Keep restaurant patrons and staff safe.
Our social distancing solution is compliant, adaptable, and comes in a range of sizes to provide peace of mind to customers and staff.
Winter is Coming!
Reopening by creating outdoor spaces was a temporary fix. Plan ahead for when you’ll need to host customers indoors. Social Shield creates physical barriers to help you maximize capacity indoors while minimizing risk of spread.
Bar & Restaurant Reopening
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has defined its considerations to guide the safe reopening of bars and restaurants amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In this guidance, the CDC suggests the use of physical barriers, particularly in areas where it is difficult for individuals to remain at least 6 feet apart, and physical guides, such as tape on floors or sidewalks and signs on walls, to ensure that staff and patrons remain at least 6 feet apart in lines and at other times.
Regulations vary state to state. Outdoor seating is open but indoor seating is only available at a reduced capacity (between 25% – 50% on average). With Fall approaching, restaurant and bar owners will need a plan in place to bring customers indoors as the weather turns.
Adapt your restaurant to the new reality
At 72”-tall, Social Shield is designed to comply with state and local guidelines.
Portable & Lightweight
The largest Social Shield is only 30 pounds, allowing you to easily reconfigure your space.
Delivered Fully Assembled
Social Shield is delivered fully assembled and ready for use. We offer free delivery in the Northeast on all orders over 10 shields.
Maintain Sight Lines
The clear, durable acrylic shield won’t close off your space so it still feels large, open, and as close to ‘normal’ as possible.
Social Shield offers a stylish solution for your immediate social distancing needs, however, they can be repurposed and used in the long-term to section off areas for private events, designate areas in your space, display memos, and more.

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.
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 Table Top?
No. Social Shields are 72”-tall, self-standing barriers.
Is a self-standing barrier better than a table-top 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 a Social Shield 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 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.
