UV-C Blinds
Self-disinfecting blind systems

TAO Medical roller blind
Powered and self-disinfecting with just a click

UV-C Blinds by TAO Medical help to drastically reduce hospital infections caused by bacteria and acquired through contact. They save time and money spent on treatment (of patients and visitors) and days of absence and re-organised shifts when infection affects staff. That’s why they are the perfect solution for hospitals, private clinics, nursing homes and care homes.

UV-C Blinds is the first silent powered roller blind for cubicles and windows. It shields the light and provides privacy, but above all it contributes to the health of patients, visitors and staff. It incorporates a fabric disinfection system activated automatically every time the “disinfect” button is pressed.

UV-C Blinds is TAO Medical’s first product, created and industrialised in the TAO Tessile research and development laboratories. This Italian company produces prestige technical indoor and outdoor curtains for residential, collective and office use and holds numerous patents.

How UV-C Blinds work

The powered roller blind incorporating UV-C rays disinfects itself with just a click that activates a full cycle with UV-C rays on a wavelength of 254 nm. The process destroys the molecular links in the DNA of micro-organisms and makes them harmless. The fabrics used are fireproof, devoid of harmless substances and have a zipper to facilitate removing the cloth panel. As of today UV-C Blinds are the only definitive solution to the problem of disinfecting curtains that does not involve the times and costs generated by routine maintenance.
