With the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 changing the way we interact as a society with social distancing, the longer-term implications of how companies deal with people are already adapting for those organisations still operating during the lockdown period.
And, even when the current lockdown rules are relaxed, and things start to get back to normal, there is an expectation that it could take months with some form of social distancing still in force.
Due to the flexibility and breadth of the MiniTec profile system, we have spent the past week developing a screen system that can be implemented in a wide range of organisations that deal with the general public. The screen is designed to ensure the safety of staff who are on the front line of helping people with essential tasks, as well as instilling confidence of customers who visit your premises.
Constructed from aluminium profile and clear polycarbonate plexiglass, the protection screens are an ideal solution for hygiene and safety. They are easy to clean and maintain and offer a robust solution to the issues associated with social distancing and COVID-19.
The standard protective screen panel is designed to sit or mount to an existing worksurface, is 1 metre high and 1.5 metres wide and can be extended with multiple panels to extend the overall face. There is also an additional shorter corner panel for extra protection. The lower section of the screen unit has a 20cm recess for passing through items between people.
Because of the flexibility of MiniTec, we can also adapt the solution to bespoke sizes if you have a specific requirement including:
- Reception desks
- Shop counters
- Till checkouts
- Security desks and checkpoints
We are already seeing requests for these screen solutions, including a major UK airport, and rest assured we are still available during the lock-down to produce these essential items so that your business is as prepared as it can be to continue or resume trading.
