Balance
patient visibility and privacy
Privacy Glass
INSTANT PRIVACY

HOW IT WORKS

  • Translucent glass instantly turns transparent with the application of an electric current
  • Eliminates the need for additional privacy offerings such as blinds or curtains
  • Electronics and mechanics are concealed in the header for a streamlined appearance
  • Requires taller header
  • Watch the video

INFECTION CONTROL

  • 92% of hospital privacy curtains are contaminated with potentially dangerous bacteria*
  • This bacteria on curtains can transfer to clean hands or gloves of hospital workers, leading to potential patient infections

LONG-TERM COST SAVINGS

  • U.S. hospitals see over 1.7 million health care associated Infections each year at a cost of up to $45 billion a year**
  • 1 ICU curtain for 1 year, including laundering is $1,696. That’s $10,176 invested for the 6 year lifecycle of a single curtain**

SPACE EFFICIENT

  • Effectively adds square footage to small ICU rooms by eliminating the nuisance of curtains and curtain rods
