07 May How IG Blinds is Keeping you Healthy
If there’s a silver lining to the current COVID-19 pandemic, it’s that health professionals and organisations are prioritising hygiene standards more than ever before. At IG Blinds, we have worked with a lot of medical fit-outs and design professionals to help ensure health, safety, and security expectations are met in hospitals, medical clinics, dental practices, and care facilities. In these kinds of environments, internal blind systems can offer major benefits that traditional blinds systems simply cannot. Below we discuss some of these advantages:
In medical facilities, hygiene should always be your number one priority in order to ensure the health and safety of your staff and patients. Traditionally, blinds have acted as a breeding ground for the build-up of various kinds of bacteria, dust, and dirt. However, internal blind systems are completely contained and sealed within the glass panels of your windows, eliminating the possibility of germs and dirt gathering. This allows for a much more sterile environment where dust and grime filled blinds are a thing of the past.
Of course, beyond the fact that they are sterile, internal blind systems also require much less maintenance. This is particularly important in spaces like care facilities and hospitals where you want to limit the amount of interaction that patients or residents have with external people or cleaners. This also leads to less disruption within your facility or business as well as a lot less time and resources being spent on maintenance.
Internal blind systems are very easy to operate as they don’t get twisted, tangled or jammed. This means that if you’re operating a care facility or medical establishment where patients may have reduced motor skills, these blinds will make your facility much more accessible. In the case of a facility treating patients with extremely reduced mobility, you can also opt for a fully automated or remotely controlled internal blinds system to offer easy and convenient control. What’s more, these blind systems are silent which is essential to eliminate the possibility of unwanted disturbances.
Internal blinds offer an optimum level of privacy which can go a long way to ensuring the comfort of patients or residents. In a medical space where patients will be disclosing sensitive information or undergoing private treatments, privacy is absolutely crucial to putting your patients’ minds at ease and making sure that they feel secure. For residents in a care facility, remotely controlled or automated blinds will offer them a new level of privacy and independence as it will mean one less task that they need to request assistance with.
