Happy New Tier!

Resolutions, predictions and keeping it safe for work

Our first foray into 2021 wasn’t quite what we had in mind, but with another national lockdown upon us, our New Year resolutions should be to stay [anything, but Covid] positive. Firstly, there will be an end to the current coronavirus restrictions. Second, we now have new opportunities to protect our teams who are still in the workplace and those who’ll be returning post-lockdown.

Our predictions for the New Year? The reality is that a tier is for the foreseeable, not just for Christmas. So, put the very best safety and social distancing solutions in place now and your people, partners and visiting public will thank you for putting them first in the post-pandemic workplace.

Two-metre rules, sanitiser stations and Test & Trace check-ins are a given in 2021, but it’s how we interact and perform with safety and distancing protocols that really counts now. Teams still need to collaborate, ideas still need to flow and business still needs to get done.

Barriers not barricades

The best way to protect your staff without compromising on motivation, collaboration and agile working is to fit workplace social distancing screens. Signbox has a great range of affordable protective screens, aka sneeze guards, that make light work of keeping the office looking and functioning as it did in an open-plan world before tiers.

Transparent and discreet and made from clear acrylic or glass, you’ll see no loss of light or space with protective workplace screens, just people and customers who can engage with each other safely and naturally. In the words of the great Edwin Starr, it’s all about eye-to-eye contact.

The Signbox range includes personal protection desk screens that incorporate everything from personal protection screens with eco-positive bamboo bases to almost invisible Clear Guard social distancing screens for desks, receptions, till points and counters. Go flexible with freestanding workplace screens with a choice stylish designs and unobtrusive multi-desk Dropscreen panels and dividers. Go even further with premium tempered glass screens that are sustainable, whiteboard markable and protect against coughs, sneezes and other airborne viruses.

If you’re looking for fully customised, branded social distancing screens to suit all manner of corporate, retail, leisure and healthcare environments, Signbox help. We can design and fit bespoke protective workplace screens that are available with discounts for volume orders too.

Keep it clean and safe for work

It’s never been more important to keep workplace surfaces spotless. Whether you opt for a small lightweight screen or fixed full-height social distancing screen, Signbox protective workplace screens are super-easy to clean, even in high traffic areas. Antimicrobial surface coatings can help reduce the transmission of bacteria even further.

It’s written in your stars

Protecting your workforce and the stars who keep the wheels of your industry turning, even in the most challenging of times, is critical.
