In hospitals and medical centres, achieving an ideal indoor climate is not just a matter of ensuring comfort, but also hygiene.
In hospitals, nursing homes and medical practices heating solutions have a dual role: they must provide an ideal level of comfort and contribute to maintaining optimal hygiene. To ensure this it is crucial that radiators are easy to clean, long lasting and, as health care facilities are often under budget pressures, be energy efficient to operate.
In addition to the prerequisite for energy efficient operation, hygiene is absolutely crucial in hospitals. Dr. Med. Uwe Frank from the University of Heidelberg (Department of Infectiology) has certified that Purmo radiators are fit for purpose in rooms requiring particularly high hygienic standards.
The critical aspects for choosing the right indoor climate heating system in hospitals are:
• Easy to clean
• No areas that cannot be accessed to clean
• Fast reaction to changed demands in heating
• Good ventilation
