SocialDistancer: COVID-19 Social Distancing PPE

Even during this time of dealing with COVID-19, your employees need to be concentrating on their work, not on who is in the vicinity.

No matter if your employees are at a workstation or walking through the facility, the SocialDistancer™ provides a level of assurance to your employees that their space is being guarded while they concentrate on their work.
