Rada provides critical support in fight against COVID-19


Thermostatic mixer taps installed in Nightingale and emergency field hospitals across the country

Washroom controls specialist, Rada, is working with critical care facilities to support staff and help the NHS win the fight against COVID-19.

Rada’s mixer tap, Safetherm, has been specified and installed in the Nightingale Hospitals and NHS emergency care facilities across the UK.

Designed specifically for healthcare environments, Safetherm is a thermostatic clinical tap that improves bacterial control and user safety.

Rada is also working with hospitals to adapt their existing facilities to help guard against the spread of COVID-19.

This includes installing additional handwashing stations at entrances and other access points to support infection control measures.

This has included some of the first installations in the UK of Rada’s new Intelligent Care range.

The digital tap is ideal for healthcare spaces as it minimises the risk of infection through non-touch controls and digitally-set thermal disinfection and duty flushing.

Katy Rogers, commercial business director at Rada, said: “We’re working incredibly hard to support critical care facilities and meet the immediate demand.

“Our manufacturing line is operational and our specialist healthcare taps and showers are being delivered to healthcare facilities across the UK – with some orders being delivered within 24 hours.

“Handwashing is one of the simplest, but most-important, tasks in helping to control the spread of the virus.

“And using washroom controls designed specifically for healthcare facilities can make a valuable contribution to this and keep staff and patients safe.”
