Benefits of Social Distancing Signs
Social Distancing has become important to keep ourselves and others safe and minimize the spread of the COVID19 virus. One of the main benefits of implementing Social Distancing Signs is that they provide a constant reminder of the need of Social Distancing. In our busy lives and when we are in unfamiliar areas it’s easy to loose focus and unintentionally forget about the importance of social distancing. In addition to it being a reminder, it also provides an assurance towards your employees of the importance of keeping a safe working environment.
Sneeze Guards & Partition Walls
Sneeze Guards or Partition Walls are a must-have in all areas where people are interacting face to face. Think about check-out counters, hotel receptions, open office works spaces, food & store counters, banks, doctor’s offices and many more. Sneeze Guards are already regulated in certain types of establishments and help employees & customers from airborne bacteria and germs spread through sneezing or coughing.
Sneeze Guards are available in different varieties and a few things to consider include: size, shape & material. Most Sneeze Guards are made from acrylic which is highly transparent and doesn’t scratch that easily.

Acrylic Sneeze Guards - Custom size, made to fit
As already mentioned above, sneeze guards are becoming compulsory in many facilities. This means that as a business you can’t do without it anymore. It is a crucial tool to protect your employees as well as your customers or guests. Acrylic sneeze guards are very effective to reduce the spread of viruses and germs, during this Covid19 Pandemic.
Types of Sneeze Guards
- Standing Sneeze Guards: This is the most common type of partition wall at this moment. The main advantage of this type of barrier is that they are free standing so they don’t need installation and they are movable. The acrylic shields rests on acrylic feet, making it ideal to stand on any surface. A standing Sneeze Guard is ideal for counters like in a bank or a hotel reception. They also work well in office spaces, for example at the office reception or on desks to protect employees.
- Hanging Sneeze Guards: These come into place when space is limited. The advantage of a hanging sneeze guard is that you don’t need space for it’s feet. This will optimize the space and makes it more practical for certain areas. An example where this type of barrier is preferred is at a cash register. Think about supermarkets, pharmacies or gas stations. If you require assistance with the hanging, our installation team can assist.
At Sign Partners we provide Sneeze Guards in standard sizes as well as custom sizes. A very standard size is 48 inches wide x 48 inches tall. If you are working with limited space we also provide custom sizes. Our team can assist with a site survey to recommend the correct size for your space. All our acrylic shields are custom made though, providing the flexibility for any dimension and shape. Therefore adding a pass-through cut out to exchange money or documents, is easy as is.
Material & Cleaning
Our sneeze guards are made from high quality clear acrylic. Acrylic is sometimes also referred to as plastic or plexiglass. They can be made from different thicknesses, varying between 1/8” and 1/4”thick. The recommended thickness will depend on the usage and your budget. Acrylic has several benefits opposed to use glass. Firstly it is much stronger, secondly it is much lighter and thirdly it is much safer.
Although acrylic it is much stronger then glass, it is also softer. Therefore it is important to use the right type of cleaner to avoid scratching the acrylic. We recommend a plastic cleaner that is widely available in large stores. Use the cleaner in combination with a micro-fiber cloth and it will give the best results.
