Businesses and offices all over the world have had to adapt and change the way the way normal working days operate following the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Protection screens and sneeze screens have fast become the most requested product, with every busines needing to integrate safe social distancing measures to ensure employee and customer safety.
With so many plastic screens available, it can be difficult to know exactly what works best for your workplace and environment. This handy buyer guide explains why these protection screens are needed and the best way of integrating them into your workplace.
Social distancing means you are not allowed to come into close contact with other people that are not included in your household or social bubble.
These safety measures have been recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and enforced by the UK Government to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, between those who are infected, and those who are not.
The UK Government guidelines currently states that there should be a minimum of 1 metres between you and anyone that is not in your social bubble.
Social distancing is in place to restrict contact and interaction to slow; and eventually stop the spread of the infection in the UK.
This global pandemic has seen most countries around the world plummet into lockdown with business closing their doors and the global economy coming to a standstill.
Throughout the pandemic and for the foreseeable future, social distancing, has, and will be a part of everyday life as we know it.
The lockdown is slowly being lifted in the UK, this means business are attempting to open and reignite the UK economy.
Even with businesses reopening, the Government have issued strict guidelines on how social distancing measures are required to be in place for all businesses looking to reopen to ensure safe working environments with limited contact.
Social distance measures must be in place for all sectors including shops, offices, businesses, and public venues for them to re-open and be COVID safe.
Why? Well its simple, to reduce the spread of infection and save lives. The UK Government use a scientific method to track and analyse the infection rate, this is known as R.
R is the reproduction number and it is the average number of secondary people that is likely to be infected by one person who has coronavirus.
Whilst R is not an exact number, it gives a calculated estimate so that the Government can make decisions on lifting lockdown restrictions; or implementing tighter ones.
An R number of 1 means that on average an infected person will infect one other person, meaning the total number of new infections is stable.
If R is 2, on average, each infected person has the potential to infect two more people meaning the virus is growing.
The UK Government look to keep the R rate below 1 to continue easing lockdown restrictions.
Social distancing screens are physical barriers that are typically manufactured from Perspex, acrylic or glass and are designed to provide protection, minimise contact, and restrict the airborne transmission of Coronavirus and other potential pathogens.
The World Health Organisation advises to: "Use physical barriers to reduce exposure to the COVID-19 virus, such as glass or plastic windows."
Whilst this is advice to all business where people work in close proximity, it is absolutely essential in certain locations where it is extremely difficult to enforce the 1m+ rule and stop human contact altogether. These are locations such as payment points, checkouts, or reception areas.
Sneeze guard screens are an effective solution to minimise the risk of catching Coronavirus when used alongside other methods such as avoiding touching your face, frequent hand washing, alcohol-based hand sanitiser.

Whether your business has been open during lockdown, or your business is looking to reopen, one thing will be the same for everyone – safe social distancing measures are necessary.
Many businesses have adapted well to the current climate by changing working hours, offering staggered or flexible shift patterns, remote working, job sharing, or working with limited skeleton staff.
Not every premises will have the infrastructure or resources to distance desks or create a one-way system to prevent a cross over of staff and customers, so what else can you do to implement social distancing?
Perspex screens help safely integrate social distancing and minimise the risk of infection – they can help to save lives whilst allowing your business to restart and operate safely.
