Flexible and high-quality: PLEXIGLAS® hygiene protection

From flexible counter attachments to mobile partitions, to permanently installed hygiene protection – PLEXIGLAS® has the right solution for every location. Now available with an antimicrobial surface coating.

PLEXIGLAS®, the brand acrylic glass from Röhm, provides numerous options to create contemporary and high-quality hygiene protection in retail and restaurants, as well as all other locations with high public traffic.

Health protection is always important

PLEXIGLAS® hygiene protection can be deployed to prevent droplet infections – in addition to the general hygiene measures such as wearing a mask and airing out the room. We developed our new product variant PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial specifically for areas with increased hygiene demands.

Mobile PLEXIGLAS® protective screens have proven to be a quick and flexible solution. Beyond these applications, permanent constructions for hygiene protection have been installed in many public locations. These constructions will probably also play a role when it comes to interior design in the future, as will easy-to-clean surfaces that can be disinfected when required.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in increased demand for coated materials that are hygienic and scratch-resistant, such as PLEXIGLAS® Optical HC. PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial furthermore prevents the spreading of viruses and bacteria on surfaces.

PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial – Easily meet increased hygiene demands

PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial is the best solution to save time and effort and prevent damage caused by improper cleaning and disinfection, particularly in applications with high public traffic and increased hygiene demands. As the surface prevents microbial growth, additional disinfection is not necessary. At the same time, the coating provides excellent resistance to abrasion and chemicals – and is therefore very easy to clean.

An added benefit: The front and back can be used for hygiene protection applications thanks to the coating on both sides. PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial is also available with one-sided coating upon demand; it is also possible to coat sheets with different material thicknesses or coat sheets colored according to individual wishes on one side or both sides with the antimicrobial coating.

The antimicrobial effect has been confirmed by an independent testing institute and the respective certificates are available on request.

PLEXIGLAS® multi-skin sheets are particularly stable – even in large sizes

PLEXIGLAS® multi-skin sheets are particularly stable. Protective screens with larger dimensions can be free-standing or mounted on counters, using PLEXIGLAS® multi-skin sheets in a frame design. Thanks to their shape, these twin-wall sheets are highly stable when used vertically, yet remarkably lightweight.
