Creative Solutions from Ghent

whiteboards

At Ghent, we provide communication and collaboration tools that help all types of facilities communicate, collaborate and learn. During this difficult time in the world, we are here to support our partners and customers by providing custom, creative solutions for dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are all searching for creative solutions to help decrease the spread of the disease while continuing to operate - and we know our partners and dealers need solutions quickly. Our products are providing the extra margin of safety needed to continue to operate during this time of physical distancing. We saw the need for partitions and separation in our office and facility. Not only do we need these safeguards, but thousands of businesses who are taking the same steps to encourage social distancing are looking for creative solutions.

We evaluated our materials and resources and produced a double-sided whiteboard divider partition to create private work areas. These partitions are easily transportable, and its wide base provides stability. Ghent’s divider is an option for quick install where temporary walls may not work. Use the partitions to delineate offices, create privacy between workstations, or create temporary modular space. When temporary separation is no longer needed, the whiteboard partitions can be easily shifted and reused to facilitate group learning and collaboration.

The partition has a combination double-sided magnetic porcelain-on-steel writing surface and vinyl tackboard privacy panel. The non-porous writing surface is resistant to scratching, ghosting, and staining. Both are easily cleaned and disinfected as needed. Featuring an anodized aluminum frame, the whiteboard partition is available in two sizes to fit any need or environment, from corporate to classroom.
