At facilitywebsource.com, we carry many products and interior finishes that are applicable to the healthcare industry. So, how does a product get classified as suitable for healthcare environments? Well, it must pass specific tests and adhere to codes that comply with national fire safety and building standards. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sets the standards for every type of building application by developing, publishing, and disseminating more than 300 consensus codes intended to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and other risks. As far as hospitals and healthcare facilities are concerned, below are the codes you should keep an eye out for when ordering for your facility. To find more specific information about each NFPA standard, simply click the links below.

                                   

There are also other fire safety standards and tests that have been developed by the state of California under the Department of Consumer Affairs, specifically the Bureau of Electronic and Appliance Repair, Home Furnishings, and Thermal Insulation. Each of these standards developed by the Bureau to measure flame retardance are called Technical Bulletins and normally have an abbreviation of CAL. A full list with more information on each of these Technical Bulletins can be found here. These flammability standards are not only used in California, but also in other areas of the country. Click the links below to learn more about CAL 117 and CAL 133.

                                                                 

 



Pressure ulcers, more commonly referred to as bedsores, are lesions that develop on the surface of the skin due to lack of mobility and prolonged pressure to a specific area of the body. At first, the skin becomes become red and irritated, eventually turning purple. If left untreated, the skin can break open and become infected. At facilitywebsoure.com, we understand that prevention is better than the cure, so we are offering an array of products that can help reduce the risk of developing bedsores as well as aid in the treatment of existing sores.

All of our mattresses are therapeutically designed with a foam core to provide maximum pressure relief, comfort, and durability. We also carry multi-layer mattresses designed for advanced pressure distribution while also preventing friction and shearing. If you are looking to target a more specific area of the body, try our heel lifts that can also aid in the treatment of existing bedsores by creating a zero pressure cavity and air circulation to speed up the healing process. Also try our wheelchair cushions, made with viscous gel for optimized pressure reduction and comfort.
