A manufacturer of power and data solutions produced a new partition with in-built power sources to provide safety and connectivity for open workspaces.

Rockford-based Byrne Electrical said last month that it rolled out Powered Fence, a half-space divider, half-power source product that imbeds an electrical outlet into an acrylic barrier.

“Given the current COVID-19 constraints of social distancing, finding ways to keep individuals engaged and connected in open workspaces is certainly posing some major challenges,” the company said. “These social issues, combined with the need to reconfigure many environments in order to accommodate the proper separations needed, have employers, school districts and others searching for the products and expertise to help solve our new space puzzles.”

Byrne said Powered Fence offers a “new way to keep individuals safely plugged into technology — and each other — today.”

Powered Fence is designed with a 24-inch acrylic barrier to meet Centers for Disease Control and Prevention height recommendations while allowing for clear sightlines. It also offers three integrated personal power outlets within easy reach — no sharing required.

“The design is ideal for creating division between individual desks and tables, but (it) is also a great way to convert larger surfaces and conference tables to multiperson work areas,” Byrne said.

Powered Fence is geared toward offices, schools, libraries and other environments struggling to meet new spacing recommendations. The design is meant to help define personal territory while keeping laptops, phones and other devices powered and ready to go.
