For healthcare and aged care, infection control is the highest priority. MacDonald Industries provide healthcare facilities with the best equipment for this sector which includes a specialist range of Delabie taps and Franke Mediflow sinks.
While the threat from Covid-19 is diminishing, it is only one of the many health risks immune-compromised people have to consider. Reducing or eliminating risks associated with poor plumbing design and/or products is something MacDonald Industries and their supply partners have been addressing for many years.
Water stagnation can result in bacterial proliferation in pipework and in particular faucets and showerheads where complex shapes create the perfect environment. The results can be catastrophic for immune-compromised people. Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and Legionella can be controlled by good design and in particular quality products that limit this proliferation.
Delabie Biosafe and Securitouch products are specifically designed to be installed in high-risk applications such as hospitals, and doctors and dentist surgeries. Smooth bored castings, smooth flexible hoses, and flow straighteners, rather than aerators reduce the potential stagnation points. Biofilters can also be supplied for high-risk hospital wards where complete elimination of biological impurities is vital.
Ozone is a known bactericide and Franke’s Mediflo basins deliver ozone laden water to effectively kill bacteria. This is a highly specialised product for use in areas where risks to patients are required to be eliminated. The basin design also reduces the likelihood of splashing and water aeration.
