Modular Wall Systems Provide Dynamic Options in Healthcare Facilities

Prefabricated solutions help to improve flexibility, infection prevention and patient privacy.

eGlass switches from transparent to frosted at the touch of a button, through the use of a low-level electrical current that stimulates microscopic particles within the material. According to Anthony Branscum, Vice President of Architectural Sales, “Healthcare clients who install LC Privacy Glass in patient care areas typically remove cubicle curtains from those areas. Now they don’t have to take the curtains down and put up new curtains as they move the patients out,” he says. “They’re able to simply wash the glass down with their normal disinfectants, and they can move patients in and out of these rooms more quickly.”

LC Privacy Glass makes it easy to switch between patient visibility and privacy in areas like intensive care units, which place a high demand on each. The opaque and transparent settings are useful for distinguishing occupied and unoccupied exam rooms in clinics or urgent care settings. The material also has been installed in pediatric settings to make the experience of care more comfortable for young patients. In back-of-house areas, Meeting Rooms and Offices with eGlass can be set to private when needed, or left clear for a more open aesthetic that encourages collaboration. Both settings allows for natural light flow. “Most designs these days want to connect interior spaces with one another,” says Branscum. Health Facilities Management
