Clean Air Units

Achieve effective unidirectional airflow and ultra-clean sterile air in your clinic

The importance of optimal hygiene and clean air

At Spectrum, we recognise how crucial it is to maintain a high standard of cleanliness in operating theatres. That’s why we are proud to offer a best-in-class range of clean air units, helping you achieve an ultra-clean surgical environment.  The various surgical procedures that can benefit from this technology include plastic surgery, ENT surgery, eye surgery, and orthopedic procedures such as knee, ankle and hand surgery.

Having inadequate air handling can lead to a number of complications, including a heightened risk of infection for patients. Therefore, keeping the air free of bacteria-carrying particles is crucial for minimising these risks, building patient trust and maintaining a high standard of care. 

Meeting the required standard

As experts in bringing high-quality clean air units to market, each of the solutions we offer helps hospitals and clinics meet the strict regulations that are applied to operating theatres. 


By choosing one of our clean air units, you can rest assured that you will be providing your patients with the best in localised ultraclean air, meeting the high standards required for surgery including ophthalmology as referenced in the Royal College of Ophthalmologist Theatre Facilities Guidelines.

Features and benefits of our clean air units 

We recommend our clean air units as the perfect alternative ultraclean environment to a conventional operating theatre. The flexible operating unit offers a wide range of benefits including: 

  • Location independence – our clean air units are incredibly versatile and can be placed in almost any clean, draught-free room with wipeable services.
  • Cost efficiency – using a clean air unit costs significantly less than the costs involved with constructing and running a conventional operating room and air handling units.
  • Increased surgical capacity – easing the demand for ophthalmology and other surgical procedures whilst improving the quality of patient care
