Every healthcare new build or refurbishment


Every healthcare new build or refurbishment comes with its own set of specifications and challenges.  From operating theatres to patient rooms for Dementia care, there is no one size fits all solution.  Sister companies Vistamatic and BetweenGlassBlinds realise that and aim to offer the widest range of customisable privacy options available.

Whether the project requires full sized sliding doors for private bed bays or standard sized exterior windows with noise reduction, BetweenGlassBlinds can create the perfect bespoke product.  The totally cordless integral blinds are hermetically sealed between two panes of glass, and safe from moisture, dust, dirt and odours. They are available in any size up to 2500mm high and 2000mm wide with a range of colour and glazing options.

If privacy vision panels are specified for the project, Vistamatic offers many options to choose from.  The original Vista Max can be manufactured in multiple size and shape configurations, including the unique round Vista Port.  For larger positions, the Vista Max XL is made to measure and allows for discreet observation in a full length panel. There is also the Vista Slide, which allows for lateral movement, and can be placed in scenarios where traditional vision panels would be too large or heavy.  

For specialist situations, customisable Flush-fit panels can be installed where hygiene is paramount, such as isolation wards, laboratories or clean rooms. If patient safety is a major consideration, the Vistamatic Anti-ligature panel incorporates a stainless steel frame and specific operating device designed for challenging environments.
