Public administrations face major challenges in 2021: The largest vaccination campaign in history has to be mastered and the super election year with district, state and federal elections has to be organized in parallel. Flexibility has never been more important. In addition to issues such as vaccine procurement and staff recruitment, it is above all the equipment of the vaccination centers and polling stations that keeps those responsible busy. The organization of these public facilities must meet the respective requirements and provide reliable hygiene protection. At the same time, the aim is to prevent vaccination and voting booths, for example, from becoming unusable after use and therefore having to be disposed of.
Flexible expansion solutions are therefore in demand. With its modular system, MiniTec offers the ideal basis for equipping both vaccination and voting centers according to requirements. Hygiene protection and distance regulations can also be implemented without any problems. The German manufacturer has specialized in workplace design for many years and has now expanded its proven modular system for these areas of application as well.
Everything for secure elections
In times of the Corona pandemic, flexible equipment solutions with hygiene protection and spacing measures for polling stations are urgently needed here. Hygiene concepts must be implemented both for voters and for election boards and assistants. This starts at the reception desk with hygiene station and continues at the tables and voting booths. For this purpose, MiniTec offers furniture for reception areas as well as customizable partition walls with aluminum frames and Plexiglas as effective protection, which are stable and easy to clean. Thanks to the smooth surfaces, these are significantly more hygienic than other materials such as wood. If desired, they can also be equipped with casters, making them suitable for use anywhere. MiniTec supplies both the furniture, the standard protective walls and accessories such as disinfection dispensers, coat racks and information stands promptly.
The voting booths can also be realized with the modular system, with variable table tops or as an ergonomic complete solution for sitting or standing citizens. All voting booths can be easily assembled and disassembled, making them easier to store and transport after use. Speaker platforms for election campaign events are also available. Individual solutions are of course also possible.
Solutions for vaccination centers
Similar requirements apply to the furnishings of the vaccination centers: Here, too, there are reception and waiting areas as well as booths. With MiniTec's mobile partition walls, all the required spaces can be flexibly designed. They can be assembled quickly, have a stable stand and can be easily joined together to form vaccination booths. Particularly important: Because the profile connectors work without drilling, changes can be made easily at any time. Booths can also be adapted in size to requirements during the vaccination phase, for example.
A second life for equipment
Many municipalities are currently already planning with the MiniTec modular system or already have it in use. There are already numerous ideas for the later use of the components; these range from partitions for offices and equipment for meeting rooms to changing rooms for swimming pools or sports facilities. There are hardly any limits to the ideas.
