During these difficult times, ESP Window Tint Tinting and Graphics believes in stepping up and doing our part. From manufacturing sneeze guards to ensuring our customers have the social distancing signage they need to safely run their businesses, we are utilizing our resources to minimize the effects of the pandemic that we’re all collectively experiencing. We want our customers to know that we’re taking COVID-19 seriously. That’s why we decided to share some of the efforts we’re making in response to the pandemic. Plus, we have some great products to help you and your workers stay safe while keeping your business going.

Social Distancing Is Important

“Social distancing” is a new term with which we’ve all recently become familiar. It’s also a new way of life we’ve had to quickly adjust to in our daily lives and workplaces. For business owners who remain open and those preparing to reopen, it’s important to have social distancing measures in place to minimize person-to-person contact. The key is keeping people at least six feet away from each other.

Why is six feet the magic number? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), six feet is the distance that respiratory droplets can travel from a sick person when they sneeze or cough.

However, it may be necessary for some workers to get closer than six feet to do their jobs. In those cases, it’s vital that barriers like sneeze guards separate customers and employees and that employees are equipped with proper personal protective equipment (PPE). In response to this need, ESP Window Tinting and Graphics has changed gears a bit. We are now using our sign-making machinery to make sneeze guards. We’ve ramped up production of social distancing signage, and we’re working closely with one of our film manufacturers to supply face shields rated for healthcare use.

Sneeze Guards

ESP Window Tinting and Graphics is now manufacturing acrylic sneeze guards using the machines we normally use to make signs. These trying times called for action, so with a little creativity, innovation, and extra effort, we redirected our resources to meet the needs of the community.

Sneeze guards are designed to serve as barriers between staff and customers. Place them in areas where employees are likely to interact with customers closely. These areas include cash registers, information desks, and food pickup points at restaurants, for example. They’re also excellent for separating employee work stations.

We offer sneeze guards in standard and custom sizes. They are easy to assemble and install. Personalize them with custom messages, graphics, and your logo.

Social Distancing Signage

Social distancing signage can play a key role in ensuring everyone’s safety. Use it to direct customers to stay a safe distance from each other, or to ensure that employees can work safely, without getting too close to customers or each other. Strategically-placed signage can direct the flow of people as they enter and exit your business, or direct them to move in certain ways while at your business, whether it be a retail outlet or a professional office. For example, you can position floor signs six feet apart to direct people where to stand when waiting in lines. You can also place signage shaped like dots or lines on the floor with anti-slip material.

Signs serve as a great reminder to employees and customers of safety protocols. Place signs telling them to wipe down carts before using them, or to remind them to stand safe distances apart.

ESP Window Tinting and Graphics is working closely with businesses in the community to ensure they have the signage they need to keep everyone safe while keeping their businesses fully or partially opened. Social distancing signage can be customized with any text your business requires, as well as your company name.

Chemical-Resistant Face Shields

At ESP Window Tinting and Graphics, we typically spend our days tinting some of the Midwest’s largest buildings with premium products. However, as the needs of the world shift, we are committed to shifting along with them. We are proud to work with a manufacturer that is pivoting its operations from producing window film to making face shields to meet the needs caused by the pandemic.

The FDA authorizes our face shields for use by healthcare workers as personal protective equipment (PPE). They are also ANSI Z877.1-2015 certified splash shields against droplet hazards.

We are currently offering these U.S.-made face shields to our customers at affordable prices. We can ship them the same day from our warehouse directly to your location for minimum orders of 150.
