We have an acrylic dropboard for normal security, but I made a simple plywood facsimile, made some substantial cutouts in it and applied screening to it.

We simply choose which one to use based on the conditions we're in. If you have multiple drop boards you might choose to make one of them with screens and another with a lens and use them interchangeably as required.
