What Wipeable Office Dividers For The Workplace Following COVID-19

In light of the current COVID-19 crisis the world is facing; it is more important than ever to ensure the safety of your employees and the customers that are visiting your business premesis.

With the social distancing rules that are in force by the UK Government, it has meant that many businesses have had to close their doors for the foreseeable future. The option of working from home is simply not possible in some sectors which have meant these industries have come to a complete halt.

Many businesses simply don't have the capability to allow all members of staff to remotely work from home due to the nature of their services and infrastructure of their company. Essential key workers have no choice but to continue to fight the fight against coronavirus whilst being at their place of work, on the front line.

As a result, all open businesses and workplaces are creating their own rules that fall in line with the social distancing measures the Government have put in place. This is to minimise the contact between each person and reduce interactions where possible.

We have seen many businesses change and adapt to the current climate and enforce safety measures so their business can keep operating. These include changing working hours, staggered or flexible shift patterns, job sharing, skeleton staff, no visitor policy, video conferencing, virtual meetings, as well as restrictions on the number of people allowed in the premises at any one time.

All of the above play a crucial role in keeping staff and visitors safe during this pandemic, however, there is more you can do, especially in customer-facing scenarios.

You can easily adapt your workspace to create partitions between your staff and visitors. We know how easily coronavirus can spread so by imposing a physical barrier you can significantly reduce the risk of an infectious sneeze or cough getting to your employees.

The most frequent question we are getting asked at the moment is what Types of Partition Screens are available that will keep our employees safe? Well, there is plenty on offer, we have the UK’s largest range of office partition screens and social distancing screens

Social Distancing Roller Banner Protection Screen

Our most cost-effective solution is the Roller Banner Clear Protective Divider. Available in just 72 hours, this portable protection screen can be used in a wide range of settings. Lightweight and easy to move to any location where a divider screen is needed.

The see-through, clear banner can retract into the base when it isn't needed. The twist out feet located at the bottom of the bar ensures i is stable when in use.

You can use multiple screens next to each other to form a longer protective divider; ideal for customer queue barriers or as social distancing screens in between customers and staff. 

The Free Standing Perspex Divider Screens are one of our most popular social distancing screens. As well as Perspex, our free-standing perspex partition screen is manufactured from thermally toughened Safety Glass, impact tested to British Standard: BS 6206: 1981 - Class A. 

Toughened glass is four to five times stronger than standard annealed float glass and if broken, disintegrates into small fragments with dulled edges that are less likely to cause injury. 

These social distancing screens benefit from wipeable, hygienic surfaces that can be maintained regularly for a safer working environment. They are available in a choice of sizes, frame colours and with a choice of round or t-bar feet.

Our Perspex Desk Dividers help by providing a physical barrier between workstations whilst maintaining social distancing, hygiene and safety protocols. The frameless design features rounded, smooth edges that are diamond polished for a nicer and safe finish.

The aluminium frame features linking capabilities that enables you to link multiple screens together to accommodate large groups of desks.

Flatpack Sneeze Screens For Desktops

Freestanding Office Partitions are available in many different standard sizes raining from 600mm (w) x 1800mm (h) and everything in between. They can be linked to each other to create a straight line or a 90-degree angle.

Freestanding room dividers are ideal for blocking off restricted areas and maintaining a safe social distance between employees and the general public. They can be linked together to create a wall that directs foot traffic in a certain direction, or just as easily away from a restricted area.

You can choose from fabric-covered floor standing office screens or glazed screens, however, glazed screens are the most suitable for the environment we are currently faced with.

They each feature two stabilising feet that provide stability when in use. When more than one office screen is linked together, each individual partition only requires one stabilising foot, however, we supply two with each office screen so they are able to be used separately if required.

Transparent Partition Screens, also known as glazed screens or acrylic partitions. They are the most effective way of protecting your staff and the public from potential risks. Available as desk mounted and freestanding options, both benefit from wipable, easy-clean surfaces that help prevent the excessive spread of bacteria and germs.

See-through screen partitions enable you to create a workable barrier without compromising visibility, communication and service levels.

You can choose from straight glazed screens or curved glazed screens that are encased in a powder-coated aluminium frame which can be easily disinfected and cleaned.

Half vision glazed screens are available to block off and shield workspaces you may not want on display, but also provide a smaller transparent acrylic panel for easy communication. Different coloured or opaque acrylic can be used on the lower half of the freestanding screen to limit visibility.

Desk screens or countertop partitions are easily attached to any work surface using a pair of clamps which hold it in position. We have many standard sizes available but more importantly, our Customised Desk Partition Acrylic Screens can be bespoke made to suit any size and desk requirement. All we need is the dimensions of the area you are trying to cover and the surface that it will be fixed on to, we can design and manufacturer your protective solution for you.

There are two types of acrylic desk partitions available, these are our aluminium framed glazed partitions, or the frameless acrylic desk screens.

Both styles of office screens offer a protective barrier with wipeable and hygienic surfaces that can effortlessly and effectively be cleaned without compromising the integrity of the protective screen.

We can manufacture bespoke clamps that will allow you to attach the protective desk partition to the surface of your table, reception desk or countertop.

Clear Portable Partitions are acrylic glazed office screens that are mounted onto easy-glide wheels allowing you to effortless manoeuvre your protective screen to any location it is needed.

They are manufactured using a high-grade aluminium frame in silver or white, and a 2mm thick acrylic panel that is available in clear, frosted white or polar white. Each mobile screen is complete with lockable wheels ensuring it is safely secured when in position.

Just like the freestanding office screens, mobile office partitions can be half vision or full vision. You can mix acrylic colours, alternatively, you can have half the screen covered in a luxury Camira fabric to restrict some visibility.

In addition, we have a variety of fabric covered portable room dividers available which can be used to restrict access to areas within your working environment.

Glass Office Pods are a larger, more permanent structure that can be used in a whole host of different environments. Like all of our office screen solutions, you can create your own design that is customised to your requirements.

Each wall of the glazed office pod can be covered with a choice of acoustic fabric panels, clear or opaque glass, whiteboard writing surface or a mixture of all three surfaces. Sliding doors are also available to create a private and concealed working area.

Aside from their most popular and typical uses, these glass structures can be used to create designated waiting rooms or used as temporary working areas for essential key workers.

Optional air-flow management can be installed to ensure clean, fresh air is circulated within the room and the glazed glass walls mean that they are incredibly easy to maintain and keep clean.

To maximise the hygiene within the glass office pod; it would be more appropriate to have three glass walls with a sliding glass door.

Delivery and installation are undertaken by our team of expert contractors to ensure they are safely and properly installed.
