ACHOO® Perspex Screens

Discover the solutions you need for your business to safely operate and help mitigate the spread of infection, utilising Perspex screens and protective barrier screens. In conjunction with a regimented hygiene and cleaning schedule, social distancing measures, plastic screens can be an effective physical barrier against Coronavirus. Viral Infection is spread via micro droplets in the air when an infected person sneezes or coughs. Plastic Screens and windows are recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO), as part of a programme to minimise infection and their use is supported by the UK Government.

ACHOO® Perspex screens and clear glass acrylic dividers benefit from being wipeable, easy to clean surfaces allowing each screen to be sanitised and kept clean for virus control and reduce the possibility of infection.

Protective screens are available in a wide range of styles including freestanding screens, desk mounted partition dividers, frameless dividers, counter top desk guards, office pods, mobile dividing screens on wheels and reception and counter screens.

ACHOO® 'Sneeze Guards' provide additional functionality to traditional fabric desk screens, adding additional protection to staff and employees though easier sanitisation and hygiene, whilst allowing light and visibility into workstations, creating see-through barriers that reduce isolation, encourage communication whilst offering staff and customers a degree of protection from airborne viral transmission.

Combined with a sensible and effective layout of an office, glass screens help to integrate social distancing and enable your business to function with a reduced risk of spread of infection. In addition, they can reassure staff and customers that you take their health and safety seriously, which may help create a happier and more productive workplace for staff and business for customer visiting your premises.

Our social distancing screens are manufactured in either the UK or Europe, using high quality materials, including genuine Perspex on some models, toughened safety glass, 5mm Acrylic plastic screen material and have an aluminium construction. Aluminium is an ideal framing material as it is lightweight, easy to clean and is non-porous. Our protective screens give you functionality and modern design throughout the current pandemic and will last throughout COVID-19 and beyond.

'Achoo' is a synonym of 'sneeze'. Achoo is photic sneeze reflex, medically known as: ‘Autosomal Compelling Helio-Ophthalmic Outburst’, which is abbreviated to ‘ACHOO’.

'Achoo Screen' is semantically similar to the term 'Sneeze Screen' and is a brand trademark of XL Displays Ltd for a range of Protection Screens, glass screens and hygiene solutions, manufactured and launched in May 2020 in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Due to it’s now common use in the English language, ’Sneeze Screens’ is a descriptor for a screen manufactured from either Perspex, acrylic, plastic material or glass that is designed to protect people from airborne transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Screens can be either desk mounted, free standing, attached to a counter or reception desk, hung from the ceiling or be on castor wheels so they are mobile and moveable.

Barrier screens are essential for when strict social distancing is not possible. The World Health Organisation advises to: "Use physical barriers to reduce exposure to the COVID-19 virus, such as glass or plastic windows."

Many of our models of protective screens are manufactured with genuine Perspex®, sourced for the UK. Other models of screens are manufactured with plastic acrylic or with toughened safety glass, sourced from either the UK or Europe. All manufacturing is done in either the UK or within Europe.

Select models in our range of Desk Screens and free standing screens can be optioned with thermally toughened Safety Glass, which is impact tested to British Standard: BS 6206: 1981 - Class A. We source our glass from Pilkington® and Saint-Gobain®.

Toughened glass, also known as Tempered Glass, is four to five times stronger than standard annealed float glass and if broken, disintegrates into small fragments with dulled edges that are less likely to cause injury. Glass has advantages over Acrylic / Perspex® as it is far more resilient to scratches, is easier to clean and keep sanitised and maintain a smear free finish. Safety glass is an ideal material for use in protective screens.

Coronavirus is spread via micro droplets in the air when an infected person sneezes, coughs, talks or has physical contact with other people. The risk of infection is greatly increased in indoor environments, during face-to-face encounters and where social distancing is not possible, or being ignored.

Screens made of plastic or glass are a physical barrier that may catch the micro droplets and reduce the risk of saliva droplets reaching another person. By creating a barrier, the possibility of the virus lingering on communal surfaces is greatly reduced as the areas are physically segregated, reducing the possibility of cross-contamination.

With regular hand washing, use of alcohol based hand sanitiser and the avoidance of touching your face; protective screens are an effective solution to minimise the risk of infection. Plastic screens are suitable for installation in most public places.

Nothing can be guaranteed to be 100% effective but plastic safety screens used for the protection of staff and employees in public venues are an effective way of creating a physical barrier and potentially reduce the risk and spread of airborne infections.

COVID-19 is spread via micro droplets in the air from infected people and social distancing screens may stop the likelihood of the virus covering your hands, face or contact surfaces.

Research has shown that people can carry the COVID-19 virus but show no symptoms or signs of illness. This is known as Asymptomatic. It is believed that the virus is at its most contagious at this stage, which is thought to last up to 5 days.

Protective Screens can play an important part in a larger programme of safety measures if installed correctly and used in conjunction with thorough hygiene procedures, wearing a face covering and adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Perspex®, acrylic or plastic material is more susceptible to scratching than tempered glass so we advise you clean your Sneeze Screens carefully with soft, dedicated cloths.

Soft microfiber towels are ideal, or use a dedicated glass cleaning cloth, which is often a waffle weave construction. Remove all brand labels from the cloths as these can cause scratching and marring.

We recommend using two cloths, one to apply the cleaning product and the other cloth to buff to a smear free finish. Spray the cleaning solution into the first microfiber towel and wipe the surface of the screen. As the cleaner solution starts to dry, quickly buff the surface with the second, clean and dry cloth, to remove the cleaning residue and leave a streak free finish.

There are many glass cleaners available, which will work, and Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) is ideal for plastic and glass as it kills germs and viruses.
