Illinois hospital installs automatic door switches

 For a new surgical suite

For a new surgical suite at St. Margaret's Hospital, Spring Valley, Ill., the surgeons, administrators, and facility managers wanted to find an automatic door that would keep incoming germs to a minimum. Specifiers chose the U-WAV touchless sensor from Larco to activate the main access doors to the surgical area. The U-WAV sensor switch works by sensing motion—the wave of a person's hand—at a selectable detection range from 4 to 20 inches.
