A flexible system for intensive care units
With the physical and emotional needs of your patients in mind, Maquet Variward optimizes the use of natural colors, wooden decorations and warm materials for a fast recovery and an improved hospital experience of the patient. Maquet Variward even offers specific design options to cheer up your youngest patients.
The wall system consists of hard-wearing elements that are made of water-resistant composite board with a sturdy finishing. The system itself is a complete unit - wall elements are sealed down to the substructure.
Due to its flexibility and excellent material characteristics, Maquet Variward is not only the right solution for your intensive care unit, but is also suitable for corridors, nurse desks and other treatment areas outside the OR, such as recovery, patient rooms and even isolation rooms.

Ceiling and Acoustics
