As protocol and recommendations have changed surrounding the Coronavirus, we have received numerous calls regarding clear plastic dividers / barriers to protect employees. We wanted to take a few minutes to answer some of the frequently asked questions regarding materials and our capabilities.
As a family owned company, we fully understand the need to stay open while still protecting employees. In an effort to help other businesses and healthcare facilities do the same, we will be prioritizing any orders that will be used to create a safe work environment and keep businesses operating. We will push them to the top of our production schedule to get them installed as soon as possible.

What material do you recommend?
For indoor use around food and employees, we recommend acrylic (plexiglass) or polycarbonate. The materials are clear, can easily be wiped down, and offers an effective barrier while talking to customers. It’s a great way to protect cashiers, clerks, and tellers while remaining open to the public.
For outdoor use as temporary / permanent shelters, we recommend our multiwall polycarbonate (twinwall). The material allows natural light in and protects from the elements. Plus, it creates a more comfortable environment with its excellent thermal insulation and UV protection. It has a Class A fire rating to meet building codes and can easily be wiped down.
I heard that Coronavirus could live on plastic for several days. What are you doing to limit the risk?
We have limited the number of people that come in contact with the material. When our plastic is delivered, it is quarantined to insure it does not spread the virus. Each one of our locations has implemented a cleaning and disinfection schedule according to CDC guidelines and limited the areas open to the public.
