Bio Cart HEPA 10 and Bio Cart HEPA-UVC 13LT both comply with all relevant health and safety guidelines for portable, negative air, dust containment carts used in healthcare facilities.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has created strict guidelines for Infection Control in Healthcare Facilities (ICRA). These guidelines were implemented to protect the occupants in healthcare facilities that are often more susceptible to contaminates introduced into the air by routine maintenance work to and above the ceilings.
Careful consideration must be taken to protect from dust and infectious particles when performing maintenance activities such as, testing fire and smoke sensors, adding or rerouting wires and fiber optic lines for IT equipment, cleaning air system components, and changing electrical wiring.
The Bio Cart HEPA-UVC 13LT 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 HEPA 10 is a portable containment cart that extends to any ceiling up to 10 ft high, with a ladder that remains inside to reach the work area.
The BIO Cart provides negative pressure and air exchange rates that comply with CDC guidelines to contain dust and infectious particles. It 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 does not disturb the surrounding environment. The Bio Cart complies with all CDC’s ICRA Guidelines. It meets all fire control guidelines for using flame retardant materials, and its ability to quickly be relocated from fire evacuation routes.
