HALIO Smart Glass Solutions for​ Medical Office Buildings & Healthcare​

HALIO for Medical Office Buildings & Healthcare

Caring for the health of our country takes dedication, experience, and state-of-the-art facilities to foster the breakthroughs and deliver care. The facilities, from local doctors’ offices to hospitals and research facilities, must support a clean and healthy environment, nurture creativity and innovation, and run efficiently to minimize spending on overhead.

Smart glass eliminates blinds which reduces maintenance and the opportunity for airborne contaminants from accumulating indoors. The energy savings enables more dollars to be allocated to research and care rather than OpEx and the unobstructed views help researchers, front-line caregivers, and patients alike thrive in often stressful environments.
