Versare Announces New Product to Protect Healthcare and Essential Retail Workers

New Countertop Screen shields receptionists, pharmacy workers, retail employees, and customers from the spread of germs.

Versare NZ, a portable partition manufacturer in Auckland, NZ, is distributing a new product to help lower the health safety risk of healthcare receptionists, pharmacy workers, and their patients with regard to passing infectious germs. In addition, they have quickly learned that this product has much wider applications for all kinds of point of sale interactions. Versare responded rapidly to this crisis that has hit our country, developing this product within a few days of learning of their clients’ urgent needs. Designed to provide comfort and relief for employees and the patients they serve, the Countertop Screen is a clear acrylic partition that forms a shield to help prevent the direct physical and airborne spread of germs.

The clear acrylic allows for face-to-face interaction while still maintaining separation of personal space. The partition comes with options for the size and type of opening at the bottom, allowing for the transfer of items or payment for transactions that can’t happen through a credit card reader on the customer side of the screen. The Countertop Screen is available in two styles: one with a lower opening for the passing of small items; and the other featuring a framed opening for larger item Point of Sale transactions. The Countertop Screen is ideal for employees working at essential businesses that remain open during this critical time, including pharmacies, healthcare facilities, grocers, and gas stations/convenience stores.

According to the receptionists and pharmacists who have tested the Countertop Screen, this product provides a sense of security for themselves as well as their patients. One product tester said, “I feel better behind this screen. The customer can hear me just fine and I can scan the barcode of products right through the plexiglass. I don't have to touch what they're buying. They just hold it up and I scan.” Another noted, “This allows the customer to feel safer too knowing that they don't have to worry about me coughing on them as well.”

When you order from Versare, you're ordering directly from the factory.
