With employers looking to provide a safe environment for when office workers get the go-ahead to return to work, Onduline Building Products has launched a workplace protective screen system to help shield against the threat of COVID-19.
The ‘safe, secure and simple to install’ protective screens are made from durable, easy to clean polycarbonate (PC) plastics and are designed to sit in between desks and workstations to act as a dividing and protective screen.
They make use of the same technology found in Onduline’s plastic sheet products that form part of the company’s extensive range of lightweight roofing solutions.
As well as offices and other commercial buildings, the screens can also be used in public buildings such as schools and colleges.
Manufactured in the UK, no specialist equipment is required to fit them and as they are lightweight, they are very easy to handle and manoeuvre.
Paul Duffy, Managing Director at Onduline Building Products, said: “Onduline is best known for its lightweight roofing systems and plastics for agricultural, industrial, leisure and DIY applications, which continue to form 99% of our product range.
“But in the same way that we’ve all had to adapt to what is an evolving situation at home and at work, we’ve taken the opportunity presented by the technology and these challenging times to bring this new product to market.
“Although a lot of people are still working at home, many employers and facilities managers will already be considering how they can safely accommodate people back in the workplace when the lockdown ends.
“This system is safe, secure, simple to install and cost effective, and is readily available. It’s a solution that can play a small part in helping kick-start the economy, providing protection while they get on with their work.”
Paul added that Onduline will be donating £10 from each processed order to NHS Charities Together, https://www.nhscharitiestogether.co.uk/, which collectively represents charities supporting NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients.
