NHS Dental Services

Units supplied by Air Design have been installed in the dental facility at Dunbar Hospital in Thurso, Caithness, Scotland. Air Design collaborated with fellow Elta Group companies on the NHS project in order to meet the unit’s requirements as closely as possible and secured the order on the basis of price and service. The facility, built at a cost of around £1.3 million, houses dentists and hygienists whose turnover is mostly generated by the provision of NHS services.

Air Design supplied one Double Deck and one Side-By- Side HRU, both incorporating forward curved single or double inlet centrifugal fans, plate-to-plate recuperator, electric or hot-water heating coils and pleated panel filters within both air streams. The units have a rigid aluminium framework, with purpose built corners for added strength.

For ease of installation and maintenance, each unit comprises slide rails and entry points on either the top, bottom or side, offering easy access to components with minimal effort and providing hanging, stacking or joining configurations. Units are acoustically and thermally lined with additional acoustic treatment available on request.
