Responding to current problems with the SmartUnit

The Corona epidemic will keep the economy busy for a while and poses significant challenges to government agencies, businesses and individuals. WSM’s SmartUnit is the solution to some of these problems.

Organizations that are in ongoing operations must balance productivity with health and safety. On the one hand, entrepreneurial thinking dictates that production capability remains, while on the other hand, it must be ensured that employees remain healthy. One infected employee is enough to send the rest of the workforce into quarantine – production comes to a standstill. This challenge cannot be solved by shift work alone.

This applies not only to manufacturing, but to office workstations. The open-plan office is becoming increasingly popular – with the undesirable side effect that it is becoming easier to infect each other. At the same time, hospitals face the task of increasing bed capacity for patients.

WSM’s SmartUnit is the right solution in crises

Whether bus stop canopies, smoking shelters or mobile offices – WSM brings people together. Under the current circumstances, we can offer a solution that separates people: the SmartUnit is a modular system of wall elements that can be used both as a partition or as a closed room system. The delivery period is only one to three weeks, depending on the size.

The SmartUnit offers you many possibilities to react to the special requirements of the current situation. Provide physical separation on your production floor, minimizing contact between your employees. It is conceivable to use a partition wall to ensure that contact between colleagues on different shifts is prevented during shift changes. Or temporarily set up additional office workstations to keep more distance in your offices and minimize the risk of infection.

The limited number of hospital beds presents another challenge. Unused premises, for example exhibition halls, which are empty due to the ban on events, are converted into makeshift hospitals. Here, the SmartUnit enables hygienic room separation similar to that in a clean room thanks to the easy washability of the wall elements.

Possible applications of the SmartUnit at a glance:

  • Partition wall
  • Office space
  • Waiting room
  • Break or changing room
  • Storage room
  • Meeting room


Three arguments for the SmartUnit

A great advantage of this product is the time it saves. The delivery time is short, one to three weeks, which allows you to respond quickly to the new conditions. The delivery is made in a practical recyclable wooden stacking box, which is easily transported to the destination with a forklift or pallet truck. The assembly itself is simple, fast and can be done by your own staff. Thus, there is no further contact with an external assembly team.

The product offers an additional advantage when it comes to hygiene. The elements are made of aluminum and therefore easily washable. This will allow you to regularly disinfect the walls and give pathogens little chance.

The third advantage: the flexibility of the system. The modular design allows you to tailor the product to your exact requirements. Choose from seven different wall elements and the accessory packages for an electrical installation or air conditioning.

By the way: You can just as easily dismantle the system again, set it up somewhere else or change the configuration. React quickly to the changing circumstances and let us advise you.
