Rise In Plexiglass Protection In COVID Times
According to Google, “sneeze guards” is a keyword that has increased by 200% in search rankings recently.
Because we (all us humans) are itching to get out of the house and hoping for life to go back to “normal” or “pre-COVID.”
Here’s the harsh reality we must all face in this global pandemic: COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon. BUT, that does not mean we cannot resume to some semblance of normalcy.
As we enter new phases of the stay at home order where businesses slowly start to re-open, we will need protection (employees and customers).
For this reason, many manufacturing businesses that would ordinarily be closed are considered essential as they turn to making plexiglass products for protection. For example, CTECH Manufacturing is known for cabinets, carts and drawers; however, they will now also produce sneeze guards for Road America.
Plexiglass, or clear acrylic, is durable and easy to clean. For this reason, it’s the main material being used to make various types of sneeze guards.
Here at Axiom Print, we’ve come up with three types of products:
- Sneeze Guard for counters - for banks, nail salons, offices, etc.
- Stand Alone Sneeze Guard - for medical offices, waiting areas, etc.
- Sneeze Guard for vehicles - for Uber, Lyft or taxicab drivers
As more and more businesses reopen to help the economy, business owners will have to take a reasonable amount of accountability to ensure they are implementing safety precautions for employees and customers.
Sure, businesses cannot 100% eliminate the risk of an employee or customer contracting COVID-19...but they can reduce the risk!
It’s a tricky situation as politicians try and figure out a way to prevent economic decline while safeguarding citizens...so all we can do is buy ourselves time for the CDC to find a vaccine that works.
How do we buy ourselves time?
By taking extra safety precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve.
Plexiglass sneeze guards can help stop droplets from hitting your face when someone across from you sneezes, coughs or speaks.
As you know, we’ve been making sneeze guards for countertops in our local production facility and that has become one of our top products in the past few weeks.
We also have two new products:
- Ride Guard - A 1/8 thick clear acrylic sneeze guard for vehicles, specifically for ridesharing vehicles or taxi cabs to protect backseat passengers and drivers.
- Stand Alone Sneeze Guard - A clear acrylic tall sneeze guard with an aluminum (or wooden) stand that is meant to separate people that are sitting in a common area, like a clinic’s waiting room.
