Freestanding Barriers- Covid 19

Introduction: Freestanding Barriers- Covid 19

Many small businesses lack the protective equipment that has become commonplace in many of the larger grocery stores and retailers.

We have created a CNC cut base that can accommodate a wide range of plexiglass or glass panel thicknesses and overall sizes that can be utilized as a freestanding countertop barrier.

Note: All plexiglass edges should be sanded smooth and all glass panels would be accompanied by a frame to prevent injury.

We will be adding a more detailed outline of the fabrication method over the next few days but for now, we have uploaded 3D files for review.

    Question 2 years ago on Step 1

    Hello. My name is Jason Lee from Korean Village Restaurant and I just saw the news story on your amazing initiative of helping local businesses. I was wondering how I can make a request for a freestanding barrier. We are still open for takeout and delivery and we do get a number of people coming in each day. If someone could email me at it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
