Desk Shields & Desk Dividers

Our middle/high school desk shields & desk dividers are ready to ship within 48 hours!

Enhance a Colour is manufacturing school desk shields that are made from a sturdy plastic material that will not break or fall off of your students’ desks.

Student desk shields and desk dividers are long lasting and easy to clean with soap and water or a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution, saving your school money every day!

When New York and Connecticut were at the center of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Personal Protection Equipment was in desperate need for our healthcare workers. Recognizing a need, Enhance a Colour leveraged our expertise working with plastics to produce 75,000 face shields per week, helping equip Connecticut and New York hospitals with much needed PPE.

When schools were challenged to reopen this summer, Enhance a Colour again responded, creating school desk shields and desk dividers that are fire rated, and approved for use in New York State and New York City, meeting some of the toughest standards nationwide.




Lessons Learned from working with over 400 districts ordering School Desk Shields

We have learned that to keep children safe:

• Not all desks are the same size.

• Pre-made shields do not fit your desks or your classrooms.

• Cardboard, Foam, or PETG shields do not last when used daily.

• Plexiglass shields crack and break when they are moved or dropped.

You can order custom sizes to fit your classroom, made from sturdy materials that will not break.
