With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic A&I Manufacturing created the new product “Workspace SHIELD™”. In wanting to contribute to a safer work environment in our community the Workspace SHIELD™ provides protection against the spreading of droplets from sneezing and coughing thus protecting the worker behind the clear PVC shield.
A& I has been manufacturing window coverings for nearly 30 years in the tristate area, employing over 150 workers. A request was asked by a client for a protective barrier to ensure safer work area.
Using the standard automated roller shade and switching to a Clear PVC fabric, the result was immediately apparent. A see through shield that allows the worker to feel safe while interacting with customers.
One happy Client stated: “It’s hard to put a price tag on one person, but if it saves one life it’s worth the investment.” Another interested dealer reached out to us and stated: I'm a window treatment business in northern California, and I am interested in vending your product. Looks like a FABULOUS Idea, and would fit in well with our program, and we really see a need for this.
WorkSpace SHIELD™ is attracting interest from all corners of the country.
