The Trusted Insulation For Healthcare Facilities
Thermal Insulation Materials for Healthcare Facilities Air Cooling System
Benefits of thermal insulation materials on HVAC systems
Healthcare facilities have strict requirements to ensure patients benefit from the best medical care possible. Armacell‘s flexible equipment insulation helps to increase energy efficiency and contributes towards a safer and more comfortable environment for patients and healthcare workers. Our solutions are used all over the world, to offer trusted operations where downtime is not an option. A peace of mind today, a better bill of health tomorrow.
HVAC Thermal Insulation Materials
We innovate in new technologies and focus on products that deliver superior technical performance. Now in its seventh generation, ArmaFlex® Class 0 is the exclusive flexible elastomeric foam insulation material with built-in Microban®antimicrobial product protection in Asia. Our most recent product launches include ArmaGel, the next-generation aerogel technology offering up to five times superior thermal performance than conventional insulation materials.
Medical and healthcare facilities have strict requirements for temperature, humidity and air quality, ensuring that patients can benefit from the best medical care possible. The resources required to operate and maintain such buildings are high - facilities where the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system is constantly switched on with little tolerance for down-time.
Air distribution systems that help to remove contaminants in the air could also spread unwanted noise and pollutants such as industrial fibers and dust particles. Hence, ArmaFlex is the internationally trusted thermal insulation material for air ducts and chilled water systems in healthcare facilities.
ArmaSound® SuperSilence Ductliner infused with Microban® technology is an acoustic liner for duct having innovative foam-based open-cell duct structure used in commercial as well as residential projects for effective noise reduction. ArmaSound insulation products are extremely effective in helping to create a soundproof insulation system when installed correctly. In addition to that, ArmaSound®Super Silence Ductliner has in-built anti-microbial Microban®product protection which prohibits the growth of mold/fungi/microbes over its surface. Along with its dust and fiber-free characteristics, this product thus helps in improving the indoor air quality.
Microban antimicrobial chemistries are continuously working within the molecular structure of ArmaFlex Class 0 products, creating an inhospitable environment for microbes to grow and multiply. Product protection begins to work as soon as a microorganism comes into contact with a product surface and the Microban antimicrobial protection penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism, disrupting the cell and making the microorganism unable to grow and reproduce. The antimicrobial protection then works continuously to maintain a consistently lower bio-burden than would be expected on a product without Microban protection.
Microban antimicrobial technologies have undergone extensive independent laboratory testing and have a long history of safe use. The biocidal active components of Microban antimicrobial additives are notified with the Biocidal Products Regulation and approved for use by the Environmental Protection Agency of the United States of America.
Part 6 specifies a method of test for providing a comparative measure of a flat material or assembly's contribution to the growth of a fire taking into account the combined effect of several factors. Read more.
The FM approval or the FM 4924 standard is an approval requirement for insulation material used on the exterior of non-combustible pipes or ducts. This standard uses a full-scale pipe chase test for tube insulation and a full-scale room test for duct insulation (sheets). Read more.
