In a busy workplace, employees and visitors may need help to maintain social distancing. Physical guides and barriers are an effective solution. If you’re looking for social distancing solutions to improve safety in your workplace, ProExhibits can help. Our step-by-step process is designed to determine exactly what your workplace needs, and how we can make it happen.
Step 1: Initial Consultation
The first step in the process is a consultation. At this stage, it’s all about information-gathering. We need to know some initial details about your business premises and practices so we can get an idea of what your needs are. We can do this in person at the site (Step 2), by phone, or on Skype or Zoom—whatever is most convenient for you.
Step 2: Site Visit
Next, a ProExhibits project manager and accounts manager visit the site. They’ll take photos and measurements, and make detailed notes, to get all the information necessary to design your social distancing solutions.
During the same visit, the team will talk you through your options for each area where barriers need to be installed. They’ll make recommendations that combine your needs with their experience to make sure you get the most practical, cost-effective solutions for your spaces.
If you want to see prototypes of the materials we use in construction, don’t hesitate to ask! We take care to use high-quality materials, from the hardware to our acrylic partitions.
Step 3: Quote
Once our team has come up with a set of solutions, we’ll provide you with a detailed quote for the work. For larger jobs involving more than one area or location, we’ll break the quote down by location. Our quotes include:
- Partitions and hardware
They’re all-inclusive, so there are no hidden costs and no unpleasant surprises after the work is done.
We’ll also provide a detailed set of scale drawings of the acrylic partitions and mounting hardware. This will give you a good idea of how the finished installation will look. These drawings include details such as partition height and length and materials used. Where appropriate, we also include details of any required color-matching to existing materials. They also include locations and dimensions of any cut-outs or pass-throughs that are needed, like cut-outs for speaking holes or pass-throughs to provide access for item exchange.
Step 4: Contract
When you’re happy with the quote and have signed the contract, the team will devise a priority list for installation. This details all the items to be installed and the order in which they’ll be installed.
Using a priority list is particularly beneficial for larger projects and projects that involve multiple locations. Having this information helps us complete the work in a logical order. It also helps you keep your business premises running smoothly while the project is underway.
Step 5: Installation
Finally, it’s time for the installation. For most jobs, we recommend that a ProExhibits team delivers and installs all partitions. Large projects can be completed in phases, if necessary, to minimize on-site disruption.
In some cases, for instance a standard acrylic partition installation, the client may choose to self-install. Even if we don’t do the installation, we’ll provide detailed setup instructions to help you get the best result possible.
Installation in any case, should take no more than a day, unless the project is especially large.
Step 6: Maintenance
ProExhibits stands by its work. We offer a one-year warranty on hardware materials and installation, including posts, screws, and brackets.
The longevity of acrylic partitions is highly dependent on their care and maintenance. This means we can’t offer the same warranty on partitions. We do provide all clients with cleaning and maintenance instructions to help keep acrylic partitions in good shape and doing the job they’re designed for.
