Profile 22 fabricator, Windows Plus, is fitting infection control doors and privacy screens in Warwick Hospital to support the efforts of the NHS in caring for Covid-19 patients. The doors and screens will enable staff to safely put on and take off protective clothing before entering or leaving wards.
Gary Hampton, managing director of Windows Plus, said: “Like everyone, we have been in awe of the amazing work NHS staff are doing in caring for patients with coronavirus. Having previously carried out work at Warwick Hospital, I got in touch to find out if there was anything we could do to protect and support staff in the hospital at this critical time. When they confirmed the need for infection control doors and privacy screens, we were more than happy to support them.”
Clare O’Hara, managing director of Epwin Window Systems, said: “I know everyone at Epwin Window Systems will be proud to know our systems are being used in such a positive way and delighted that Gary and the team at Windows Plus were able to support Warwick hospital. Undoubtedly, NHS staff are the heroes of this crisis and we owe them a debt of gratitude.”
The doors and privacy screens are being manufactured using the Optima QS70 system from Profile 22. So far, Windows Plus has installed screens and doorsets in the Covid-19 ward and the baby care ward of Warwick Hospital. The next phase will be the hospital’s canteen, with work continuing across the hospital thereafter. Installers are using PPE to protect themselves and others. They are also taking all possible hygiene precautions.
Gary concluded: “It has been a privilege to provide practical help at this critical time and give something back to the NHS for everything they’re doing.”
