Infection prevention is critical
High-touch areas in waiting rooms are often responsible for the cross-transmission of pathogens that can cause infection. Perez knows hospital and medical waiting room furniture needs to withstand a constant flow of patients and visitors and stand up to an endless barrage of cleaning with harsh disinfectants. According to Perez, “Kwalu products support better infection prevention than wood products because of the non-porous material.” Kwalu seating frames are inherently moisture-impervious, and contain minimal seams support ease of cleaning. In addition, Kwalu surfaces are bleach-cleanable.
Home-like aesthetic contributes to inviting atmosphere
Says Perez, “The quality of design has always surpassed my expectations and Kwalu’s design team has moved to a more modern look. That’s exciting!” Tift is embracing décor that suggests a home-like aesthetic. Kwalu transitional products proved to be a perfect fit.
Furniture excellence on tight budgets
Tift was quick to recognize the resilience of Kwalu means that lean purchasing principles can be followed. Due to the extended life cycle of the tables and chairs and the fact that they can be repaired and maintained while in active service, no spares or factored-in excesses need to be accounted for.
“I haven’t found anything superior to Kwalu”, says Perez, “everywhere I put the product it’s really taken off with patients and staff alike.”
