Roxtec completes clean room contract for Belfast’s Royal Victoria Hospital
03 April 2012
Roxtec has completed its latest project in the clean room sector of the Royal Victoria Hospital, with its cables and pipe seals used in eight isolation rooms at the hospital’s new 12-storey Critical Care Building, which will include an emergency department, main theatres, an adult critical care unit, post natal beds and maternity outpatients.

“Roxtec has extensive experience in the clean room and laboratory sector,” saidRoxtec’s UK managing director Graham O’Hare. “Our cable and pipe seals not only protect the building and people in it from fire, flooding and explosion in this instance they also provide a vital air tight seal. The isolation rooms in the hospital require negative pressure ventilation allowing air to flow into the room but not escape out. Our seal can help achieve this and is approved for use in CL3 and CL4 contained rooms.”
O’Hare said Roxtec’s clean and contained room cable entry seal is specially designed to reduce the number of openings required for cables to limit the number of potential air leak paths.
“This project again demonstrated the innovative engineering behind our seals,” he said. “We believe we have the most advanced cable and pipe sealing solution in the clean room market. This seal also has a one hour fire rating and is lightweight enough to be inserted into a plasterboard roof panel. It is further designed to be simple and efficient to upgrade as it has built-in spare capacity to accommodate more cables if required.”
