Something a little different...

17 Nov 2020

We've been working away over the past few months on a little side-project. 

Using the skills we have for creating and maintaining museum exhibits, we've created this simple to use Social Distancing sign, ideal for small shops and other retail units.

How did the idea come about?

We'd been in to a few small retail outlets, where there is a limit on the number of people allowed in the shop. 

But this was usually managed by one of the assistants dashing between the door and the till to stop people coming in, or by shouting from the till - not a great experience for any customers!

We realised that some sort of signage would help - we have the people counting solutions that automatically count how many people are in, but these are overkill, and well beyond the budget of most small shop owners.

So we came up with this - a simple stop/go sign, operated by someone in the shop, at a sensible price.

How does it work?

The sign has 2 lights: Red - please wait here; Green - please come in

It's operated by a simple switch that changes the light from Red to Green and back again.
