A healthcare facility’s top objective is to protect patients, and this includes protection from airborne infectious disease. Dust, mold, and spores found in the space above a suspended ceiling, or within walls, are components of airborne infectious disease. Patients, in particular surgery and immuno-compromised patients, should be protected from these components of airborne infectious disease.
Poking holes through, or lifting, ceiling tiles to pass antennas or cables is not acceptable in hospitals, as these openings in the ceiling readily pass dust and spores. Wireless access points should be mounted in an enclosure which permits access to the equipment, and connection to the data cable, without lifting or penetrating the suspended ceiling.
Oberon enclosures provide access to ceiling-mounted wireless LAN access points and networking equipment without entering the area above the ceiling (the “plenum” space), helping to protect vulnerable patients from airborne contaminants and simplifying ICRA procedures.
- Help protect patients from airborne contaminants
- Simplify ICRA procedure compliance when servicing access points
- National Electric Code (NEC) compliance
- Physically secure equipment for clear cut HIPAA compliance
- Low profile, flush to ceiling, aesthetic, professional installation
Healthcare environments must anticipate rapid growth in wireless and wired infrastructure. Oberon’s wireless and zone enclosures can simplify wireless and structured cabling growth, moves, adds, and changes in Healthcare facilities. The ceiling enclosures have a back-box which creates a dust barrier between the area above the ceiling and below the ceiling. Inside an enclosure, the access point can be serviced without lifting ceiling tiles. Save the time and money required to deploy a tent or barrier normally required to satisfy the ICRA procedure for above-ceiling work.
Model 1052: Locking, suspended ceiling access point enclosure for APs with external antennas
No need to deploy tents when servicing access points!
Oberon’s enclosures have interchangeable doors for wireless equipment. As technology migrates and updates or changes are made to the installed access points or antennas, the enclosure door can be swapped out (if necessary) without lifting ceiling tiles. Protect your investment and simplify migration to new technologies.
