The revolution of Sanilux® modular operating rooms

SANILUX® is the range of specialized modular operating rooms for the sanitary world and surgical block of PREMO, a company owned by ALIBERICO, and a pioneer in space compartmentalization since 1965.

Among the many advantages offered by the SANILUX® modular system are the removability of the panels for quick inspection and agile maintenance, reduced assembly times and the elimination of waste and handling on site. It is an operating room with custom-designed and manufactured parts.

The interior structure is wide, allowing the passage of installations through it, a particularly interesting quality for operating rooms, due to their high number of cables, pipes, ducts, etc.

On the other hand, the vertical joints between panels are carried out through a proprietary design, the use of silicone is not required and its sterility and watertightness are guaranteed with double sealing point. In addition, this system allows leaded, which is essential for those operating rooms where it is necessary to perform radiological tests and all this without affecting the removability of the panels, as is the case of hybrid operating rooms, radiological rooms and high-performance rooms.

The panels that make up this modular system are larcore® panels, manufactured by ALUCOIL and machined in Alintra Systems, Alibérico Group companies, and are formed by two layers of aluminum with an inner honeycomb structure also in aluminum, which provides rigidity, flatness, excellent mechanical properties and lightness.

Recently, Grupo Premo has carried out the installation of a complete surgical block of 6 operating rooms, 3 of them hybrid in addition to the corridor of the clean area for the Vithas Group in its hospital complex in Madrid in Arturo Soria street and a hybrid operating room of large dimensions, along with its control room for the Clínica Universidad de Navarra (CUN) in Madrid.

Thanks to the versatility and advantages offered by SANILUX®, more and more hospitals and clinics are opting for this high-performance product.

ALIBERICO CONNECTS ITS FIRST PHOTOVOLTAIC INSTALLATION FOR SELF-CONSUMPTION AT ITS FACTORY IN ALICANTE, RedBOND COMPOSITES.

With this investment, Aliberico expects to obtain environmental benefits equivalent to avoiding the annual emission of 200 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere and the plantation of 400 trees.

Madrid, Tuesday 1 February.- Aliberico, the leading private family-owned Spanish and European manufacturer of semi-finished aluminium products, has completed the connection of its first solar photovoltaic roof installation for self-consumption at the factory of its subsidiary RedBOND Composites, in Alicante.

The installation consists of 980 solar panels, with a power of 445.90kW, and with it Aliberico expects to obtain environmental benefits equivalent to avoiding the emission of 200 tons/year of CO2 into the atmosphere and the planting of 400 trees.

This investment is part of the Aliberico Group’s Sustainability Plan, which in 2022 focuses on promoting the Circular Economy and the drastic reduction of CO2 emissions, certifying the Group’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Specifically, the action carried out in RedBOND is focused in the SDG7 (affordable and clean energy) and SDG 13 (climate commitment).

« Aliberico’s purpose is to take care of people and the environment with advanced solutions in aluminium, an infinitely recyclable material. Our culture, based on continuous improvement and respect for the environment, has made our brand a reference for industrial sustainability, and we will continue to advance along this path in the upcoming years, » says Clemente González Soler, president of the Aliberico Group. 

Cubierta Solar, specialised in photovoltaic installations, has been the company in which Aliberico and RedBOND have relied to carry out the analysis, design and installation of the solar roof. This company is currently working on the analysis of the Group’s needs with a view to transferring these investments to the rest of its factories.

Luis Navarro Buciega, Manager of Cubierta Solar, highlights the importance of « leading companies in their sectors, such as Aliberico and its subsidiary RedBOND, taking the step and demonstrating their confidence in clean energies. An example of how it is possible to manufacture more efficiently, generating savings and providing significant benefits to the environment« .

RedBOND Composites, specialised in the manufacture of aluminium composite panels for digital printing, interior decoration and signage, is currently undertaking the expansion and modernisation of its factory in order to increase its export capacity. In this context, and in order to reduce CO2 emissions, it has chosen solar energy to cover part of its electricity supply, taking advantage of its privileged location for this type of installation.

Since the start of its activity in 2012, Aliberico has constantly investing in RedBOND, creating economic and social wealth in the area. A first production line was followed by a second one in 2018 with highly advanced technology that allowed to double its production capacity. In 2022, apart from the investment in the photovoltaic installation, it expects to complete the construction of a new warehouse.

RedBOND Composites exports more than 90% of its production and has doubled the number of employees in just 5 years.
