This system has many patients including a great number of children and for this reason a large observation window has been installed. With the dimensions 2000mm wide x 1200mm high this provides an optimum view not only the medical staff but also anxious parents, to follow closely the examinations. The climate control specifications for RF room installed in clinical centers has become a very sophisticated part of the room design. For this project, the customer’s requirements were very strict and consequently special measures were taken to avoid dust particles swirling in the false ceiling void. This was achieved by designing a ‘guided’ ventilation system using stainless steel ducts; this choice of material minimizing deposition of dust within the ducts.
