Health & Safety Compliances
Bio Cart HEPA-UVC/UVGI complies with all relevant health and safety guidelines for portable, negative air, dust containment carts used in healthcare facilities.
Because the occupants of healthcare facilities are often more susceptible contaminates introduced into the air by routine maintenance work to and above the ceilings, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has created strict guidelines for how this work must be performed while minimizing the risks to sensitive individuals in its guidelines for Infection Control in Healthcare Facilities (ICRA).
Activities such as testing fire and smoke sensors, adding or rerouting wires and fiber optic lines for IT equipment, cleaning air system components, changing electrical wiring, all must include consideration for controlling the amount of dust and infectious particles that might be disturbed and introduced into the air.
The Bio Cart HEPA-UVC/UVGI is a portable containment cart that extends to any ceiling up to 13 ft high, with a ladder that remains inside to reach the work area. The BIO Cart provides negative pressure and air exchange rates to comply with CDC guidelines to contain dust and infectious particles. BIO Cart adds UVGI irradiation in the HEPA compartment to neutralize infectious particles captured by the 99.97% HEPA filter. The clean air is then exhausted out the bottom as a diffused flow so it cannot disturb documents on desks. The Bio Cart complies with the CDC’s ICRA Guidelines, and also meets fire control guides for using flame retardant materials and able to quickly be relocated from fire evacuation routes.
