The FixiCover Driver Shield, a popular in-car partition that acts as a sneeze guard between drivers and their passengers, is fully compliant with the requirements of Transport for London (TfL).
Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 5th of November, 2020 - Transport for London (TfL), the integrated transport authority of the capital city, has approved the FixiCover Driver Shield to be installed in Private Hire Vehicles (PHV) operating within the area of London. The first confirmed approvals are for a variety of Toyota and Lexus models, approvals for other makes and models are expected to follow soon.
According to the governmental website, TfL has received a large number of applications from private hire operators, individual private hire drivers and suppliers of partitions such as FixiCover. TfL’s role is to ensure the installation of any such screens, and the materials used, comply with government and industry regulations and TfL's requirements as the licensing authority. FixiCover received TfL’s approval after passing a number of tests focussing on a variety of criteria such as flexibility, and impact-, light-, fire- and chemical resistance.
“We are thrilled to have received the approval of Transport for London, and are proud to be able to help create safer environments in Private Hire Vehicles across London.” - Mark van Laar, Founder of FixiCover.
The FixiCover Driver Shield separates drivers from their passengers and serves as a sneeze guard by limiting airborne transmission of respiratory droplets. The screen is easy to install (and remove) without causing any damage to the interior, and the material is 250 times stronger than glass and fire retardant. In addition, the transparent screen is entirely suitable for contactless payments, does not hinder driver-passenger communication, nor does it close off AC-airstream flows completely.
FixiCover Driver Shields are available in Medium or Large sizes and are equipped with additional sizing-options to ensure a snug fit for almost any vehicle. Please visit fixicover.com for more information.
