WARRINGTON based Vehicle Adaptations company BAS have launched a range of protective screens suitable for taxis, minibuses, driving school vehicles and other private hire vehicles.
The launch comes as a direct response to the Covid-19 outbreak and the need for people to get back to work and resume their transport services as quickly and as safely as possible. The shatterproof polycarbonate screens improve the safety conditions for both the driver and passengers by providing a head height separation to prevent the spread of infectious respiratory drops.
These screens are the ideal solution for taxi drivers, minibus drivers, care home vehicles, school vehicles, driving instructors and others who are sharing a vehicle with non-members of your household.
There has been a lot of concern with regards to the fitting of such screens and the potential invalidation of vehicle insurance, however these protective screens are made from 4mm shatterproof polycarbonate, not plastic or Perspex and will not pose a risk should an airbag be deployed. The screens are also available with ‘Automotive Homologation’ (which means that the product is certified and satisfies the requirements set by various statutory regulatory bodies within the Automotive industry), and therefore should not provide any issues in terms of insurance.
There are various size screens available for nearly all vehicle models and they are easy to install, with no drilling or specific equipment required. They are easy to remove, so cleaning and maintenance can be carried out with ease and they are suitable to use with antibacterial and disinfectant products. No structural modifications are required and therefore no vehicle documentation updates are needed. The screens are supplied with a compliance certificate for extra peace of mind.
Due to Covid-19, collection of the screens is by appointment only (products can be shipped) and if a fitting service is required, this will be by appointment only.
