Flexibility in the service of health and social care

Health and social care facilities are under constant pressure to be efficient and adaptable. Changing needs, legal requirements and unforeseen exceptional situations require dynamic space management.

Dorma Hüppe’s modular movable wall systems allow room utilisation to be quickly adjusted without losing sight of operational efficiency. Whether converting multi-bed rooms into single rooms in medical facilities, training rooms for employees, special solutions for X-ray rooms or multifunctional rooms in nursing homes for various activities – our systems support optimised use of space and improve the wellbeing of patients and residents. 

By creating multifunctional areas, institutions can better respond to the individual and collective needs of their users. Our solutions help you adapt spaces quickly and effectively to ensure high-quality care and support.

More space, more flexibility, more options

Whether in medical care, nursing, training or administration — the entire health and social services sector must respond flexibly to current requirements. Movable wall systems from Dorma Hüppe allow the utilisation of space to be adapted to the respective requirements quickly and economically.

Best sound insulation for discretion and privacy

Opaque movable wall elements with a sound insulation rating of up to Rw 59 dB efficiently prevent distracting noises penetrating from one area of the room into another.

A feel-good atmosphere thanks to glass

Transparent elements create a bright, friendly atmosphere for patients and staff. Glass and opaque elements can be combined as desired. Practical glass elements with internal blinds offer either more openness or more privacy.

Unobtrusive and easy to handle

The movable wall elements are parked in a small area to save space and their low weight per unit area makes them easy to handle. Modern and intuitive operating options allow staff to concentrate on the essentials: care and support.

Attractive and hygienic

Surfaces made from a variety of materials combine visual aesthetics with practical functionality. The elements can be fitted with antibacterial surfaces.

Competent planning, comprehensive service

Well-versed in health and social care needs, we support every provider with experience, cutting-edge technology and a proactive attitude. Besides planning, Dorma Hüppe offers expert service for the sustainable operation of your movable wall system.
