What are the current school reopening guidelines?

As the Fall approaches and communities throughout the United States start to open schools again, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has defined its considerations to guide the safe reopening of schools 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 children remain at least 6 feet apart in lines and at other times.

Where can I use a Social Shield?

Social Shield social distancing barriers can be used in classrooms, offices, gymnasiums, libraries, walkways/thoroughfares, and more! They can also be used both indoors and outdoors.

Are Social Shields Portable?

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

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 or desk 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.
