ACHOO® Sneeze Guard Screens
ACHOO® Perspex Screens are an exclusive range of Sneeze Guard, Sneeze Screens and protective screen solutions developed and manufactured for XL Displays in response to COVID-19.
Our range of XL Screens offer multiple solutions to get your business and office re-opened as safely as possible, whilst offering additional protection in conjunction with social distancing and hygiene procedures.
The 'new normal', following the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020, means that Perspex screens, Sneeze Guard and Sneeze Screens are an essential tool to help mitigate the spread of infection. In conjunction with a regimented hygiene and cleaning schedule, social distancing measures, plastic screens can be an effective physical barrier against Coronavirus. Viral Infection is spread via micro droplets in the air when an infected person sneezes or coughs. Plastic Screens and windows are recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO), as part of a program to minimise infection and their use is supported by the UK Government.
The ACHOO® Perspex screen range has been developed by XL Displays to offer a more premium range of protective screens and clear glass acrylic dividers that have wipeable, easy to clean surfaces matches with a stylish, modern design.
6mm thick clear glass is used throughout the range and is matched with aluminium frames and feet details to suit any modern office decor or business that wants to project a lasting impression to customers.
You can buy cheaper Sneeze Screens. The internet is awash with low cost, low-quality solutions from the far-east. Some are good but it is a minefield to navigate the good from the bad. It seems every company now has screens to sell you. However, XL Displays was one of the first companies to manufacturer and retail protective screens and we have used many months of experience and customer feedback to bring you the range of ACHOO® Screens.
The ACHOO® range of Perspex screens have been designed in the UK and are 100% manufactured in the UK, using only the highest quality materials, custom aluminium profiles, stability feet, and fittings. Aluminium is an ideal framing material as it is lightweight, easy to clean and is non-porous.
Screen Dividers alongside a sensible and effective layout in an office help to integrate social distancing and enable your business to function with a reduced risk of spread of infection. In addition, they can reassure staff and customers that you take their health and safety seriously.
Select from our range of Perspex desk screens, freestanding partitions, counter top and reception screen, mobile room dividers and linkable office screens. ACHOO® protective screens give you functionality and modern design throughout the current pandemic and will last throughout COVID-19 and beyond.

'Achoo' is a synonym of 'sneeze'. Achoo is photic sneeze reflex, medically known as: ‘Autosomal Compelling Helio-Ophthalmic Outburst’, which is abbreviated to ‘ACHOO’.
'Achoo Screen' is semantically similar to the term 'Sneeze Screen' and is a brand trademark of XL Displays Ltd for a range of Protective Screens, Sneeze Screens, Sneeze Guard, glass screens and hygiene solutions, launched in May 2020 in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Due to it’s now common use in the English language, ’Sneeze Screens’ is a descriptor for a screen manufactured from either Perspex, acrylic, plastic material or glass that is designed to protect people from airborne transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Screens can be either office desk mounted, free standing, attached to a counter or reception desk, or be on castor wheels so they are mobile and moveable.
Barrier screens are essential for when strict social distancing is not possible. The World Health Organisation advises to: "Use physical barriers to reduce exposure to the COVID-19 virus, such as glass or plastic windows."
Many of our models of protective screens are manufactured with genuine Perspex®, sourced for the UK. These models will be designated as such. Other models of ACHOO® Screens are manufactured with acrylic or with toughened safety glass sourced from either the UK or Europe. All manufacturing is done in either the UK.
Select models in our range of ACHOO® Screens can be optioned with thermally toughened Safety Glass, which is impact tested to British Standard: BS 6206: 1981 - Class A. We source our glass from Pilkington® and Saint-Gobain®.
Perspex® Screens and Sneeze Guards do not kill Coronovirus (COVID-19). Screens can only form a physical barrier between people in situations where correct social distancing is harder to enforce. By forming a barrier shield, the surface of the screen stops direct airborne viruses from spreading onto another person in a situation where any germs have a direct trajectory. For example, during sneezing, coughing, singing etc.
ACHOO® Screens should be used in conjunction with social distancing guidelines, hand washing and hygiene, facemasks and regular sanitisation of areas. With correct procedures in place, Screens can help mitigate the potential for COVID-19 infection to spread.
COVID-19 is spread via micro droplets in the air from infected people and Perspex® social distancing screens, such as the ACHOO® Screens, may stop the likelihood of the virus covering your hands, face or contact surfaces.
Protective ACHOO® Screens can play an important part in a larger programme of safety measures if installed correctly and used in conjunction with thorough hygiene procedures and adhering to social distancing guidelines.
Our ACHOO® Screens are new and made to order specifically for you. We don't currently offer our screens for hire or lease. As ACHOO® Screens are demountable; Sneeze Screens can be easily removed from one office and readily reassembled or repositioned into another location, giving you a long service life and flexible longevity.
It is highly likely that COVID-19 will be around in 2021 and maybe longer. We will have to adapt how we work and operate businesses in the long term. ACHOO® Screens are high quality screens, built to last. They should last years if taken care of. When you add up the costs of hiring, purchasing good quality protective screens will save you money in the long term.
ACHOO® Screens are only available from XL Displays. ACHOO® is a registered trademark and the range of screens are exclusively available from XL Displays Ltd.

Perspex®, acrylic or plastic material can be more susceptible to scratching than glass so we advise you clean your Sneeze Screens carefully with soft, dedicated cloths.
Soft microfiber towels are ideal, or use a dedicated glass cleaning cloth, which is often a waffle weave construction. Remove all brand labels from the cloths as these can cause scratching and marring.
We recommend using two cloths, one to apply the cleaning product and the other cloth to buff to a smear free finish. Spray the cleaning solution into the first microfiber towel and wipe the surface of the screen. As the cleaner solution starts to dry, quickly buff the surface with the second, clean and dry cloth, to remove the cleaning residue and leave a streak free finish.
There are many glass cleaners available, which will work, and Isopropyl Alcohol is ideal for plastic and glass as it kills germs and viruses.
