Freedman PPE Supplies Protect In Public and Shared Spaces

Freedman Seating, transportation’s #1 supplier of seats and safety solutions develops new products to help fight the spread of germs in hotels and hospitality, medical, commercial and professional buildings and places of worship.

Last April, Freedman Seating Company, with essential manufacturing in Illinois and Indiana, introduced a new line of safety products intended to help curb the spread of germs on commercial and mass transportation. Today, Freedman is proud to announce the development of PPE for public spaces.

“There is nothing more important to us than to protect the safety and well-being of our employees, business partners and America’s economic infrastructure. Every decision we make and action we take keeps those principles in mind.” said Dan Cohen, President of Freedman Seating. “Our team is proud to develop and manufacture PPE to help keep America moving, responding and delivering hope.”

Freedman Passenger Sneeze Guards on Ford Transit Seats

Freedman’s Passenger (and Public) Protective Equipment, or PPE, includes several products that have been tried and tested in public places:

Passenger Sneeze Guards – Made from a clear, soft yet durable vinyl that is easy to replace, easy to clean, and UV and Mildew resistant. It is mounted at the top of a passenger seat, behind the passenger’s head, providing protection from sneezes, coughs, droplets and other airborne person-to-person threats and germs. These guards can be easily added in the field to existing Freedman passenger seats or Ford™ Transit Wagon passenger seats. A safe solution for hotel, medical and community transit needs.

Social Distance Seat Bands – Communicate social distancing restrictions with a durable seat band, wrapped around any seat designated “Do Not Sit” in English and/or Spanish. These antimicrobial bands can be applied to any seat application in a vehicle, waiting room, office building, lobby, venue, etc.

“Adding PPE is a significant step forward in improving safety and trust within our commercial and professional spaces at a time when attracting and retaining customers is extremely tough,” said Cohen.

This new line of PPE products represents another major benchmark in Freedman’s 125-year history as an innovator of seating and safety solutions.
