Mediserve Hospital Product


C&B Systems manufacture and install Pre-plumbed sanitary assemblies. The design meets and/or exceeds current legislation and guidance notes for Hospitals. Mediserve sanitary assemblies are installed in many UK hospitals, both large and small, some of which are illustrated on the right.


New Products & Materials

-

C&B Systems strive to improve the Mediserve systems and the materials used. Working with contractors, trusts, components suppliers, facility managers, infectious controls and manual handling on the assemblies has enabled C&B to bring innovations and special features to this sector.

C&B Systems continue to improve the Mediserve system and are ready to discuss a clients requirements and put forward solutions for any sanitary assembly. Consideration is given to the many strange requirements that occur on a project. This could range from the ADL rooms, mortuary, endoscope, birthing pool, foot wash, or the basic en suite/ward arrangements.

Facility Management - Increasingly C&B Systems are regularly involved with the supply or supply and install of sanitary ware and panel sets in existing hospitals to keep a hospital up to date with any alerts or changes to upgrade products.

Material choices for the products

The following are typical questions that regularly arise. C&B Systems have developed the solutions for them.

Anti-bacterial products - Are they a good idea or not? What form of anti-bacterial material are available? Can all pieces in the room contain the defence or just some?

What is the effect on the skin? What about the good bugs? Will it help create the super bug? Will sterilising chemicals damage the equipment?

Pipe work - Copper, Plastic or Stainless? Trace heating, insulation or neither? Consideration has to be given to the water and its source. Is it hard or soft, brown-field, green-field, grey or borehole? These items have an effect on the water and the water can be affected the pipe/product. What is your water and how will it affect the equipment?

Taps - Electronic or Manual? Cool touch or scald? Bugs can breed differently in both types of products. Are you sure you have the correctly researched taps? Is the tap coordinated with the basin, sink or trough? And will the water funnel or splash? Can you actually get your elbow behind the lever, or does the lever go back to the panel? Should the TMV3 valve be integrated or external? Has the chosen component assembly been tested? Is is WRAS approved?

Pottery Products - Pottery glaze. How much glaze has been applied and at what temperature was it cured? Is the surface flat or full or pit holes? Does the water run smoothly away?

Stainless Products - What grade is being used and what is the finish? Does it resemble the Himalayas or a cross section of a wavy sea or has the surface been ground flat? What is the surface like at the bends? How many places for bugs have been created?

Weights etc - Will the total assembly take the prescribed downwards loads and how do we integrate with grab rails and group two equipment? There are other materials not within the current system that may bring improvement within the hospital. Can C&B Systems bring those into this closed arena?
