What Is Temporary Ventilation For Hospitals

Temporary ventilation for hospitals is a service that provides equipment on a short term basis for supplying fresh heated or cooled air into a medical area, and as such, is considered non-permanent.

How Does Our Temporary Ventilation For Hospitals Work?

Temporary ventilation for hospitals works by maintaining a fleet of AHU’s designed for hospital applications in readiness for rapid deployment to site specific problems that may arise. This could include breakdowns or planned projects.

Designed to be portable, the units can be transported to a site within hours to address emergency situations. Not only will we deliver the units, installation can be completed by our fully qualified engineers.

Its a really great service from end to end and critical to keeping patients and staff safe whilst maintaining operations.

Below is a series of photos of a recent project at Yeovil Hospital. A Trane heat pump ahu was installed onto a roof and connected with flexible ducting to maintain operation whilst a replacement program was carried out.

Successful Hospital Ventilation Projects Completed

We are really proud of the projects we have completed in the hospital sector- please find below a selection of temporary HVAC installations.

Temporary emergency triage centre ventilation.

This project was installed to assist with the early opening of a new triage centre at New Cross Hospital that was awaiting delivery of new air handling equipment. This temporary HVAC unit satisfied the need for full fresh air supply whilst maintaining internal temperatures for comfort.

This project used a ACR 65 heat-pump AHU Read the full case study here.

Temporary Ventilation hire at the RSH in Southampton.

We provided temporary ventilation with a heating function to support an ongoing AHU replacement programme.

Critical to the success of this project was an on-going support package that adapted the system to a rolling programme of various AHU replacements.

This project used a ACR 80.60 AHU with LTHW heat exchanger skid. Read the full case study here
