Rising stock

VetroScreen, the new clamped and free-standing desktop sneeze and cough guard from Bohle, has been supplied to the London Stock Exchange by Abbey Glass.

The south Wales glass processor was appointed by the world’s sixth largest stock exchange earlier this year to provide a solution for its central lobby.

Angela Worgan, managing director at Abbey Glass, said: “We’ve seen significant demand from a broad range of businesses who are trying to balance the return to work with the safety of their employees and customers.

“As a material, glass is the perfect solution but people don’t necessarily want to drill and permanently fix into surfaces and substrates, so something that can be surface-mounted or clamped into position is a seen as major plus.”

Available either as a clamped or free-standing option, VetroScreen, has been developed by Bohle as a screen solution for hotels, receptions, bars and screen adjacent desks in open-plan offices.

“In addition to the LSE, we’ve completed a number of installations in hotel lobbies and offices and, going into the autumn, demand remains high, with many companies still adjusting workspaces for the safe return of employees,” Angela said.
