Corridors and main roads in hospitals are subject to a lot of potential wear and tear from cars, beds and wheelchairs. Hospital wall protection tape or hospital wall protection barrier can be used to protect the walls.
Hospital wall protection systems are designed to absorb the impact shock without damaging it, as they slightly compress and bounce back upon impact.
In hospital rooms, it is also helpful to use stretcher bump tape to prevent damage to walls when moving beds. Wall chair guards should be used in designated waiting areas or waiting rooms where chairs may hit the wall.
Densely patterned and reflective wall protection panel systems are not recommended as they may cause confusion for people with low vision.
It is recommended to install foot plates mounted at a minimum height of 400 mm on the doors to prevent damage to strollers and wheelchairs.
Also, corners, joints, and surfaces need to be easily cleanable so that hospital wall containment systems help keep infection at bay.
All materials used for the hospital wall protection barrier must be resistant to shattering and breaking.
