A hospital requirement varies from but not limited to
- Ensuring a high level of air quality especially in the ICU and operating rooms
- Ambient control regarding temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide levels
- Pressurization fans ensuring positive air pressure inside
- Pollution sensor measurement
- Lighting Control
- Climate control (HVAC)
The systems mentioned above can all be controlled and monitored through BMS system and KNX system.
GILA Electric provides Schneider BMS system and KNX system which allows to remotely monitor and control the building power, air condition system, lights, safety, and security systems in the building.
Both systems will be supplied, installed, and maintained by GILA Electric specialized teams.
Medical centers and hospitals are vital facilities that require constant and efficient safety and security measures in order to ensure the safety and well-being of patients, visitors, and all employees.
GILA Electric provides Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), Access Control System (ACS) and Fire Alarm System (FAS) with high efficiency in the health sectors.
Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is one of the most important security measures in any facility. An efficient CCTV system covers all areas, avoiding any blind spot, and serves as a means of deterrence and a live recording of all the happenings on the premises, it can be also equipped with face recognition feature.
Access Control System (ACS) enables the medical facility to control who has access to where. Hospital access control systems differ from other types of facilities as they are designed to restrict access to sensitive areas, prevent the spread of disease, track and prevent the theft of vital health equipment and drugs, and help protect both staff and patients.
These are the most common types of access control
- Keypad readers
- Swipe card readers
- RFID door readers
- Biometric door readers
- Smart lock door readers
In addition, by integrating the ACS with Public Address System (PAS), you will be able to set parameters to automatically make announcements in the event of any emergency in order to safety of patients, visitors, and staff.
From a fire and life safety perspective, healthcare facilities present many unique challenges in terms of their construction, systems, and operation. Each facility is different, and they are all extremely complex, with numerous non-standard spaces serving functions ranging from operating theatres to hospital wards, from diagnostics services to increased retail, dining spaces public areas.
However, the greatest risk with healthcare relates to the occupants rather than the building since many patients would be unable to help themselves in an emergency.
GILA Electric offers both addressable and conventional fire alarm systems through alliance with Esser by Honeywell and Fire Class by JCI company.
Wiring devices are current-carrying electrical or electronic products that serve primarily as a connection or control point for electrical circuits within a range of 0–400 amperes, 0–600 volts (AC and DC).
Wiring devices include a wide variety of items and appliances such as power outlets, wall plates, switches, dimmers, time switches, sensors, lamp holders, electrical boxes, plugs, connectors, and more.

In the event of any power anomaly or significant power outage, emergency power must continue to support critical medical equipment reliably, delicate medical devices, diagnostic equipment and IT servers from damage caused by power fluctuations, voltage variables, and surges.
Healthcare and medical facilities must be equipped with a robust power protection strategy, which should include resilient Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and backup generating system.
An Uninterruptible Power Supply must provide immediate backup power to a critical load when the power source fails, not just IT infrastructure within healthcare environments but it also provides critical emergency power for a wide range of medical devices, clinical equipment, patient monitoring and life safety applications including theatre lights, imaging, and diagnostic systems.
Since 1985, GILA Electric has been Schneider Electric authorized partner to distribute VL Galaxy, C-series and Easy UPS Modules.
These reliable products automatically take over after a power outage in order to keep all systems running safely for a certain time till the backup generators kick-in and power is stabilized. We provide both single – phase and three – phase UPS.
