Blackpool Hospital benefits from relationship with Rada


Market leading washroom controls manufactured by Rada, the pioneer of both mechanical and cutting edge digital washroom technology, have been supplied to the Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in Lancashire as part of an ongoing relationship.

2013 has seen Rada V12 showers, Rada Thermotap-3’s and wall mounted Rada Safetherm units supplied extensively at the Stroke and Observation Unit of Blackpool Victoria Hospital as part of the Trust’s commitment to providing patients and staff with purposefully designed, efficient washroom and showering facilities.

Rada V12 shower valves, installed at the Blackpool site during 2013, regulate flow to allow for increased water savings, and are Buildcert TMV3 scheme approved. For additional safety, the exposed V12 option features Rada’s Insutech™ technology, which reduces the surface temperature to a safe level to avoid excessive heat and resultant scalding.

Rada2Also installed in large numbers as part of the Stroke and Observation Unit project were Rada’s wall mounted Safetherm Clinical Taps. Their innovative design minimises water retention in the body and spout for improved bacteria control and feature a sequential long lever control for easier use under hospital protocols and improved hygiene.

Safetherm Clinical Taps were designed with nurses and other hospital staff in mind, with their 120° arc of movement utilised in their operation allowing users to operate the lever control easily with their elbows. As with the Rada V12 shower, Rada Safetherm Clinical Taps feature Insutech™ technology and are Buildcert TMV3 approved.

Bill Haughton, Technical Officer at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, comments:

“Our relationship with Rada goes back many years. This consistency enables us to access ongoing specialist support and provide the highest quality products and systems for the benefit of patients, staff and visitors.”
