As you can imagine we are getting a wide variety of requests for help in setting up food, retail, medical, health and any other related support business for essential sectors. This has ranged from protection for retail staff to on-site retail installations within NHS buildings.


Things are changing daily and we are working hard to identify specific solutions that can be installed fast, efficiently and most importantly safely.


What Shopfitting Essential Services are available?


Our focus is on providing support for essential services be they retail or health based. We have re-structured our organisation to maintaining a core team to provide on-site support with streamline backup telephone and online support. This allows us to provide essential support and at the same time have as many staff as possible to remain at home.


What COVID-19 protection products are available to help support front line retail staff?


Supermarket and Convenience Store Checkout Protections Screens


These are evolving daily, and a good example is checkout protection screens which we have recently installed across Radstock Co-operative Stores.


Modular Sanitising Units


Another is Modular Sanitising Units which can be deployed where ever needed for staff and customers. These are available via Shelving Solutions Ltd. For more information and ordering either telephone 02380 620555 or email


Coronavirus Signage


We can also supply a full set of directional customer flow floor signage and pop up stands to direct staff into store and towards the checkouts.


What retail shop services are available to help give NHS staff quick and accessible ways to buy food and provisions?


Pop-Up Hospital Convenience Store Unit


NHS staff are working all hours and need all the support we can give them. Innovative solutions such as setting up Pop Up Convenience Stores within Hospital Buildings is one key way to bring the services to them.


One such project being is installed this week (6th April 2020) at Musgrave Hospital, Taunton. The store is in the basement of the hospital so at the end of a long shift staff can pop in and pick up everything they need.


Where can I get the latest information on staff protection and essential staff support products?


As these become available we will be posting information here and on our Linkedin and Facebook pages, plus useful advice and links. So if you haven’t already, sign up to get immediate notifications as they become available.


How do you ensure COVID-19 Health and Safety on Site?


Our primary objective is to protect the people we work with – staff, customers and sub-contractors/suppliers – and stay in constant contact with them all. As is normal business practice, we always follow the UK government guidelines and this will be our first priority on site for both on-site staff projection and that of your staff working alongside them.


How long will it take to install a project for an essential site?


As shopfitters we are accustomed to meeting tight deadlines and working odd hours to complete projects around “normal business” to avoid disruption. We have a reputation for the quality and calibre of our work and the products which means projects are really completed without snags and that means on time.
