Antimicrobial Privacy Curtains – Must-Haves in Hospitals and Clinics

 

It took many years for Louis Pasteur, who first proposed the germ-theory of disease, to convince physicians to wash their hands between patients. Hand washing is now standard practice, but unfortunately washing privacy curtains between patients is not possible. This is not without consequences: a study in the American Journal of Infection Control showed that hospital privacy curtains are rapidly and frequently contaminated with pathogenic bacteria, including antibiotic-resistant strains, or so-called “super bugs.”

 

ANTIMICROBIAL CURTAINS ARE THE ANSWER

Luckily, this same research group looked into the use of privacy curtains treated with antimicrobial agents and had encouraging findings. Use of such curtains delays and reduces contamination, which can increase time between washing curtains and decrease infection transmission. These curtains are the new must-have for hospitals, clinics, and physicians’ offices.

WE’VE GOT ‘EM!

Our Sundance Antimicrobial Privacy Curtains ensure patients’ privacy and safety. They are commercial-grade cubicle curtains treated with an antimicrobial agent that inhibits the growth of bacteria.  Don’t let the technical description fool you; these panels will blend with any interior design theme and are available in 12 fabric colors with 11 coordinating mesh colors. The fabrics are machine washable or dry clean, and flame retardant.

 

YOU’LL KEEP ‘EM

Our Privacy Cubicle Curtains are built to last. Their durable, quality construction can stand up to the rowdiest patients and toughest charge nurses in a hospital, clinic, care facility or lab environment. These privacy curtains have a triple thick 1.5 inch header reinforced with a middle layer of nylon mesh, and feature grommets of two-piece, rustproof, nickel-plated brass on 6-inch centers. Safe-T stitching in hems and seams makes them practically tear-proof. These panels can be mounted on our Privacy Cubicle Curtain Tracks,  which are available in heavy duty, ceiling mount, and flexible track options.
