Unicel publishes industry white paper to help optimize patient healing environments


Unicel Architectural, manufacturer of vision and daylight control solutions, published an industry white paper that examines the issues and solutions for employing window and door treatments to help improve patient spaces and healing. “Designing Window and Door Treatments for Improved Patient Outcomes” reviews industry research and identifies key requirements for the control of vision, noise, heat and light. It further details and compares applicable solutions available in the market today.  

“Healthcare facilities managers and designers often turn to us for insights and recommendations on building elements to help them create more patient‐centered and sustainable spaces,” said Jean‐ Francois Couturier, CEO of Unicel Architectural. “This white paper was developed to provide a guideline for design considerations around patient privacy and the control of various elements that may impact their ability to heal effectively. It considers key industry research and available solutions so that architects can make informed design decisions.”

Hospital design and architecture can play an important role in a patient’s recovery and well‐being. Since the early 1990s, a number of studies have examined how hospital design and architecture affect patients and healthcare workers, and the results make a compelling case for design geared toward optimal patient environments.
