LOS ANGELES, Calif. – February 18, 2020 – Mintie LLC, the global provider of indoor environmental systems, today announced the latest fully scalable Environmental Containment Unit (ECU) and mass isolation system designed to help prevent the spread of the deadly Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and other respiratory and airborne illnesses.
The Mintie ECU4 provides temporary isolation in response to a surge of patients, or an escalation – and can scale rapidly to accommodate large numbers of people or cover large areas including a hospital floor or wing. The ECU4 is designed for fast, easy set-up and can be readily expanded or subdivided.
The new ECU4 has been clinically evaluated and rigorously tested for efficacy of particle containment, ventilation and stability in health care environments for Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) containment requirement levels 1-4.
“In today’s highly connected world, viruses can travel faster and more readily than ever before and can occur in the most unexpected places,” said Kevin J. Mintie, President, Mintie LLC. “Facilities around the world need to be prepared for the latest outbreak and have the ability to contain the spread quickly and efficiently. The new Mintie ECU4 is designed to give transportation hubs, hospitals, schools, military facilities and other locations the preparedness they need to combat a pandemic or public health emergency.”
Scalability and flexibility are decisive qualities for emergency preparedness, since it is never possible to anticipate the size, scale or speed of a threat. The ECU4 solves the scalability issue with its modular design and expansion capabilities.
“When faced with a quickly unfolding public health emergency, flexibility is one of the most important factors in successful preparedness,” said James M. Mintie, Vice President of Products.
“The modularity and scale of our ECU4 gives organizations the ability to isolate and quarantine patients, thus providing a scalable response to a rapidly evolving set of circumstances.”
The ECU4 is available now for delivery across the U.S. and around the world. Mintie also provides training, service and support. Other Mintie products and services include solutions for water intrusion remediation, infectious material containment, HVAC quality control, and more.
