Dividing Screens: For Your Protection, pt. 2
These products address the pandemic-fueled challenge of how to safely bring employees back to the office while providing physical separation in open workspace floor plans.
Wellness Divider | Integra Seating
Free-standing at an overall height of 52” and a weight of just 26 lbs., the polycarbonate divider with base and upright supports in solid steel with silver powder coat finish combines a clean, minimalist aesthetic and practical functionality designed to create space between seated guests in waiting rooms, lounges and guest and lobby areas.
Barriers | Raydoor
This New York-based sliding door company is drawing from their existing raw materials to make new social distancing partitions with different finishes and aesthetics. A variety of lines within the collection cover partition needs for areas such as commercial reception desks, check-in counters, cash registers (Side Frame); open-floor office spaces, waiting rooms, lounge areas (Perimeter) and even a line designed for bars, restaurants and hotels (Base Frame).
Velcro Social Distancing Strap | Sandler
While not a barrier like the rest in this round-up, this Social Distancing Strap nevertheless helps individuals adhere to social distancing regulations. Made from brushed aluminium with the ability for custom signage to be added, the strap attaches to any upholstered seating model using a Velcro strap. Expect to see products like this in university lecture theatres, schools, conference halls, cinemas, theatres, public transport and business auditoriums.
Palisades Vista | Spacestor
With transparent acrylic panels and a black metal structure reminiscent of steel-framed windows, this new system offers a minimalistic solution to bacteria spread. The panels can be removed from their frames and converted into desktop, freestanding, or mobile partitions, and the entire system can be customized with accessories like screen extensions, acoustic panels, white boards, sanitization stations, personal storage lockers, and coloured panel options.
Quick Separation Screens | Stylex
With an impressive lead time of only 10 business days, these screens live up to their name. A top connecting screw allows grouped panels to create any size corner angle, and they can stand alone or be grouped together with optional casters to move or nest when not in use. Available in two heights and two widths, they come standard with ½” plated-steel feet that may be specified in 26 powder-coated colours, and upholstery options are plentiful.
Connect Safe Screen Collection | Yellow Goat Design
This collection aims to bring artistry and confidence to workspaces with fluted acrylics, digital printed acrylic, laser cut, and polycarbonate screens that define physical distance, while also maintaining social communication through designs. These screens are easily customized for colour, size, print to suit any space.
