Protective clear plastic shields are now the norm in most physical retail environments. Even before Covid-19 became part of our daily reality, some categories of retail shops used plastic shields to protect their merchandise, such as those who carry perishable consumables and marijuana dispensaries.

Axenics’ plastics team created protective clear plastic shields for Seagrass, a retailer in Salem, MA.

Axenics’ plastics team recently created clear plastic shields for Seagrass, a dispensary located in Salem, MA. In addition to choosing the plastic, routing it to size and completing the finishing work, Axenics also etched the Seagrass logo onto the shields.

Some dispensaries in states such as Colorado and California featured clear plastic shields at cash wrap/check out stations prior to the pandemic. In order to offer some additional protection for face-to-face customers and staff, many retail shops now have some type of plastic shield, typically in a location where a shopper and staff member would be physically close. For example, you’ve likely seen plastic shields in front of card readers where payment occurs.

Axenics’ Ernest Coolong said it was important for the team at Seagrass to have the clear plastic shields fit seamlessly into their shop’s aesthetic. Seagrass’ website describes the shop as offering “the best legal, adult-use cannabis products in a welcoming environment for all.”

Ernest worked directly with Axenics’ head of research and development to determine the best material and design for the final product. They determined a polycarbonate shield with acrylic feet or legs was the best option.
