Rada provides critical support to the NHS in fight against COVID-19

Washroom controls specialist Rada is working with critical care facilities to support staff and help the NHS win the fight against COVID-19.

Rada’s mixer tap Safetherm, has been specified and installed in the Nightingale Hospitals and NHS facilities across the UK. Designed specifically for the healthcare environment, Safetherm is a thermostatic clinical tap that improves bacterial control and user safety.

It is also working with hospitals to adapt their existing facilities to help guard against the spread of COVID-19. This includes installing additional handwashing stations at entrances and other access points to support infection control measures.

This has included some of the first installations in the UK of Rada’s brand-new Intelligent Care range. The newly designed digital tap is ideal for healthcare spaces as it minimises the risk of infection through non-touch controls and digitally set thermal disinfection and duty flushing.

The taps were selected both for their performance and Rada’s ability to respond to deadlines and deliver components to site in response to the NHS’s emergency response.

Katy Rogers, Commercial Business Director at Rada, comments: “We’re working incredibly hard to support critical care facilities and meet the immediate demand. Our manufacturing line is operational, and our specialist healthcare taps and showers are being delivered to healthcare facilities across the UK – with some orders being delivered within 24 hours.

“Handwashing is one of the simplest, but most important tasks in helping to control the spread of the virus. Using washroom controls designed specifically for healthcare facilities can make a valuable contribution to this and in keeping staff and patients safe. It’s incredibly important to us to be supporting healthcare professionals in their work to save lives.”

Rada’s specialist range of healthcare taps have been designed to meet the demands of infection control and user safety. The range includes its digital taps – Intelligent Care, Sense, Acu and its mechanical taps – Safetherm and Thermotap.

Rada is the leading manufacturer of taps and showers specifically for healthcare. It understands the challenges and demands healthcare professionals on the frontline face.
