Helping the return to schools & offices: 4 screening solutions

By: Category: News

The Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent guidelines have presented all sectors with some unique challenges.  It’s clear there is a need to quickly make your space safe and acceptable without the need for a complete reshuffle! 

Waverley are able to help you prepare your facilities so that they are as safe, reassuring and welcoming as possible, with minimal disruption to your current layouts and space.  We currently offer four different concepts of clear screening, as follows…

ShadeTech® Static Safety Screen

This is a transparent PVC panel that can be hung from the ceiling on steel suspension cables – perfect for hanging between desks.  The screen has a weighted aluminium bottom bar.  The clear PVC is fire retardant and can be wiped clean with disinfectant.   

Example of Use: These have been installed over desks in schools and we have also practised what we preach and installed them over all our office desks at Waverley, which has worked brilliantly!

During the current Pandemic Sir William Perkins’s School (SWPS) needed protective screens installed in our reception area and dining Hall. Due to the size and design of these two areas “Off the Shelf” screens were not suitable so we had to go down a Bespoke design.

The Screens that Waverly installed were, a wind down clear plastic screen in Reception and 7x free hanging screens from a suspended ceiling, in our Dining Hall and Atrium.  

All of the screens have worked perfectly and go a long way to afford protection to Staff, Students and Visitors alike. They also promote a “Positive Safety Attitude” where people feel safe to work and visit the School.

The installs were quick, tidy and professional causing minimal disruption to the normal School routine.

ShadeTech® Panel Glide Safety Screen 

This is a sliding panel screen on slimline aluminium track with options of 3 or 5 panel systems, operated with a simple wand control and with weighted aluminium bottom bars.  The clear PVC is fire retardant and can be wiped clean with disinfectant.    

Example of Use: We have installed this system to screen off a small meeting area to create a quiet office.

ShadeTech® Safety Screen Blind 

ShadeTech® Safety Screen Blind

This is a cassetted retractable blind of clear PVC which is fire retardant and can be wiped clean with disinfectant.  Ideal for spaces where you do want the option to raise the screen when not needed, the blind is operated with either a detachable crank rod handle or a manual chain, and is also available motorised.  The aluminium cassette conceals and protects the clear blind when not in use, and also provides a flat surface that could be used for a company logo or message. 

Example of Use: We have installed these at reception desks and they have a wide range of uses in commercial, education, hospitality and healthcare spaces.

Can I say that the clear PVC screen blinds look brilliant and I am really pleased with them. They are great and everyone has commented on how good they look.

ShadeTech® Free-standing Safety Screen 

This is a sturdy framed screen supported on steel base plates, with the PVC held inside the frame with a zip mechanism which ensures the fabric remains tight.  Very simple to erect on site, and there are options of transparent or opaque PVC screens (all fire retardant and wipeable with disinfectant) with the additional option or branding or messages printed on the screen. 

Example of Use: Ideal for screening of desks and seating areas with the flexibility of quick changes when required.
