Office Furniture Solutions For The Post Lock-down Workplace


Office Furniture Solutions for the Post-Lockdown Workplace

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you got to put up with the rain.” Never did we think a day like this would come in our lifetime.

This epidemic which took everyone by storm, changed the way we do business, the way we interact with each other and the way we work. Things will change once restrictions are lifted and offices resume and the workforce will fire up their engines to pave the way for India becoming a super economy but office administrations will face a challenging situation of how to manage the workforce within the offices.

Workplaces which were built entirely on the concept of open offices will face the maximum challenges as during this pandemic period close contact between work forces is the last thing any office administration will want. Being in the office furniture industry, we thought of sharing few solutions which might be helpful for offices existing and new to promote the concept of human distancing.

Installation of higher front panels

Firstly, the introduction of wider sized workstations of minimum dimensions of 1500x750mm to increase the distancing between the linear seating arrangements. Installation of higher front panel with height 500 mm or more with non-fabric material as fabric has tendency to soak aerosol particles which may be released when the person sneezes. More importantly, it can be easily cleaned or sanitized by disinfectant soaked clothes or sprays.

Encourage the distancing

Installation of panels vertically across the workstations to encourage the distancing between the workstation. New offices can think of bringing back the panel based systems which creates more sense of enclosed space.

Bristol has many adaptable products such as Artiv, Klug, Decibel 43 that are easy to install and promotes distancing, creating an isolated work space for the user.

Mesh chairs are easier to disinfect

Usage of Nylon mesh based chairs wherein the seating and backrest both are made up of Nylon mesh can easily be disinfected and cleaned without any damage to the material in comparison to the fabric cushion based chairs.
