The benefits of hospital blinds
Blinds have been used in hospitals for hundreds of years. Not only do they provide fantastic light control and enhance patient privacy, but they’re also easy to keep clean and hygienic, which is vital for healthcare settings. At Boyds Blinds, we supply and install a wide range of made to measure hospital blinds in Nottingham and Newark. We provide a high-quality product and unbeatable service every time. So what are the benefits of hospital blinds?
Why choose hospital blinds for your hospital
Healthcare settings in the NHS and private sectors frequently use blinds. There are many reasons to choose blinds rather than other window coverings. Read on to find out more.
Easy to keep clean and hygienic
At Boyds Blinds, we supply and install hospital blinds that are easy to keep clean and hygienic. Many blinds can be easily wiped clean or even placed in a washing machine. They’re often made from fabric with antifungal and antibacterial properties too, which destroy MRSA and other bacteria upon contact. Commercial fabrics with antimicrobial properties are important for patient rooms and examination rooms, as well as other high touch areas. They’re an important line of defence against transmitting illness in hospitals. These blinds prevent cross-contamination and reduce the risk of acquiring healthcare-associated infections.
Enhance light control
Hospital blinds offer superior light control, allowing both patients and staff to choose how much light enters a room. Blackout roller blinds are useful for patient rooms as they enable the blocking out all-natural light. This helps the patient achieve a better night’s sleep. High-quality sleep can help improve physical and mental wellbeing. At the same time, blinds allow for natural daylight to enter a room. By replacing harsh artificial lighting with more natural light, you won’t just reduce your energy costs, but also create a more welcoming and positive environment. Hospital blinds in the Venetian style have louvres that you can tilt, allowing just the right amount of light to enter a room. At Boyds Blinds, we can also supply blinds for laboratories and surgical theatres. We can fit blinds that filter light to reduce glare or block out light when total light exclusion is essential.
Manufactured with safety in mind
At Boyds Blinds, we understand that healthcare facilities have key safety requirements for window coverings. We’re able to supply blinds that cater to them, providing a solution that meets the distinct needs of your setting. We offer hospital blinds with both motorised and cordless manual operation. Motorised blinds are ideal for rooms where patients are disabled or have poor mobility. Patients can control their blinds with the push of a button on a remote. This ensures they don’t risk hurting themselves by closing them manually. Our cordless hospital blinds are child-safe and comply with the British Blinds and Shutter Association’s ‘Make it Safe’ campaign which aims to eliminate the risk of strangulation by hazardous blind cords. Importantly, our blinds are constructed from fire-retardant fabrics too.
Blinds can help to increase privacy in healthcare settings, ensuring discretion and safeguarding confidentiality. Privacy is so essential in hospitals for a number of reasons. Not only does it protect patients’ dignity and prevent embarrassment or discrimination, for example when personal care tasks are being carried out, but it also promotes more effective communication between the physician and patient. This is essential for quality of care. Blinds enhance privacy in hospitals and other medical settings, with examination rooms often requiring complete confidentiality.
Hardwearing and long-lasting
Hospital blinds are manufactured to such a high standard that they can be relied upon to provide many years of use. Strong and robust, they perform well in challenging conditions, yet they require minimal maintenance. Replacing blinds frequently can eat into your budget. However, you won’t need to worry about that when you source them from Boyds Blinds. We offer some of the highest quality medical-grade hospital blinds in Newark and Nottingham, using the best materials and fabrics. We can supply you with hospital blinds that will withstand the test of time.
A wide range of attractive designs
Attractive and welcoming décor is essential for hospitals, particularly within treatment areas where patients may be feeling stressed and anxious. Blinds can help you achieve an appealing design for your setting, helping people to feel happy and comfortable. At Boyds Blinds, we can offer hospital blinds in a huge range of designs, from neutral shades to bold and bright colours which are ideal for children’s wards. The right décor can raise and stabilise patient and staff moods, helping to create an altogether more positive hospital environment.
