In a hospital or nursing home environment, window film can offer an increase in patient comfort and well-being. Overheating, glare, and ultraviolet from the sun are all problems that can be overcome using window film. Rooms, wards all communal areas can all suffer from hot spots and uncomfortable glare during the summer months
Solar Sentry’s specialist window films are designed to reduce solar heat gain and glare without reducing the view through the glass. By reducing overheating, air conditioning requirements can also be reduced. Airborne viruses and contaminations can travel via air conditioning, increasing the rate of infection. A reduction in air conditioning usage would not only mean a reduction in energy and carbon costs, but also a reduction in the risk of spreading diseases.
Window film can help patients in other ways. By reducing 99% of harmful UV, patients are protected against these harmful, skin cancer causing rays.
Glass poses a risk of causing injury when broken; this is particularly dangerous in a hospital or nursing home setting where the patients are potentially more vulnerable. Solar Sentry’s safety window film will keep glass shards in place if the glass is broken for any reason, protecting patients and staff from injury. Find out more about safety and security film here.
Frosted window films can provide privacy to patients and residents without the need for curtains or blinds, whilst maintaining high levels of natural light. They are also far easier to clean than blinds or curtains, making window film a clear choice from an infection control point of view.
