Promoting employee health by creating a COVID-19 safe workplace is the mission of GermBlock cough and sneeze shields from Rockford Systems. Now that same protection is available in a portable design thanks to GermBlock caster kits.
GermBlock shields provide a physical barrier to help prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, as well other harmful germs, liquid splashes and flying debris, by blocking airborne droplets. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that employers should have a COVID-19 health and safety plan to protect employees that includes placing barriers and partitions (cough and sneeze guards) between people working in close proximity.
Available in 36-inch and 48-inch width versions, castor kits attach to GermBlock floor-mount shields so they can be moved to assist with social distancing and germ control. Attaching the casters to a GermBlock shield not only permits movement with a 360-degree turning radius, it also provides more stability to the shield due to a lower center of gravity. The food-grade, polyurethane casters are 4-inches in diameter, with two wheels being fixed and two wheels that swivel 360 degrees. Foot-controlled brakes lock the swivel wheels’ motion and rotations into place for safe use.
Rockford Systems caster kits are manufactured with 1/4-inch 304 stainless steel. As with all GermBlock products, a standard version is available, as well as a clean-room model that meets the USDA and FDA standards for clean-room compatibility.
All GermBlock cough and sneeze shields and caster kits are stainless steel, easy to clean, made in the U.S., feature a 1-year warranty, and can be fulfilled in 2-3 weeks. Custom sizes are available to meet any application.
