Transforming Glasgow and Clyde NHS Trust Reception Areas with Flexiglide Shutters

The exterior Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow

The Glasgow and Clyde NHS Trust has recently undergone a significant refurbishment of all its hospitals and GP surgeries. As part of this project, the Trust required new security shutters for its reception areas.

FlexiGlide were asked to supply and fit the shutters, and we had just the product for the job: the FlexiGlide classic chainlink sliding security shutter. Our crisp white, chain-link sliding shutters are both practical and aesthetically pleasing, making them the perfect choice for this project.

Flexiglide sliding shutters: an excellent solution for security of reception areas

Our Flexiglide Sliding Shutters are an ideal solution for reception areas. In this project they provide cost-effective protection to the Trust's desk areas while blending seamlessly with the surroundings. We were able to fit both dual-height and curved desktop shutters, ensuring that the shutters met the NHS' specific needs.

Practicality and aesthetics

We understand the importance of both practicality and aesthetics in architecture and interior design. And we believe our sliding shutters fulfill both of these needs.

FlexiGlide sliding shutters are practical, as they provide quick and easy access to the desk area while also ensuring security. Additionally, the chain-link design allows for ample airflow and light, creating a welcoming and comfortable reception area for staff and visitors alike.

Why reception desk security is important

A reception desk is often the first point of contact for visitors to a building, and it's important to ensure the safety and security of the staff working there as well as any sensitive information or valuables stored in the area. One way to improve reception desk security is by installing a sliding security shutter.

A sliding security shutter can be quickly and easily closed to provide a physical barrier between the reception desk and the public areas of the building. This can prevent unauthorized access, protect valuable items such as computers or cash registers, and provide an added layer of security for staff members working at the reception desk.

In addition to providing physical security, a sliding security shutter can also be designed to match the aesthetic of the reception area. This means that the shutter can blend seamlessly into the overall design of the space, without detracting from its appearance.

Overall, a sliding security shutter can be an effective way to improve reception desk security without sacrificing aesthetics.
