Current Issues Clinical Washbasins Face

Updated: Jun 28

Clinical washbasins currently face many issues that our Angel Guard Units are designed to tackle.

Typically, levers for hospital mixers tend to not be set correctly and make contact with the wall. However, the main issue is that the lever itself creates a touch point, leading to contact with multiple users, increasing the risk of transmission. Given the conditions, the lever can quickly become a hotspot for pathogens to spread from user to user. Angel Guard tackles this with our hand free delivery of water, soap, and hand gel through our 100% touch free-unique cylindrical washbasin, eliminating a significant source for pathogens to spread. Simultaneously, thanks to its anti-splash design, our unique washbasin also eliminates splashing, another common way for pathogens to spread.

Another cause for concern is that many waste outlets are heavily contaminated with pathogens and biofilm, which leads to Carbapenemase Producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPEs) becoming commonplace, meaning a high degree of risk. Unfortunately, users depositing liquids and other such waste to the outlets creates a food source for these bacteria.

Luckily, Angel Guard has a solution for this too as all units have a waste and trap made from copper, chosen for its anti-microbial attributes. The waste outlet has also been enlarged to prevent blockages. Angel Guard Units also have on-board detection systems, which can detect if any other liquids are poured down the waste.
