Hospital regulations and humidity control
With the growth of healthcare facilities in both number and size in recent years, and the design and building of these facilities becoming increasingly sophisticated and technological, their environmental impact and future maintenance becomes a vital factor to be considered. This is the case with most new buildings, however, humidity control in hospitals has always been of the utmost importance as it needs to be especially efficient and hygienic to meet current regulations and guidelines. Historically, only a small number of non-industrial projects, almost exclusively hospitals, were designed by dedicated engineers who were not usually specialized in humidification and dehumidification. Today we have hospitals of many hundreds of beds in every capital and even in smaller towns and cities, therefore, we think that discussing the application of humidity control equipment directly with the professionals who ensure the quality of these critical facilities is the way forward.
