Counter Shields: The Advantages of Them

Counter Shields: The Advantages of Them

Keep employees and customers safe with counter shields.

Counter shields are one of the many workplace protection products that we offer. Counter shields are a common feature in the healthcare facilities, banks, and many other industries. These shields are especially helpful when it comes to reception areas. Now, fast forward to 2020, and we’re living amid a pandemic where counter shields will be the norms in offices and all commercial spaces. Today we’re going to go over the top three advantages of counter shields. We’ll also provide a list of some of the many workplace protection products. 

Protection Between Employees and Customers

These shields serve as a protective barrier between employees and customers. They prevent the spread of viruses through airborne contaminants such as droplets, sneezing, and other particles. Counter shields specifically help stop the spread of COVID-19 because they are easy to sanitize. You can change them between shifts or more often to maintain a sanitary environment. 

Social Distancing at Its Finest

Employees and customers won’t have to think about the six feet rule actively. Shields create an automatic barrier that will keep your employees, clients, patients, or customers safe. From a psychological perspective, shields also put people at ease. Walking into an establishment that cares about the health of its visitors speaks volumes. It shows a business’s commitment. Customers are highly likely to spend their time in a place that keeps in line with the CDC’s guidelines. Employees are more likely to feel safer about working for a place that cares about their health and wellbeing. 

Counter Shields Are User-Friendly

If you’re looking for an easy-to-install workplace protection product, then look no further. You can assemble counter shields on-site and mount them to velcro. What makes this so beneficial is that you can easily clean guards and switch them out as needed. Another way to assemble these shields is via screws if you want added durability and stability. This workplace protection product is perfect for any area such as reception desks, customer service desks, take-out, and pick-up locations, and more! You don’t necessarily have to work in an office to benefit from counter shields. Here is a list of other workplace protection products that we offer:
