7 Tips to Help You Safely and Successfully Reopen

7 Tips to Help You Safely and Successfully Reopen

Normal activities like shopping, working, playing, learning and worshiping have changed dramatically because of the coronavirus pandemic. How can businesses, schools and others reopen safely and effectively during this challenging time? We have some great suggestions.

Below are 7 tips for a safe reopening. Every signage material mentioned can be customized to showcase your unique brand, creating new opportunities for your enterprise to revive and thrive.

Tip #1: Clearly direct the route.

The term “wayfinding” refers to how people navigate and experience your space. Wayfinding signage can safely guide customers and visitors through your environment so they can find exactly what they need. Clear directions will help people feel comfortable and safe and allow them to have the best experience.

Instead of putting up that ugly, frightening yellow caution tape, think about how you can use wayfinding signage. It’s an effective and easy option. For example, FabriTac provides an adhesive fabric that can be mounted to any surface and moved many times. AdventureScapes is another excellent option. This 100% polyester, adhesive-backed material is tear and wrinkle resistant with an excellent anti-slip rating for wet and dry surfaces.

 

 

Tip #2: Use seat covers to support social distancing and advertising.

“Where do I sit?” is one of the first questions people will ask when certain types of facilities reopen. Seat covers can be used on public transportation, in classrooms, sports stadiums and more to clearly show where to sit to maintain social distancing.

What about those empty stadium seats? You can use seat covers to fill those empty seats with advertising or other messages to provide additional revenue and visibility for your brand. Seat covers can be simple self-adhesive signage or full seat covers made out of fabric or PVC material. Take a look at some real-life examples.

Tip #3: Hang banners to deliver big messages.

Banners are a great way to provide instructions or motivate patrons. Banners can be used to show support, draw attention, indicate new hours and business practices, and remind customers of safety rules. Take a look at some vibrant, high-quality banners made from Ultraflex materials:

 

Tip #4: Provide instructions, guidelines and more with stands and displays.

Freestanding displays are an eye-catching option for conveying messages indoors and outdoors. If you need to create a pop-up display inside a mall or big event, you may want to consider our SuperSmooth™ PET GreyBack product. If you need a smooth and flat roll-up display, one of our Bravura products may be the perfect solution. Here’s a neat display a high-traffic area:

Tip #5: Use floor graphics to step up safety.

When you reopen and people walk through your doors for the first time in months, what will they see?

Creative and compelling floor graphics can safely guide people through your facility. They can also help visitors and customers keep a safe distance when waiting in line to buy tickets, check out, take a tour, or place and pick up orders.

Here are some excellent examples of stunning floor graphic visuals:

Tip #6: Take full advantage of the outside of your facility.

Even before people enter your facility, they may need to know important information. Storefronts, sidewalks and stairs are ideal places to use directional signage as part of your reopening strategy. Window displays can alert people to special hours of operation or other helpful information. Other instructional signage can clearly direct traffic flow.

If you are thinking about directional signage, you’ll want to choose the highest-performing material for your project. Explore options like UltraVision Window Perf and FabriTac.

Tip #7: Use dividers and face shields for added safety.

Interacting with customers and students is a necessity for many organizations. Safety dividers help protect store workers, hair dressers, teachers, restaurant patrons, office workers and others who must interact with people every day. Whether you need a sneeze guard at a store counter or a large protective barrier, products like AcryliFlex can provide a transparent, durable surface to create safe spaces and allow for social distancing.

Face shields can add an additional layer of protection. Our PETG material used in face shields is lightweight, has an anti-fog component and is structurally sound.

There’s one more thing.

Reopening may be one of the biggest challenges you’ve had to overcome. But there are opportunities you don’t want to miss. We can help you choose media solutions for your environment that help you communicate with your patrons, while representing the powerful brand you’ve worked so hard to build.

We have the knowledge, expertise and products to help you open safely and deliver important messages to students, staff, customers and fans. For more information, email info@ultraflexx.com.
