Product Overview

MEDglas provides a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing combination of a healing environment and functional workspace to support the well-being of both patients and clinicians.

PREFABRICATED WALLS FOR THE MODERN HEALTHCARE ENVIRONMENT

Like a breath of fresh air, sunlight brings a sense of lightness and sophistication that's difficult to imitate but not impossible. The environment in which you spend your day affects how you feel. Take a fresh approach to designing your healthcare environment with this in mind. Ambient LED lighting integrated into the prefabricated wall system helps support the workflow of the healing environment with various color options for different clinical situations. The modular wall system is efficiently used for modern healthcare environments such as ambulatory surgery centers (ASC), OR, sterile processing departments (SPD), staff & patient rooms, and hybrid rooms.

STERIS MEDglas Prefabricated Walls are high-quality, factory-built, and ready to install. The modular walls are designed for easy installation and take days, not weeks. Glass panel walls are fully recyclable, creating a zero-waste solution for your facility.

ULTRA-DURABLE MODULAR GLASS WALLS

The modular glass wall system is built specifically for the rigorous healthcare environment. The specially tempered security glass is also non-combustible and has been tested to withstand even a 9.2 magnitude earthquake. These non-porous, completely sealed walls are well-suited for terminal cleaning healthcare environments and are resistant to most acids and alkalis.

FAQs

How strong are MEDglas modular walls?

The walls are constructed from specially tempered and toughened 10 mm security glass, which can withstand a force of up to 9.2 magnitude earthquakes.

Once you choose the design, can it be changed?

The glass panel walls are easily accessible and can be modified to accommodate new equipment or aesthetic designs if your needs change.

How does MEDglas minimize maintenance costs?

Unlike drywall, which requires frequent repairs, MEDglas™ is also ultra-durable. STERIS’s interior glass walls don’t dent or show signs of aging or yellowing. MEDglas™ modular walls are noncombustible, nonflammable, and resistant to most acids and alkalis.

How does MEDglas support infection prevention efforts?

The prefabricated walls can be installed on a framework or over an existing wall. Its smooth surface does not harbor dust or dirt and can be completely sealed, eliminating the nooks and crannies that can be hard to clean and disinfect.

  • Use a soft, clean sponge, leather, or cloth.
  • The cleaning effect can be supported by a neutral detergent or a typical glass cleaner.
  • The glass is resistant to most commonly used detergents
  • Do not use sharp metal items for cleaning the surface of the glass construction can cause scratches on the surface
  • Using mobile polishing units to repair surface damages will cause major defects in the surface and can negatively affect the stability of the glass. If using this type of device, the safety of the glass cannot be guaranteed
  • Glass can generally be cleaned with regular detergents
  • Chemicals based on alkaline leaches, acids, or fluoride-containing substances may not be used. These can affect the surface of glass permanently.

Recommended cleaning procedure

  • Dry cleaning processes should not be used.
  • Spray plenty of water onto the glass to loosen hard, abrasive particles
  • Clean cloths regularly to avoid scratches
  • Dry the surface with a dry, clean cloth
