Air Curtain Systems for Operating Rooms

The air distribution system in an operating room has a significant effect on the frequency of surgical site infections. One solution for controlling infection rates is the Price Air Curtain System.

HORD Linear Slot Diffuser

Unmatched air quality and safety for surgical spaces. The Price Air Curtain System uses the hospital operating room diffuser system (HORD), forming a four-sided vertical air curtain around the surgical area. Discharging air at 15° away from the patient, this system creates a physical barrier that separates the surgical area from the “old” air in the perimeter of the room, directing particulates toward return grilles.

What are
Air Curtain Systems?

Air curtain systems consist of laminar flow diffusers above the surgical area, surrounded by linear slot diffusers specifically engineered for operating room environments. This creates a "barrier" of clean air between the room perimeter and the critical surgical space and controls air velocity at the operating table level.
