Protective Reception Desk Screens For Dental Practice

Mar 11, 2021

For a recent project we were asked to supply some reception desk screens for a company called Merlin Industrial. Their client, Peartree Lane Dental Surgery in Welwyn Garden City, Herts, were after some protective screens to help keep their staff and patients safe.

  • The screen has been manufactured in 27mm diameter mild steel posts which were powder coated to the clients own colour requirements – RAL9007.
  • The glass is all 8mm thick toughened and has two CNC polished cut outs to the front.
  • The screen is 750mm tall and the glass is 740mm in height, to sit off the work top by 10mm.

All posts have been fixed at the base to the worktop via brass olive inserts. After a site survey we produced full drawings in-house for our client to sign off, prior to manufacture.

The screen follows the line of a curved desk so the curved section had to be manufactured in segments. A site survey and template of the top was done and all angles of tabs on posts worked out to form the curve.


“Merlin Industrial Products have been using Shopkit exclusively for their reception and glass screens. Compared with previous manufacturers they have been both competitive and, most importantly reliable.”
