Experienced medical gas installers and suppliers of medical gases

Our experienced medical gas installation team works seamlessly alongside other contractors on-site to ensure any pipe work remains a safe distance from your other services. We fully understand that every medical gas supply system is unique and we customise every single project we undertake to suit your individual requirements.

A medical gas piped system is designed to provide a safe, reliable and competent method of delivering Medical Gases from the source of supply to the relevant terminal unit. This is done by way of a medical gas distribution system. All medical gas installations are regulated and conform to specific standards of design and construction by the medical gases industry. Medical Vacuum is also provided by means of a gas pipeline system for both medical and dental patient use. In order to control occupational exposure to waste anaesthetic gas and agents, an anaesthetic gas scavenging system (AGSS) is in operation.

It is crucial to make sure that there is no possibility of a cross-connection between any medical gas system and that all the parts of each medical gas system, where connections can be made by users, are gas specific.

During the fitting stage of medical gas, comprehensive tests are carried out to establish that there is no cross-connection of the medical gases. Medical gas systems may be increased to those departments where respiratory equipment or surgical tools are serviced; these include electronic and biomedical equipment (EBME) workshops and sterile services departments (SSDs).

Medical gas piped systems should not be used to supply departments such as pathology and general workshops or mechanical services. These departments should be provided with separate gas installations, although it is advised they are constructed to the same specification as medical gas piped systems. They should not be provided with medical gas terminal units.
