ater, essential for hygiene, can also be a source of infection if its quality is not controlled. The

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommend that hot and cold water systems in all buildings open to the public should be monitored for Legionella, including hotels, student accommodation, campsites etc., and not just healthcare facilities. The HSE Approved Code of Practice and Guidance document L8 states that duty holders should: identify and assess sources of risk of exposure to Legionella; put in place precautions to prevent or control that risk; and monitor these measures to ensure that they remain effective. If contamination occurs, point-of-use filters should be used as a temporary control measure until a permanent, safe solution is put in place. Now fully WRAS approved, DELABIE’s

range of anti-bacterial BIOFIL point-of-use filters can provide peace of mind if an outbreak is identified. Featuring innovative, hollow-fibre membrane technology to micro-filter the water, BIOFIL filters have a

Healthier door closing

Powermatic concealed door closers from Samuel Heath are becoming increasingly popular with specifiers, estates managers and clinicians throughout the healthcare sector thanks to the many health, safety and hygiene benefits that they deliver. Powermatic door closers are totally concealed when the door is closed and offer few surfaces on which dust and potentially harmful detritus can accumulate. Their low mounting height also simplifies inspection and cleaning procedures. British designed and manufactured, Powermatic door closers are ideal for anti-ligature and anti-barricade applications in mental health facilities. Their concealment also helps to create the less institutionalised, more therapeutic environment valued by clinicians. Finally, the door closers are less likely to be vandalised, significantly enhancing reliability of the closer and fire door, and reducing repair and maintenance costs.

0121 766 4200 Stanley Dura-Care doors for Spire Hartswood Hospital

Five Stanley Dura-Care 7500 telescopic sliding doors have been installed by Axis Automatic Entrance Systems at the Spire Hartswood Private Hospital in Brentwood Essex. Halliday Meecham Architects were looking to replace timber doors on the five patient ‘pods’ used in the recovery area for day-case procedures. The previous doors restricted access for moving beds in and out of the rooms and also created a very closed and detached environment. While researching alternatives they found the Stanley Dura-Care door range featured on the Axis Automatic Entrance Systems website. The fully glazed doors create a much brighter and attractive ambience in the recovery rooms and the breakout facility makes moving beds around much easier. The Stanley Dura-Care range is designed to meet the specific needs of hospital intensive and cardiac care units (ICU/CCU). They offer a selection of sliding, swing, folding and bi-folding door configurations and have all been designed to maximise clear space openings. Project Manager Kevin Hill of M&O Building Contractors was also impressed with the service provided by Axis, particularly the way problems were overcome.
