SimScreen in West Bloomfield Township, a developer of portable two-way mirrors created for the education of health care professionals, has reallocated all manufacturing capacity to bring its new line of SeparationScreen to market, a customizable virus-barrier solution available to businesses.
The product is designed to protect employees and customers from airborne, virus-containing droplets caused by speaking, sneezing, laughing, or coughing that could infect those who have face-to-face interactions.
“As the global economy begins to reopen, it is extremely important for businesses to protect employees and customers during the ongoing pandemic,” says Gillian Peralta, president of SimScreen. “We have developed a solution that allows customers and employees to feel safe in the workplace. The COVID-19 pandemic will continue to challenge businesses in unique ways.
“Not only do they have to ensure the health and safety of both customers and workers, they also are grappling with managing an ever-changing regulatory environment. By adding a SeparationScreen to an office or facility, business owners are taking a proactive approach to helping reduce person-to-person spread of the virus and creating a safer workplace.”
SeparationScreen is designed for use in offices, gyms, stores, nail salons, restaurants, banks, pharmacies, small businesses, doctor offices, auto dealerships, veterinary hospitals or clinics, leasing offices, and other settings.
The screens are transparent and made of quarter-inch-thick clear acrylic that is easy to clean and disinfect. They include pass-through windows, and a variety of sizes are designed to fit all desks, countertops, workstations, and tables. The feet have rubber tread strips for stability. Custom sizes are also available.
SimScreen is a division of DiaMedical USA, a multi-vendor distributor and manufacturer of health care equipment and supplies. It has sourced more than 1 million masks for hospitals, fire stations, first responders, and others during the pandemic. The company has also assisted FEMA and state governments with hospital beds, face shields, masks, and other personal protective equipment.
