The safety product industry has changed drastically with the advent of COVID-19 in early 2020. Plastic fabricators and manufacturing shops across the U.S. have joined as part of a national workforce to bring new safety products and furnishings to industries of all types, from grocery stores to school lunchrooms to casino gaming floors. Personal protective barriers and safety shields are being built from Plexiglass and other acrylic materials to fill the need for keeping our workforce and public places safe from virus spread.
The retail and workforce environment is changing daily as we adjust to the post-COVID world. Most business are not able to re-open until they have made the appropriate safety changes as outlined by the CDC and by experts in managing contagious pathogens to protect workers, customers and students. Our capabilities allow us to create sturdy and easy-to-install safety barriers and shields that can be used in a variety of settings.

One of our valued food industry customers was looking for a personal acrylic barrier that could act as a safety shield during the checkout process in grocery checkout lanes across the Chicago area.
With recent mandates around the United States calling for "social distancing", in response to the COVID-19 crisis, and the call for individual safety precautions, this project called for quick action and fabrication.
The team at Creative Concepts Fabrication was able to produce and meet the installation deadline for over one-thousand Safety Shields, while staying within budget guidelines. These cashier safety barriers were the first design produced; other options are being made available. These additional safety shield options will include:
Cashier Safety Shields are produced from clear Plexiglass, an extruded acrylic sheet material that is versatile, strong and clearer than glass.
It is recommended from a durability standpoint, that these safety barriers are constructed in 3/8" thickness, however other thicknesses are available for maintaining personal safety of cashiers and customers.
Plexiglass is more durable than glass, but is only one-half the weight, making it ideal for commercial safety installations. Contact us now for a FREE quote or more info.

During the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, an urgent request came in to Creative Concepts Fabrication for the fabrication of Plexiglass “Aerosol Boxes” to aid in shielding physicians and nurses when working with critical patients who need intubation during care.
The inquiry into these healthcare safety barriers was made on behalf of ICU staff at a local hospital. It was an urgent request as staff nurses were starting to be wary of performing intubations and becoming exposed to the virus.
To speed up production and get a first order of Aerosol Boxes into the hospital as quickly as possible, Creative Concepts used a design created by Taiwanese physician, Lai Hsein-yung.
Generously, Lai has freely shared his drawings and design for this safety barrier online, in order to help his fellow healthcare providers across the globe.
Produced entirely from Plexiglass acrylic, the Aerosole Box is built to cover a critical patient's head during endotracheal intubation.
The box has two holes on one side through which healthcare workers can insert their hands to perform the medical procedure, while remaining shielded from any respiratory droplets from the patient.
