Healthier Spaces Project

Encompass Rehabilitation Center

The inpatient rehabilitation facility has one patient room that functions as a negative pressure infection isolation room. We helped maintain pressure and reduce air leakage within the room with our CALLA Health Zone AirAssure ceiling tiles.

The challenge

The center has a 360 sq. ft. room designed to operate as a pressure-controlled space. This specific room is a negative pressure room, meaning its goal is to isolate patients within from spreading infectious disease. The center had a problem maintaining the pressure when the doors opened and closed, requiring valuable time and resources to revert it back to the level required.

The solution

To maintain the pressure level needed, the facility replaced the existing ceiling panels with new CALLA Health Zone AirAssure ceiling panels from Armstrong Ceiling & Wall Solutions. When placed in a standard ceiling suspension system, AirAssure acoustical ceiling panels form a tight seal and reduce airflow leakage through the ceiling plane up to four times more than panels without AirAssure performance. By swapping the ceiling panels, room pressured increased.

The replacement of the ceiling only took a day, so extended downtime for the room was eliminated. Also eliminated were labor costs involved in caulking ceiling panel edges, an action some facilities are forced to undertake to achieve desired pressure.

"

We knew the ceiling would make a difference, but didn’t know how much. It performed much better than we imagined, nearly doubling the pressure differential in the room. We simply weren’t expecting that much of an increase.”

- Tim Roaten, President of Eastern Air Balance of Manheim, PA
