Our StauberBest Sneeze Guards are made with intimate customer interactions in mind. All of our made in the USA Sneeze Guards are generally ⅛” thick so that when people need to talk to one another, it doesn't feel as though there is a prison window between them. A Sneeze Guard that is too thick will be very expensive, increase your shipping cost, and is over kill for its function of blocking viral droplets. A Sneeze Guard thats too thin has no structural integrity. At StauberBest, we our panels are the perfect balance of both stability, affordability, and easy customer interactions.
