Maintains system circulation to prevent water stagnation.
We believe that a safely and effectively managed water system is one of a hospital’s most critical tools. If the component parts of a water system, from valves to taps and showers, have been thoughtfully designed to suit the complexities and maintenance demands of the hospital environment, they will be effective in minimising a patient’s risk of infection from Legionella and Pseudomonas. They will also provide protection for children, elderly, infirm or vulnerable people against scalding or burns.
These specific needs led Reliance to create its most innovative range of healthcare solutions from specialist Anti-Legionella Valves to our Caremix Prime taps specially designed and PVD coated to prevent bacteria breeding.
Over many years we’ve developed a deep understanding of how water is used in hospitals. As such, Reliance introduced a specialist Anti-Legionella Valve which can be installed on expansion vessels to reduce water stagnation and in-turn protect against legionella growth. We also recommend incorporating our specialist Harron Valve to keep outlets at a safe outlet pressure and the Heatguard TMV3-8, our toughtest TMV to protect against scalding & contamination.
As a world leader in the medical treatment and care of children, stringent safety, hygiene and infection control standards are critical at the new Alder Hey Children’s Health Park. As such, Reliance manufactured a bespoke shower solution in modular form using the 200 Series Caremix® Shower Panel with a custom ceiling trim to suit these fundamental needs as well as the hospital’s comfortable, home-from-home design.
