Returning to the office after Covid-19: Sneeze Guards, floor stickers, signs and other social distancing aids

As businesses across the country prepare for the return of at least some of their workforce, what practical steps can we take to aid social distancing in the office?

We’ve put together a round-up of popular products designed to improve workplace safety not just in offices, but also schools, retail areas, factories and warehouses.

As well as protective screens from Sneeze Guards Direct, hand-washing signs, hand gel dispensers, hygiene posters and floor vinyls can all help to promote social distancing and stop the spread of coronavirus as lockdown eases.

Portable acrylic sneeze guards


Acrylic sneeze guards come supplied with portable wooden feet and are designed to stand on a desk or till point, providing a barrier for people on either side.

Manufactured from 6mm smooth acrylic and supplied ready to assemble with wooden supports, these sneeze guards are fully portable and are easy to move around as needed.

Social distancing signage


One of the easiest ways for companies to remind their customers and staff maintain enough distance from each other is to use signage. A range of window, outdoor and indoor signage is available to remind people of social distancing measures.

Hygiene posters and hand gel dispensers


Hand washing signs and posters can be placed in high touch point areas to remind your staff and customers about good hand hygiene at every opportunity.

Strategically placing hygiene posters next to hand gel dispensers by doorways and in areas of high footfall can help to keep people mindful of hand hygiene.

Floor stickers


Vinyl floor stickers can provide clear direction to help your staff and customers measure and keep their distance in high footfall areas.

All printed items such as floor stickers, posters and signs can be customised with your logo or colours. Northern Print Solutions has a wide range of Covid-19 printed products ready to customise for your business.

Toughened glass sneeze guards


Our toughened glass protective sneeze guards are available in a range of standard sizes, in either a 10mm or 6mm toughened glass, with optional sandblasting.

Choose from fixed clamps for permanent installations, or portable wooden feet for screens that can be relocated as and when needed.


The workplace of 2020 might look a little different to before, but with so many social distancing aids available, now is the time to make sure you’re ready for business.
