Shielding Today’s New Normal

To help shield employees in offices, supermarkets, reception desks, and other public places against the spread of COVID-19 or other bacteria, dividers made of plexiglass or acrylic glass are currently widely used. SCHOTT now offers a robust and durable alternative for the US market.

The SCHOTT® Contact Shield product family consists of high quality tempered glasses that are scratch-resistant and easy to clean. These glass solutions remain highly transparent even after long periods of use. Thanks to the special frame and hinge technology, the products can be used as a free-standing solution and can be easily set up in almost any required location. The 3-part glass design with adjustable hinges angles from 30° to 70° allowing the product to be flexible. Compared to one-piece guards, the 3-panel design offers shielding from several directions.

In addition to the standard products manufactured at SCHOTT Gemtron in NAFTA, SCHOTT also offers customized solutions. Whether it’s the size, the number of glass panels, frame color, and material, or an addition of a printed logo – individual customer requests can be realized.
