Our company name — Diversified Fall Protection — generally explains our niche within the worker health and safety industry. Though we are traditionally known as a resource providing fall protection for workers at height, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed life for all of us.

During the past 2 weeks, the engineering teams of DFP, and our sister company, Unistrut Service Company, have developed a rapid-deployment, temporary hospital room designed to address surging patient capacity challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.

One of the primary challenges our nation’s hospitals are struggling with is how to expand patient capacity as COVID-19 cases continue to climb.

To address this need, our engineers have designed a portable hospital partition system using Unistrut framing channel and medical grade, flame retardant fabric walls. To increase the speed with which units can be erected, the fabric walls are secured to the framing with quick connect loop ties.

The finished product is an extremely affordable alternative to other portable room solutions.

The streamlined design of these portable hospital rooms makes them an ideal component of programs converting arenas, stadiums, and other open usable space within hospitals into areas that can accommodate additional hospital beds during the predicted COVID-19 surge in the United States.

Questions regarding availability and bulk pricing for the portable room solution can be addressed to our sister company, Unistrut Service Company at 440-348-9450.
