The benefits of hospital blinds

Blinds are a great choice of window dressing for medical settings such as hospitals, doctors surgeries, and hospices. As well as offering fantastic light control and privacy, they are also very durable and easy to keep clean. Read on to find out the many benefits of hospital blinds. 

Why choose blinds for hospitals

There are many reasons to install blinds in hospitals and many other medical settings. At Humberside Sunblinds, we supply medical-grade blinds in a wide variety of styles to hospitals in both the NHS and private sector. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of hospital blinds.

Light control

Since blinds provide such effective light control, it’s no surprise that they are the first-choice window covering for hospitals. The ability to adjust the amount of natural light entering a room is essential in medical settings. Complete darkness is often required to help patients get the sleep they need to recover quickly. Blackout blinds are a popular choice for patient rooms and wards since they can block out almost all light. 

As well as blocking out light when necessary, blinds can also allow you to let daylight into a room. Whilst darkness can help patients to achieve better quality sleep, natural light can also be highly beneficial to health. 

Studies show that access to daylight in healthcare settings reduces the average length of a hospital stay, speeds up post-operative recovery, and reduces the need for pain relief. Bringing more natural light into a room rather than relying on harsh artificial lighting is much better for health and wellbeing.

Promoting privacy

One of the biggest benefits of hospital blinds is that they can prevent prying eyes from observing what is happening within a room. With many styles of blinds, their louvres can be cleverly adjusted so they still let in natural light but stop anyone from looking in.

Privacy is essential within hospitals and other healthcare settings. Not only is it vital for protecting a patient’s dignity when personal care is being provided, but also for safeguarding confidential information about their illness or condition. Adjustable blinds are frequently installed in healthcare settings where confidentiality and discretion are paramount.

Improved insulation 

Believe it or not, blinds have excellent insulative qualities. Duette blinds work by trapping air inside the honeycomb cells, making them extremely effective at keeping heat inside a room. This additional layer of protection at the windows not only prevents cold draughts from coming in, but also reduces the amount of heat escaping by up to 49%. 

At the same time, these blinds can keep hospitals cool enough during the summer months, helping to keep patients comfortable and preventing bacteria and disease from thriving due to overly warm conditions. For advice on the best blinds for insulation, talk to one of our team. 

Easy to cleanHospital Blinds in Grimsby

Blinds are probably the easiest window dressings to clean. Often constructed from wipeable materials, a quick wipe down is usually all that’s need to keep them sanitary and hygienic. Some blinds can be placed into the washing machine too. At Humberside Sunblinds, many of the blinds in our range are made using fabrics with antibacterial and antifungal properties. These fabrics can destroy harmful bacteria like MRSA on contact, making them extremely useful for preventing the spread of illness in healthcare settings.
