Business Description


KwickScreen is a portable, retractable, room divider which provides isolation or privacy solutions in hospitals when required. KwickScreens have a very small footprint for easy storage and use, and are simple to transport and clean. KwickScreens enable hospitals to make the best use of space, offering the flexibility to change a room’s layout. The product greatly helps in the fight against healthcare-acquired infections as well as with mixed sex accommodation and general privacy and dignity problems.  KwickScrens can be printed, which adds colour and interest to wards and can be used to display important messages to staff and visitors.  In the past 6 months the business has sold KwickScreens to over 25 NHS trusts, as well as overseas to Canada, Italy and the UAE.
 
KwickScreen is the world’s most portable room divider and has applications beyond healthcare, such as in schools, universities, offices and exhibitions where open plan areas need to be divided in a fast and flexible manner.  The KwickScreen is a patented product, using RolaTube technology which the business holds a worldwide exclusive licence to use in making screens.
