However, unlike other shields on the market, you do not have to screw these into the countertop or hang them from the ceiling. They are designed to be set easily on a surface. You can also set different leg heights to adjust the size of the open space under the shield or purchase the options with a cutout.Plus, the two larger models are completely collapsible to a single piece that is only 3 inches thick. This makes the shields easy to move and store.

What about the lead time?

These shields have a 1 to 3-year warranty, which is better than most models offered by competitors.
