Acid-etched Glass: Providing a Sterile Environment with Style

Hospitals or healthcare facilities unfortunately do not have a very good reputation. I mean, no one “likes” going there and these buildings typically do not look very appealing.  This is probably due to the fact that utility was chosen over interior design.

Luckily, some architects and designers have taken upon them to change the way traditional healthcare facilities have been designed.

Cleanliness along with ease of keeping surfaces clean is top priority in health care environments, no one can argue with that. Keeping that in mind architects and designers are now using more and more glass due its ease of maintenance. Acid-etched glass, for example can be used in these types of applications due to its closed-pore surface which does not easily trap dirt and particles. Furthermore, it can be cleaned just like non-etched glass, which does not require additional effort.
