Anti-Microbial Easy-Clean Materials
Angel Guard units use materials that are naturally anti-microbial. For example the pipework for both the hot, cold potable and waste water is all copper (stainless steel in Scotland). The Hygienic Mixing Valve (HMV) uses new technology and not rubber or plastic to mix the water. The front and sides of the unit are made from toughened glass as is the unique washbasin which makes cleaning very easy. The water outlet is also made from one piece of copper and does not contain any plastic parts, flow straighteners or aerators. It is hidden under a glass cover on top of the washbasin which is also very easy to clean.
Patent Pending Washbasin
Our patent pending washbasin which is based on a unique tubular shape is designed to ensure infection prevention by eliminating splashing - even when a persons hands are interupting the water flow. This means that water borne bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa cannot easily be splashed onto bedding, patients, sterile apparatus, nurses and doctors clothing, drug preparation equipment etc. The unique concealed tap outlet is hidden and positioned with an air gap so that cleaners and users cannot touch it and cross contaminate. The waste outlet and trap is wider than normal - allowing water to flow directly into the sewers uninterrupted and is fitted with a special device that eliminates trap contents from coming back up into the basin.
Cleaning Protection System
The innovative Cleaning Protection System available on our Michael units not only monitors who is cleaning the unit, for how long and when but it also alerts when unauthorised liquids are poured down the basin, shuts the unit off for decontamination and identifies who has done this so that they can be re-trained.
Infection Prevention Hygiene System
This patent pending system uses innovative technology to guide a user through a full handwash cycle. Using images (Gabriel) or a full video (Michael) and a countdown timer each stage of the handwash cycle is represented and carefully monitored. Users are identified (Michael) with full individual and group handwash history available for review by themselves and Infection Prevention Teams providing real-time and historic data to help ensure high levels of compliance are achieved and lives are saved.
