Sealed finish meets infection control requirements at King’s cardiac cath lab

Managing director of Envirotect Limited Niven Smith has congratulated everyone involved in the successful installation of radiation shielding at a new facility at King’s College Hospital, London. The works were carried out on behalf of main contractor Neilcott Construction.

During the installation Envirotect encountered a number of challenges. In addition to the radiation shielding to the doors and windows, the frames and door components required encapsulating with high quality plastic. This provides a sealed finish to meet stringent infection control requirements that are necessary for the procedures carried out in the cardiac catheter lab.

Envirotect also manufactured a bespoke ‘speak transmission’ window for easy communication between staff and patients. The project was completed on time and within budget.
