Unicel provided Vision Control sliding doors for Mount Sinai's renovation and upgrade of inpatient units, including intensive care spaces for cardiac patients. This included plans for 14 private rooms and a mandate to enhance both patient environments and provide more accessible and efficient nursing care. A key architectural element was to add sliding doors, because they operate easily and automatically. However, they also move incessantly, especially in ICUs where critical patients require constant care from nursing stations. Because of this, it was essential for these doors to maintain desired positioning at all times, without causing additional noise that could hinder patient recovery.

Imagine your home as a place for regeneration and a sanctuary for healing the wounds of the outside world.  It is clean, not cluttered and unmanageable.  It prevents disease and injury and restores you when the inevitable occurs.  It regenerates you on a daily basis, supporting good sleep, encouraging exercise, and making it fun to do healthy cooking.   That’s a lot to ask of a house, but it can be done.  Award winning interior designer, Cynthia Leibrock, presents “Design Details for Health” (the title of her lastest book).  Take a virtual one-hour tour of the designer’s home which has been featured on the cover of The New York Times.
