When choosing the right social distancing screen for your workplace there are lots of things to consider. What material to choose? What size do you need? What role does it need to play? And, perhaps most crucially, how much do you want to spend?
There are all kinds of different Perspex® panels, dividers and partition options to choose from to suit different work environments and all budgets. Choosing a Perspex® (or even a safety glass) divider is an excellent option during the Coronavirus pandemic as these screens are easy to keep clean and sanitised with just a wipe. We’ve rounded up a few options in different price ranges to give you some inspiration. Or browse our entire range of social distancing screens for yourself.
It is absolutely possible to provide a quality social distancing solution for your business without breaking the bank. The Hanging Ceiling-Mounted Perspex® Protection Screen can be easily installed to the ceiling using its plastic chains, meaning it doesn’t take up valuable floor space in smaller offices or retail outlets. Made from lightweight transparent 3mm-thick Perspex®, it’s an ideal solution for smaller budgets.
Inexpensive, practical and easy to install, the Retractable Sneeze Guard Protective Counter Screen offers an alternative to more solid Perspex® partitions with its ultra-light 300μm-thick transparent plastic panel which can be rolled up and down quickly and easily for an adaptable social distancing screen. Still easy to keep clean and sanitised between interactions, this popular screen is also available with dispatch within 24hours.
£50 - £100
You’d be surprised at the quality of the Perspex® social distancing screens we sell for under £100. For nail salons and beauty parlours, the Nail Salon Perspex® Divider allows nail treatments and manicures to continue safely, putting a hygienic and easy-to-sanitise barrier between nail technicians and beauty therapists and their clients.
You can also protect counters, tills and receptions with a high-quality protective screen for less than £100. The ACHOO® Crystal Clear Counter Protection Screen is made from premium acrylic glass and finished with stylish and modern Concorde-style ‘legs’, proving that just because these dividers are practical doesn’t mean they can’t be elegant, too.
£100 - £200
Counters, tills and receptions are some of the most exposed working environments in terms of visitor traffic. Installing quality protective screens at these service points is important for keeping both employees and customers safe. Where transactions are necessary, a divider with a cut-out hatch at the bottom is essential. The CLARITY PLUS Perspex® Sneeze Screen with Cut Out is easy to install and sturdy, thanks to its self-mounting flaps which can be stuck to the counter using double-sided tape or screwed in for extra stability.
As we move towards a situation in the pandemic where vaccines may become more readily available, the ability for doctors, nurses and pharmacists to give injections in a safe, socially-distanced manner is vital. Also useful for blood draws, taking blood pressure and other vaccinations such as the winter flu jab, the Mobile Protective Arm Vaccination Screen is ideal for hospitals, pharmacies and other medical facilities to protect staff and patients.
Office social distancing dividers can be used for more practical purposes as well as helping to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. The Glazed Office Desktop Screen with Triple Tool Rail in premium Greencast acrylic is available in 3 different finishes and has a triple tool rail function at the top of the divider for attaching monitors or other desk accessories.
£200 - £300
For a medical setting, having a social distancing screen that’s light and easy to manoeuvre is essential when doctors, nurses and other healthcare staff are experiencing a constant stream of patients. The PREMIUM Mobile Perspex® Medical Divider Screen is specially designed for this environment. Made from lightweight 3mm-thick Perspex®, it’s easy to move around or fix in place temporarily thanks to the lockable castor wheels. Perspex® is also a material that’s very easy to sanitise in between patients, making it ideal for a medical environment.
£300 - £500
Having social distancing measures that are adjustable and adaptable is important if your work environment requires solutions that need to be flexible. Choosing something like the 2 meter-tall GUARDIAN Mobile Divider on Wheels gives you the option to fix the panel in place using the lock option on the castor wheels, which also turn through 360° making this divider partition easy to move around to where you need it most.
Also useful for larger work environments is the ability to connect several Perspex® screen dividers together to form a transparent protective COVID-19 barrier wall. Like other products we sell, the ACHOO® Mobile Perspex® Linking Screens can be used on their own or linked together in-line to divide off areas of your office or workplace to assist with social distancing measures.
£500 - £1,000
As an alternative to Perspex®, the ACHOO® Curved Reception Desk Screen is manufactured from thermally toughened safety glass, which is weighty and scratch-resistant. Designed specifically for purpose, this curved panel with a modern, frameless design forms a safe barrier between workers and members of the public in areas that are often highly trafficked.
£1,000 and up
If you have plenty of areas to cover, you’ll need social distancing solutions that keep your team safe and healthy. The ACHOO® Modular 8-Desk Workstation Dividers work really well for a long bank of desks. Made from crystal-clear high-quality 6mm-thick Perspex® and frameless for a sleek, modern look, this is a premium product and well worth the investment. The acrylic used for the panels is optically clearer than glass and laser cut for smooth corners. Buy the set as a whole or build a custom arrangement to suit your workspace.
For the ultimate in COVID-secure areas (and particularly useful in Care facilities where it is now a requirement to have floor-to-ceiling social distancing panels in place) there’s nothing safer than creating an entire ‘pod’ or mini meeting room. This Floor-To-Ceiling Perspex® COVID Cubicle, exclusively available through XL Displays, is height-adjustable up to 2.6m, offering the maximum protection from the airborne transmission of Coronavirus.
