Samuel Heath’s Powermatic Free Swing controlled, concealed door closers have been used at a new £48 million state-of-the-art psychiatric care building at Royal Edinburgh Hospital. The new facilities will provide accommodation for the adult acute mental health inpatient service, older people’s mental health assessment, Intensive Psychiatric Care Service and the new Robert Fergusson national brain injury unit. Powermatic Free Swing door closers have been used on the main entrance doors to all 185 residential care rooms throughout the new building.

Natural ventilation specialist Passivent has introduced iMEV Total, an ‘intelligent’ mechanical extract ventilation system that offers an automated, energy efficient approach to optimising air quality. It is suited to large, multi-residential properties such as care homes and student accommodation where refreshing good indoor air quality is important for occupant well-being. The humidity-sensitive ceiling mounted extracts are flexible and adapt to the ventilation needs of individual rooms, increasing extraction rates as required in different areas at different times, without affecting other areas where ventilation is not needed. With ventilation controlled by the demands of the room environment, no user intervention is required. iMEV Total includes a ‘constant pressure’ fan that runs continuously yet varies its speed according to the humidity levels of the different areas of the building by sensing the pressure in the ductwork. At night, when demand and humidity levels are low and the extract units reduce in open area, the fan speed reduces to the quietest minimum setting. With its constant operation and automatically adjustable fan speed, lower energy usage is achieved.

01732 850 770 Delabie launches a range of mixers with retracting hand sprays

DELABIE have launched a range of mixers with retracting hand sprays in mechanical, pressure-balancing and thermostatic versions for enhanced safety and improved comfort. Each mixer features a maximum temperature limiter. The pressure-balancing version has an EP cartridge which compensates for differences in the incoming hot and cold water supply pressures to deliver water at a constant temperature. If the cold supply fails, the hot water is instantly reduced to a trickle, preventing scalding. The thermostatic version incorporates an anti-scald- ing failsafe where the hot water shuts off immediately if the cold supply fails and vice versa. These versions are ideal for baby baths in maternity wards and nurseries where safety is paramount. The mixers have a choice of controls. An ergonomic solid lever offers an improved grip, while the Hygiene lever requires no manual contact, improving comfort and hygiene. The new mixers with retracting hand sprays have been specifically designed to limit the volume of standing water in the body. They are fitted with a cartridge and flexible hose with low water volumes. They also feature a transparent hose which can be visually checked for biofilm.
