Since the World Health Organization declared the Covid-19 outbreak a pandemic on March 11, 2020, the disease has brought the need for change in most industries. Front liners and healthcare workers need the right PPE to stay safe. And with schools and businesses re-opening, the demand for personal protective equipment keeps increasing. In 2021, the WHO estimates that the PPE industry has to boost its manufacturing by 40% to meet the global demand. As a result, many local companies are shifting their production to Covid-19 safety tools and preventive gear.
Currently, AGI has diversified from only manufacturing farm feeders, plastic hay rings, and other farm products to PPE due to the pandemic. By getting involved in the manufacture of protective desk barriers (desktop defenders), such companies play a huge role in controlling the spread of Covid-19.
The Essence of Protective Desk Barriers for Schools, Homes, and Offices
Before the pandemic, desk protection screens had the mere use of privacy in commercial settings. Now, these screens aid in minimizing transmission, especially in public environments. When used correctly, personal protective equipment like masks, gloves, sneeze guards, gowns, and protective desk barriers prevent the spread of viruses and germs in bodily fluids.
So, how do AGI’s protective desk barriers limit the spread of the Coronavirus disease?
Why Protective Desk Barriers Are the Way to Go
The barriers have a partition that stops the spread of respiratory body droplets that transmit the Coronavirus. This is possible by:
- Re-imposing physical distance needs even when the wearer is forgetful -– installing the protective desk barrier in homes, schools, and offices is a constant reminder that you should stay safe and make use of PPE at all times.
- Intercepting bodily fluid drops/aerosols, thus preventing transmission.
- Minimizing the need for masks that do not allow for user comfort.
- Reducing shortage of personal protective equipment by offering a permanent solution to social distancing/Covid-19 prevention.
Benefits of Desktop Defenders
There is nothing more vital than the safety of your students, guests, loved ones, clients, or staff. In most cases, a face mask and a bottle of sanitizer do not cut through. Therefore, you have to look for developed protective gear that is suitable for all environments.
First and foremost, AGI protective desk barriers allow for in-person learning or meetings. The product has features that make it easy to use and maintain. For instance:
- Affordable for retail and wholesale purchase
- One-year warranty
- Comfortable for kids
- Lightweight yet sturdy
- Easy to mount (no equipment necessary)
- Always in stock and ready to ship
- Cozy even during warm and humid weather
Additionally, protective desk barriers are see-through and cover the eyes. People with special needs and busy schedules can contentedly use the PPE without experiencing any inconvenience. Since the Coronavirus disease is transmitted mainly via bodily fluids, desktop defenders ensure your eye, nostrils, and mouth are covered. This is not possible with face masks.
Lastly, you do not have to adjust the protective desk barriers as frequently as other PPEs. The lesser the contact is, the harder it is for Covid-19 to spread. You can also wash and re-wear the protective gear whenever you see fit.
The Coronavirus disease is a global pandemic, and to curb it, we all have to prevent further transmission. To do this, contact AGI products and order high-quality protective desk barriers. All the products are made with recycled materials to contribute to a greener environment.
