Screens for social distancing
Screens can be used to create protective barriers within offices, without creating oppressive “fortresses”. Existing screen layouts can be added to or new layouts created based around social distancing requirements.
There is no definitive answer to the question “What height should barrier screens be?” The main function of barrier screens is to protect against coughed or sneezed airborne droplets, which are relatively large and fall from the air, due to gravity, within a short distance.
We suggest that 660mm above desk height provides an appropriate barrier against airborne droplets between seated people, and floor standing screens 1895mm high an appropriate barrier between standing people (or a standing person and a seated person).
