Covid-19 protective screen cost guide

If you’re a business owner and you’re considering installing perspex screens in order to keep your staff and customers safe, this guide is for you. We’ve put together this Covid-19 protective screen cost guide to talk you through the average prices of social distancing screens.

It’s undeniable that Covid-19 has had major impacts on businesses throughout the UK (and the rest of the world). As we slowly return to staff and customers being welcomed back to shops, offices, restaurants and bars, safety measures are paramount.

Whatever your business, it is extremely important that you follow the government guidelines and ensure that the safety measures you take are appropriate. And, in all cases, social distancing is the priority where at all possible.

940W x 740H £90
940W x 1030H £120
1220W x 1030H £160
940W x 1880H£230

Cost to install social distance acrylic screens

We spoke to one of our vetted Checkatrade members, Mr Misty, who’s been supporting businesses by installing Covid-19 protective screens to help with social distancing.

Although many screens are bespoke, the average Covid-19 protective screen cost ranges from £90 to £295 per screen.

The cost of the so-called ‘sneeze screens’ will depend on a number of factors, including:

Checkout sneeze screen

  • Size
  • Shape
  • Type and thickness of screen material
  • Complexity of the installation
  • Any prep work to make the area suitable for having a screen installed

Standard Covid-19 protective screens tend to be 2mm Acrylic Perspex mounted in a solid timber frame. However, you can opt for a 4mm toughened safety glass alternative – at a higher cost per screen.

Protecting your staff and/or customers with protective screens

Installing protective sneeze screens can provide an effective Covid-19 safety measure and give your employees and/or customers peace of mind. Local screen installation experts can assess the space that you’re dealing with and offer the most appropriate solution.

In a time when we’re all having to reassess how we interact with people on a daily basis, it’s important that organisations and businesses are considering what measures they need to take.

Clear perspex protective screens are proving to be effective at creating a barrier whilst simultaneously allowing a suitable level of interaction. Speak to your local Covid-19 protective screen experts for professional advice and accurate costs.

Which businesses can have Covid-19 screens installed?

Salon social distancing screens

Any business that needs to create a safe environment between staff and/or customers who will be in the same space.

Screens are already proving very popular for reception counters, offices, schools, hairdressers, beauticians, restaurants and bars (for food and drink ordering points).

Useful Covid-19 protective screen checklist
