  • Workshop screens-Both Standard and custom, designed to suit requirements.

Train Cab Screens

Train Cab screens

We understand that it is becoming exceptionally challenging to control increased passenger flows on trains as social distancing measures remain in place. To support, we have designed vehicle screens that provide a physical protective barrier on the train. Originally developed to separate driver from passengers, this design can be developed to suit requirements. Safe distancing can be maintained even in enclosed areas. The recently developed train cab screen has been designed to fit the cab of the train, and allow training to commence in a safe environment.

All screens are designed to fit the vehicle, whether that may be car, van or train. 


Safely Screen staff as they arrive to work with the Health Station.

The screen provides a barrier between personnel with a small access point for measuring temperatures. A simple yet effective solution to catch any signs of infection early, and preventing the spread of infection.


The Sanitiser Stand provides easy access to hand sanitiser from both inside and outside of buildings. Placed next to entrances to effectively remove germs from hands before making contact with doors, this reduces the chance of spreading any infections that may be present.

An effective solution to be placed within train stations and other workplaces. 

Temperature Checking

The Handheld Fever Screening Camera provides a safe method of measuring employee temperatures before entering site, catching any sign of infection early and help to reduce spread of infection. Use along with the Health Station for maximum protection.

Automatic Temperature Checking

Temperature Station- Automatic Checking-Fast Deployment Option 

Thermal cameras with high temperature accuracy can help detect elevated body temperatures which may indicate the presence of a fever. High efficiency and high accuracy, thus allowing screening of large numbers of people at a time.
