Protective barriers might be one feature of the “new normal” (must always be in quotes) that sticks with us long after COVID-19 has been destroyed. If you agree, you may want something more attractive and higher quality than a random piece of plexiglass, like this new Cardinal SHIELD from HMI Cardinal, specially-made for sanitized retail settings.
HMI Cardinal is the largest fabricator of custom glass shower enclosures in the U.S., with a legacy that dates back to 1948. An expert in producing glass barriers, the company has pivoted its business model to fill this new need created by the COVID-19 crisis.
“Businesses of all kinds are looking for effective, economical, and operationally manageable ways to keep their customers and staff safe while maintaining the person-to-person interaction that can be so critical to business,” said Luis Diego Rodriguez, VP of sales and marketing. “By leveraging our economies of scale and our manufacturing and distribution capabilities across the country, Cardinal SHIELD is able to offer this solution in a rapidly changing market.”
Cardinal SHIELD barriers are a tempered clear glass that serves as a more durable and aesthetic alternative to traditional plexiglass barriers. All Cardinal SHIELD panels are coated with Cardinal C-10 Surface Protectant for an easy to clean, non-stick surface that repels grime, mineral build-up, and soap residue. The panels are also shatterproof and resistant to scratching.
Cardinal SHIELD barriers can be made-to-order in custom sizes and shapes. Specialty cutouts and custom configurations are available, and panels can be anchored horizontally or vertically as a space requires. The glass barriers also come complete with touch corners for peace of mind.
Mounting hardware for Cardinal SHIELD panels are offered in an array of metal finishes and those looking for branding opportunities can add Cardinal’s Satori digital in-glass printing to create custom logos, text, or graphic design elements to the glass.
