Rockford Systems GermBlock Shields Offer Protection Against Highly Transmissible Delta COVID-19 Variant

ROCKFORD, IL, AUGUST 9, 2021 — Restaurants, businesses and schools are at risk of losing hard-won gains in fighting COVID-19 as the highly transmissible Delta variant spreads.

With the alarming number of new cases, now is not the time for any organization to lower its guard. Maintaining social distancing is essential as Delta can jump from one person to another in a matter of seconds, making high-quality protective barriers such as Rockford Systems GermBlock shields, more important than ever.


Rockford Systems GermBlock shields provide a transparent barrier between people when they are face-to-face to prevent the spread of respiratory droplets that can carry the virus. Unlike flimsy plastic barriers that easily chip and break, GermBlock shields are constructed of heavy-duty clear 3/16″ polycarbonate and 16-gauge 304 stainless steel ¾” framing with full penetration welds, so they won’t be damaged by everyday usage, accidents or vandalism. In addition, the stainless-steel frame allows the shields to be washed down and sterilized per the CDC’s recommendation for frequent cleaning.


Economical and space-saving, Rockford Systems GermBlock shields are available in three standard designs: floor standing shield, tabletop shield, and tabletop with extended leg shield. All shields are available with optional caster wheels that not only allow for effortless transportation from site to site, but also provide more stability to the shield due to a lower center of gravity. Slots can be cut into the shields to allow easier exchange of money and merchandise in retail outlets.


Rockford Systems brings decades of experience into the design, development, production and fulfillment of its “Made In America” GermBlock Cough and Sneeze Shields.
