Rada provides thermostatic control at Wrightington Hospital

Rada, the experts in commercial showering and washroom controls, are set to install a comprehensive range of thermostatic clinical taps at a newly rebuilt hospital in the North West.

Market-leading Safetherm TMV3 approved thermostatic clinical mixer taps featuring Insutech technology and Thermotap thermostatic mixing taps will be installed at Wrightington Hospital, a centre of orthopaedic surgery. The hospital is renowned for being the first ever to perform hip-replacement operations in the early 1960s.

While drawing strength from the past, Wrightington looks to the future, determined to sustain its reputation as a hospital at the leading edge of both practice and research. As a result it requires the highest quality clinical infrastructure.

Rada’s Safethem range is ideally suited to a hospital environment where it is essential to regulate water temperature to a safe level for use in sensitive clinical scenarios. A key benefit of Safetherm clinical mixer taps is the incorporated Insutech+ technology, which reduces surface temperatures to a safe level.

The innovative design of these high precision thermostatic taps minimises water retention in the body and spout which contributes to bacterial growth.

Thermotap is a robust, TMV3 approved thermostatic mixing valve which regulates temperature precisely for healthcare applications and reduces the risk of accidental scalding.

Sheraz Valli, Estates Officer at Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, said: “When designing the facility we wanted to ensure we were using the highest quality thermostatic mixing taps to minimise infection potential.

“Rada’s proven product range is designed specifically for a clinical environment and we knew the products would stand up well to the demanding requirements.”

Eoin McQuone, Business Director at Rada, said: “Wrightington Hospital is a new build and the directors wanted to make sure they invested in clinical infrastructure which will provide regulated, safe water supplies to those who need it most.

“We deliver high quality, robust products to the healthcare sector so that clinical professionals can rest assured they are using safe, precisely regulated water supplies for their practice.”
