About Social Distancing Screens

social-distacing-screens-joe-bonnar-metalcraft-donegalJoe Bonnar Metal Craft Ltd was established in 1992 long before the idea of social distancing screens and after the first ever ‘Irish Forge In’ took place in Letterkenny Co. Donegal.

Contacts were made at the Forge In and the company identified a growing demand for authentic designer metalwork with architects and designers for members of the Vintners Associations and Restaurants Association.

Partnerships were formed with top influential designers and architects in Ireland and we started securing and completing projects all over the country.
We then developed a relationship with the international Irish Pub Company, backed by Guinness, and started getting business in the export market.

The integrity and craftsmanship of our products and quality of our work attracted business from all over Ireland and from abroad i.e. Britain, continental Europe, USA, Australia, and Asia. Designs from Paul Haffey Design are always a huge success. Our carefully crafted and well-designed metalwork features in Hotels, Pubs, Restaurants, and public buildings all over the world. These clients are now ordering social distancing screens because they look so good.
