Why Smart Spacers?

Today, being in a group, in-person, is a challenge at best. Acrylic dividers are everywhere you turn.

Smart Spacers™ give you the ability to gather together sensibly — whether for business or social.

Designed to seat groups with 3, 4, 5, 6 or even 8 people together.  Better yet, Smart Spacers™ have extra safety features at its core, and even allow for couples to sit together at a social event.

Versatile.

Whether for meetings, business events, social events, weddings, restaurants, retirement homes, country clubs, media/production facilities, corporate use, lunch rooms, and many others uses, Smart Spacers™ allows people to be together while social distancing.

Smart Spacers™ are incredibly flexible. Whether you use all of the panels, some or most … or you need to keep it simple … or you’d like to integrate table decor or lighting … imagination is the only limitation.

So many ways to use.

Nearly Invisible.

The beauty of Smart Spacers is that they’re simple to understand and use. But the most striking aspect of a Smart Spacer, when you see it in person, is that it’s such a clean design — it disappears. You almost don’t know it’s there.  See for yourself: Can you see all the acrylic panels?

CDC, NIOSH, WHO — Standards and Guidance

The CDC, NIOSH and other organizations like the WHO have long-, and well-established methodologies for dealing hazards. The “Hierarchy of Controls” is a system used to deploy effective controls within a group — whether a community, organization, or workplace to identify the most effective ways to control a hazard. Depicted within the inverted pyramid below, the more effective controls are on the large, top side of the pyramid, whereas the least effective controls are on the bottom. This diagram explains the uses the hierarchy of controls to identify the best practices for controlling a person’s exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that has led to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hierarchy of Controls from CDC and NIOSH

A Variety of Shapes and Sizes.

The Smart Spacer is extremely flexible in design and will accommodate a variety of table shapes and sizes, as well as other types of installations. With incredible support for round tables, the Smart Spacer is available in three sizes of six-partition systems, with the largest size also available in an eight-partition version.

Best practices for table dividers include a substantial amount of overhang beyond the edge of the table — and Smart Spacers™ have that feature at the core of the design.  Simply put, just choose your table size and you’ll see information for your choice.

Click to choose your desired table size:

For 60" Round Tables

Medium Size: 24″ x 42″ Acrylic Panels

This size has 24″ high by 42″ panels — which reach 84″ across the table (2 x 42″ = 84″). For a 60″ table, this will have 12″ of overhang off the end of the table. This medium size may also be used for smaller tables as well if additional overhang is desired, or larger tables if less overhang is desired.

 

For 72" and Larger Round Tables

Large Size: 24″ x 48″ Acrylic Panels

This size has 24″ high by 48″ panels — which reach 96″ across the table (2 x 48″ = 96″). For a 72″ table, this will have 12″ of overhang off the end of the table. This larger size may also be used for smaller tables as well if additional overhang is desired.

 

For Smaller Round Tables (or No Overhang on 60")

Small Size: 24″ x 36″ Acrylic Panels

This size has 24″ high by 36″ panels — which reach 72″ across the table (2 x 36″ = 72″). For a 54″ table, this will have 9″ of overhang off the end of the table, and a 48″ table would have 12″ of overhang. This small size may also be used for even smaller tables as well if additional overhang is desired, or larger tables if less overhang is desired.

Flexibile Panel Usage.

Core to the Smart Spacer™ design is stability, with support provided by the rod, base and cap assembly at the center. Not only does this give the Smart Spacer™ inherent strength, it also gives the option of removing some of the panels.  Provided that you’ve secured the Smart Spacer™ with clamps, you can remove up to all but 3 panels on the six-partition system.

See examples (shown without panel overhang for simplicity). 

Freedom to be Creative.

Icon - Flower

Decorator Friendly

The Smart Spacer™ is easy to decorate, and because it’s aluminum and clear acrylic, it matches all color schemes. There are even “Decorator holes” in the top cap for lightweight (only) attachment.

Icon - Lighting

Creative Lighting

Because acrylic sheets transmit light so well, you can use them to your advantage by uplighting the sheets. Or, get creative in outlining the edges.
