Dillmeier Glass now offers a full line of customizable sneeze guards and glass dividers to meet this expanded demand. Whether in food service, retail, hospitality or other industries, we can fabricate a sneeze guard to meet your needs.
Tempered Glass: The Cost-Effective Option
While acrylic or plexiglass guards are much more prevalent, tempered glass is a far more durable option—and is often very similar in price to other alternatives. Tempered glass is shatter resistant, scratch resistant, and perfect for high-traffic environments such as retail.

We can't speak highly enough of Dillmeier’s customer service
"We needed a few custom glass shields for our reception area and the Dillmeier team turned the project around quickly and to our specifications. Plus, they helped us decide which mounting options to use for our desks. The units were incredibly easy to assemble and install onsite. We can't speak highly enough of Dillmeier’s customer service and this certainly won't be the last time we work together."

Dillmeier Glass Company’s sneeze guards are manufactured using tempered or laminated glass--these materials are less likely to suffer from scratches, discoloration and damage than acrylic or plexiglass. Tempered glass is recommended because of its durability, shatter-proof properties, and scratch-free, transparent surface. For added safety, laminated glass is produced with two pieces of regular or tempered glass sandwiched between clear plastic resin. Should breakage occur, all layers are held together, instead of shattering into pieces or pebbles.
