Our commitment pushes development forward
Silentia was started by a few genuine entrepreneurs, whose passion was product development. A significant market need lead us into the business in which we have remained faithful over the years. Thanks to our well established connections within the health care sector, we became increasingly aware of the fact that there was a big need for a simpler and more hygienic alternative to curtains.
In the spring of 1990 the first version of the Silentia folding screen was introduced and our first patent was registered. The screen represented a completely new product across health care environments, differing very much from the commonly used ceiling mounted curtains. The screens form and functions had been tested by health care personnel and received a warm welcome. The screens had many advantages compared to curtains, including allowing daylight into a room, being easy to clean without being removed, and preserved patient privacy without interfering with ceiling lifts and other equipment. Later that year, our first delivery was sent to a hospital in Jönköping, Sweden.
In 1991 the Silentia Folding Screen was internationally introduced at a fair in Germany. Even here the innovation were well received, helping sales to quickly increase. This sparked other countries interest outside of our domestic market. Today, Silentia Screens are being used in over 50 countries around the world.
In 2000 the Mobile Bed End Screen was introduced.
In 2003 our production was brought in-house.
In 2008 the company moved into a newly built facility in Falkenberg, Sweden.
In 2010 several new products were added to what is now considered an entire screen system. This flexible system features both folding and fixed screens, available as wall-mounted or fixed, and come in various heights and lengths. This year brought the development of our Daylight screen, a translucent and frosted screen, allowing for light to easily flow through. The Easy Concept (EasyClean, EasyReturn and EasyClick) and a fully automated robot-assembly, ensuring both rational and quality assured production, were also introduced.
In 2012 we launched our first printed screens, produced in customized colors and patterns on translucent panels that allow more daylight into the room.
In 2014 we launched The Shower Screen, adapted for patients who are in need of assistance.
During the past 25 years, and since the beginning of the Silentia story, our products have undergone continuous development. The basic idea of privacy screens may be simple and seemingly obvious, but we are always in search for improvements, whether it concerns construction, design or processes, such as choice of material, production methods or sustainability concerns.
