Tuftco Building Safety Screens to Fight Coronavirus Spread

Chattanooga, TN, April 13, 2020-Tuftco is re-calibrating some operations to build safety screens to serve as a shield between individuals and lower the risk of Coronavirus spread, reports the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

Tuftco will make the screens using a Plexiglass-type of material and put them on wheels so they’re movable. The company expects to produce about a half dozen of the safety screens a day.

The company is offering the panels to hospitals, grocery stores and government entities. 

Tuftco has purchased 500 sheets of Lexan, which is a clear polycarbonate resin thermoplastic. Tuftco will make three different sizes of the safety screens.
