This web site covers a verity of partitions and sneeze guards. The first step in using this web site is understanding the terminology. Lets start with two terms which can be a little confusing, Sneeze Guard and Partition. If you are looking to separate two areas which are not involved with a food service line or food preparation, you are most likely looking for a partition. Booth dividers, office divider, reception areas, visual barriers to hide work stations all are common applications for partitions. Sneeze Guards are designed to shield foods, and food preparation areas from the breath areas of customers. We have outlined what we have found to be acceptable to most areas across the country on the Sneeze Guard Guideline
page, however your local building department,or health departments may have stricter requirements. You may want to look at the Buffet Service Guidelines
as well. You will want to visit different areas of the web site for different issues. This help page will provide links to the various sections of the web site. At the top of every page you will find the main menu bar. We will start at the left and work our way accross.
