Operating Theatre

The operating theatre ceiling is the most important part of a hospital ventilation system. Also called UCVS (Ultra Clean Ventilation System), these sophisticated systems are actually a combination of a variety of elements, including gas tight welded pressure chambers, air filter housings or filter grids, HEPA filters, priming illumination and air diffusers. As a leading manufacturer of sterile air distributors and clean air components, MANN+HUMMEL's portfolio is second-to-none; from the latest low turbulence, laminar flow operating theatre ceilings through to ancillary equipment such as fluff separators, our systems are improving the day-to-day safety of patients across the world.

CG³

Introduction

Over the past decades we have successfully equipped thousands of operating theaters and our customers have enjoyed the quality of our systems for many years. CG³, the third generation of laminar flow ceiling from MANN+HUMMEL, combines our proven experience in clean air ceilings with the latest technologies, unsurpassed quality and effective cost management.

CG³ meets todays increased requirements for performance, flexibility and quality, whilst minimising cost of ownership with a low energy consumption.

A special aluminium profile construction enables the seamless integration of the CG³ system with media bridges, surgical lights and ceiling pendants, allowing the medical team to perform fluently with the surrounding equipment.
