Materials and Construction
The Panel Wall System has integrated electrical raceways and conduit, providing a single area connection for electrical wiring for each type of power (critical, normal and low voltage/communication). All medical gas piping shall be hard-piped (no flexible gas hose) and brazed to a single point of connection.
Integrated Accessory Rails
Numbers of integrated rails (horizontal and vertical) are to match final shop drawings. Accessory rails are clear etched
Laminated aluminum finish where devices are located. All other fascia to be laminated MDF. All Fascia panels (aluminum and laminated MDF) shall be removable for access for easy installation and maintenance of headwall services.
Medical Gas Outlets
DISS or Quick connection type, Console Style.
Medical Gas Manifold
Medical gas distribution shall be supplied by pipe drops to the single point connection above the unit as indicated on the drawing. All Medical Gas Outlets and piping shall be brazed and tested in accordance with CSA Z7396.1-06 standard and NFPA-99c. All Medical Gas piping shall be
Type L copper pipe. Each outlet, piping and manifold shall pass a 24 hour standing pressure test.
Wire for standard and critical branch power circuits shall be #10 or #12 (as specified) type THHN stranded copper wire, 600 volt, with heat resistant thermoplastic insulation for hot (black) and neutral (white). Grounds shall be #10 THHN stranded copper wire (green). All ground conductors shall be
installed in conduit.
Grounding and Bonding
All ground conductors shall be installed in conduit or raceway. Each power receptacle shall have a ground conductor connected to a grounding screw. Where electrical terminations are located inside the Freedom Series Panel Wall, a grounding bus will be installed for each type of power, and shall be installed as to insure grounding for the complete power system.
Low Voltage Data Provisions
Shall be connected to device junction box via conduit or raceway. Amico Corporation shall include pull cord extending from junction box to service provision. Telephone Nurse Call patient station device shall be furnished, installed and wired by Low Voltage contractor.
Shall be Hospital Grade 15 or 20 amp, 120 or 277 volt, UL listed and marked Hospital Grade. Amico shall furnish and install receptacles with wiring required, as shown on submittal shop drawings. Electrical contractor shall insure compatibility of plug on accessory equipment to be used with these devices: Duplex Receptacles shall be NEMA style 5-15R or 5-20R, color Ivory for use on normal power circuits, and color Red for use on critical branch power circuits.
The Panel Wall is Made Up of Several Components:
- Vertical sections where the services are located. These components have built vertical and/or horizontal rails systems and reveals as well as laminate finished front panels attached. These components are installed on the finish wall (after drywall installation). Electrical and med gas terminations are located above the ceiling; please refer to approved submittal drawings for project specific details
- Studded central section with removable laminate panels for bed area. This component is located between the vertical sections (Listed at #1) .This section is installed on the finish wall and has built in horizontal aluminum reveal or rails. it can accommodate a bed locator system or bed bumpers. Also can accommodate decorative resin panels with built-in LED lights. Please refer to approved submittal drawings for project specific details.
- Studded left/right section with removable laminate panels These components are located left or right of vertical sections (Listed at #1). These section are installed on the finish wall and have built-in horizontal aluminum reveal or rails. Please refer to approved submittal drawings for project specific details.
- Cabinets for IT stations, patient lift station or glove storage components. These components are made of particle board with laminate finish. Please refer to approved submittal drawings for project specific details.
