Hospital Wall Protection
Only the Best for Your Medical Building
Hospital Wall Protection
Medical facilities are difficult environments to maintain. Hospital beds and other equipment often have to be moved, and these heavy items can regularly slam into walls. Patients struggling with medical problems can sometimes act violently or even intentionally try to damage a facility. Corrosive chemical agents can also be a problem in some areas.
The bottom line is that a wide range of medical facilities really take a beating over the years. Consequently, walls, floors, and other surfaces can depreciate rapidly if they are not built in the right way and protected with proper maintenance. Our company specializes in strengthening medical facilities to protect them against damage that will inevitably occur over the years. Read on to learn how you can protect your medical facility and patients with modern hospital wall protection solutions designed for today's medical environment.
Unique Challenges With Maintenance in Medical Facilities
Since medical facilities are regularly exposed to damage, they require routine maintenance and often need to be repaired. Unfortunately, maintenance is not an easy task in the medical environment. Doing maintenance can create dust that can damage specialized medical equipment while potentially endangering patients with certain medical complications. Maintenance can also create noise that can irritate patients. Sometimes, adhesives or other chemicals have to be used, and these products can necessitate removing patients from at least one section of a facility.

The bottom line is that upkeep in a medical facility often leads to significant downtime. When hospitals have to shut down their operations for even a few days, significant amounts of money can be lost. Additionally, medical facilities need to be available on a reliable basis. When medical facilities have to be shut down, the overall quality of care can be substantially reduced while potentially creating life-threatening risks for members of the community.
Designing Protected Interiors for Medical Facilities
Our company specializes in using professional techniques to improve the quality of interiors for medical applications. In particular, we are specialists at using the right mix of available products to protect walls, ceilings, floors, and other key areas in medical facilities. Our solutions substantially reduce facility depreciation while speeding up the process of doing maintenance or building improvement projects.
Using the Right Finishes
One key technique is to use durable finishes that are textured to cushion shocks. These finishes are made of abrasive materials that help to hide abrasions and scratches that can accumulate over time. Additionally, the materials used in these finishes last for a long time since they are designed to not chip or delaminate, yet they still meet HTM 05-02 fire code regulations.
Protecting Walls and Door Frames
Another technique involves attaching impact-resistant sheets to doors, walls, and other objects that are commonly hit with large medical equipment. This protection can be achieved by attaching a series of impact-resistant panels to walls and doorways. These sheets are designed to absorb common shocks better than an ordinary wall, and they can also be replaced quickly when they wear out over time. In fact, these sheets are so easy to remove that maintenance can usually be done without any disruptions to ordinary medical facility operations.
Wall protection services usually need to focus on corners since these areas are most vulnerable to damage. To prevent damage, stick-on corner guards can be used. In areas subject to heavy abuse, aluminum retainers can be used to provide a strong level of protection. Aluminum is ideal for corner guards because it can be designed in a way that enables it to bend during strong impacts that could lead to injuries.

Maintenance is particularly challenging in medical facilities that often need to be available 24 hours a day. The medical industry is highly regulated, and existing laws usually require patients to be removed from an area before maintenance can be done. Therefore, even small interior improvement projects can result in substantial operational interruptions that are infeasible in many cases.
