The 9 Best Sneeze Guards

After my article about office partitions, I thought it would also be important to write about sneeze guards also.

In these extreme times, it’s important to pay attention to office safety.

To protect yourself (and your employees) from all kinds of germs and viruses, you should consider installing a sneeze guard.

To save you time and effort, I’ve researched the best sneeze guards to consider installing at your office.

Foldable 3 Panel Plexiglass Sneeze Guard

Foldable 3 Panel Plexiglass Sneeze Guard

  • Triple panel with transaction opening
  • Made from high-grade acrylic
  • Made in Southern California
  • 2 stabilizing clips included

If you need a quality product to shield you in your work environment, we suggest looking into this 3 panel sneeze guard that is made in and ships from Southern California.

The panels feature high-grade acrylic, which seems to be durable. The front panel is 42’’ tall and 30’’ wide, and the side panels go 12.75’’ deep, which will be enough for shallow desks.

The side panels are attached to the front one, and they can be adjusted to any angle you’d like. To add an extra layer of security, you get 2 extra clips that stabilize the entire guard.

You can still move the panels after you install the clips, and if you need to purchase more, 12 additional clips will cost you around $20.

Portability

If you travel a lot and want to take this guard with you, it is possible, but take into consideration its weight (21 lbs), and the possible damage it would suffer by being constantly moved around.

In our view, this guard would be best if used for reception desks. It’s even designed with a cut-out for easier transactions with customers.

The thickness of the panel is 0.18’’, and people that bought this sneeze guard say it is well designed (not flimsy) and looks very professional.

What We Like

  • Great for tall people
  • Well-made hinges
  • Mounts securely with clips
  • You can clean it with alcohol

What We Don’t Like

  • Too heavy to move around daily

Stand Steady Clear Desktop Panel

Stand Steady Clear Desktop Panel

  • Made with commercial-grade acrylic
  • Secures with desk clamps
  • Suitable for 0.23’’ – 1.77’’ thick desks

If you need a high-quality sneeze guard to protect your work desk, the Stand Steady model will do the trick. Its panels are made from high-quality acrylic, suitable for high-traffic areas.

To secure the panel to the desk you’ll get clamps that work with desks that are 0.23’’ to 1.77’’ thick.

These clamps are very practical because you won’t need to drill holes in your desk. Just make sure you don’t lose them because the company that makes this product doesn’t sell parts.

Portability

If you need to relocate the panel, you simply unscrew the clamps, move them to the new desired area and screw them back on.

Just like the previous model, it would be possible to take the panel with you if you travel but its weight is 28 lbs, so keep that in mind.

You can choose a clear panel or go for the frosted option. Every panel made by this company is 30’’ tall. The only difference is their width. Also, the thickness of each panel is 0.19’’.

Assembly is easy and it takes minutes to set up. The clamps are also adjustable to fit your desk better. If you run into any kind of an issue, this company is known for its great customer service.

This floor standing divider is made with 0.25’’ thick acrylic. Its height is 55’’ and it is 30’’ wide, which makes it perfect for waiting rooms, retail shops, checkouts, etc.

In other words, any place people need to sit down and wait would be a good place for this protective barrier. If you’re using it in the office you’ll need to move it a bit to avoid reflection.

This is a freestanding panel that features 2 base stands on each side to hold it up.

If you need something for people that are standing, it won’t do the trick because it is only 4’5’’ tall, but you could elevate it onto a desk for sure.

Shatterproof

This is the thickest sneeze guard on our list and it was made to be impact and shatterproof.

It is super easy to move if you need to, just pick it up and transfer it to the desired location.

If you’re looking for a safe, fire-rated sneeze guard to protect your employees, we suggest looking into this model. It’s made from acrylic plexiglass and features 3 panels that protect you from germs.

It doesn’t fold for storage, so if you need to travel you would have to take it apart. Together with the panels, you get 2 fixers and a 3M double-sided tape to use under the stands for extra stability.

One important thing we noticed is that most people go for the smaller sizes and regret it later. For employees, teachers, and students to be fully protected you would need the 30’’ x 30’’ size.

If you happen to get the wrong size, or your product arrives damaged, the manufacturer is responsive for replacements, or custom sizing.

Assembly

Assembling this one is easy, you’ll just have to remove the protective film on both sides, then put the front and the 2 sides together and set it up straight.

Protective Sneeze Guard for Counter & Desk

Also, this is a durable guard that outperforms most models on the market, but you’ll need to wait a bit longer (2 weeks) for shipping since it arrives from China.
