Morley Glass has launched ScreenView, a new system designed specifically for hospitals, medical schools and other health and social care facilities.
ScreenView balances the need for patient privacy and observation, allowing for switching between the two at different times of the day. It has two layers of wide slats arranged in a ladder style, which move up and down to provide an open view for observation or complete closure.
Unlike vision panel flaps and externally mounted blinds, ScreenView blind requires no cleaning or maintenance, other than routine cleaning of the control knob. As an additional safeguard, the blind’s control mechanism is protected with a sanitized antimicrobial coating to help with infection control.
Safety is optimised further when ScreenView is coupled with certified fire rated glass in insulated glass units.
The system is fully compatible with designs in line with Approved Document B in England & Wales, as well as the equivalent regulations in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Managing director Ian Short said: “ScreenView gives specifiers and facilities managers a new option for controlling privacy and shading in healthcare environments that allows other important design objectives such as fire safety, hygiene, infection control and aesthetics to be met. We can provide specialist specification and design guidance to help achieve the right solution using ScreenView, as well as the other integral blind solutions in our Uni-Blinds portfolio.”
