 feet.
