Plexiglass Sneeze Guards and Protective Barriers for Hair Salons, Barber Shops, and Nail Boutiques

Hair salons, barber shops and nail boutiques will be amongst many businesses that will slowly start reopening over the next months. Bearing in mind the nature of these businesses and given the current COVID health crisis, new hygiene and protection measures will need to be put in place to ensure the safety of everyone. Businesses will be either be required or recommended to use a physical barrier to protect employees and customers from unnecessary exposure to germs and the virus.

We created these plexiglass screen frames to help salon owners build safer spaces that both employees and customers can enjoy in a safer manner.

How do plexiglass screens work?

Plexiglass screens go by many names like cough guards, hygiene screens, sneeze guards, and more. But they all represent the same idea - creating a physical barrier between people to limit the exposure to germs and viruses.

In salons they can be used to partition sections of the shop floor and help maintain social distancing.

Here are a few areas you could use the cough guards for:

  • In waiting areas, to separate customers waiting at the same time
  • Reception areas and any counters in general
  • Between styling chairs or hairdresser sinks, to place a barrier between customers
  • On manicure tables, to separate the nail technician from the customer.


Cough screen designs for hair salons and barber shops

1. Freestanding partitioning screen

This design will help you minimize the interaction between customers who find themselves in the salon at the same time, either in the waiting areas or using the styling chair and sinks. Completely freestanding, the structure uses transparent plexiglass panels that will not obstruct any light coming into the area.

The separation screen can also be moved from one area to the other as it is not fixed to the floor.
