InstaSwap patient curtain system is designed specifically to meet the demands of healthcare environments. The modular system comprises a track fitted with non-absorbent nylon mesh and an opaque curtain panel, connected with reinforced snap fastener tape. Curtain panels come in two standard sizes (68”x62” or 68”x66”) and a range of colors. Variations in ceiling height between wards or bays are accommodated by the custom mesh height.

Health care facilities in North America can generate up to 33 pounds of waste per patient per day, with most of this being incinerated or sent to landfill.
