mk Solutions expands portfolio with mk Sneeze Guard

York, PA, USA, June 24, 2020 Markus Flory, President, announces mk Solutions is helping libraries better manage patron interaction during the COVID-19 pandemic by expanding its portfolio to include touchless library automation solutions, like the mk Sneeze Guard, made from real tempered glass, not Plexi/Acrylic.

"When looking for clear barriers to provide protection for customers and staff, the Metropolitan Library System looked for glass rather than Plexiglas barriers. Our experience with Plexiglas barriers had been that one-time cleaning with the wrong type of cleaner can ruin them. We chose mk Solutions as our provider because their units were glass, taller than most (allowing for varying heights of people), and can be moved to another location very easily because they do not have to attach to the counter. They were easy to put together and install. We've been very happy with them and because they can be cleaned very easily, they are cleaned regularly and are not a distraction like we would have experienced with Plexiglas when they became foggy or scratched," explains Anne Fischer, Deputy Executive Director/Technology at Metropolitan Library System.

mk Solutions wanted to help libraries protect their staff and patrons while fitting into their budget long term, not just providing a short-term fix that needs to be replaced in the near future. The new mk Sneeze Guard, made from real tempered glass, is the best solution.

Markus Flory, President of mk Solutions, Inc., explains, "Many customers were buying materials like Plexi/Acrylic and they can't be disinfected without getting cloudy and brittle. They scratch and fall over easily. Because we know libraries, manufacturing a cheaper version and then having additional replacement costs down the road is inappropriate for us. To maintain our reputation of high quality products, we are manufacturing a sturdy, long-lasting solution that saves costs, can be properly disinfected, and creates an attractive environment for both staff and patrons. In addition, we know that libraries will be changing the way they do business and, along with our touchless library automation, the mk Sneeze Guard solution fits perfectly into our portfolio."

mk's products are known for their innovation and sleek design. Now, with the mk Sneeze Guard and together with other mk touchless library automation solutions, mk creates an inviting atmosphere and allows libraries to continue to serve their communities safely.
