DALLAS— August 6, 2020—The Trade Group—an award-winning, event marketing and -experiential design firm—recently launched a new line of PPE products designed to help schools and universities minimize health risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The new PPE line for schools is the newest addition to the company’s line of COVID-19 safety solutions. The line also includes design, printing and fabrication solutions for corporate interiors, restaurants, salons and other public spaces where social distancing is imperative.
Unlike generic PPE products and signage, The Trade Group’s line of personal protection products can be customized with the educational institution’s branding, messaging and other aesthetic elements, so it complements the school’s unique environment instead of distracting from it.
According to Malcolm Gilvar, Chief Revenue Officer at The Trade Group, “We’re excited to be able to offer such a comprehensive PPE solution for schools and universities throughout the US. Since we design, print and manufacture most of the PPE products at our headquarters near Dallas, we’re able to meet the unique design and spatial needs each school requires.”
Providing protective barriers for students and teachers is one of the most important safety considerations schools are trying to address right now. To meet this need, The Trade Group included a vast assortment cloth masks, desk guards, sneeze guards and barrier walls in its PPE product line.
“When you consider that cough droplets travel at about 50 mph and sneezes propel droplets at about 200 mph, adding that extra wall of protection is essential for mitigating virus spread. Our lightweight desk guards for students are also really easy to set up and stay securely in place with sturdy Velcro straps. Students can decorate and personalize the standard white desk guards, and we can custom print larger quantities,” Gilvar says.
The company also offers a wide variety of hands-free hand sanitizer stands, along with the choice of either liquid or gel hand sanitizer solution. The Trade Group can design custom hand sanitizer stations to feature branding, messaging and other unique elements the school would like to include.
The full-service print shop The Trade Group’s North Texas headquarters has been turning out a wide variety of safety and social distancing signage and banners since the pandemic hit earlier this year. These include hanging banners and signs, banner stands, wall signage and directional signage, as well as decals that adhere to floors, windows, barrier walls and mirrors.
The company uses a proprietary material for the decals and directional signage. Says Gilvar, “The material is far more durable than traditional vinyl and adheres to most any surface, including stone, wood, metal and glass. What’s really nice about the material is that it leaves no residue once removed, so it’s easy to relocate or replace the signage as needed.”
