500 Integral Glass blinds fitted to high use hospital environment.

Morley Glass & Glazing has secured a contract to manufacture and provide 500 integral blind units to the new Dumfries Hospital.

The blinds will be manufactured using the Uni-Blind® sealed units comprising the ScreenLine® integral blind product. It will be built to withstand the high use of a busy hospital building.

The blinds were chosen thanks to their high quality construction and long service life. Their primary use will be to provide privacy solutions. Hospital environments are ideal for integral blinds. This is because they are permanently housed in a hermetically sealed unit. They won’t be susceptible to dirt or dust. Importantly they’ll play an important role in a hospital environment where cleanliness is essential.

Integral blinds in harmony with leading aluminium systems.

Morley Glass is manufacturing the blinds in partnership with CMS Window Systems, the glazing contractor on the construction project.

To complement the Morley Glass integral blinds is the class leading Kawneer AA100 curtain walling. Also being installed are Kawneer AA720 commercial aluminium doors. The window element of the project will comprise aluminium casement windows and aluminium reversible pivot windows.
