The ideal flexible hose for plumbing requirements in hospitals
Developed in response to concerns from healthcare authorities, our flexible hoses comply with stringent regulations regarding the prevention of microbial growth and cross-infection, making Qualflex™ Excel flexible hoses the recommended choice for water-based applications and plumbing requirements in the healthcare industry.
Our team of product engineers have an extensive understanding of the integrity required for healthcare applications, which we are able to share with clients. Our solutions-based approach to manufacturing ensures we engage with clients’ own resources to develop solutions to be fully compliant with both UK and international homologations. The result is an established range of quality products that meet and exceed the demands for medical equipment manufacturers supplying medical equipment, healthcare, and dental care markets.
Our Qualflex™ Excel range of flexible hoses has been developed in response to Health and Safety Executive concerns over poor quality imports and their potentially hazardous use in hospitals and schools. With its robust construction and excellent crush resistance, the semi-flexible PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) liner complies with stringent regulations for the prevention of micro-bacterial growth and cross-infection, and the PEX range is available fully approved by the Water Regulation Advisory Scheme (WRAS) hot and cold potable water up to 65°C. EXCEL flexible hoses feature a unique green tracer band for easy identification against other materials.
Our team of experienced product engineers have supported many OEMs to develop fully compliant flexible hoses and solenoid valves for medical equipment and bathing systems, including walk-in baths, disabled showers and wet room enclosures – often found within residential care homes and hospitals.
Hydralectric has also worked with NHS Estates on several high-profile developments, supplying standard and project-specific flexible hoses for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning installations. Please see our Building Services page for more information.
