With the 2020 COVID 19 pandemic, hygiene and non-transmission of viruses and pathogens has become extremely critical

Human beings are typically the largest single source of contamination in a doctors surgery, so patients and staff need protection from each other. Melaphones offer a way to hold normal level conversation at close range with no risk of transmission

A doctors surgery is unfortunately a place where people with reduced or compromised immunity can pick up viruses from other patients just due to proximity of each other even with social distancing. Along with a steady flow of patients collecting prescriptions and letters, the exposure to viruses such as Coranavirus is greatly increased for staff and patient alike. Essentially, a melaphone consists of a circular, transparent diaphragm, made of a tough, versatile plastic called polycarbonate and reinforced with a stainless-steel mesh. The transparent diaphragm transmits sound freely and clearly, without the need for a loudspeaker and/or power supply but, because air does not flow through it, it cannot transmit airborne contaminants.

Clear communication in your surgery

Diaphragms are available in diameters large and small, which can easily be accommodated in a range of  clear screens. Even in smaller diameters, they offer a high degree of vision, so that staff behind the desk can see those patients outside, and vice versa, and work safely.

The Melaphone itself demonstrates incredibly high-impact strength. They can also be reinforced through the addition of a stainless steel mesh guard. They provide effective protection and security for your staff.
The unit is designed to facilitate the mutual exchange of information. Thanks to its sensitive diaphragm, speech is clear and there’s no need for a loudspeaker or power supply.
The circular diaphragm of the unit is constructed from polycarbonate, which offers security and protection, without impairing the qualities of speech or viewing.
In short, no – the unit is constructed from clear polycarbonate and, as such, vision is not impaired. Even when installed in double glazing, a transparent cylinder is used to maintain visibility.
