What are the best cubicle tracks for hospitals?
We all want to get the best value for our money. But the stakes are even higher when you’re purchasing a product to be installed next to sick, vulnerable and elderly patients. So, we wanted to uncover which company supplies the best cubicle tracks for hospitals.
This side-by-side comparison of Silent Gliss products and Applied Products will cover all you need to know about curtain tracks, their designs and their most favourable features!
So, let’s dive in:
What is a cubicle tracking system?
Before we start our comparison, we must clarify what cubicle tracking systems are.
Curtain tracks are metal tracks mounted to the wall or ceiling designed to hang and draw curtains. They are most commonly used in hospital wards to help partition the space and provide patients and staff with sufficient privacy. However, more and more companies are expanding their services to supply leisure and retail facilities with similar systems.
So how do you identify the best cubicle tracks for hospitals? There are several factors to consider when choosing a cubical tracking system. Some of these include: durability, functionality and infection control.
So, now that we know what we’re looking for – let’s compare curtain tracks!
Perhaps the Silent Gliss cubicle divider systems’ greatest strength (and weakness) is that they are designed to accommodate many different settings. These tracking systems are installed in gyms, offices and spas – not just hospitals and healthcare facilities.
Yet, whilst multifunctionality may be a big selling point for leisure facilities, it begs the question: are these universal systems the best option for a clinical setting?
Let’s take a closer look at the product features to assess whether these universal room dividers are the best cubicle tracks for hospitals:
- Bendable tracks to suit any layout (150 mm – 200 mm radius)
- Dust cover strips and antimicrobial coating limit cross-infection
- Ceiling brackets can be mounted anywhere on the track
- Must be installed by a qualified fitter
- Available in a variety of colours/finishes
- Compatible with Wave curtains
Unlike Silent Gliss, the YewdaleMovatrack® 100 Hospital Cubicle Track System we supply is designed with healthcare facilities in mind, ensuring they can confidently withstand the most demanding environments. Premium grade and maintenance-free, it is indisputably one of the best cubicle tracks for hospitals in the UK.
The strength of this system is that its entire design is centred around infection control, making it perfect for clinical environments. With a BioSafe Antibacterial Accreditation, it plays an active role in inhibiting infection and cross-contamination.
What’s more, the maintenance-free design caters directly to the needs of healthcare professionals. How? By saving them a significant amount of time cleaning and changing curtains. With a YewdaleMovatrack®, they can waste less time on maintenance and focus more of their energy on patient care. (Watch the video here to see how cleaning and changing curtains is easier and faster)
Here are just a few of the desirable features of the YewdaleMovatrack® 100 Hospital Cubicle Track System:
- Flat-topped profile, so there is no dust cover needed
- Maintenance-free roller runners, so no lubricant is needed
- Bendable tracks (minimum 300mm radius)
- Press-slide curtain removal points for ease and efficiency
- Biosafe anti-bacterial white powder coating to limit cross-contamination
- Quick and easy to install
- Available in any RAL colour of your choice
- An optional cubicle numbering system
- It comes with a Life Time Warranty
