Product Description

Patient privacy and tranquility are top priorities for healthcare facilities to reduce stress and promote healing. Recent studies have shown that excessive noise, glare and lack of privacy can create stress in patients of all ages, which significantly impedes the healing process. More and more healthcare design professionals are specifying design elements that promote privacy and tranquility – all while underscoring hygiene. These trends include:

• A desire to better manage privacy with easily adjustable vision control options in patient rooms, nurses’ stations, surgical areas etc.
• A desire to better manage or filter light from external sources (for both interior and exterior windows) to reduce glare and optimize thermal efficiencies.
• A move toward improved air quality and away from curtains and blinds that collect dust, are not hygienic and require regular cleaning/maintenance.
• A desire to better attenuate sound for optimal tranquility.
