Who We Are

Social Shield was created by the owners of RAD Wood Products, a family-owned and operated business started in 1960 that manufactures laminated hardwood products ranging from butcher block table tops to truck flooring.

When the pandemic hit, we saw an opportunity to help fellow business owners reopen safely by using our manufacturing expertise to create high quality, portable and aesthetically pleasing social barriers.

Our design allows restaurants, bars, salons, retailers, schools, event spaces (and any other social gathering area you can think of) to reopen in compliance with local regulations and with confidence that they are keeping employees and patrons safe. The Social Shield will help increase capacity while giving customers peace of mind that they can maintain social distance between sectioned-off areas.

We’re proud to be made in the USA and born and raised out of a factory that once made military cots and has operated in support of the U.S. military for over 75 years.

FAQs

What are the current regulations?

State regulations and guidelines are changing every day. We’re working overtime to make sure we stay compliant and offer solutions that meet your needs. We recommend checking your state’s website to find the most up-to-date information.

Currently, many northeastern states including New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania are requiring that businesses erect physical barriers to ensure adequate social distancing. Regulations state that physical barriers of at least five feet in height should be erected if six feet of distance cannot be maintained between tables, desks or stations and in pedestrian thoroughfares and walkways.

To date, the basic, universal safety regulations include:

  • Social Distancing
    • All persons, including employees, customers, and vendors should remain at least six feet apart to the greatest extent possible, both inside and outside workplaces
    • Require face coverings or masks for all employees and customers 
    • Provide signage to encourage and educate on safe social distancing 
  • Cleaning & Disinfecting
    • Regular sanitization and disinfection of high touch areas, such as workstations, equipment, screens, barriers, dividers, doorknobs, restrooms throughout workplace
    • Disinfection of all common surfaces must take place at intervals appropriate to said workplace
  • Provide training for employees regarding the social distancing and hygiene protocols
  • Employees who are displaying COVID19-like symptoms do not report to work 

How big are Social Shields?

All Social Shields are free-standing at 72” (6’) tall. The plexiglass shield portion is 4’ in length and is available in four different widths: 3’, 4’, 5’, and 8’. The clear acrylic plexiglass is ⅛”-thick. 

  • All available product dimensions are as follows:
    • 6’ x 4’ x 3’
    • 6’ x 4’ x 4’
    • 6’ x 4’ x 5’
    • 6’ x 4’ x 8’

Do I need to assemble the Social Shield when it arrives?

No assembly needed! Social Shields are delivered fully assembled so you can get them set up and open your doors as quickly as possible.

How are Social Shields delivered?

Social Shields are delivered fully assembled. Flat rate shipping is $20 per unit or you can take advantage of free shipping with orders of 10 or more units.

Due to their size, our team will reach out directly to all customers with delivery options. Delivery of Social Shields is similar to delivering a piece of furniture: you will need to be present at the ship-to location to accept the delivery. Not to worry, our team is flexible and will coordinate a time that best suits your business.

Where can I use a Social Shield?

Social Shields are the perfect social distancing barrier for salons, restaurants, bars, retail stores, office spaces, schools, gyms, event venues and any other gathering location you can think of!

Are Social Shields Portable?

Yes. Social Shields are lightweight (max. 30 lbs), stable, and easy to move around to customize your space and responsibly maximize capacity.

Can Social Shields fit on a tabletop?

No. Social Shields are 72”-tall, self-standing barriers.

Is a self-standing barrier better than a tabletop barrier or sneeze guard?

Self-standing barriers provide more configuration flexibility and a more streamlined look and feel in your space. They don’t take up table space and have a larger surface area for greater protection. Additionally, there are more long-term use cases for a self standing barrier so you can feel confident in your investment.

What can I use Social Shields for?

The primary purpose of the Social Shield is to act as a social distance barrier, however, once they are no longer needed for social distancing, they can be used in a number of ways such as sectioning off for private events, creating a more intimate experience for customers, presentation boards, and more.

How is Social Shield different from other social barriers on the market?

We know that there are many protective workplace barriers on the market right now. However, many of these products are made from cheap, unattractive materials that take away from your aesthetic and customer experience. Social Shield is different. We offer a variety of finishes and provide a high-quality, durable and portable solution that your business can use for years.

Can Social Shields be used outdoors?

Yes! Social Shields are weatherproof and can be used both indoors and outdoors. The shields are lightweight (max. 30 lbs) and portable, making it easy to bring them in and out when opening/closing.
