Envirom Bedhead Trunking
Improving the patient environment is the key driver behind the design of the Envirom bedhead trunking system. The use of integral lighting and coloured fascia panels opens up new possibilities to enhance ward decor.
There is a strong emphasis on improving the patient environment in modern hospital design. The way a patient feels is affected by many factors, including the environment they are in. Careful selection of colour, textures and lighting schemes within the patient environment have been proven to aid the recovery process.
Envirom Bedhead Trunking is supplied with coloured plates, so the bedhead system can compliment any chosen decor, enhancing the patient environment. This makes the ward ambience less clinical, more inviting, home like and relaxing.
Front and side panel fascia plates are pre cut before being sent away for powder coated painting. This enables the panels to be installed next to each other with no gaps, eliminating a potential dust trap and problem for cross infection. Flush mounted electrical components also provide an easy to clean work surface.
