We all went through one summer with COVID-19. What will this summer look like? Restaurants are ready to reopen outdoor seating for their customers. But just how safe is that? Our sidewalk partitions can make the perfect addition to outdoor patios for restaurants. They are easy to move around, weather-resistant, and offer protection other than spacing out tables in an open-air environment.
Most of our product line can be used as sidewalk partitions. Table and chair seating is the most common outdoor seating we have seen, which is why you should take advantage of our partitions. Not only are they heavy-duty, but they are lightweight. Don’t let the “heavy-duty” get to your head. We design all of our sidewalk partitions with thick, yet lightweight commercial-grade plexiglass. We design them with durability and strength so you can continue to serve customers in peace and reassurance.
They also have standard caster wheels welded to one side of the base for easy moving, too. Bricks, sidewalks, wood decks, and cobblestone are no obstacle for our sidewalk partitions. These wheels are also inset to reduce tripping hazards for your customers and employees and have a low profile of two inches, which meets egress requirements.
In addition, their position on the base of the divider is so that the wheels are only engaged when the frame is tilted to approximately 20-30 degrees. We want to make your restaurant’s patio quick and simple to rearrange.
Protective Coating Layers on our Sidewalk Partitions
Connect Partitions crafts our partitions from scratch, as you may already know. We use commercial-grade plexiglass and powder-coated steel as the base for added durability and one hundred percent transparency.
We coat them with an AR MR coating, which improves durability against sun damage and prevents scratching as a result of daily cleaning and sanitizing. Bleach, and other harsh cleaning products, are always in use in restaurants. That’s why our sidewalk partitions are highly durable to withstand any damage.
On the other hand, AR coating is an antireflection coating whereas MR coating is a flash mirror coating. Both of these are made to really help the restaurant or food industry because of their superior strength and environmentally resistant surface.
We understand they can endure harsh conditions outdoors. From customers to staff coming in constant contact with them, we want to ensure restaurants that they made a good investment for the future because of their structure.
