covid-19 shields and temporary power solutions

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our manufacturers have begun producing new products, aimed at helping to fill the recent need for certain safety items. In an effort to help get these products to those who need them, we’ve listed the current available products and would love for you to share them with anyone /any business that you think can benefit from them.

The two main categories are EXM’s counter shields and Legrand’s temporary power solutions.


EXM counter shields

In an effort to help protect our frontline workers, EXM is now manufacturing a polycarbonate counter shield which aims to reduce the exposure to the virus and other contaminants. This protective screen forms a physical barrier between your front-line employees and your customers.

They offer 3 customizable designs to suit all types of needs and can manufacture the product in three days. These can be used anywhere that a protective barrier is needed between an employee and the public, including grocery stores, hospitals, retail stores, etc.
