Walsall Manor Hospital, based in the West Midlands, is managed by Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust and provides acute care and multidisciplinary services to around 260,000 people in and around Walsall. The new ICU has merged the hospital’s Intensive Therapy Unit (ITU) and the High Dependency Unit (HDU), to create an 18-bedded unit. Due to the nature of critical care, it was essential to maintain a safe and comfortable temperature for patients.
M&E contractor, Chase Insulations Ltd, installed 3000 lm of Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation on the HVAC pipework in conformance with Kingspan’s high standards. The insulation delivered a simple, low maintenance solution for effectively reducing heat transference and ensuring optimal heating and cooling system efficiency.
