To maintain social distancing standards, we can implement a bending rail down the spine of your application. This could be the fix you need in keeping your open plan functional. Along with a pendant or trolley storage for extra protection and privacy. As a result, these formations naturally keep individuals apart, to maximize your space and ensure productivity.


Providing safe yet friendly social spaces to rebuild a sense of community will be critical for workers returning to the workplace and help find comfort in the beloved meeting spaces.
