RECEPTION DESK SECURITY SCREEN FOR SCHOOLS​

PROTECT STAFF FROM PARENTS & VISITORS​

Violent incidents in schools continue to rise in Australia
Australian schools are facing record levels of bullying, threats and abuse from parents. The Australian Catholic University (ACU) undertook a study in 2018 that showed 1 in 3 principals have been threatened with violence by a parent. In the survey of primary and secondary school principals, 21 per cent reported having been bullied by a parent which has doubled since 2011, thus making parents the bullies in the school yard. Some of this abuse can occur at the reception desk or admin area of the school office and this is where our security screens can help protect staff.

 

La Trobe University researched “teacher targeted bullying and harassment”, or TTBH and in its survey of 560 teachers it found nearly two-thirds had been recently bullied by a parent. This was found to be more common in primary schools, with younger, female teachers the more likely victims. The most common form of bullying was verbal with a parent yelling and arguing on behalf of a child. Physical attacks by parents on teachers weren’t very common but there was just over 8% that had reported a parent standing over or invading their personal space with another 1 per cent had been hit or punched by a parent.

 

Putting a physical barrier in the reception area, administration office or even the school canteen can help protect teachers or other staff at a school. Our reception desk security screens can be adapted to suit any existing environment. Our range of security screen products can suit different applications whether it is for complete protection or to also enable receiving documents or payment.

The strongest reception desk security screens available
Our reception desk security screens can be adapted to be used in offices that have a public reception area whether they are commercial, utility or government. Our security screens can suit applications that have high volumes of public facing interactions where physical or verbal abuse may be a potential threat. Our screens can provide the required visibility to enable staff to conduct their duties while being a physical barrier between them and members of the public.

 

Where can reception desk security screens be used?
As you well know, a reception area is a common transitional space that will typically be welcoming, feel secure, practical and be functional to help greet or direct visitors. Sometimes it can be quite difficult to solve all of those problems but our expert design team have solved many of those types of scenarios for facilities like hospitals, schools, hotels, offices or even community centres where there’s also a service counter requirement. For public facing desk areas it can be quite important to creating after hours security measures to protect computer terminals, phone systems, visitor systems or other sensitive equipment.

We make it easy for an architects to integrate our reception desk security screens into a new property build or an existing location that already has counter areas. We have access to a wide range of materials, patterns, finishes and even colours that can help our security screens to blend into or even enhance the design aesthetic of your project. Our team will expertly mix robust, durable materials like aluminium, steel and polycarbonate to create a custom made security screen solution.

 

How functional can a reception desk with security screens be?
Reception areas are actually quite complex spaces which will have various functions they have to perform such as;

  • Visitor access control for things like identity verification, issuing passes or even security scanning.
  • Information access by the public for finding directions or getting files and records.
  • Package delivery and rerouting if the building doesn’t have a mail processing room.
  • Phone line monitoring if a separate communications room isn’t an option.
  • Line up management for visitors to know where a line starts for ticket processing or similar
  • Financial transactions that are done either with or without cash registers.
  • The main egress where the reception area is the main point of egress for employees as well as visitors making it hard to monitoring of traffic by staff.
 

It is possible to have a reception desk security screen custom designed to cater to these scenarios and our designers explore these areas prior to doing any site measurements or prototype mock ups.

WHAT IS A RECEPTION DESK SECURITY SCREEN MADE OUT OF?​

BEWARE OF CHEAP MATERIALS LIKE PLASTIC OR ACRYLIC, WE ONLY USE POLYCARBONATE SUBSTRATE

Polycarbonate

250 times tougher than glass & virtually unbreakable
We only produce reception desk security screens out of high impact polycarbonate substrate which is up to 250 times tougher than glass and virtually unbreakable. Polycarbonate will not shatter and can withstand high velocity impacts from objects or people. Apart from being a much stronger material, polycarbonate is actually lighter than glass which makes it easier to be used for anti jump barrier applications from design to installation. There other material alternatives that are available on the market include acrylic which is cheaper than polycarbonate, sometimes by 30%.

Beware of using plastics
Although beware – while acrylic and polycarbonate are two of the most popular clear plastics they have very different benefits. Acrylic may look ‘shinier’ & might be cheaper to buy but it can crack or shatter under impact as it is a more rigid material. Even more important to consider when getting quotes is the fact that it is only about 10 times stronger than glass thus nowhere near as strong as polycarbonate. Another factor many people don’t consider is polycarbonate is highly resistant to chemicals such as petrol or acids which adds to its ability to provide protection from things other than objects.

Maximum protection
This is why for all our 
bank security screen variations we only use polycarbonate substrates to ensure you receive maximum protection for you & your staff with a material that will withstand most impacts while most likely not needing to be replaced in the case of an incident occurring. Our team can ensure the framework compliments your retail bank location with choices of custom made selections from stainless steel, steel or aluminium depending on the environment it is being installed into

“We chose to only supply the toughest materials like polycarbonate to ensure every location and its people receive the ultimate protection”
