Workplace Products to Greet the Next Phase with a Smile
An artful sanitizer station and modular divider systems from B+N Industries bring safety and good design to reopened offices and public spaces.
As businesses around the country begin to contemplate reopening their doors and welcoming back customers and employees, designers are rising to the challenge of quickly refitting offices, restaurants and public spaces of all stripes. Fortunately, manufacturers like B+N Industries are stepping up with sanitation solutions that also prioritize good design.
Seeing the need for a sanitizing station that held a high volume of sanitizer, B+N Industries developed their own. Sanitizing stations are by now a familiar sight at restaurants, grocery stores, and public places around the country, but B+N’s model goes above and beyond. Designed to hold two-gallon bottles of sanitizer, the High-Volume Sanitizing Station holds eight times more sanitizer than others on the market, which rely on smaller packages that are more expensive, less environmentally friendly, and must be replaced more frequently. In addition to the single gallon ready for use, it features a locked door that houses a back-up. B+N estimates that the unit will pay for itself in 6 months by using gallon containers instead of smaller packets.
During this frightening time, a splash of color and engaging graphics helps put everyone at ease. Welcome the return of your customers, visitors, or co-workers by choosing from one of seven standard powder coat colors or customizing your sanitation station with your graphics or branding. Keep a lookout for new offerings as we commission some of our favorite artists and designers for special editions.
As businesses scramble to transform their offices to conform with social distancing guidelines, they are reorganizing workstations, erecting barriers, and even changing their hours of operation. While it’s vital to limit people’s physical interactions to prevent infection, B+N believes that its vital to maintain an open and emotionally connected aesthetic. At the same time, the need for a quick solution precludes most businesses from completely redesigning their offices. The Sorbetti System with Spanning Panels is a modular kit of parts that combines translucent materials, clean lines, modularity and reconfigurable design with easily cleanable surfaces, and, above all, easy installation. The Sorbetti System can also be outfitted with a wide variety of shelving and cabinet accessories; this way they become more than simply dividers—they evolve into walls that work.
B+N’s Cable System provides yet another modular system to reconfigure the workplace environment. Available with frosted acrylic and custom-printed panels, the Cable System ensures that separation doesn’t mean isolation.
As businesses around the country prepare to reopen, they are doing so in a changed environment, one where safety and hygiene are top priorities. Simple solutions like B+N’s High-Volume Sanitizing Station, Sorbetti System, and Cable System can help make our newly reopened offices and public spaces safer and more welcoming.
