When Is A Hanging Sneeze Guard Required At Reception Desks And Counters?

A hanging plastic divider or sneeze guard barrier should be used at businesses, professional offices and reception areas wherever workers are in personal face-to-face contact with other workers or customers. A hanging sneeze guard is ideal to help protect both your employees and customers while still allowing interaction between them. Washable clear divider panels that separate people help to establish a sense of trust and reinforce your commitment to safety. Hanging sneeze guards that are suspended above the reception counters parallel to it are a low cost PPE solution to the social distancing challenge. This item is a commercial grade acrylic panel cough & sneeze guard that can be used hanging above the desktops & countertops or above almost any transactional table or counter. It is used at doctor's offices, dental offices, hotel reception desks, ticket counters and work desks at corporate facilities. It is also used at retail stores, grocery & c-stores. 

What are Protective Shields & Hanging Sneeze Guard Standards and Regulations? 

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 24 to 40 inches tall to create an effective physical barrier.
