The COVID-19 pandemic is causing businesses to take extra precautions for the well-being of employees and customers. Rockford Systems (Rockford, IL) is helping organizations protect employee health and safety by launching its new GermBlock line of cough and sneeze shields for industrial, commercial, clean room and retail settings.
GermBlock shields limit the spread of airborne droplets resulting from coughing, sneezing or speaking from reaching a nearby person, therefore helping to mitigate possible COVID-19 infection. Constructed of heavy-duty clear 3/16" polycarbonate and 16-gauge 304 stainless steel ¾" framing with full penetration welds, the shields are offered in table top, floor standing and extended-leg versions in popular sizes. To ensure shield stability, all shields include foot plates with gussets, designed to affix to countertops or floors with front and side mounting options.
For industrial settings such as factories, warehouses and assembly lines, GermBlock shields can be placed in between employees standing or sitting in close proximity at work stations.
