May 2004 | Acoustic Solutions in Healthcare, from Armstrong Ceilings

The healthcare sector places a unique set of complex and challenging demands on building designers and ceiling system manufacturers alike.

From operating theatres to wards, corridors to showers, the medical environment requires very special treatment. In one instance, hygiene is the prime consideration, in another it is access to the plenum or the need for wire-free connectivity to provide doctors with fast, easy access to patients' records. 

With their extensive experience in the healthcare sector, Armstrong, the world's leading manufacturer of ceiling systems, has produced two new binders for acoustics solutions in healthcare, one of which is designed specifically for PFI Contractors.

They will be of great assistance to all specifiers, acousticians, contractors and facilities managers involved in new build and refurbishment projects in this important sector.

The binders set out the UK acoustic requirements and a range of solutions to ensure that these are fully met. They incorporate easy to use product selectors for different Healthcare projects, providing full information on sizes, edge details and performance attributes from acoustical values to bacteria resistance. In addition, there are details on the unique, innovative i-ceilings wireless system which has already been installed throughout hospitals in wards areas, ICU's and A&E, enabling doctors to roam the hospital with personal hand held computers or notebooks and freely access patient information.
