When you’re in a hurry or busy taking phone calls or answering emails, it’s easy to get distracted and forget to pay attention to where you’re going. The next thing you know, you’ve found yourself face to face with a glass wall that you didn’t even realize was there. This, of course, is a best case scenario. Sometimes people run into glass so hard and fast that they wind up with serious injuries.

This is something that happens in hospitals all the time. Family members are too busy taking phone calls or worrying about their sick loved ones to be able to focus on where they’re going at all times. Doctors and nurses are constantly scurrying around from one room to the next, trying to help as many sick patients as they can. In the medical world, time is of the essence.

One smart way to avoid glass collisions in hospitals is by installing window film safety distraction marks. Colorado hospitals can use these window films strategically to highlight hard-to-see glass areas, helping to create a safer environment for all.

Window Film: A Modern Safety Solution

If you’ve never of heard of window film distraction marks before, you might be wondering what they are. Window film distraction marks are an architectural product used to make buildings safer.

Most safety and security window films have a clear appearance. While they’re great at fortifying glass so it doesn’t break, they don’t actually prevent accidents from happening. Window film safety distraction marks, on the other hand, offer this benefit.

How It Works

Subtle patterns provide visual cues to walkers to indicate the presence of a physical barrier. Instead of running headlong into glass, people know to slow down so they can open the door or go around.

How Hospitals Can Benefit from Safety Distraction Marks

Installing window film safety distraction marks for Colorado hospitals is a great way to:

  • Prevent glass collisions and injuries
  • Reduce bird strikes on exterior glass
  • Add visual interest and branding to hospital interiors
  • Keep people safe by preventing glass from being broken or shattered
  • Reduce liability risks associated with onsite injury
  • So while the primary role of safety distraction marks is to prevent glass collisions, there are many other ways that hospitals can benefit from this enhanced safety feature.
