With everything that has happened in the last few months - the dreaded COVID word brings worry and frustration for both our health and our economies...business as we know it at Exhibit Studio has also changed for the short term. We have no trade shows or events to keep us busy this spring. We have had to adapt to find new ways to use the tools and equipment we have sitting waiting impatiently to get going again.
When the talk of "Back to Business" in May started, the team felt that we could put our equipment that has been sitting dormant for April to good use and help other Businesses where we could.
We knew that floor decals and signage to highlight social distancing measures would be an easy pivot for us with our in-house print department to make turn around times quick.
But, we also have a custom production shop with a great CNC machine that gives us the opportunity to provide even more safe guards to the businesses who can't always keep the 6ft distance required for their transactions. Moving into sneeze guards, also called protective shields would be easy for us to manufacture.
Looking around at other how other Plexiglas and Lexan sneeze guards or protective shields looked, we felt we could do a better cleaner design with a less intrusive installation.
We started to design ways to make protective shields that were easy to pack, install, and sturdy while keeping costs down by using thinner material.
We chose to use Lexan for its ability not to crack when bent or drilled into That was important for our design and how it locked together without the need for mechanical fasteners.
We were excited when the final prototype design was complete,
