The new range of innovative area valve service units (AVSU) from GCE Healthcare offer straightforward installation, use and maintenance.
Easily installed into all wall mounted configurations, this compact, space saving, modular design is highly visible and simple to use. It is offered with a custom wall-to-ceiling cover panel which provides a flexible set up, customisable to each individual requirement.
Designed to supply up to six gases and compliant with stringent UK Department of Health guidelines, the units are fitted with an integrated alarm and, for added security, an emergency valve is accessed through a unique pull-off cover with its own break tab.
As safety is our paramount concern, all the emergency gas supplies are connected through gas-specific NIST connections and the unit can be securely closed and locked after the gas supply is connected, while still allowing easy access to the ball valves.

From a report of the 13th of March 2020 WHO (World Health Organisation) states that most people with COVID-19 develop a only mild or uncomplicated illness, approximately 14% will develop a severe disease that requires hospitalization and oxygen support, and 5% will require admission to an intensive care unit. This means for GCE Healthcare that the demand of our medical gas handling products is increasing significantly.
To meet the increasing demand of our various medical gas controlling products, GCE Healthcare will temporarily increase the production capacity of Medical Regulators, Flowmeters, Portable Oxygen Concentrators and other medical gas handling equipment by in our production facilities in Czech Republic, United Kingdom, China and North America.
“To meet this increased demand, GCE Healthcare will add extra shifts wherever possible in our production facilities and allocate more resources to support our healthcare systems around the world at this challenging time,” says Mike Galvin, Managing Director, GCE Healthcare.
