What Is a Sneeze Guard?
A sneeze guard can be defined as a plexi-, tempered- or Lexan-glass barrier designed to protect food, goods and individuals from the spread of airborne germs. Sneeze guards aren’t just for buffets. The glass barriers you see at other businesses, such as gas stations and post offices, are also a type of sneeze guard used to preserve employee and customer health.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, these glass barriers have become more important than ever.
What Are Sneeze Guards Made Of?
Sneeze guards are commonly made of 3 materials:
Plexiglass — Made of acrylic, plexiglass shields are light weight and more scratch resistant than Lexan shields. Plexiglass shields are known to resist yellowing and are stronger than standard glass.
Lexan Glass — Similar to plexiglass, Lexan is not glass at all but a polycarbonate resin thermoplastic. Lexan is best suited for situations where it may be impacted, because it is more flexible than plexiglass or regular glass.
Standard Glass — For permanent applications glass may be a better option because of its stability and increased resistance to scratching over plexiglass and Lexan glass.
The choice of glass barrier material depends on several factors, including the location of installation and how permanent you desire the installation to be. If your installation is permanent, consider standard glass. If your installation is seasonal or semi-permanent, consider a Lexan or plexiglass shield, as both options are easier to move and, in some cases, less expensive than standard glass.
