Benefits of Stainless Steel in Hospital Environments

When it comes to manufacturing products for healthcare facilities, the following is taking into careful consideration:

  • Hygiene
  • Safety
  • Durability

As hospitals have the responsibility of being extremely sterile and safe, high quality materials (such as stainless steel) are seen all over hospitals – for walkers, IV stands, hospital beds, surgical equipment and balustrades. Creating a warm, comfortable hospital environment can be difficult, especially when there are so many rules to comply with as well as budget constraints to consider.

Stainless Steel for Hospitals

The material stainless steel can suffice for hospitals; however, modern stainless steel surface coatings and finishes can be added to the material to ensure maximum hygiene and better aesthetics. This is especially ideal for handrails, grab rails, towel racks and balustrades.

Applying modern surface finishes to stainless steel ensures a smooth finish. Although the aesthetical appearance of a hospital is not a priority, having a hospital that looks clean, clutter-free and modern-looking is ideal for a face-paced facility that people rely on for medical care – you want people to feel safe and comfortable when entering the hospital doors.

Benefits of Surface Coating for Stainless Steel

Maximum Hygiene

Hospitals require a sterile environment; therefore, all surface areas should be quick and easy to clean and keep clean. Nano Ceramic Coating (NCC) creates an anti-bacterial environment as the coating has self-cleaning properties.

Minimum Wear & Tear

Stainless steel coating also increases the durability of the metal. This means that the metal is more resistant to bumps and scratches. This is ideal for protecting surfaces that come into contact with machinery, beds and wheelchairs that are moving around in the hospital.

Available in Different Colours & Finishes
