Rapid Medical Response Facility Flooring

Rapid Medical Response

Field Hospital

For temporary field hospitals and facility conversions implemented in response to major, immediate medical needs, speed of installation is of high importance. At Tate, we offer several cost-effective, structural solutions that can be rapidly deployed and easily installed to address the flexibility and scalability of the facility. Raised access floors, prefabricated walls and structural ceilings benefit patients and healthcare workers by establishing a safer and cleaner healing environment.

For GSA projects Tate has an account assigned to disaster recovery.

Why Raised Floors

Field Hospital

The speed of installation and ease of distribution for critical services are making raised access floors a key solution for temporary medical facilities required to address the growing medical demands of the COVID-19 pandemic. Raised floors are a prefabricated modular system that can install rapidly, and Tate’s highly automated manufacturing facility can keep pace with the most demanding deadlines. Distributing power, data, air, gas, plumbing and other critical infrastructure under a raised floor in a field-build or converted alternative healthcare facility for coronavirus holds many advantages, including:

Benefits of Tate Raised Floors

Distributing power, data, air, gas, plumbing and other critical infrastructure under a raised floor in a field-build or converted alternative healthcare facility for coronavirus holds many advantages, including:

  • Alleviates overhead load bearing requirements of physical structures.
  • Easily levels rough or sloped surfaces such as parking lots and garages.
  • Elevates medical facility above existing drainage and run-off design
  • Puts services closer to occupants for easy access.
  • Nearly unlimited capacity for services with full range of floor heights.
  • Installation of services is faster underfloor than with overhead distribution.
  • Underfloor plenum can be used for positive pressure supply air or negative pressure return air.
  • Creates a scalable environment that can easily be expanded for continued development.
  • Access floors install quickly with a small team of installers.
  • Durable structural support system can handle the installation of prefabricated modules over the floor.
  • Product is non-combustible with class A flame spread.
  • Electro-deposition painted for corrosion resistance.
  • Highly automated USA manufacturing facility to meet critical deadlines with minimal staff.
  • Easy to uninstall when the field hospital is no longer needed, resulting in minimal impact to the original building structure.

Why Containment Wall Partitions

Containment wall partitions are extremely useful in facility conversions and mobile tent units to create individual treatment areas for coronavirus patients. Walls can be reconfigured and mounted quickly, allowing for improved personal care and scalability as patient numbers fluctuate. Some of the advantages to a modular wall system include:
 

Benefits of Tate Containment Wall Partitions

  • Quickly and easily construct the necessary sized patient care facilities for expanding operations.
  • Modular wall system creates flexible rooms and spaces that can be adapted for changing patient care demands.
  • Allow segregation of air streams and create zones of different static pressures.
  • Prefabricated containment wall partitions can be installed quickly with minimal crew sizes.
  • Can be mounted to a raised floor or slab, limiting the need for overhead connections.
  • Durable walls made of aluminum and polycarbonate that resist corrosion and are easy to clean and sanitize.
  • Varying levels of transparency for creating privacy or better line of sight to the patient. Also creates the opportunity to transfer natural daylight to patients.
  • Made-to-order wall heights up to 20’ are fully customizable in any length.

Why Structural Ceilings

Tate FieldH1
Structural ceilings can be attached to the demountable wall system or hung from the building’s original structure overhead to allow for the installation of lighting, ceiling tiles, HVAC and other service distribution. Manufactured for rapid deployment, the Tate structural ceiling systems include engineering hanging and connecting devices to maintain grid squareness and spacing during installation without field measuring and cutting.
 

Benefits of Tate Structural Ceilings

  • Can support heavy duty load requirements with spans up to 8’, further for light duty.
  • Add overhead distribution platform for facilities with inaccessible ceiling heights or non-structural components such as tents.
  • Faster and easier to install than other grid systems.
  • Grid member center-to-center spacing can be selected to accommodate your specific project need.
  • Eliminates the need for multiple trades on-site for installation and removal.
  • Experienced product manufacturer and contracting teams for rapid deployment.

Airflow Design Options

Airflow can be controlled within each individual patient room using either down-flow or up-flow air distribution. In both cases, the airflow supply strategy will limit the amount of mixing with the existing air in the room. Up-flow, also called underfloor air distribution (UFAD) or displacement ventilation, uses the raised floor as the supply plenum. This design is commonly used in many applications today. Using natural convection, the cool air is supplied at or near floor level and then pulled up through the space toward the ceiling as the air warms. This floor-to-ceiling airflow creates a better indoor air quality by pushing the contaminants in the air toward the ceiling where they will be vented out of the room. In a medical facility, the diffusers would likely be mounted at the bottom of walls and other casework, a common practice in casino environments.
 
Down-flow design has been used extensively in lab and clean room environments. Acting in reverse of the more common UFAD design, the down-flow facility would use the raised floor as a return plenum. The clean air would be supplied from the ceiling as with traditional HVAC designs, only the air would be pushed toward the floor where a negative pressurized return plenum would be used to pull contaminates out of the space.
