Why are protective COVID-19 screens so important?

COVID-19 protective safety screens help block the transmissions of respiratory droplets that are released when speaking, sneezing and coughing. This is why they are so important as the COVID-19 is believed to be transmitted from person to person by these droplets. They also give people peace of mind and confidence in that they can begin to live, work and enjoy post-lockdown life in a safe protective manner. It is now more than ever so important that these screens are used across all business. This is because people are engaging with each other on a more social and public level. In order to stop any potential spread of COVID-19, safety screens being put into places such as shops, restaurants and offices give that extra protective hygienic layer to people’s daily lives.  

What types of COVID-19 safety screens are there?

There are many different types of COVID-19 safety screens, these include plastic and glass screens with different functionalities for different sectors, such as cut-out screens for shops or simpler free-standing screens for offices. We recommend glass screens as they are more durable and hygienic. They are also more ascetically pleasing for those shops and restaurants that need that extra quality and craftsmanship for their business. At Roman we manufacture and design safety screens, we have and can also cater to those that need specialist bespoke designs.
