Last year, we created 18 different Dreamwalls Color Glass Markerboards for a hospital project in nearby Mooresville, NC. These boards were to be used at nursing stations on 3 different floors of a hospital. Previously, they had been hand-lining the regular magnetic melamine dry erase boards with drafters tape and handwriting the room number and header information within the unchanging fields. This led to several problems when things were accidentally erased or difficult to read, not to mention the way the tape would wear out and marks would ghost making the board look dirty after a short amount of time. Nurses are everyday heroes, and the information that they have to work with on a daily basis with must be extremely organized. So how could we help them improve their processes with our Dreamwalls Color Glass Markerboards?
The client had the information they needed sketched out and we created the board verbiage to their specifications. Once they signed off on the artwork, we went to work with our selective painting process. Each color is applied individually, using our proprietary heat-cured process. When they’re all finished, we add the magnetic option and add any additional hanging requests. As you can see, we can get he logos and linework incredibly detailed and crisp.
Each department was able to have the exact information they required, but all the boards helped create a unified look from floor to floor. The lines would never wipe off or get shabby looking. Additionally, the written information could be kept on there indefinitely without ghosting or staining. And what happens, when something is accidentally written in Sharpie®? Well, with Dreamwalls Color Glass it can still be cleaned off with a little alcohol or window cleaner.
And keep in mind, that some of these boards were quite large. BIG. Several were 52 inches wide, 72 inches wide, and even 84 inches wide. But we were up to the challenge. We at Gardner Glass Products really love working with companies to help them solve real problems by using our Dreamwalls products. Most of the nurses probably don’t even notice the improvement,…but that’s okay. Nurses have enough to worry about. So we’re happy to help improve their professional lives,…even if it’s behind the scenes with Dreamwalls Color Glass Markerboards.
