Wrights Plastics invests £1m in virus barrier
Wrights Plastics Group, award-winning acrylic manufacturer of retail design solutions and industrial parts and components, has reallocated its manufacturing capacity to bring to market Sneeze Screens — a customisable cough screen and sneeze guard virus barrier solution immediately available to all businesses.
Wrights Plastics Group has invested nearly £1m in substrate, which will be periodically delivered to ensure a steady flow of material. The company's 47,000 sq ft factory is now rendered a COVID-19 protection manufacturing plant, while the team continues to produce and take on their usual business.
With heavy investment into the virus barriers, the company has seen 50,000 Sneeze Screens leave their West Midlands-based factory alongside 4,000 hand sanitisers since the beginning of April.
The Sneeze Screen 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.
These screens offer businesses that require human contact such as pharmacies, banks, restaurants, hotels, gyms, doctor offices and clinics, the ability to limit exposure and reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread between people.
James Ivison, Senior Relationship Executive of Wrights Plastics Group, commented: “As the UK economy begins to reopen, it is extremely important for businesses to protect employees and customers as they return during the ongoing pandemic. We have developed a solution that allows customers and employees to feel safe in the workplace.”
