Canadian controlled environment specialist have announced modular structures or pre-assembled PODs for rapid construction
Mecart is joining the fight against COVID-19 by delivering critical isolation rooms to hospitals and healthcare facilities. As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread globally, the need for dedicated treatment and patient space is increasing rapidly.
“Designing and building cleanrooms and clean-air environments is our core business, and one that we fully understand. We have the in-house engineering and manufacturing capacity to deliver solutions with short lead times to the Health sector. We will of course share our expertise in this critical time,” said Patrice Genois, Mecart’s Executive VP.
The addition of Mecart isolation rooms will drastically improve each hospital’s ability to serve its community during the current crisis. The rooms, which are available as modular structures or pre-assembled PODs, can be manufactured and delivered much more rapidly than standard construction.
Precision HVAC systems ensure that pathogens are contained, eliminating further spread of the virus while providing fresh air for patients and hospital staff. Post pandemic, these rooms can be reconfigured, moved and/or redeployed for a variety of other uses thanks to their complete independence from the host building.
Based in Quebec City, Mecart has been designing and manufacturing custom, modular cleanrooms for nearly 5 decades. The need for cleanrooms and clean environments spans many fields, from health-related applications such as pharmaceuticals, hazardous pharmacy compounding, research and clinical trials, to industrial uses in the electronics, aerospace and nanofabrication sectors.
Each individual client’s needs are met by Mecart’s custom design team.
Thanks to their wholly independent operation, with engineering and manufacturing all completed in-house, medical isolation PODs are available to hospitals and healthcare facilities in under 4 weeks.
