Our Silentia Screen System achieves optimal hygiene and infection control with smooth and solid surfaces that are less susceptible to trapping infectious bacteria than privacy curtains. Our privacy screens are made with materials that withstand all disinfectants used in care settings today and can be instantly cleaned in-place and without additional labor. Our screens feature high quality wheels that keep dust and hair out, and that can be easily removed and washed separately.
Patient privacy screens are one of ten critical risk areas for infection in the closest area to the patient in health care, therefore, equipment must be easy to clean to reduce the risk of infection. The Silentia Screen System makes it easy to meet hygiene requirements thanks to recessed hinges, wipe-clean surfaces, and wheels that can be removed and washed separately. In fact, an ATP test before and after wiping down a screen shows that a microfiber cloth moistened with a little water is enough to remove organic material. Each care provider must decide which disinfection methods are best suited for them.
We have designed the Silentia Screen System to be flexible to allow staff to work without intruding on their workspace, equipment, and tasks. Our screens take up as little space as possible without obstructing ceiling hoists and other equipment and can be mounted on a wall, wall rail, or on a floor pole. We also offer mobile screens and bed-end screens for increased flexibility and mobility. Silentia’s EasyCare functions makes our screens ergonomic, lightweight, quick to use, and easy to handle. EasyReturn™ reduces contact with a screen by providing a single touchpoint and memory hinges for easy folding with just one hand. EasyClean™ describes how our screens are durable and able to withstand all types of disinfectants.
In the event of an emergency, staff may require more space around the patient for personnel and equipment. The Silentia Screen System is designed to fold quickly and easily with one hand. The single touchpoint handle makes them easy to push closed or pull open, so they are practical in everyday use and easy to fold in an emergency. The patented folding system—EasyReturn™—ensures that screens fold back into place easily and correctly, regardless of size or length.
The furniture, lighting, colors, and equipment in hospitals should be chosen to enhance the atmosphere to improve working conditions for staff and healing for patients. The Silentia Screen System combines practicality with good design. We offer various colors and artistic panels that enhance both the mood and healing influences of a room, including Daylight screens, which let the daylight through the top of the panels while still providing privacy.
In the hospital setting, patients are often in uncomfortable and vulnerable positions, therefore, a privacy solution must help protect patients by minimizing unwanted intrusion. The Silentia Screen System is available in a range of heights, lengths, and mounting combinations to provide the best possible privacy. The various color and image panel options contribute to the overall harmony, making patients feel more relaxed regardless of their age.
The Silentia Screen System helps mitigate the risk of changing circumstances and future uncertainties by offering adaptability and mobility. Our screens can be moved or reconfigured if more space is required for additional equipment around the beds or if a department is relocated. Our EasyClick™ technology offers versatility so that our screens can be moved or extended. In addition, our screens have a long product life, so a Silentia solution is an investment that is flexible, future-proof, and financially sound.
