Table game protection shields » KGM
KGM, Pennsylvania-based casino supply manufacturer, has added table game protection shields to its Social Protection line of products.
Table game protection shields are installed on table games to separate players sitting next to each other and separate the dealer from the players, according to press materials. These shields can be produced in custom sizes and are available for multiple player configurations. The table game protection shields can be adapted to fit a variety of table and game layouts.
Once the shields are on the casino floor, they can be easily adjusted to increase or decrease the number of players that can be seated at a table. The upright posts and brackets are made from strong, powder coated steel and the shields are made from plexiglass. Players are still able to see each other and the dealer through the plexiglass. This provides a safe barrier while keeping the community aspect of these table games alive.
