STARC Systems, a manufacturer of temporary modular wall containment systems used for occupied renovations, announced today that it has been deemed ‘essential’ and will refocus all production on instant isolation solutions to dramatically increase the number of units available for healthcare facilities throughout the country, helping to protect more healthcare workers and patients and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Typically, STARC Systems modular wall solutions are used in occupied healthcare renovations to eliminate dust, debris and pathogens from impacting patients and employees. Now, rather than keeping pathogens from escaping a construction site, these panels are used to eliminate the spread of COVID-19 by creating instant negative pressure isolation anterooms and airborne infection isolation rooms (AIIR).
STARC Systems’ isolation rooms exceeds the ICRA Class IV and ASTM E-84 healthcare requirements for infection control and fire/smoke spread and its surfaces are easily disinfected. They have continued to be used at national healthcare facilities, such as Massachusetts General Hospital, Cleveland Clinic and Seattle Children’s in occupied renovations to meet the highest infection control standards.
