COVID-19 introduced the need for more screening in situations and places we wouldn’t normally expect. It changed the way we work, the way we think and to this day, we’re still adjusting. As the pandemic started the need for protection was needed fast. In most cases, screens were purchased to provide protection without consideration for the future.
At the time, it was about making sure everyone was safe, with attempts to keep businesses open with staff and customers protected. Over 2 years on, the purchased screening may have been taken down, but if you have them, how can it still benefit your office or workplace now?
One of the main factors of social distance screening was the ability to wipe clean and disinfect, as well as being able to keep people apart. An easy clean surface could be easily sprayed, and wiped clean between uses, limiting the number of germs. Acrylic and laminate were the tops choices for cleanliness with the added benefit of looking modern.
Acrylic Desktop Dividers can still be used today, if not for safety then for a division. Open desk spaces can become messy and the ability to see when one desk starts and another finishes can be difficult. Keeping the acrylic desktop dividers in place creates an obvious divide for each desk space, without blocking out natural light. Desk visibility isn’t reduced, and open communication can continue.
You may have noticed in the retail sector, acrylic screens with cutouts are still part of their everyday routine. Positioned across the till areas, implementing a safe distance and creating a barrier. The cutout is a useful feature, making it possible to pass through items without any obstruction.
Acrylic and laminate freestanding dividers aren’t seen regularly out and about. They are mainly used in a medical environment, where limiting the spread of germs is imperative. However, freestanding screens can be implanted well after COVID-19 in many scenarios.
Screening can be used to create a queuing system, positioned between dining tables and making designated one way traffic. These options may feel like times during COVID-19 but how we think and feel about being close to others has changed too.
The fact is, even after 2 years has passed, COVID-19 is part of everyday living and we have become accustomed to being wearier. Safety measures don’t have to be in place, but with the addition of noninvasive clear screening, comfort can be felt.
Overall, we believe there is a place for social distancing screens and that they can be used well into the future. Acrylic, laminate, easy to clean and stylish are just a few reasons why COVID screening can be used beyond COVID-19.
