What are the best products to buy to combat the Omicron variant?
There are a wide variety of different social distancing screens available, which one you choose depends on the specific requirements of your work environment. We’ve laid out the styles you can choose from:
Desk Divider & Reception Screens
Perspex desk screens are designed to break up large banks of desks into smaller, individual working ‘cubicles’. These partitions can clip or screw into a desk, or sit freestanding on top of it, to form protective barrier between employees, or between staff and customers. Installing Perspex® acrylic or glass desk divider screens is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to introduce social distancing partitions to your workplace. For retail and hospitality venues or receptions, these panels allow safe interaction with members of the public. Models with cut-out hatches are also available for easy and safe transactions.
The transparent finish of the acrylic or glass also allows light to pass through your office, as well as enabling employees to continue to communicate effectively, maintaining a bright, airy and friendly atmosphere while forming a hygienic barrier to help prevent the spread of the Omicron variant of Coronavirus.
These versatile social distancing screens are available in desktop or floor-standing varieties. They require no installation or set up, they simply stand in place wherever you need them most. Floor-standing Perspex screens can be connected together using the linking strips included, making them a great way to create pop-up meeting rooms or workspaces within a larger, open-plan office. Creating smaller spaces can be a key tool for minimising contact in your office, reducing the chance for the virus to spread.
Mobile Perspex screens are our most popular full-length social distancing partition, thanks to their practicality and flexibility. Easy to move around due to the lockable castor wheels fixed to their base, these screens can easily be rolled around your workplace and locked into place wherever you need them. They can be used to create temporary meeting spaces or divide up ‘zones’ in offices; to segment off practical areas such as printers or kettles; between patients at medical facilities; or between students in classrooms.
Ideal for offices that are short on desk or floor space, in hospitality venues such as bars, pubs or restaurants, in salons and hairdressers and in retail spaces; hanging Perspex screens offer an excellent alternative to other types of social distancing screen. These Perspex® or lightweight plastic panels are designed to be suspended from the ceiling in place of a fixed desk divider or reception counter screen.
As we negotiate our way through the ever-changing landscape of the Coronavirus pandemic, our restrictions and social distancing requirements are always being updated. At times, stricter measures will be required due to the rise of a new variant, such as Omicron. As a result, choosing a product that’s easy to store away when you don’t need it is a good idea, especially if you are short on space. These clever partitions are made from lightweight 300μm-thick transparent plastic and can be pulled up and rolled away easily, just like a traditional roller blind. Available in a floor standing roll up screen and desktop clear banner screen , they’re ideal for adapting to changing circumstances - plus they’re very affordable so they won’t break the bank.
