70 Medical Construction & Design | September/October 2014 #1 ❏ 10 Diffuser offers intelligent solutions to meet stringent healthcare regulations The Titus Laminar Flow Diffuser for critical environments has been designed to comply with industry stan- dard, ASHRAE 170, offering important safeguards for surgical patients. Used in operat- ing rooms as the primary diffusers, the vertical piston of air created is used to discharge clean air over the patient during operations. Including snap-in, auto-centering fi lter retainers, the new diffuser reduces the amount of time and effort during installation and removal of fi lters. This decreases the time a lab or operating suite is out of commis- sion, allowing facilities to maximize profi tability and patient care. The diffusers are available in aluminum and stainless steel construction with fi lter retainers that require no tools for installation or removal. #1 ❏ 11 Toggle switches made with EPA-registered antimicrobial copper services Eaton's line of switches and wall- plates made with Environmental Protection Agency-registered CuVerro antimicrobial cop- per surfaces now include a toggle switch option. The new toggle switch offers specifi ers a durable and attrac- tive design to help fi ed in the future, or disassembled and moved if required. Ceiling HEPA fi ltration is designed to meet needs from a cleaned-up area from the surround- ing environment to class 1000 (ISO 6). Door, lighting and electrical options are provided as requested. #1 ❏ 13 Best-in-class engineering of bedpan washers provides durability, lower lifetime costs The new Moen Commercial heavy-duty M•Dura Bedpan Washer is built to with- stand the most demanding healthcare environments and designed to limit the spread of damaging bacteria in patient rooms. The bedpan washer is built with a durable, solid-brass body and a #1 ❏ 09 IMETCO offers complete rainscreen wall systems package Innovative Metals Com- pany, Inc. recently intro- duced its IntelliScreen complete rainscreen wall systems package, delivering alluring style, energy effi ciency, strength and longevity under a single-source warranty. The straightforward rain- screen design effectively addresses the four major control layers of a wall assembly: water, air, insula- tion and vapor. IntelliScreen systems include a versatile line of metal wall panels available in various materials and colors. A vented horizontal hat channel with a patent- pending design creates a 1-inch air cavity for drainage and ventilation and virtually eliminates thermal bridging. Stone wool continuous insulation offers unmatched thermal effi ciency, fi re resistance and noise reduction. Water-resistive air barriers stop the fl ow of air and liquid water, while allow- ing controlled diffusion of water vapor.

In addition to new toggle switches, the Arrow Hart line of wiring devices with CuVerro touch surfaces includes single, three-way and four-way deco- rator switches, as well as specifi ca- tion-grade, standard size wallplates in multiple gangs and confi gurations. All products have been tested and are compliant to Underwriters Laborato- ries standards. #1 ❏ 12 Modular CleanLabs offer complete, time-saving solutions HEMCO Modular CleanLabs feature a modular construction design that is cost effective and time effi cient compared to traditional construction. An entire laboratory workspace is pre- engineered including the structure and the lab furniture/fume hoods to outfi t the interior. Modular CleanLabs wall panels have a white fi berglass surface for chemical resistance and excel- lent light refl ectivity. Because of the modular construction, the structure can be easily assembled, modi-
