  What Will Future Dental & Medical Interiors Look Like for a Safe and Healthy Environment

  Check-in Counters
When transitioning from virtual check-ins to interactive check-ins, consider inserting 6’ flooring finish changes to create social distancing. This will allow once person at a time to approach the desk
To protect your employees, FX Design can select unique plexiglass products that blend with the interiors.

Waiting Areas
Once waiting areas reopen, FX Design can re-plan your waiting room layout to maintain proper social distancing. If waiting seating is ganged together, then to separate these chairs, an installer must remove the connecting bracket under each chair to create individual chairs. This many not be possible for chairs that share a single armrest! An individual seat chair could be separated by turning every other chair to the wall so no one can sit in it.

Furniture
FX Design can reupholster your existing furniture with bleach cleanable textiles, such as Crypton for any areas that require regular disinfecting or sterilizing.

Staff Kitchens, Labs & Sterilization Rooms
First and foremost, install hand sanitizer stands at entries and exits. Limit the num-ber of staff entering at any given time, as these rooms are typically close quarters.

Sanitary Surfaces

FX Design can specify hygienic perfor-mance materials for countertops that are non-porous solid surfaces, which are resistant to bacteria and fungi and are easily cleanable to adhere to a strict daily cleaning regimens. Type II wallcovering for common corridors & high traffic areas so that disinfectant and bleach can be utilized, is another way to promote healthy environments.

Brushing Stations
Brushing stations are being utilized as hand hygiene stations for the time being. Notice the floor insert which guides patients with social distancing. FX Design can select unique textured barri-ers in lieu of the bulky temporary plastic bar-riers we see in retail outlets.

An innovative way to direct traffic or create 6 ft distancing is to insert colored flooring finishes to define wayfinding pathways instead of placing tape on flooring.

FX Design, Inc. can provide consulting services to analyze how to adjust your current practice to meet the social distancing requirements.
