Rethinking applications: using tent fabric to protect bus drivers

26/05/2020

Bus screen in city bus

Losberger De Boer has started the production of protective materials for drivers on school and city busses, as well as other forms of passenger transport, such as company vans.

In most countries, plexiglass screens have been installed in most line busses. Apart from the debate whether or not these screens are sufficient to protect the driver against possible corona contamination by passengers (Belgian unions have already spoken out against solely relying on these screens), these screens come with a disadvantage: in case of emergency, the driver is often unable to get away quickly.

Transparent and safe
Losberger De Boer has devised a transparent, safe and easily removable solution to better protect drivers. A transparent tarpaulin screen completely shields the area where the bus driver is seated, as it is connected seamlessly to both floor and ceiling. It is attached with Velcro, allowing the driver to remove it quickly in case of emergency.

Commercial vehicles and smaller buses
This solution is also suitable for smaller buses, such as bell buses, school buses, and company vans. For application in these vehicles, the corona protection screen is made to fit size by Losberger De Boer's tarpaulin and textile specialists.

A few years ago, tarpaulin from Losberger De Boer was used in Germany to create quarantine aircraft, which were used to retrieve emergency workers from areas that had been severely affected by the outbreak of the Ebola virus.

Veilige ‘zone’ voor buschauffeurs dankzij gebruik tentzeil

26/05/2020

Bus screen in city bus

Losberger De Boer is gestart met de productie van beschermingsmaterialen voor buschauffeurs en inzittenden van bedrijfswagens.

In veel lijnbussen is reeds een plexiglas scherm geïnstalleerd. Deze biedt de chauffeur echter onvoldoende bescherming tegen mogelijke coronabesmetting door passagiers. Bovendien kleeft er nog een nadeel aan deze schermen: in geval van nood kan de chauffeur vaak niet snel wegkomen.

Als gevolg hiervan spraken Belgische vakbonden zich recent zich uit voor het plaatsen van een extra, beter afsluitende en eenvoudig te verwijderen chauffeursbescherming.

Transparant en veilig
Losberger De Boer heeft een transparante, veilige en in geval van nood eenvoudig te verwijderen oplossing bedacht om chauffeurs te beter te beschermen. Het betreft een scherm van doorzichtig tentzeil, dat de bestuurder volledig afschermt van passagiers. Het transparante scherm loopt van het dak tot op de bodem en wordt op een meter afstand van de chauffeur geplaatst. Het wordt bevestigd met behulp van velcro (‘klittenband’), waardoor de bestuurder het snel kan verwijderen in geval van nood.

Bedrijfswagens en kleinere bussen
Deze oplossing is ook geschikt voor kleinere bussen, zoals belbussen, schoolbussen en bedrijfswagens. Ook hiervoor wordt de coronabescherming op maat gesneden door de zeil- en textielspecialisten van Losberger De Boer.

Enkele jaren geleden werd in Duitsland zeil van Losberger De Boer al gebruikt om quarantainevliegtuigen in te richten, waarmee hulpverleners terug werden gehaald uit gebieden die zwaar getroffen waren door de uitbraak van het Ebola-virus.

Crea un espacio seguro para tus empleados, cumpliendo el metro y medio de distancia

19/05/2020

Ampliación de oficina

El distanciamiento social es una de las medidas más importantes en la lucha contra el COVID-19. ¿Pero cómo se aplica este principio en tu entorno laboral? ¿De qué modo puedes adaptar tus espacios de trabajo para cumplir con las regulaciones y poder mantener tu empresa en activo? 

Espacios extra para conseguir un ámbito laboral seguro - de forma rápida.

Desde Losberger De Boer, podemos ayudarte a ampliar sus instalaciones para conseguir el espacio extra que necesitas. Nuestras estructuras de despliegue rápido se pueden usar para espacio adicional de oficina, espacio adicional para reuniones, un comedor temporal o incluso una ampliación de tu fábrica. En cuestión de días, podemos comenzar a construir las instalaciones temporales que le permiten garantizar a sus empleados la cantidad de espacio que necesitan para trabajar de manera segura y sin preocupaciones. Hemos de adaptarnos a la 'nueva realidad' de la economía 1.5. ¿Su volumen de negocios depende de la cantidad de clientes o visitantes que puede atender? En este caso, nuestras estructuras temporales también pueden proporcionarle una solución para aumentar su capacidad.

Medidas para el distanciamiento social

Ahora que el distanciamiento social es obligatorio, las empresas deben tomar las medidas necesarias para permitir que sus empleados se mantengan a un metro y medio de distancia de sus compañeros. Las empresas que no puedan ofrecer a sus trabajadores ni el distanciamiento social en las instalaciones, ni la infraestructura para trabajar desde casa estarán obligadas a cerrar.

Ser productivo en la economía de distanciamiento social

Incluso si la epidemia del COVID19 desaparece en las próximas semanas, las medidas de distanciamiento permanecerán activas durante meses. Después de todo, el virus sigue existiendo y se deben de tomar medidas preventivas ante un posible rebrote a gran escala hasta que una vacuna esté disponible a escala global. E incluso si el gobierno decide hacer voluntario el distanciamiento social o simplemente lo aconseja, en lugar de hacerlo obligatorio, es probable que la necesidad y el deseo de distanciamiento social en el lugar de trabajo permanezcan por bastante tiempo.

Está claro que muchas empresas e instituciones tendrán que hacer ajustes sustanciales para ser productivos y que la "economía de metro y medio" debe considerarse "la nueva normalidad" durante al menos varios años.

Trabajar a metro y medio de distancia, ¿es eso factible?

Para muchas empresas, es muy difícil garantizar espacio libre entre todos los empleados o clientes dentro de la infraestructura actual. A menudo, las empresas simplemente no tienen el espacio adicional en la oficina o el lugar de trabajo para permitir que todos trabajen, consulten o almuercen a un metro y medio el uno del otro. Los escritorios deben estar más separados, los pasillos deben ampliarse, las habitaciones y los comedores deben estar amueblados de manera diferente o pueden albergar a menos personas, y así sucesivamente.

Especialmente cuando tiene un taller o cadena de producción, esto puede parecer una tarea inabarcable. Después de todo, se trata de máquinas y equipos que no están destinados a ser trasladados, y los vestuarios y los sistemas de taquillas pueden presentar otro desafío.

La industria hotelera se enfrenta a un desafío particularmente grande: generar la misma cantidad de ingresos, con menos visitantes que pagan, incluso más, para compensar el período de cierre. Los supermercados también tienen que encontrar formas de crear espacio adicional, y lo mismo se aplica a las instituciones educativas. En casi todos los sectores, las empresas están tratando de responder la "pregunta del millón": ¿cómo abordo la nueva situación (la nueva normalidad) sin que tenga un efecto adverso adicional en mi facturación?

Social distancing at work – temporarily expand your office space

12/05/2020

Anova tent structure used as temporary high-end office space

Social distancing is one of the most important measures in the fight against a further outbreak of COVID-19. Therefore, people are obliged to keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters between each other and reduce physical interaction to an absolute minimum. This change of habits has a great impact on people’s social and working lives. However, many companies are facing the current situation without having the capacity and experience to deal with the implementation of required measures on their own.

Temporary space for a safe office environment
Now that social distancing is mandatory, companies must take necessary actions to create a safe office environment on site. This not only includes the distance between employee desks but also the available space for employees to walk within the overall building. Reaching their limits of capacity, companies are forced to temporarily expand their office space in order to secure the safety of their people.

Our quick-to-build structures allow you to create additional space within your venue itself. In practice this is feasible by installing enclosed office, conference, or dining rooms either in existing buildings – according to our hall in hall concept – or as stand-alone space solutions. Lifting functions to a second level with our mezzanine system doubles the floorspace for different purposes. A third option is connecting temporary structures to your current building.

Office space – spread workplaces over the campus
Working in a 1.5-meters economy differs from what we are used to. Rooms may contain a smaller number of employees and places with heavy passenger traffic must be obviated. Both are possible by using temporary space solutions. Our flexible office structures allow companies to distribute their people over their entire site, utilizing any extra space you might have available, from parking lots to lawns or storage areas.

All our structures are modular, which means they can be built quickly (within days), can be tailor-made to maximize the space you have available, and can be scaled up and down easily, to continue to meet your space requirements in these changing times.

Conference and meeting rooms
Even in times of the Corona crisis people prefer to meet colleagues face-to-face if possible to efficiently discuss their work tasks. This forces companies to provide their employees with conference and meeting facilities that are in line with the generally applicable safety guidelines. Our temporary office spaces can help you get the extra room you need. 

Canteens and break rooms
Losberger De Boer offers a wide range of rapidly deployable structures that meet your individual needs for additional space. For instance, our tailor-made space solutions can function as an extension to your company’s dining area. Please find more information about our canteen and break room solutions here.

The ‘look and feel’ of a permanent building
All of our high-quality space solutions can be equipped with additional facilities such as electricity, heating, climate control, lighting, and sanitary units to create a pleasant atmosphere for your employees. Just tell us your needs and we’ll take it from here. We have all the experience needed to help you adapt to the new reality of social distancing at work.

Helping you get back to (the new) normal 
as soon and as safe as possible

Helping you get back to (the new) normal 
as soon and as safe as possible

Aren’t we all looking forward to the end of the restrictive measures? We want to get back to work and meet our colleagues in person, have lunch together. We want to take lectures in an auditorium, not behind a computer screen. But how realistic is the prospect of everything being ‘back to normal’ again soon? Not very. But we can at least help you get back to ‘the new normal’ as soon, and as safe, as possible. 

Losberger De Boer is one of the largest temporary building specialists in the world. Our structures are modular, can be built within days and adhere to the strictest building and safety regulations. They can be connected to existing buildings or stand alone. 

We can supply you with the extra space you need to create a safe working environment, offering you long-term solutions for a safe working environment on short term. 

Our companies and institutions face many challenges following the COVID-19 outbreak, one of which is instrumental to both defeating the virus and restarting our economy: to create enough space for social distancing to be able to work and study in a safe manner. 

Quickly expanding dining hall capacity

For many companies and institutions, guaranteeing free space between people in the cafeteria or dining area alone will prove difficult. Our structures can quickly expand your dining hall capacity, allowing people to keep a 6 ft distance from each other and still enjoy their food and each other’s company. We can build an extension to your current dining hall or place an extra stand-alone canteen on your grounds at short notice. 

Addition space for meetings and breakout sessions

For working life to resume to normal, even more office space is needed. With less people allowed to attend a meeting than before, additional room for meetings, breakouts, presentations and seminars is required. Desks may need to be further apart as well. Losberger De Boer has decades worth of experience in providing office solutions. 

Tailor-made, scalable structures to maximize the space you have available

Like we said, our temporary structures are modular. This means they can be tailor-made to make the most of the space you have available on your grounds; they can even be up to three stories high. After installation, they can be scaled up and down easily and at very little cost, to continuously match your space requirements in these trying and changing times.
