BARBLOCK™

Imagine going to a bar or restaurant and having to have three empty bar stools between each customer. With pandemic health concerns and best social distance practices not clear, it seems that bar and restaurant owners will have to have three empty bars stools between guests as the default requirement. Now imagine a new product, the BarBlock, which sits on top of a bar or table surface.

The BarBlock is an innovative shield solution designed to partition restaurant or bar guests and encourage social distancing while providing an enjoyable and more-private dining experience. It’s sleek design creates a barrier between guests sitting next to each other and offers a safe solution for guest interaction.

The portable BarBlock sits on top of a bar or table surface to separate single individuals or small groups of customers. This lightweight solution allows bar staff to easily move BarBlocks from one location to another. If a family of four wants to sit at the bar without social distancing, they can sit together with no barriers between them, but the bar staff will place a BarBlock on both sides of the group to ensure the safety of guests around them.

THE BARBLOCK FEATURES:

  • The lightweight BarBlock consists of a clear, poly-carbonate barrier and a sturdy, counter-weight base that has rubber pads on the bottom to provide stability and prevent damage to the bar or table surface.
  • It’s portable and can easily be relocated or re-positioned to accommodate single individuals, small parties or families who don’t require social distancing from each other.
  • This patent pending design is simple and beautiful.
  • Minimal assembly required. Simply remove the protective paper backing from the poly-carbonate, slide the handle through the hole in the base and screw the two handles together.
  • Clean the aluminum, rubber and poly carbonate with mild glass cleaner and dry with a microfiber towel.
  • When multiple BarBlock’s are placed throughout a bar or restaurant, they absorb and diffuse sound which provides customers with a more pleasant dining experience.

“I’M A PUB OWNER, NOT AN INVENTOR. WHEN FACED WITH NOT BEING ABLE TO FILL 75% OF MY BAR STOOLS AND AS A RESULT, LOOSING 75% OF MY REVENUE DUE TO THIS PANDEMIC, I SEARCHED FOR A SOLUTION AND FOUND NONE. AS I WAS WORKING WITH MY YOUNGEST SON ON A SCHOOL PROJECT, THE IDEA FOR THE BARBLOCK CAME TO ME. I QUICKLY TEAMED UP WITH PELGER ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION AND TAIT TO DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE, THE BARBLOCK. AS THIS PANDEMIC PASSES, I BELIEVE THAT RESTAURANT PATRONS WILL FEEL SAFE AND MORE COMFORTABLE WITH HAVING BARBLOCK’S IN PLACE AS THEY CAN ENJOY THEIR NIGHT OUT AND PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING.”
