Sneeze Guard

With customers and employees coming into contact each and every, preventing the spread of germs is a pressing concern for many businesses. A protective sneeze guard acts as a physical barrier to germs spread by sneezing and coughing, while fever signs encourage people to observe caution and not enter spaces when sick. Brooklyn Signs provides both custom sneeze guards and safety signage to help keep people at your business healthy.

PPE: Sneeze Guards by Brooklyn Signs

Sneeze guards have been used in high risk spaces like airports, movie theaters, and restaurants for years to help prevent the spread of germs and disease. With the need, and sometimes requirement, for additional safety precautions during the COVIDd-19 pandemic, sneeze shields are good for supermarkets, retail stores, offices, and anywhere that customers and employees are frequently in contact.

Brooklyn Signs has worked with dozens of companies in NYC to fabricate and install sneeze guards. Using high grade acrylic and modern CNC routers, we can design sneeze guards to fit spaces of any size. As a full service sign printer, we also have cough signs available to further promote health and safety in your business. Give us a call today at (718) 252-7575 to get started.

Examples of Our Sneeze Guards

What Are Sneeze Guards?

Sneeze guards are made from ½ inch acrylic sheets. Acrylic is a nonporous, rigid plastic that is fully transparent, allowing for people to see and communicate through the barrier. The acrylic acts as a physical barrier to prevent respiratory droplets created by sneezing, coughing, and speaking from passing through.

To further customize sneeze guards, the following options are available:
  • Custom Sizes – For custom sizes and shapes, the acrylic sheets can be precision cut using a CNC router. This method produces smooth, finished edges.
  • Corner Finishing – If a sneeze guard will not be frame mounted, rounded corners remove sharp areas that could otherwise cause injuries.
  • Pass Through Holes – Sneeze guards can have a 4” x 6” pass through hole cut into the acrylic to allow money or goods to be handed through.
Because of their lightweight and durability, sneeze guards are generally easy to install with limited handyman work. For installation, we can design signs with the following features:
  • Free Standing – Smaller sneeze guards use base pieces to keep them upright. These shields work well for personal use on desks and their size makes them easy to transport.
  • Mounted – Guards can have holes placed at intervals so they can be mounted with a drill without risk of cracking the acrylic. A CNC router is used to create small holes where needed in each sneeze guard.
  • Hanging – In locations where it is not possible to mount the guard to a wall, holes can be added to the top so the sneeze guard can be hung from the ceiling.
In addition to sneeze guards, we also offer cough signs and fever signs. These posters typically remind people to Cover Your Cough or Sneeze into Your Elbow to help prevent the spread of germs. Cough signs can be printed with custom messaging on paper posters, foam board, acrylic, or metal depending on where they will be used.

Benefits of Sneeze Guards

When it comes to preventing the spread of germs, many businesses rely on sneeze guards to protect employees and customers.

Safe and Hygienic

A sneeze guard physically prevents harmful particles, like those spread by sneezing or coughing, from passing through. The acrylic itself is also easy to clean with general common antibacterial cleaning supplies.


Depending on the specific space and purpose, acrylic sneeze guards can be designed to meet size requirements and with specific features.


As a type of plastic, acrylic is long-lasting and will maintain its appearance for years with proper care. Sneeze guards are scratch and shatter resistant and waterproof.

Helps Customers/Employees Feel Safe

Not only do sneeze guards help with safety, they also help both customers and employees feel safer, so that they are more comfortable in your store now and in the future.

Some Of Our Satisfied Clients and Their Reviews About Brooklyn Signs

Frequently Asked Questions and Resources

What is Your Return Policy?

Your satisfaction is our goal. While we cannot offer returns on most custom products, we will accept any returns when it is our error, and we have created something outside of scope. Any time we have made an error, we will accept a return and discuss the idea of creating a new sign in its place. If you ever receive a broken sign, or you find that a sign isn’t working properly (such as a neon sign), please let us know right away.

What Signs Are Best For Indoors?

All signs last longer when they are inside of your property. Some signs, like neon signs and foam board signs, are almost exclusively meant for indoors. However, metal signs, vinyl signs, aluminum signs, wood signs, and nearly all the signs listed above for outdoor signs also work great as indoor signs depending on your needs.

What Signs Are Best For Outdoors?

There are many different signs that are durable enough for the outdoors. Some of the best materials include wooden signs, aluminum signs, plastic signs, and PVC signs. Banners and vinyl signs can also be great outdoors, but may not be meant to provide you with a permanent sign solution as the weather can cause staining and wrinkles. Many types of lighted signs, such as channel letters and light box signs, are meant for the outdoors.

What Are “Wraps” and How Do They Work?

Wraps are pieces of thin, self-adhesive vinyl. They fit on flat surfaces, such as metal and glass. They can come in black and white or full color, and they pop from whatever surface they are affixed to. We create primarily vehicle wraps and window wraps, branding your property, cars, and trucks and making sure that they provide you with a rolling advertisement that is designed to last.

How Can I Care For My Signs So They Last Longer?

Every sign has its own unique needs. Small metal signs need only be wiped down when it is dusty, and can withstand heavy cleaners. Banners can only be cleaned with gentle soap and water, and can only be rolled up – never folded – or they will have permanent creases and possibly damage the lettering. It is best to ask us after you order your sign, and we’ll gladly give you the information you need to continue to care for your sign.

What Are Sign Rentals?

Creating a custom sign takes time and effort. But not everyone needs a custom sign.
