Hi all,
this time im try choose new 30w galvo fiber to my workshop and im wondering that majority od chinese machines are totally open. I want do something more for my eyes and skin safety but no experience. I found some special acrylic for 1064nm but must contact them for more info. Please can you share your solutions and experiences ?

Thank you very much for hints.

You really only have two choices... the wavelength-specific acrylic or a blocking blanket. I will warn you, though, the acrylic is expensive. Typically you'll create a small window from the acrylic and just block the rest.
