Machining Shields and Barriers for Customer Safety

Most of the local grocery stores have now implemented safeguards near their cash registers to protect workers and customers from spreading COVID-19. These plexiglass shields are designed to help workers and customers keep a safe distance from one another and to help limit the spread of the virus.

As our country begins to go back to work, plexiglass barriers are becoming an essential part of creating safer working environments and we will see them used in more environments such as retail stores, offices, drive-thru restaurants, casinos, public transportation, medical offices, etc.
