Datum Designs New WorkSpace Shield to Help Improve Workplace Safety Amidst COVID-19
Datum has introduced a new product called the WorkSpace Shield that is designed to help improve workplace safety. The WorkSpace Shield is a plexiglass sheet inserted into an easy-mount base that can be placed on any flat surface to instantly create a non-intrusive physical barrier between people or workspaces.
The WorkSpace Shield’s plexiglass insert is ¼-inch thick and available sizes ranging from 18 x 20 inches to 24 x 36 inches. The black melamine base with 3mm PVC edge uses 3M Dual Lock to quickly mount to flat surfaces such as desks, tables, countertops, and worksurfaces without requiring tools and without damaging the surface. The plexiglass shield is available in clear or frosted and can be removed for easy cleaning. Connector kits are available for multiple shields, and connector configurations include corner, straight, T, and four-way. The WorkSpace Shield is currently in stock, ready to ship, and comes with a Lifetime Product Warranty and a two-year Labor Warranty.
“By modifying an existing product, we created a large, easy-to-use shield that businesses and others in public spaces can use to maintain social distance and help keep employees and customers safe,” said Doug Mucci, Datum general manager. “Remaining agile has been essential in weathering this crisis, not just in relation to the products we offer but also in the way we do business. We’re all adapting.”
Social distancing measures, including wearing face masks and other PPE, have quickly become the norm in workplaces; however, some working environments are simply not designed for the standard six-foot separation between people, and additional measures need to be taken. The WorkSpace Shield helps work environments make spaces safer for those working in close proximity by placing another level of barrier protection between people.
