Big Bear help hair stylists get back to work with a Handy Screen

Member News

Big Bear Plastic Products has designed and manufactured a protective screen especially for use in hair salons, to assist with a safe return to work for both customers and stylists. 

Representing 11,000 salons across the UK, The Hair and Barber Council says politicians are taking too long to give salons permission to open. Salons have been closed since 24th March and many are now ready to open for 15th June. 

However, with social distancing measures still very prominent, salons are having to implement these measures in the workplace. 

Big Bear Plastics stepped up to the challenge when a client required a divider they could move around easily, something they could sweep under, and that looked good enough for a retail environment. 

The screen, consisting of a lightweight, powder-coated steel frame, with a transparent plastic panel on wheels, creates a partition between the clients whilst they are seated at the individual styling stations. 

The base of the screen has been specifically designed to minimise any potential trip hazard to the client or stylist, with a wider base at the front for stability and a narrow base at the back. 

This effective partition screen can be used as the customer requires, with bespoke sizes available. The screens can also be customised with a logo or image and used in any venue where screening is required, such as cafes and gyms.
