If you need to protect public-facing workers during the COVID-19 crisis, see what these stores and restaurants are using

by Brianna Crandall — April 20, 2020 — As the need for protection against COVID-19 transmission remains critical in all types of facilities across the United States, CoolSys, a parent of refrigeration and HVAC services companies nationwide, is providing installation of protective plexiglass panels, known as “sneeze guards,” at check-out counters in grocery, restaurant and other essential retail stores.

Adam Coffey, CEO at CoolSys, stated:

During this challenging time, we are doing whatever we can to respond to the needs of our customers to prevent transmission of COVID-19. By installing sneeze guard plexiglass panels at the point of purchase, retail stores can add another layer of safety and peace of mind for customers and employees.

While sneeze guards are already commonly used in grocery and food-service locations at self-serve food bars and other areas that require a protective barrier, their installation at check-out counters represents a new measure in the effort to contain and prevent COVID-19 transmission. They can help customers and employees maintain social distance and physical separation while protecting from splashes and sprays.

CoolSys and its family of companies has already installed plexiglass panels at multiple locations of leading grocery chains and is expanding these services nationwide to meet their customers’ growing demand to help keep employees and customers safer during this global crisis

CoolSys provides refrigeration and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) services, with more than 100 mechanical, electrical, plumbing and refrigeration (MEPR) engineers and 1,850 field-based technicians specializing in every stage of mission-critical systems from engineering and design, to installation, service and maintenance, and energy optimization.

Headquartered in Southern California, CoolSys offers a full suite of services covering the daily needs of more than 40,000 customer locations across North America spanning a range of industries from healthcare, telecom, pharmaceutical, grocery, retail, commercial and industrial cold storage.
