Well-equipped hospitals

05/12/2020

Given the high number of people infected with Covid-19, hospitals have had to increase their bed capacity. Our teams, materials, solutions and customers have been helping them achieve this target in record time.

 Well-equipped hospitals

Saint-Gobain teams worldwide continue to do their utmost to help health care facilities. In Sweden, Dahl’s teams and their customers contributed to setting up a field hospital in the Stockholm exhibition center. This distribution brand, specializing in plumbing, heating, sanitation, ventilation and civil works supplies, managed this project with extraordinary agility. Without any planning, the teams had to work day-by-day as the project progressed. It took less than a fortnight to install the entire plumbing system and deliver an impressive quantity of products: 180 WCs, 60 x 300 l water heaters, etc. The success of this challenge was due in particular to the 35 Dahl installation customers who worked tirelessly on this huge project and have since remained available for any maintenance or repair work needed. Dahl’s partners, Peugeot and Ford, immediately lent two vans for the deliveries.

In the UK and Ireland, the Ecophon teams have helped health professionals reorganize the wards of more than 10 hospitals for Covid-19 patients. The acoustics systems specialist supplied products from the Ecophon Hygiene™ range developed for particularly demanding environments.
