RATstands Introduces the BioScreen

by | Oct 2, 2020 | Facilities, News

The innovative UK based music equipment manufacturer, RATstands, has used their knowledge of protective screens and diversified their product range to create the Rshield. Developed from their sound protection screen ‘The Acoustic Screen’, the Rshield is a range of products designed to prevent the spread of bacteria and implement social distancing within any workspace or social environment.

RATstands’ Managing Director Glenn Chapman said ‘This pandemic has taught us how vulnerable we are to inevitable future viruses. We need to learn from this and adapt to do everything we can to protect ourselves, therefore we’ve decided to expand our product range to assist people in doing just that’.

Glenn added ‘Unlike other products, the Rshield range is carefully designed to not feel intrusive or intimidating. We want people to feel relaxed in returning to their daily lives, whilst being assured that the need for safety from the spread of bacteria is taken care of.’


Not only does the Rshield support the long-term protection in schools, RATstands have also considered the environmental impact of sneeze screens. The tragedy of the amount of single use plastic that will be thrown away is unthinkable! All Rshield protection screens are made from easy to clean materials and are stackable for compact storage, meaning they can be neatly stored and kept for years to come.

RATstands’ Marketing Manager Olivia Mason said ‘We have been at the forefront of designing equipment for musicians for over 40 years, selling to venues such as the Sydney Opera House and Abbey Road Studios. Our new product, the BioScreen has been uniquely developed so that it can be used in any situation. The screen is portable, height adjustable, stackable, and built with the same quality as our music equipment. I’m excited to see how our design can help our existing customers in the music and education industry, as well as other businesses and industries in need of long-term bio protection.’
