CoolSys Provides Sneeze Guard Installation Services at Grocery and Retail Check-Out Counters to Help Prevent COVID-19 Transmission

April 18, 2020

As the need for protection against COVID-19 transmission remains critical across the United States, CoolSys™, a parent of market-leading refrigeration and HVAC services companies nationwide, is providing installation of plexi-glass protective panels, known as sneeze guards, at check-out counters in grocery, restaurant and other essential retail stores.

“During this challenging time, we are doing whatever we can to respond to the needs of our customers to prevent transmission of COVID-19,” comments Adam Coffey, CEO at CoolSys.  “By installing sneeze guard plexi-glass 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 sneeze guards at multiple locations of leading  grocery-chains  and is expanding these services nationwide to meet growing demand.

“We are happy that our field crews are able to use their skills and experience to install sneeze guards at some of our most important customers’ locations to help keep their employees and their customers safer during this global crisis,”said Joe Roomsburg, general manager and former owner of Virginia-based BRR Refrigeration, a CoolSys company.
