We’re all doing it at the moment, trying everything we can to protect ourselves and others from coronavirus. What active steps can you take to prevent infection with coronavirus as far as possible? In this blog, we give you six practical tips against the spread of Covid-19. Very relevant for retailers, pharmacists, drugstores and bakeries and also for people self-isolating at home who want to avoid contact with the delivery person.
Tip 1: Shield your counter or checkout with corona plexiglass
Supermarkets, pharmacies, greengrocers and doctors’ waiting rooms: these are all places where people come and go. Protect your employees and customers against infection with coronavirus by shielding your cash registers with plexiglass. In our range, you will find ready-made screens to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. We offer our transparent shielding in two sizes: 60 cm wide x 80 cm high and 120 wide x 80 cm high. It’s quick and easy to fix these screens to pedestals. Our acrylic hanging screens are very useful for supermarkets. Their main advantages of acrylic sheet are that it’s twice as light and 30 times as strong as standard glass. This type of plastic is also easy to clean and disinfect with alcohol or Burnus anti-static cleaner.
Tip 2: Corona-proof your office
Do you want to make your office safe against coronavirus? Our easy-to-assemble desk screens are an ideal solution. For example, a new addition to our range is a small desk screen (85 cm wide x 66.5 cm high) to place on the side of a desk or table. Useful, for example, for creating a partition between 2 adjacent desks. Prefer a desk screen on the longer side? That’s also possible! With a large desk screen (148 cm wide x 66.5 cm high), you can instantly create a sturdy perspex partition between 2 opposite desks. A monitor screen is another popular option.
Tip 3: Using plastic screens in the catering industry
Perspex or plexiglass can also be used in the catering industry to protect catering staff and customers against COVID-19. This is why we have developed a perspex screen on a base. Ideal as a partition between tables/chairs in catering establishments, waiting rooms and school canteens. Another advantage: a perspex screen on a pedestal base is space-saving, so you don’t have to alter the arrangement of the tables.
Tip 4: Make a DIY corona screen
Would you rather make a customised corona screen yourself? Naturally, that’s also possible. In our blog DIY: Five ideas for making your own plastic protective screen, you’ll find step by step instructions on how to do this. Order the acrylic sheet in the size you want and we’ll cut it to size for you free of charge.
Tip 5: Make a parcel drop box from HPL
Now that many people are having to work from home and probably have their groceries delivered more often, this outdoor parcel box made from HPL is highly recommended. HPL sheet material is very suitable for the purpose because it retains almost no dirt, making it the perfect choice for food deliveries. If you want to avoid physical contact with your delivery person to prevent the spread of corona, request them to place the order in the HPL package box. In the DIY: Parcel drop box, we explain how to make it yourself. An ideal activity you can do in the garden now that most events have been shut down. And if the corona misery is over soon? You can still use this functional storage box as an outdoor toy box or as a storage box for your garden cushions.
Tip 6: Use HPL panels for a more hygienic environment
Because hygiene is now more important than ever, we recommend that you cover counters and counters with HPL sheets. As indicated above, HPL does not retain dirt, making it a very suitable material for hygienic environments such as hospitals, pharmacies and schools.
Ordering hygienic materials

HPL is deservedly very popular in environments where hygiene is key, such as the food industry and in hospitals and laboratories.
