68 Medical Construction & Design | September/October 2014 #1 ❏ 08 New color palette available for noraplan eco line of fl ooring nora systems, Inc., manufacturer of commercial rubber fl ooring, has re- colorized its noraplan eco line with 16 new colors. Recycled materials are utilized to create the smooth, high-performance fl oor covering that features a two-tone randomly scattered color chip pat- tern. The fl ooring does not contain any PVC, plasticizers or halogens and is GREENGUARD certifi ed for low VOC emissions and GREENGUARD Gold Certifi ed for low VOC emissions. The fl oor covering is highly ergonomic for walking and standing and features high footfall sound absorption proper- ties and an extended lifecycle, which reduces the need for frequent removal and disposal. PRODUCTS Green News #1 ❏ 07 Daikin Applied expands Magnitude WMC water-cooled chiller line Daikin Applied has expanded its Magnitude WMC chiller line to include four additional sizes — WMC125, 200, 225 and 275. The line is ideal for most commercial applications, including hospitals. Magnitude's oil- free, magnetic bearing compressor technology is proven to reduce energy and operating costs, while delivering the highest level of reliability. Sustainable effi ciency and capacity is ensured by the oil-free system design, which maintains "as new" performance by eliminating the heat transfer loss when oil contaminates the refrigerant and builds up in the evaporator. Magnitude also qualifi es for LEED EAC4 points.

The core of the solution is an integrated control platform that brings together a large variety of hospital systems into a single, intelligent control system. The seamless integration of systems ensures optimal operation and allows hospital staff to quickly and accurately analyze and respond to events to provide the most effi cient, comfortable and secure environment possible. #1 ❏ 05 LED energy-effi cient lamps viable replacements for CFLs Designed to replace less-effi cient compact fl uorescent lamps in health- care facilities, MaxLite launched fi ve- and seven-watt LED PL Retrofi t Lamps with GU24, GX23 and G24q pin base options, the latest additions to the company's energy-effi cient lamps and lighting fi xtures. The new LED PL lamps easily retrofi t a variety of fi xtures, including recessed cans, sconces and ceil- ing fi xtures. The fi ve- and seven-watt LEDs replace 13- and 18-watt com- pact fl uorescent lamps, respectively. Constructed with a lamp holder that rotates 270 degrees, the LED PL Ret- rofi ts feature a simple ballast bypass to ensure maintenance-free, energy- saving operation and higher perfor- mance. The damp-listed lamps offer instant-on capabilities and are backed by a limited fi ve-year warranty. #1 ❏ 06 New solution helps create more effi cient, reliable healthcare facilities Schneider Electric's new EcoStruxure solution for healthcare is designed to fully integrate clinical healthcare systems with infrastructure systems to lower operating expenses, reduce risk, improve clinical outcomes and increase patient satisfaction. The solution leverages interrelated data to better operate facilities, leading to
