The clever folding screen is the foundation of the system, and provides a simple method of screening without closing in.
Some of the features of the screen include the fact that it is always on hand, lets in daylight and is easy to keep clean. There is no need to remove it from the room as you would a standard curtain to clean and disinfect it. The screens can also be installed without getting in the way of ceiling lifts and other overhead equipment.
A more hygienic approach to curtains. Studies have proven that curtains are a source of infection and can not be cleaned regularly and economically. With a hard surface material like the Silentia Screen, the surface can be wiped and disinfected immediately, eliminating the need to remove, launder, and reinstall a new set of curtains.
A Silentia screen preserves the integrity of patients without preventing staff from having a good view of the room and having eye contact with each other.
This is especially important in intensive care and observation wards where staff also need to have a clear view of monitoring equipment.
At the same time it allows daylight to flood into the rooms. Because each screen can be moved to one side it is easy to increase the space around the bed if required for care procedures. If additional space is required, a mobile end screen can also be added.
