Aluminium profiles for COVID-19 protection screens

1 May 2020 Other technologies

Rexroth aluminium profiles from Tectra Automation are used to safeguard personnel across a range of industries and numerous applications. The durable composition of these profiles and their adaptability to suit any application makes them ideal to help prevent the transmission of Covid-19 from airborne particles. This is done by using the profile and screen as a barrier between customers and shop personnel or between colleagues in a work environment.

As these profiles are assembled with T-slotted joining grooves, and do not require welding, they can be fixed or mobile, U- or L-shaped, and are not limited to size. The system’s modularity and adaptability allows for an easy upgrade from an L-shaped to a U-shaped enclosure in minimal time.

Constructed of acrylic, toughened glass or polycarbonate material, the screens ensure durability and provide a reliable protective barrier to keep people from getting too close. Screens are additionally anodised treated, which creates a high resistance to chemicals that are used to clean and sanitise surfaces. With these features, they are suitable for various settings practising social distancing.

“The adaptability means it can be used in numerous retail outlets, from pharmacies to grocery stores – practically any place to help provide distance between employees and shoppers,” comments Jonathan Narainsamy, product manager at Tectra Automation. “This reduces the risk of transmitting the coronavirus in work environments or businesses that deal directly with the public.”
