As more businesses prepare for staff to return to work in offices, addressing social distancing, hygiene and creating a safe and comfortable working environment will be of vital importance.

To ensure companies keep staff protected from the potential spread of COVID-19, we have produced an essential information guide on using partitions and screens to support social distancing guidelines.

The FIS Information sheet, ‘How partitioning can help manage social distancing’ provides comprehensive information on the steps required and what should be considered when specifying partitioning and screens in the workplace. It looks at addressing and evaluating the individual needs of the workplace based on staff occupancy, types of partitioning systems along with aesthetics and performance considerations, ventilation requirements, ironmongery and how to organise the installation.

The information sheet describing the ranges of partitioning systems is available from the FIS Knowledge Hub here.
