Glass is a great surface to use in lab and medical environments. Not only is it able to color coordinate or color-code different zones, but from a disinfecting and sterilizing standpoint, there are few surfaces that perform better. Countertops, backsplashes, walls or showers of backpainted glass can be disinfected using ehtanol or isopropol alcohol, phonolics, or high intentsity shortwave ultraviolet light. These same surfaces can be completely sterilized using chemicals such as Ehylene oxide, ozone, bleach, formaldehyde, or hydrogen peroxide. Depending on the glass installation, steam can also be used to safely sanitize areas.
The ability of Dreamwalls Color Glass to keep areas beautiful and clean day after day isn’t a quality we take lightly, and neither should you. As a designer, start looking at the products in your own interaction with healthcare environments. Touching the same reception desk as dozens of other patients every day – wouldn’t you feel better knowing that the surface can hold up to a myriad number of cleaning methods to keep you safe?
When a surface in medical offices reflects light, adds to the beauty of the space, AND can be cleaned for optimal safety?….why wouldn’t it be the choice most specified?
And don’t forget the other surfaces in the waiting area! Table tops and wall cladding can all benefit from being able to be completely disinfected and/or sanitized.
Or in guest spaces where people can stay connected to their loved ones in hospitals or commons areas of medical offices? this cool little kiosk from Peter Pepper Products features decorative laminated glass, and backpainted glass for the work surface.
