Simplify Your Safety Needs with AmpliVox Acrylic Safety Shields

Taking steps to protect individuals from airborne virus transmission demonstrates not only that you care about safety but also about respecting your participants.

AmpliVox Acrylic Safety Shields for lecterns, check-in podiums and meetings and conferences not only help protect individuals but they are very easy to install.

Step 1 - Attach mounting rail(s) with included adhesive

Step 2 - Fit Safety Shield
into rails

Step 3 - Secure with included
set screws

These shields come with one or two mounting rails. First determine the placement of the mounting rail either at the center of the lectern table or for a wider lectern with one rail at each side of the lectern table.

Next, pick up the mounting rail, peel the adhesive strip off and put the mounting rail in place onto the lectern making certain to press it down securely. After the mounting rail or rails are set in place, then set the safety shield loosely into position.

Finally, tighten both set screws on each mounting rail with a hex wrench.

Safety Shield S0006 is designed for use in meetings, conference, and hospitality settings. This shield can be placed at appropriate intervals on conference tables so that each individual has protection from others sitting adjacent.

Step 1 - Attach large clamp with hex wrench

Step 2 - Attach small clamp with hex wrench

Step 3 - Securely tighten large clamp to flat surface

The shield comes with two clamps. To install, first put the larger clamp on the bottom of the shield next to it long side and firmly tighten the set screw with a hex wrench.

Next, install the smaller clamp in the same manner, then set the safety shield on the surface. Finally, securely tighten the bottom clamp.

AmpliVox would like to thank rAVe [PUBS] for their ongoing support and coverage at infoComm in that past (2011 - 2019). We are looking forward to seeing them again next year at infoComm 2021.

In the above video, rAVe was very pleased with the performance and use of AmpliVox PA systems at their booth back at infoComm 2013.

Here is what their President, Gary Kayye, had to say:

"At this year's InfoComm show, we selected AmpliVox for our live voice amplification system for rAVe's THE GAME 4 as well as to allow for LIVE listening of our Podcasts in the booth - both worked flawlessly.

Not only did the gear work exactly as advertised - something we don't often see in AV - but the user experience was perfect. It worked right out of the box, kept a charge all day and we never even had to open the user's manual. Bravo to AmpliVox for a truly 10+ customer experience factor!"
