Introducing ropimex®: Innovative Hospital Curtain Solutions

Ropimex Telescopic Curtain

ORCA HealthCare has worked closely with several care homes and care providers over the years, and we know just how important it is that hospital and care home rooms are versatile, safe, and offer maximum comfort to users. While your primary focus is quite rightly on the client, we understand that care staff can do their jobs better with high-quality hospital curtain solutions that are easy to use. That’s why we are proud to be official suppliers of ropimex®products. The entire ropimex®line is not only versatile and easy to use—it’s also designed and manufactured to the highest German standards.

Founded in 1976 by engineer Wolfgang Opel, ropimex®specializes in delivering innovative products designed to offer maximum privacy and comfort to hospital patients and care home users. The innovative telescopic and folding curtain rods, for example, are perfect for rooms where space is limited. They are also suitable to use in conjunction with ceiling lifts, as they won’t interfere with the lifts during patient transfers. Using traditional rods, privacy screens and hospital curtains can be limiting, causing difficulties for care staff and disruption to the patient’s comfort. ropimex®address these issues and more with some exciting products we can’t wait to share with you!
