Plexiglass FAQS

ARE PLEXIGLASS SHIELDS EFFECTIVE FOR COVID-19? 

Plexiglass Barriers, Shields, or Sneeze Guards serve as a transparent shield to catch respiratory droplets and inhibit direct contact while still allowing staff and customers to see and communicate with each other to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19.  

Once the Plexiglass are in place, it doesn’t require any training and is not dependent on individual correct usage (as required for masks). 

There are different grades of Plexiglass. We choose high-grade acrylic to provide long-term use so it doesn’t need to be continually supplied.  


WHY USE PLEXIGLASS VS GLASS? 

  • Plexiglass is lightweight and weather-resistant 
  • More impact resistant than glass  
  • Heat resistant 
  • Chemical resistant 

 

HOW TO CLEAN PLEXIGLASS? 

Most Plexiglass can be cleaned using rubbing alcohol or soap and water, however always refer to the manufacturer’s instruction manual as the materials they use may react differently to various substances.
