Return to Work with Protective Screens

As the government have released their COVID-19 Recovery Strategy, businesses can prepare to get back to work and put in place some new measures to ensure their employees will be safe at work.

While Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that you should work from home if you can, for those that cannot need to work in a safe workplace environment.

If you are a business whose staff cannot work 2m apart, you must implement risk mitigations to ensure their safety while they work. If you do not, you could be fined.

We have prepared many businesses on their return to work when the lockdown was lifted before and ensured they have got back to work with the safety and well-being of their employees at the forefront of their decisions.

Protective screens are the solution to those in an office environment and we have several options catering for all office space designs to ensure employees feel safe and protected.

Types of Protective Screens

Full Height Screens

These are PVC screens that have feet and can be ordered in a standard size of 2m X 2m as well as made in bespoke sizes too.

They are very versatile as the feet allow them to be sat next to each other neatly. Offices are using them for back-to-back desks as employees sit facing one another and at the side of individual desks. Schools are using them to separate classrooms so the children can work in small groups and individual bubbles.

The anti-microbial fabric panel is completely transparent and can be removed to clean while the metal frames are a wipeable aluminium that has a strong and sturdy frame.

These protective screens can be installed very easily without any professional help and with just two people.
