T-Safe® Shower Panels, combining point of use filtration and automatic flushing technology.
T-Safe® Shower Panel system solutions
The T-Safe® Shower Panel range has been designed specifically for building managers that are presented with the challenge of controlling the risk of exposure to harmful waterborne pathogens in facilities that have little used showers, are infrequently used or only seasonally occupied.
Utilising a combination of point of use filtration and automatic flushing technology T-Safe® Shower Panels provide an assured control measure forming part of an overall effective Water Safety Plan. The risk of stagnation can be significantly reduced through the use of fully programmable automatic flushing cycles aligned to an individual shower or whole buildings pattern of use. Flushing can also increase turnover of water in the system in an effort to achieve and maintain temperature control.
Above all, the use of point of use filtration technology provides an ultimate fail-safe mechanism by removing harmful waterborne pathogens from the water during showering, protecting end users and providing peace of mind.
The challenge of infrequently used showers and buildings
Buildings such as Leisure Centres, Sports Pavilions, Schools and Community Centres by the very nature of their design, varied occupancy levels and seasonal operating patterns can face significant challenges in relation to managing the risk from harmful waterborne pathogens whilst meeting the operational demand for showering and welfare facilities.
In such circumstances, ensuring that temperature control is consistently achieved and water turned over sufficiently to ensure that stagnation is avoided can prove to be difficult. Through risk assessment building managers can identify and implement a whole host of additional control measures such as surveillance sampling, manual weekly flushing, regular periodic cleaning and disinfection, daily pasteurisation of hot water storage vessels, decommissioning and recommissioning protocols in an effort to control the risk.
Although meaningful, these measures alone offer no guarantee of control and often rely on the diligence of the staff undertaking the task for it to be effective. Additionally the cost of such control measures, the management time required to govern and administer them can soon add up.
