Desk Sneeze Protection Screens
Safety is at the forefront of everybody’s minds, with sneeze guards and desk protection screens as a protective counter screens recommended as a favourable solution for a COVID-secure workplace. New suggested measures are being put in place to keep employees safe, healthy and well-separated. This includes 2-metre social distancing floor markings, staggered working hours and distanced outdoor meetings. Acrylic, plastic and Plexiglas desk dividers and sneeze guard glass are also something that look to become commonplace in the post-pandemic workplace.
First and foremost, employers are being advised to review the layout of their workplaces so that staff can work side-by-side or back-to-back (rather than face-to-face) and always at a 2 metre distance from once another. Hot-desking and shared workspaces are to be avoided entirely too. Where any of these measures aren’t possible – or for extra precaution – anti-viral COVID screens are the recommended solution.

Bolstering future infection control
When it comes to employee well being and protecting your workforce, it isn’t just Coronavirus that you need to be concerned about. Even something way less severe like the common cold or flu can have a significant impact on productivity, wellbeing and absence rates so having precautionary measures in place year-round is a great way to fend against this.
A future-proof & multifunctional office design solution
Although employee safety and creating a COVID-secure workplace is of paramount importance right now, some are worried that once normality resumes, there won’t be a place in the ‘normal’ office for these sneeze guards and screens. With good design there are ways in which the desk dividers and free-standing screens you invest in now can help future-proof your workspace and offer additional benefits going forward. They are far, far more than just a physical barrier between staff.
One of the biggest bugbears of open plan workspaces and activity-based working (ABW) is excess noise. As people move about more nomadically and sound travels more freely, the lack of acoustic control can cause problems with concentration, communication, productivity and mental wellbeing. Having these screens in place will help create barriers around the space to block out some of this background noise.
