Providing adequate shelter at entrance areas and where patients and visitors are likely to congregate at your hospital or healthcare centre is vitally important. A glass canopy will help to ensure that your patients are protected from weather conditions whilst being treated or visiting your facility.
Hospitals often have a variety of entrances, ranging in size from large main entrance foyers to single or double door entrances for smaller annexes and clinics. It is essential that each entrance has the appropriately sized entrance cover and a glass canopy is an ideal way to ensure that patients and their families are protected from the elements, and are not exposed to the elements unnecessarily as they depart or arrive for appointments or visiting times.
Benefits of Installing Glass Canopies in Hospitals
Glass canopies serve as an eye catching feature as well as adding a level of practicality. They will help to protect patients and visitors as they wait to enter or depart your hospital.
The size of canopy installed around areas where patients and visitors congregate will depend on the size of the entrance, the purpose of the areas to be protected and the degree to which the area is exposed to adverse weather. The mobility of patients will also affect the decision regarding the size of canopy. A safe and dry transfer from vehicle or ambulance into the hospital is particularly important for patient comfort and wellbeing.
