The Cleenscreen system has been designed from the start with infection prevention in mind. Far too many products for the healthcare arena are designed for ease of manufacture. If infection prevention is added at all, is it just an after-thought? This is not the case with the Cleenscreen system. The whole concept has been designed with infection prevention in mind to ensure that the system can be easily and thoroughly cleaned and sanitised. Surfaces are beautifully smooth, enabling quick, thorough and assured cleaning. The panel’s are devoid of microbe-attracting areas and with its unique hinging system the only contact points between the panels are the tiny pivot areas at top and bottom. Even these pivots are easily cleaned. The Cleenscreen system is modular so that the panels can be re-configured to suit any particular application and can be disconnected for terminal cleaning if required. Modularity adds the cost benefit that, if damaged, single panels can be replaced rather than the whole set.
One touch point on the Cleenscreens which will receive constant contact is the handle. This has also been designed as integral to the main surface, so that quick and total cleaning will ensure that infection transmission from this area, which would normally be high, is significantly reduced.
The Cleenscreen system is aesthetically designed with a wave-form profile for a soft visual presentation, to reduce noise levels by deflecting sound and dispersing it and to limit light glare. The system, unlike curtains, has no need of ceiling tracking which is a classic collector of pathogens, looks unsightly and must be designed into the ceiling construction at Architect stage. Cleenscreens do not get in the way of hoist rails, which often are run sideways from one bed to the adjacent one. Cleenscreens are simple and can be retro fitted if required.
The Cleenscreen system runs on a high-quality, medical grade rubber castor which makes the manoeuvring of the system easy and smooth. Each castor has its own suspension to cope with floor irregularities, or door thresholds where required.
Folding and stowage of the Cleenscreens is very easy and the panels nestle into each other perfectly due to their curved design.
To ensure maximum privacy the Cleenscreen system extends both higher and lower than traditional systems. This avoids both intrusion over the top and visible exposure of the floor area around the bed. They have been designed to be over 1900mm from the floor to the top of each panel with a gap under each panel of about 90mm which allows for cleaning of the floor but removes any trip hazard.
