Even as the UK starts to emerge from lockdown, there’s no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the everyday lives of all of us and will continue to have an impact on daily life as the restrictions ease.
Here at AB Print Group, we are continuing to work while following government guidelines to keep our staff and customers safe.
How can printed graphics increase safety?
We will still face challenges after lockdown and this means adapting to follow increased safety measures.
AB Print can help with the following solutions:
One-way flow of pedestrian traffic is important to maintain public safety in the retail environment (and other areas too as lockdown restrictions are gradually relaxed). Directional arrows offer a highly effective, low-cost solution.
Help customers, staff and visitors maintain correct two metre distancing with rugged but inexpensive floor graphics. From simple ‘Stand here’ spacing to branded messages of support, we can help you to follow safety guidance with the correct two metre measure.
This is a time when information is key as we all adapt to new situations. Leaflets and flyers can carry messages of reassurance or provide guidance on new procedures and requirements in order to maximise the safety of everyone visiting or working in a building or facility.
Hi-vis vests/jackets provide the wearer with authority and give others the reassurance of knowing that someone is responsible for monitoring and managing safety procedures. We can provide a full range of branded clothing including hard hats.
Clear protective screens have become essential in supermarkets and retail environments. Now with more retail stores starting to open to the public again, protection screens are another measure you can put in place to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission. We can provide freestanding or fixed options, printed with any brand or message, for reception desks, retail, hospitality, public buildings etc.
The use of lightweight, inexpensive cones enables areas to be closed off and access controlled in shopping centres, public buildings etc. We can also provide restriction cones for outdoor use that are designed to be weighted down with sandbags.
Dedicated info stations in foyers/reception areas – complete with masks and hand sanitising facilities – are a likely next step as COVID-19 restrictions are slowly eased and we can supply complete units as well as traditional display/POS units.
Branded walkway barriers are the perfect way to create safer queuing conditions or to divide spaces to reduce risk. We can supply bespoke or off-the-shelf systems for indoor or outdoor use, or produce retrofit graphics for any existing aisle divider system.
Banners are a highly visible medium for directional instructions, health advice or reminders of the importance of social distancing. We can produce banners for indoor or outdoor use, and can also supply fixing accessories such as hanging kits for suspended ceilings.
Window graphics are a high-impact medium for providing information and guidance to help keep customers, staff and other visitors safe – or simply to let people know you’re open for business! We have products for inside or outside use.
