American Millwork & Cabinetry recently partnered with Altitude Marketing, an integrated marketing agency serving technology-focused B2B companies and manufacturers for more than 16 years, to create and install custom desk shields for its Emmaus-based office.
The transparent desk shields, built from high-quality acrylic, represent Altitude’s commitment to finding hygienic solutions that support its goal of returning to in-office work in the coming months.
“Navigating a pandemic with respect to our team’s concerns and hopes about working in the office again presented us with a unique challenge,” says Gwen Shields, chief operating officer, Altitude Marketing. “After realizing we needed a way to respect social distancing in the open office without creating an isolated work environment, we turned to American Millwork & Cabinetry for help. Their sleek and unobtrusive, custom-designed desk shields will protect the health of our employees without interfering with the natural flow of communication in the office.”
The aesthetically-pleasing desk shields, measuring 6 mm thick and 22” high with flame polished edges and powder coated aluminum support frames, were installed by American Millwork & Cabinetry in a single day. While well secured by the aluminum track, the shields can be lifted off for storage when necessary.
“We’re proud to use our diverse talents to help local businesses through the uncertainty of COVID-19,” says George Reitz, president, American Millwork & Cabinetry. “Our desk shields, custom-designed for each office, assist businesses with following recommended CDC guidelines for employee safety in situations where social distancing is not practical.”
