HealthGuard Acoustical Panels

HealthGuard Acoustical Panels

Easy to clean and sanitize, hard surfaces are used throughout Healthcare facilities. Hospital hallways are busy and loud with carts, beds, and people in motion. Hectic corridors and hard surfaces combine to create loud, reverberant spaces that undermine the healing process. Adding absorptive panels will reduce reverberant noise in the Healthcare environment.

After a hospital stay, patients are asked to rate their experience in the HCAHPS survey. The hospital is then graded based on these scores and Medicare payments are reduced if scores are too low. Survey results indicate the “quietness at night” question consistently receives the lowest score.

The Kinetics HealthGuard Acoustical Panel is a unique panel fully designed with the healthcare industry in mind. Adding these absorptive panels to wall surfaces creates a quieter environment for the patient. The panel utilizes a high density (8-9 pcf), low-profile 5/8" or 7/8" thick absorptive core that withstands the impact from carts and other equipment. The acoustical panel is wrapped in a fabric that is both antimicrobial and cleanable with a bleach solution.
