Social Distancing Office Design and Screens

Office Design

At Glenside we understand that as we return to a degree of normality after this pandemic the need for office design is greater than ever.  As social distancing becomes part of everyday life we realise how our current workplaces are no longer suitable.  Whether you want help to rearrange the desk layout or you want to completely redesign the layout to create one way flows and reduce congestion in high density areas, Glenside will be happy to help.

Social distancing screens

At Glenside, we have worked with manufacturers to develop an screening system specifically with our customers in mind.  Recent studies have shown that open plan offices need to reduce to 15-25% capacity to enable social distancing however we have found that by utilising these screening solutions within our designs we can increase this to 35-45% whilst ensuring all staff are protected.

Currently we have developed floor standing screens for Industrial (warehousing, production lines etc.) Commercial (offices, reception, hospitality, retail and education), Site (Construction) and Medical (hospitals, labs and care homes).  We have also developed a desk mounted enclosure screen for office staff, particularly open plan offices with bench desking.
