The door also offers the option of an alternate Curtain side treatment, which provides privacy through an opaque, folding fabric screen.

For patients, there is a very real need for privacy. The same is also true for hospital personnel as it is difficult to tend to a patient lying on a bed without hindering their daily needs or duties. In hospitals, the need for privacy and light control has led to the widespread use of drapes to block light from entering the patient's room. This practice not only limits the ability of nurses and others from seeing what is going on, but also increases the risk of nosocomial infection spread by contact.
Our smoke-rated glass doors are energy efficient, improve moisture control, and still provide the classic look of drapes. When a patient is in a hospital, they are at their most vulnerable. Smoke-rated glass doors provide the same level of privacy, but they keep the air inside. Smoke-rated glass doors are a great way to improve your property’s energy efficiency and provide the privacy of drapes, without any of the hassle.
