The benefits of hospital blinds

11th May 2021

Window Blinds ofor Hospitals in Doncaster

Hospitals have been installing blinds for centuries. Not only are they easy to clean and maintain but they also deliver outstanding light control whilst giving sufficient privacy. If you are looking for bespoke made-to-measure hospital blinds in Doncaster, Barton Blinds can help. Read on to discover the benefits of hospital blinds. 

How do blinds benefit hospital patients?


Blinds are commonly used in medical environments, not only in NHS hospitals and clinics but in private ones too. Let’s take a look at some of the main reasons why blinds have remained so popular in healthcare environments.

Easy maintenance

Since you can simply wipe blinds clean in most scenarios, it’s easy to keep blinds hygienic and clean. If they become particularly dirty, you can machine wash them. Many blinds are made with special fabric that boasts antibacterial and antifungal properties. This enables them to destroy bacteria immediately. If you require blinds for a high touch environment, antimicrobial blinds may be ideal for your needs. Blinds play a pivotal role in slowing down and stopping the transmission of illnesses in hospitals. Blinds can be used to prevent cross-contamination and help people avoid contracting infections linked to healthcare.

Safe to use 

If you’re based in the medical sector, you’ll have important safety requirements to comply with. Thankfully, we can provide you with robust blinds that help you meet these requirements. These include blinds with cordless manual operation as well as motorised blinds. 

If patients have mobility challenges, motorised blinds should be an ideal match for their needs. They’ll be able to gain full control over their blinds by simply using an intuitive remote control. Some patients may injure themselves if they attempt to control their blinds manually. We offer cordless, compliant and child-safe hospital blinds to prevent strangulation. Our catalogue also plays host to a series of fire-retardant blinds.

Gain more control over light

Hospital Blinds in Doncaster

One of the benefits of hospital blinds is that they give you more control over how much light enters a space. Blackout roller blinds are often used in patient rooms because they can block out all natural light, improving sleep quality. These improvements in sleep quality can enhance physical and mental health amongst patients considerably. Blinds can simply be opened within moments whenever natural light is required again. Artificial lighting can be overwhelming for some patients, and can also be expensive. 

Hospital blinds allow you to reduce your lighting costs and create a more pleasant environment. Venetian hospital blinds come complete with louvres. These can be tilted so you can get the perfect amount of light. Why not get in touch with us today if you are looking for blinds for a surgical theatre or a laboratory? Whether you need to cut down glare or block out light completely, we have the solution for you.

Durable and long-lasting 


The blinds that we supply are designed to stand the test of time. You can expect to receive several years of use from our blinds before you need to replace them. What’s more is that they only require a small amount of maintenance. Our blinds are tough enough to stand up to daily use in medical environments. When you buy your hospital blinds from us, you don’t need to worry about replacing them for many years. If you do have any queries about our hardwearing medical-grade blinds, you’re welcome to get in touch with us at any time.

Deliver greater privacy

Blinds enhance privacy, protect patients’ confidentiality and deliver high discretion. Privacy is an ongoing concern in healthcare environments. If sufficient privacy isn’t provided, sensitive information about patients and their wellbeing could emerge. 

Blinds allow patients and staff to communicate more effectively without the risk of eavesdropping. They are also used to protect patient dignity when intimate examinations are being carried out. Maintain the highest standard of privacy and medical care with our high-quality blinds. Many healthcare environments require total confidentiality. Our market-leading blinds can help you achieve this.

A wider range of designs

It’s important to think carefully about visual appeal when you’re buying blinds for a medical environment. Many hospital patients arrive on-site feeling very stressed and nervous, and these emotions can continue when they’re receiving treatment. We offer blinds in a wide range of welcoming colours to calm your patients’ minds, including bold and bright options as well as neutral shades. 

We can help you create the ideal décor for your medical environment, enabling you to improve moods amongst patients and the staff that are caring for them. Why not browse the site today to see the various colours, designs and styles currently available?
