Producing Acrylic Screen for Supermarkets

This year has been a long one for many businesses, and a lot of business owners have struggled to keeps to doors open. As the COVID-19 situation eases in NSW, and Christmas approaches, it is important to re-open safety. Acrylic screens for supermarkets are a great way to do this. When Covid Screens produce protective shields for your business, we use highly specialized laser cutting equipment and plastic polishing technology.

When a business requires hygiene screens to be produced, the first step is to measure and assess the space and dimension requirements. The measurements are taken in a site investigation and then translated into a computer model of the screen. The model will then guide our state-of-the-art cutting machines to precisely form the acrylic screens for supermarkets.

Similar to other products, acrylic screens for supermarkets are best cut with laser cutting technology. As the name implies, laser cutting uses a high powered laser beam (light) focussed onto the surface to melt or vaporize the material. The material is then blown out of the cut by a focussed stream of gas. This produces highly accurate cuts to almost any dimensions or shape of hygiene screens. Finally, the cut hygiene screens are taken to be polished; this ensures that all surfaces and sides are fully transparent.

Acrylic Sneeze Guard – 3 Ways to Re-Open Business

As life slowly begins to return to normal and COVID-19 restrictions ease, remaining vigilant is vital to prevent another wave of infections. This can be done by installing an acrylic sneeze guard among other safety measures. Virus infections in New South Wales have continued to fall with only a single case last week. In Victoria, the infection rate is also beginning to drop, remaining in low two-figure values. Businesses are continuing to open and social interactions beginning to rise again, with this comes the need to ensure safety. Acrylic clear glass can be a way to retain normal business operations but it must be used with other measures.

There are some important precautions to take when beginning to return to normal activity:

  1. Wear a face mask – masks can be a big help in preventing the spread from people who are infected but yet to display symptoms. Wearing a mask can also protect the wearer from spreading infected droplets from sneezes and coughs.
  2. Install an acrylic sneeze guard – installing protective screens made from acrylic clear glass is another major way to prevent spread. They serve as physical barriers to transmission between staff and customers at many supermarkets and other stores. An acrylic sneeze guard on each interaction point along with other measures will help businesses keep their staff and customers safe from airborne viruses.
  3. Cleaning – strict cleaning regimes are more important than ever. Ensuring that all frequently touched surfaces are cleaned as often as possible is very important. Additionally, cleaning your acrylic sneeze guard must also be performed regularly to ensure that contaminants are removed and not spread.
