Hospitals are no longer the dark and dreary places that we have come to know and despise. Instead they are now being designed with a clear emphasis on improving space and promoting the feeling of airiness.
Thanks to this much needed change in design, modern hospitals now consist of open plan layouts, that span across multiples levels, and are capable of letting in natural light to create the air of spaciousness.
Using glass products and in particular glass staircases has helped to facilitate this change in order to create less intimidating and easier to navigate hospitals.
BENEFITS OF INSTALLING GLASS STAIRCASES IN HOSPITALS
There are many benefits to installing a glass staircase in a hospital, many of which revolve around the safety of patients as they navigate their way around the different levels of the hospital.
Other factors include the ability for a glass staircase to significantly improve the aesthetics of a hospital. Using toughened glass balustrades as part of the staircase design provides an incredibly strong and durable solution that is aesthetically pleasing on the eye.
As with any aspect of hospital specification, bespoke glass staircases must be custom designed to meet the individual needs of the environment. Early engagement with a specialist as part of the design team will ensure that the end result maximises safety, infection control, durability and aesthetics, all within budgetary constraints.
