Faced with the challenges of the Covid-19 virus, customer dining preferences have radically changed. When choosing a café or restaurant, a customer asks themselves whether it can provide a Safe Zone?
What is a Safe Zone? It is a place that adheres to international hygiene standards and follows the WHO (World Health Organization) guidelines for social distancing - a Minimum of 2m is recommended for cafes and restaurants.
With governments around the world starting to relax lockdown restrictions, outdoor dining is being recommended. This is the result of credible research showing the low risk of virus transmission in open spaces.
When planning the re-opening of cafes and restaurants it is imperative to consider seating capacity, while generous table spacing meets the distancing requirements, it also reduces patron capacity. Panora Kinetic from Libart provides a safe outdoor dining solution without the need to reduce seating capacity.
Libart Kinetic windbreak systems are vertically retracting railing systems for outdoor applications. The tempered single-pane glass functions as a transparent barrier to create a Safe Zone, a balcony railing and a windbreak system without any profile sections in the middle. Kinetic systems provide all the benefits of a hygiene barrier and a glass railing, with the addition of a wind and rain shield when required.
Panora Kinetic is a system that is flexible enough to cater to every space. It is available with a fixed base or from a portable flower box. The aluminum frame and glass assembly result in an ultra-durable solution. The glass barrier can extend up to 185cm providing comprehensive hygienic protection.
Benefits of Panora Kinetic to create a Safe Zone:
- Fast production and delivery
- Durable for outdoor use
- Easy to operate
- Sophisticated, minimal aesthetic
- Easy to install
Kinetic systems utilize a hidden self-charging piston system that eliminates the unsightly counterweights, thick profiles, cables, and pulleys that are used in the industry. Kinetic opens manually and closes automatically with a simple touch. To open, push down the top sliding frame at any time to enjoy the view. Libart Kinetic systems do not contain any horizontal profiles, providing a continuous view.
The telescopic wind-break systems come in two variations:
- KU-FB - Telescopic Wind Breaker Glass railing w/ Planter (Portative)
Panora - Kinetic FB systems are designed portable with an integrated planter. The planter bears the load, obtaining resistance against wind.
- KU-FC - Fixed to Ground Telescopic Wind Breaker Glass Railing Systems
Because the Kinetic FC is fixed to the ground, it provides high wind resistance and extra safety.
