Spacestor Introduces Protective Screening System for Post-COVID Office Design
Palisades Vista Prevents Bacterial Spread While Encouraging Meaningful Interaction Among Employees
(New York, NY – June 2020) COVID-19 is transforming the workplace design sector and forcing companies and organizations to modify their office spaces accordingly. Amid changing health and safety regulations and in response to the growing need for flexible yet stylish workspace solutions, Spacestor is proud to introduce Palisades Vista - a protective screening system designed to help employers retrofit their offices safely and efficiently. With transparent acrylic panels and a black metal structure reminiscent of steel-framed windows, Vista builds on the already popular range of Palisades zone dividers offering an attractive, minimalistic solution to limit the spread of bacteria within the workplace, without restricting valuable interaction among employees.
Palisades Vista offers built-in flexibility and a 3-in-1 solution for the post-COVID workplace. The panels in the desktop screens can be easily removed and repurposed into freestanding or mobile partitions to create completely new solutions with a matching aesthetic. The desktop version, which offers protective screening for unlimited adjacent workspaces - can be retrofitted to modify existing desk systems, providing a cost-effective solution for organizations as they adapt to comply with physical distancing guidelines. The freestanding version is perfect for establishing protected zones within an open-plan office, and the mobile version can be wheeled around to offer convenient protection for impromptu meetings and temporary workspaces.
“We designed Palisades Vista with the long-term in mind,” says Nic Baxter, Managing Director at Spacestor. “We have to consider the immediate needs for employee safety and comfort, but in doing so, we cannot abandon our commitment to sustainability and aesthetics. It’s important that we outfit our workplaces with solutions that look great and will endure and evolve with us, rather than products that serve only one purpose and will eventually become obsolete. Palisades Vista is the answer to this challenge, as it can flex and caters to both immediate and long-term needs.”
In addition to protecting employees from bacterial spread, Palisades Vista also provides a solution to combat the loneliness epidemic - an unfortunate side-effect of remote working and physical distancing. The clear panels allow employees to remain physically protected from one another, while also enabling visibility and interaction among colleagues. Palisades Vista provides teams with the reassurance they need to return to the office in a setting that prioritizes safety and fosters culture, collaboration, and meaningful human connection.
Palisades Vista can be customized with accessories like screen extensions, acoustic panels, white boards, sanitization stations, personal storage lockers, and colored panel options. The desktop screens are available in six dimensions - 23.6”x47.2”, 23.6”x55”, 23.6”x63”, 31.5”x47.2”, 31.5”x55”, or 31.5”x63” - and can be built out to create protective screening for 2-person workstations or more. The freestanding solution measures up to 78.7” tall by 47.2” wide, and the mobile version is 68.9” tall by 47.2” wide. The storage lockers can be finished in over 40 available colors, allowing designers the freedom to create custom branded solutions.
