Why Use Acrylic for Covid-19 Protective Shields?

Over the past few months, COVID-19 has remained a constant issue in Australia. Although there was recently some reprieve, with a long streak of zero cases, a few minor outbreaks have re-emerged. These cases reinforce the need for proactive action from business such as installing Covid-19 protective shields to protect their staff and customers. It doesn’t look like COVID will be fully gone for some time, so preventative measures like acrylic sheets allow businesses to operate and survive in the interim.

Acrylic sheets have some properties which make them very desirable for this purpose. They are used generally as a replacement for glass. Acrylic weighs substantially less than glass (usually less than half) and it has up to 20 times more impact resistance. These make it much more durable, especially out in the open as Covid-19 protective shields where impacts or bumps are likely in regular use. Along with added strength, if the sheets manage to break, unlike glass they will not form shards but thick, blunt edged pieces. This is a great added safety as Covid-19 protective shields are generally in close proximity to faces where shards could cause serious injury to staff or customers.

It isn’t just its in-service properties that make acrylic sheets a desirable alternative to glass. They are also much easier to manufacture and product rapidly on mass. Glass must be molded and extruded for forming but acrylic can be produced as sheets, laser cut to size and easily bent or formed on site to fit the exact required shape. This is much easier for the scale required for Covid-19 protective shields. In the event that screens become contaminated, they are easily cleaned but are not chemical safe and damage can be easily polished out.
