Patient safety is one of the principles in healthcare... 'do no harm'. Using the Air Velocity Reducer reduces the risk for patients in the hospital getting an infection related to construction. When this unit is used, especially near the most vulnerable patients, I know they are better protected. Keeping the flow of air off the floor, where may microorganisms land, prevents the pathogens from blowing and landing on those who are at risk, thus reducing the risk of infection."

Implementing the Air Velocity Reducer was simple. It was an added peace of mind knowing that we were not only compliant with healthcare renovation standards, but we were taking an additional precaution to regulate the environment."
