Hygienic Walls Were Important in the Healthcare Industry--Now They're Indispensable
Life alongside the pandemic has become the new normal—hopefully only temporarily. However, an optimistic future outlook does not negate the fact that measures are needed in the present moment to help prevent transmission and flatten the curve.
From Convenient Solutions
Before COVID-19, temporary hygienic walls were steadily rising in popularity because of their versatility and practicality in the healthcare setting. They are simple to install in a variety of configurations, and easy to clean and disinfect. Furthermore, temporary hygienic walls are 100% recyclable with zero cut-off waste, making them a sustainable option.
A Necessary Tool
In the post-COVID world, temporary hygienic walls have come to the forefront as a necessary tool in the fight against the spread. As a Licensed Class 1 Medical Device, our TempWall* system is endorsed for use in even the most stringent sanitary environments, but with the ongoing situation, they are finding purpose well beyond the healthcare field.
In a Range of Settings
With the current need for physical distancing in schools, workplaces, nursing homes, and public spaces, TempWalls are an applicable solution in a variety of environments. Where physical distancing is impossible, the CDC recommends physical barriers to keep people adequately separated. TempWalls can be installed as standalone shields, or employed in bigger configurations; they can be used to temporarily re-purpose areas as big as gymnasiums or stadiums.
The pandemic may not be fun, but if nothing else, it highlights our ability to work together towards a common goal. Our continued efforts are working to help flatten the curve; let’s keep up the fight.
