Trunking 93: The perfect solution for public healthcare installations


Public Health installations need to roll out phased, flexible, economic responses. Unex Trunking 93 meets all the specifications for public health cabling systems.

Hospitals, primary care centers, care homes, pharmaceutical laboratories and many public health facilities have witnessed very rapid advances in clinical technology in recent years which has been evident in the evolution of their infrastructures. Many older facilities have had to roll out solutions for their patients and staff, increasing their capacity, offering more services and improving their electrical and cabling installations in order to satisfy all requirements.

We have seen in previous weeks, where the health crisis caused by Covid-19 has required an extra effort on the part of the sector in the fitting-out of public health installations for different medical and research uses, increasing the number of hospital beds to prevent a collapse in services and fitting out new technologies and field hospitals in response to urgent needs.

In this context, the need to roll out versatile, economical technological solutions, which are easy to install and maintain for all kinds of health facilities has been more urgent than ever. Also, because of the special nature of these institutions, the installation of cabling and circuitry needs to be performed with the minimum interference in the day to day running of health centers to maintain the quality of care offered to the patient.

Technological solutions for hospitals

Hospitals are designed to meet an essential need: treat patients from their admission to their recovery in the hospital environment. All this, without forgetting comfort and user experience, for both patient and sanitary professionals.

Among the available installations designed to prioritize patient and professional well-being in hospital wards are the integrated headboard installations. These types of installations offer multiple advantages: nurse controlled gas outlets, plug sockets, switches and LED illumination for improved energy efficiency. When choosing the right solution, the criteria are very clear: a safe option which permits the installation of various types of cable, separating circuits and offering the possibility of various systems like DIN circuits and data connections.The option to extend services and add new options is also necessary, according to the evolution of sanitary technology and needs. As we have seen with this crisis, the ability to react quickly to changing needs is vital. Hospitals, clinics and care homes need the capacity to roll out solutions.

Cabling needs in Laboratories

Thanks to Unex’s properties raw materials, the Trunking 93 is also the ideal conduction and insulation system for use in laboratories and testing areas in hospitals and pharmaceutical companies as it avoids contamination in so-called “clean rooms”. These are environments specially designed so that the elements being manipulated are not contaminated or affected by particles or temperature fluctuations. Clean rooms need to strictly control environmental factors such as air particles, humidity, air flow, air pressure and illumination.
