Covid compliant ventilation system for dental practices and surgeries

How can dental surgeries meet Government guidance with a ventilation system using Aerosol Generating Procedures (AGP)?

R&B Industrial Ltd. can offer services in enabling dental practices and surgeries to meet recent Government guidance following the outbreak of the Coronavirus / Covid19; providing a Covid compliant ventilation system specifically suited for your workplace.

Covid compliant ventilation system

We are able to provide a simple ventilation system for surgeries and dental practices using Aerosol Generating Procedures (AGP), which meet the Government guidance providing a negative pressure in treatment rooms with a minimum 15 air changes per hour. 

This will assist in your infection protection and control (IPC) strategy as air can be simply be exhausted safely to the atmosphere or possibly filtered ensuring all bacteria, spores, aerosols etc are removed effectively.

Aerosol / smoke tests 

We can also perform aerosol / smoke tests to give an indicative time to safely clear the air in the room. A larger more uniform airflow rate could provide a shorter clearance time.

If no forced ventilation is used and AGP is carried out, it is recommended that the room is left vacant with the door closed and windows open for one hour, before performing a terminal clean.

Local ventilation

We can also provide ‘local’ ventilation (flexible extraction arm), positioned within approx 250mm to the mouth, for extracting aerosols vapours, mists / droplets and potentially contaminated with Covid19 virus. The ventilation units are fitted with all the necessary stages of filtration to ensure the air can be safely returned to the working atmosphere.

Finally, we can provide face fit testing for staff

Particularly during these challenging times, it can be difficult to know exactly what to do first when it comes to having a new ventilation system and/or local ventilation installed. That’s why we offer turnkey solutions to our customers; offering consultation and advice, as well as design, manufacture, and installation.
