The introduction of this new French regulation for medical environments, means signifcant changes in the design of mechanical, thermostatic and electronic mixers. What are the changes that have been made? Why? And what can we learn?
In public places, washrooms must be able to withstand intensive and often heavy-handed use.
Primarily designed to be robust and easy to maintain, sanitary furniture has evolved, gradually integrating an element that is becoming more and more important: aesthetics.
The DELABIE Group, expert in accessibility, has increased its range of grab bars and shower seats with its new design range Be-Line®.
Combining aesthetics and comfort, it offers hygiene, safety and a feeling of well-being to users - the elderly, people with reduced mobility or disabled people.
The quality and comfort associated with DELABIE's shower seats provide safety and well-being in the bathroom. Wall-mounted, lift-up, fold-away, hanging, fixed or removable shower seats: there is a DELABIE shower seat to meet every requirement.
The many advantages of direct flush make it the ideal system for buildings open to the public. Here is a reminder of its advantages which are still not widely known.
France, Germany and the United Kingdom each has their own specific regulatory requirements for monitoring bacteria in water systems, and each has their own response to contamination by Legionella and Pseudomonas. DELABIE offers a range of products that are compatible with these regulations.
The new SECURITHERM EP BIOSAFE 26216EP mixer is the first mixer with no spout to meet all the issues faced by healthcare patients and care home residents: comfort, total safety, hygiene and infection control.
With the launch of its stainless steel range, DELABIE’s intention is not only to continue to develop the secure sector market, the traditional outlet for this robust and hygienic material, but also to enter the world of interior design and assert itself designing high-end equipment.
An essential element, especially for hygiene, water can become a vehicle for infection if its quality is not guaranteed. Controlling its quality has become a major and constant concern for public buildings.
Controlling the bacteriological quality of water is a major and constant concern for healthcare facilities. Anti-bacterial micro filters at the point-of-use guarantee maximum safety, especially for the most vulnerable people.
The many benefits of direct flush make it the ideal system for toilets facing high levels of demand in public places. We review its evolution and its advantages.
DELABIE has consolidated its position as European leader in sanitary ware and water controls for commercial environments.
Many buildings are still not accessible to all. In the domain of sanitary facilities, the equipment offering has to meet regulatory requirements of those countries with legislation, as well as the needs of an ageing population.
The methods of eliminating Legionella in healthcare facilities are ineffective in the long term. Monitoring and implementing preventative tools provide the best solution for protecting hot water systems against the risk of contamination by Legionella.
Controlling bacterial growth by monitoring water quality is essential to reduce nosocomial infections. Pseudomonas aeruginosa has become the focus of attention. Specially designed mixers and taps are essential to limit the spread of these pathogens in the healthcare sector.
In Europe, various schemes are being developed to demonstrate the quality and sustainability of water controls. The commercial water controls industry must ensure that an industry specific labelling system is put in place to highlights these attributes.
