Ceiling Columns

Amico Motorized Retractable Ceiling Columns provide gas and electrical power to an operating room in one convenient and centralized location. Retractable ceiling columns increase management of overcrowded areas when supplying medical gas and electrical services. When not in use, the columns can be easily stored by raising the telescopic portion, thus avoiding possible accidental contact with medical personnel.

The aesthetically pleasing stainless steel external panels are designed for easy cleaning. Up to 12 medical gas outlets and 12 receptacles can be used per column.

General Features

  • The column is offered with the optional choice of a single Nitrogen Control Panel or a single panel with manifold or a dual Nitrogen Control Panel.
  • The Motorized Retractable ceiling column provides a modern efficient method of supplying gas and electrical services in surgery or special care areas.
  • For use in anesthetizing locations, the gas outlets are bottom mounted. Units for specialized care areas have side mounted outlets to facilitate the use of secondary equipment.
  • When not in use, it can easily be stored away by raising the telescopic section. This will avoid possible accidental contact with medical personnel.
  • When required, the face of the column can be lowered to facilitate hook-up of services.
