Check out this safety screen that attaches to your monitor arm and protects your monitor’s surroundings from those behind it

by Brianna Crandall — July 6, 2020 — R-Go Tools, a Netherlands-based provider of ergonomic products, has just announced the timely launch of its new R-Go Hygienic Safety Screen Partition, which is made of recyclable PETG plastic with aluminum frame, for offices. This safety screen is built around the monitor arm, leaving free space on the desk.

As the COVID-19 lockdown is slowly being lifted, the conversation about how to reconfigure the American workplace is taking place throughout the business world, from small startups to giant Wall Street firms. The modern corporate office is renowned for open, collaborative workspaces, in-house coffee bars, and standing desks with room for two giant computer monitors, notes the company.

All employers need to consider how best to decrease the spread of COVID-19 and lower the impact in their workplace. One of those measures is by using the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommended pandemic infectious disease mitigation measure of “social distancing.” Since viruses are often spread via droplets of moisture, such as coughs, sneezes, etc., the six-foot social distance reduces the opportunity for spreading the viruses.

In offices, partition cubicle walls of sufficient height (40 inches or more) can also be used to prevent the cough-produced spreading of virus-containing droplets. Why 40 inches? This is an average seated floor-to-mouth height, explains R-Go Tools. Where employees are seated behind partitions and using all the other recommended precautions, droplet spread will be greatly reduced. If partition cubicle walls are less than 40 inches, another approach to achieve adequate social distancing is to stagger or “checkerboard” placement of employees at workstations.

R-Go Tools has a lightweight solution that will create this partition, and this safety screen can easily be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis. It comes with a self-installation kit and is very easy to install, says the company.

The new R-Go Hygienic Safety Screen is designed to not only help enforce social distancing guidelines, but also to create an overall cleaner and safer environment.

R-Go Hygienic Safety Screens are manufactured in the Netherlands and are modularly designed to fit with the R-Go Caparo 4 and Zepher 4 monitor arms. The screen is also compatible with any VESA-compatible monitor arm.
