Rising stock

VetroScreen, the new clamped and free-standing desktop sneeze and cough guard from Bohle, has been supplied to the London Stock Exchange by Abbey Glass.

The South Wales glass processor was appointed by the world’s sixth largest stock exchange earlier this year to provide a solution for its central lobby.

Angela Worgan, managing director, Abbey Glass, said: “We’ve seen significant demand from a broad range of businesses who are trying to balance the return to work with the safety of their employees and customers.

“As a material, glass is the perfect solution but people don’t necessarily want to drill and permanently fix into surfaces and substrates, so something that can be surface-mounted or clamped into position is a seen as major plus.”

Available either as a clamped or free-standing option, VetroScreen has been developed by Bohle as a screen solution for hotels, receptions, bars and screen adjacent desks in open-plan offices.

Able to accommodate glass thicknesses of 4mm to 10mm, the weighted desktop version used by SGS Glass Products in Brighton is manufactured in high quality powder coated aluminium and steel with a high-performance adhesive base. This provides a solid foundation for glass screens typically of up to 800mm high dependent on application.

A clamp on version is also designed to be fitted in minutes, sliding over the edges of a desk or table and tightened. This creates a secure fix without drilling for screens typically up to 1,000mm high, dependent on risk assessment.

“In addition to the LSE, we’ve completed a number of installations in hotel lobbies and offices and going into the autumn, demand remains high, with many companies still adjusting workspaces for the safe return of employees,” Angela, concluded.
