Shower Curtains that Perform for Behavioral Health Facilities

Comments Off on Shower Curtains that Perform for Behavioral Health Facilities

Gary Manufacturing understands that the needs for suitable shower curtains in behavioral health centers are varied. Privacy, safety, and durability are among the top needs noted for this specialty setting. Gary Manufacturing offers many different options to meet these needs. A combination of our Sure-Chek Linen vinyl, breathable mesh, and breakaway options fulfill many of these needs and allow us to make the perfect solution for all facilities.

One of our customers, a behavioral health center in the United States, contacted us earlier this year with a specific set of needs. After a brief discussion of their specific needs, we were able to come up with the perfect solution for them.

The first requirement this facility had was that it needs a material that is anti-microbial to limit bacteria transmission from person to person. We offered Sure-Chek Linen, a material that has a controlled release system that continually sends the antimicrobial agent to the fabric surface. This built-in protection lasts the life of the fabric and is a perfect solution to this requirement.

Another important requirement for a behavioral center is a shower curtain that is flame resistant. Sure-Chek® fabrics are NFPA 701 certified to resist combustion and will self-extinguish when the source of flame is removed.

Heavy use areas in behavioral centers, prisons, hospitals, schools, and gyms need a durable solution to make sure the shower curtains can handle excessive use. Sure-Chek® fabrics are incredibly strong, withstanding severe wear and use. Extra strength and tear resistance mean extended curtain life, ensuring a cost-effective solution for such an industrial setting.

In behavioral centers, the safety of the patient is of the utmost importance. Using our breakaway Velcro or snap options, patients are unable to harm themselves. This extra protection offers peace of mind to the facilitators as well as meets anti-ligature requirements. Mesh fabric at the top of shower curtains allows the staff to see what the patient is doing while maintaining privacy for the patient. The combination of our mesh fabric and windows allow us to meet PREA requirements many facilities have in place.

Millions of people in the United States are in a facility where they are cared for by staff. Our custom shower curtains are made with patient safety as the number one priority. Our Sure-Chek Linen, mesh option, and breakaway headers make for a winning solution to a variety of concerns. We can help!
