Government’s ‘COVID-19 Secure’ Document Recommends Temporary Barriers for Urban Centres and Green Spaces

Posted by Matt Callard on Dec 3, 2020 10:38:41 AM

A new Government document focussing on the design principles for safer urban centres and green spaces has recommended the use of temporary barriers in both areas.

The guidance in ‘COVID-19 Secure: Safer Public Spaces’ is for owners and operators of public spaces in England and aims to keep people safe when Coronavirus restrictions are eased.

Temporary barriers are already proving to be indispensable for companies and authorities across the UK as they seek to enforce social distancing in all manner of situations. The products, which offer an affordable, convenient and extremely flexible solution to the ever changing demands of people segregation under COVID-19, are extensively used to safely manage queues, segregate pathways, isolate workers and help designate seating areas – as well as a host of other uses.

Neil Cox, UK Sales Manager for McCue/Banner Stakes, a leading manufacturer and innovator of temporary barriers says: “Demand for our temporary barriers has never been higher – and we’re proud to be on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19. This government advice is welcome – and outlines what our clients already know: Our temporary barriers are the go-to tool for enforcing people compliance in key areas in order to adhere to Coronavirus
restrictions.”

Temporary Barrier Challenge Met by McCue/Banner Stakes

Posted by Matt Callard on Oct 5, 2020 9:36:35 AM

The reopening of working spaces during the Coronavirus pandemic is presenting companies with a unique challenge – that of ensuring employees and visitors are socially distanced while productivity is maintained.

Procurement in this ‘new world’ is a challenge, with managers having to source new products from a variety of new sources.

McCue – already suppliers to a host of blue chip companies for their fixed, polymer barriers – recently acquired Banner Stakes, a global innovator in temporary barriers.

It’s a move that ensures companies seeking some of social distancing’s most in-demand products – flexible, removable, temporary barriers – can now be supplied quickly and efficiently by a global leader and expert.

Temporary barriers have become indispensable for companies looking to organise and rearrange facilities to comply with social distancing measures. The lightweight flexibility and easy set-up of the barriers allows companies to experiment with layouts and ultimately create the safe spaces they need.

Innovation Prevents Typecasting for ‘Barrier Company’

Posted by Matt Callard on Apr 22, 2019 8:22:18 AM

There was a time when Amazon was known as an online second-hand bookstore, IKEA was a mail-order sales company and Apple made clunky prototype desktop computers before the word ‘smartphone’ had been invented.

Diversification in business is often the lifeblood of a company. Coca-Cola might make the fizzy, dark-coloured soft drink we all know and (probably) love – but there are over 500 other beverages in the company’s portfolio, some of which you will most definitely not have tasted (the Asian market’s ‘Water Salad’ drink comes in five flavours and tastes of, well, salad…).

All of which proves that even in heavy industry, you need to be light and agile when it comes to product development, ideas and diversity – unless you want to become tagged with a name that no longer fits.
