What is a Social Distancing Screen?

A social distancing screen is a physical barrier or screen, usually made of a clear material such as acrylic/perspex or glass, erected at or around areas where face to face contact or physical contact is unavoidable. They act as an enhancement to the use of PPE but are not a replacement or effective mitigation tool on their own. These screens are used in areas such as tills, office desks, reception counters, serving counters etc. For example. the UK Government guidance for offices and contact centres suggests that “…where it is not possible to move workstations further apart, using screens to separate people from each other.”

How do Social Distancing Screens work?

With the ongoing crisis of Coronavirus and COVID-19, protection of staff and patrons is paramount to keeping them safe and well. It is also the responsibility of all to do what they can to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus while operating businesses and serving customers. According to WHO, Coronavirus mainly spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. A Social Distancing Screen is fitted as either a free-standing screen or as a countertop or desk screen, serving as a physical barrier between staff or product and customers reducing your staffs' and customers' exposure to potential infection.

Social Distancing Screen FAQs


According to the Johns Hopkins University, Social Distancing is: “a public health practice that aims to prevent sick people from coming in close contact with healthy people in order to reduce opportunities for disease transmission. It can include large-scale measures like cancelling group events or closing public spaces, as well as individual decisions such as avoiding crowds.”

It is needed to: “slow down the outbreak in order to reduce the chance of infection among high-risk populations and to reduce the burden on health care systems and workers. Experts describe this as “flattening the curve,” which generally refers to the potential success of social distancing measures to prevent surges in illness that could overwhelm health care systems.”

Social Distancing Screens assist businesses and other facilities to prevent close contact between persons to assist in ‘flattening the curve’.

A social distancing screen is a physical barrier or screen, usually made of a clear material such as acrylic/perspex or glass, erected at or around areas where face to face contact or physical contact is unavoidable. Sneeze Guards and Sneeze Screens are just other terms for a social distancing screen.

Rhino Sneeze Screens are made from 5mm 100% Acrylic Perspex. Perspex is an easy to clean material that is strong and durable. 100% Acrylic is the most optically clear material available for the manufacture of social distancing screens.

Glass is not as optically clear as 100% Acrylic Perspex™. This makes Perspex™ the ideal material for social distancing sneeze screens. 100% Acrylic is also lighter than glass and less susceptible to breakage and damage in transport.

We at Rhino can understand that it is sometimes difficult to decide which screen is the best for your particular application. That is why we have created the Social Distancing Screen Selection Tool above. If you are still in need of help and need assistance choosing the correct screen, please feel free to contact our helpful team on 01280 840293 or email us at [email protected].

COVID-19 is spread via microdroplets in the air when an infected person sneezes or coughs. These persons may be symptomatic or asymptomatic. Someone may seem healthy and still be able to spread the virus via a sneeze or cough. In addition to the latest UK Government Guidance on HANDS, FACE, SPACE, social distancing sneeze screens are an effective solution to minimise the risk contracting Coronavirus. Social Distancing Screens are installed in most public places, such as supermarkets, restaurants, offices, shops, schools, salons etc. to reduce the risk of viral transmission.

Sneeze Screen Cleaning and Aftercare
We advise you clean your Acrylic Screens carefully with dedicated cloths. The best cleaning fluid to use is a very weak soapy water solution. Anything other than this such as window cleaning solutions could lead to very light scratching or abrasion. Use soft microfiber towels or dedicated glass cleaning cloths. Remove all brand labels from the cloths or keep these away from the surface 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. Using the first damp cloth wipe the surface thoroughly. As the cleaner dries, take the second dry towel and lightly buff the surface to remove any streaks and smears. If you wipe your sneeze screens properly, they will maintain their clarity and give you a long service life. Any further questions please contact our Customer Service Team on 01280 840293 or [email protected] .
