With the continuing changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Northern Nevada businesses are finding new and innovative ways of keeping everyone safe while maintaining their day-to-day operations. As social distancing continues, it’s important for businesses to understand how to make the best of these practices.
One of the most important aspects of social distancing when inviting the public into your building/facilities, are glass and plexiglass barriers. Most businesses are utilizing glass barriers in some form or another right now. Temporary solutions may be the best option in some cases, however in others, the best way to ensure the safety of your employees and customers while fitting a cohesive design into your building, is to install permanent glass fixtures.
As it stands, we’re not sure how long these pandemic protocols are going to be in effect, and regardless of legislation, there is a good chance that members of the public and the employees that interact with them may not feel comfortable working or shopping in an environment with the way things were prior to the pandemic. Because of this, it’s a good time to explore options that feel like they are part of the overall décor, and not just haphazardly strewn together or look ‘temporary’ in nature.
Currently, if you have glass that is in need of repair, that is a good place to start. Instead of simply replacing panels, it may be worthwhile to explore some new designs that increase the amount of glass between the public or between employees. The nice thing about glass is that you can maintain an open feeling environment while adhering to social distancing.
A more permanent solution is also going to add a feeling of ‘normal’ to your business. Nothing interrupts the natural flow of customers going about their business than an awkwardly placed barrier that doesn’t fit into the décor of your business. By incorporating some decorative glass designs, you can keep everyone safe while ensuring your customers and employees feel more relaxed.
