Dear SIr,
Insted of cross over bentch,Can we segregate the area with food grade acrylic sheet

Ideally cross over bench are of SS 304, I dont think there is need of acrylic sheet…


I want to ask, can we segregate the area by using any other barrier like food grade sheet or SS sheet instead of crossover bench.Or crossover bench is mandatory .

Cross over bench is not a mandatory tool, it is Mainly used for interference of personnel movements from one area to another area you will be mark with any colour sticker
