SCG Unveils “SHINKOLITE” To Help Businesses Reduce Transmission Risks and Maintain Their Visual Aesthetics Upon Reopening

Date: 18 May 2020

Bangkok - 18 May 2020 SHINKOLITE, the world-class producer of transparent acrylic sheets, is introducing its latest product: the Acrylic Aerosol Partition, catering to the needs of all businesses and offices that are reopening and looking for equipment to prevent the spread of aerosol and pathogens during conversations or through interpersonal interactions and enforce social distancing in order to bolster confidence and elevate safety standards while not compromising the aesthetic of the location. Made with SHINKOLITE’s premium-grade transparent acrylic sheets, the partition offers great visibility, allows for easy assembly and disassembly, can be installed without drilling, and is easy to disinfect. SHINKOLITE also offers customization and installation services and has given over 30 Acrylic Aerosol Partitions to the Architect Council of Thailand, Ramkhamhaeng University, and Tao Poon Metropolitan Police Station to diminish contact and associated risks at service points.

Siripan Artnonla, Deputy Managing Director, Thai MMA Co., Ltd. of Chemicals Business, SCG, said, “The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has recently eased lockdown restrictions and allowed government agencies and certain types of private businesses to reopen as long as stringent preventive measures are put in place and physical distancing is strictly practiced, which will help prevent a second outbreak. SHINKOLITE recognizes that acrylic partitions are vital for the reopening of businesses as they can effectively reduce risks of infection and maintain the aesthetic of the venue. Currently, the Company has already made the Acrylic Aerosol Partition available for sale and has received overwhelming positive feedback from various businesses, including shopping malls, eateries, and banks. We also offer related services, including partition customization and installation.”

Air Vice Marshal M.L. Prakitti Kasemsan, President of Architect Council of Thailand, stated, “After the lockdown is lifted, distancing, density, zoning, and circulation will become major considerations in space design that will help reduce and prevent COVID-19 transmission. When we talk about “social distancing,” which is a buzzword at the moment, what is being referred to is actually “physical distancing” because we would still want to preserve social connections between people even though they are physically distanced. For instance, people will continue to meet each other, but with a material between them so as to keep them physically apart and prevent direct contact. In this regard, a transparent material like acrylic is a solution that allows people to see and communicate with each other while preventing contact between two people. The Architect Council of Thailand has successfully assembled SHINKOLITE’s acrylic partitions with ease, and they have met our needs in improving safety for both architects and visitors.”

Asst. Prof. Boonchan Thongprayoon, Ph.D., Director of the Institute of International Studies and Acting President of Ramkhamhaeng University, said, “SHINKOLITE’s acrylic partitions have helped maintain and enforce social distancing among students, staff, and visitors at various touch points and thus reduce risks of COVID-19 infection. They also provide reassurance for those who visit service points.

SHINKOLITE’s acrylic partitions offer extra transparency, which maximizes visibility and ensures no adverse impact on visual health, and come in classy, aesthetically pleasing designs. In addition, they are easy to assemble and dismantle and can be effortlessly disinfected with soapy water, followed by a wipe down with a soft cloth. These partitions are also strong, durable, long-lasting, and can be used outdoors.
