MONTEREY – With businesses searching for ways to protect their employees, Monterey-based Cumberland Container used its expertise to design and create an innovative product to help them do just that. The result is Social Distancing Easels, corrugated panels that serve as screens for employees and customers, providing protection on each side and maintaining distance per CDC guidelines.
Since COVID-19 only lives on corrugated surfaces for 24 hours, transmission risk from corrugated board is very low, according to the New England Journal of Medicine. This makes corrugated surfaces the perfect materials to be utilized in shielding for both industrial and retail settings, according to company officials.
Cumberland Container’s easels are custom cut and printed to fit a company’s work environment. Contact Cumberland Container at 931-839-7976 for more information or to place an order.
