Medical treatment and exam rooms are visited by many people from all walks of life on any given day. While only a few people are in the room at a time, any germs or contaminants that they bring in will definitely linger in that room for the next patient or healthcare worker coming in. Installing a Safety Halo® from the ceiling of an exam room is a great way to help reduce number of germs in that room, protecting both the patients and the doctors/nurses.
The Safety Halo® functions by pulling the germ-filled air into its housing where two filters work to filter out those germs, which include a HEPA element to remove germs and other tiny particles. The Safety Halo® will then blow the clean air down over the patient to form a cone of slightly-pressurized air moving outward and downward. This moving air will capture many of the germs exhaled by the patient and push them down toward the floor and away from the healthcare people. It will also capture germs exhaled by the doctor or other medical person and help prevent them from reaching the patient.
Installing an Air Cleaning BlowerTM (ACB) can also have large effects on treatment rooms by removing particles without using any filter elements and spreading clean air throughout the room. Instead of blocking and collecting the debris with filter media, ACBs use the momentum of the particles to separate them from the air and eject them directly. The big benefit: they blow and clean air without any filter elements to buy, store, replace or dispose. Since debris does not accumulate in the units and clog, you can count on steady airflow, air pressure and power consumption. No filter elements means no filter maintenance! They can also be used to pre-clean the air for the HEPA element in the Safety Halos® when the air is especially dirty.
