Cattani launches new plant-room website packed with useful information

Maintenance and Servicing Internet

The design of your plant-room can have a large impact on your practice. Seemingly small decisions at the design stage can have a large impact in the future, from how well and long your equipment will last, to how much noise people in and near your practice will hear from the plant. A good awareness of the different options available in making these decision and the advantages and disadvantages associated with each, will help you make informed and considered decisions.


To help with this process, Cattani has recently launched a new plant-room website at www.plantroom.com.au outlining the most common of such choices and options.

The site presents a range of information, divided into the following main topics:

  • Location: Identify potential locations for a plant-room in and around your practice and assess which will work best for you, your staff and your equipment.
  • Noise: Reducing noise levels in the plant-room and how to stop noise escaping from the area. How to achieve minimal noise emissions with a sealed plant-room.
  • Temperature: Controlling the temperature of your Plant-Room to get maximum longevity and reliability from your plant equipment. Different methods of ventilation and temperature control, the advantages of different systems and considerations for each.
  • Security: Considerations around security of your plant-room to ensure your equipment stays where it should.
  • Access: How to design a plant-room that will allow technicians to maintain, correctly diagnose and repair equipment, quickly and effectively.

As well as information on the above topics, the site also has technical information on other plant-room issues. There is a section dedicated to pipeline design, which lists maximum runs of suction line and how things such as branches and rises through slabs should be done.

For those interested in exactly how the equipment within their plant operates, there is also information on things such as semi-wet suction lines and amalgam retention systems. Within the coming months, the site will also include video to illustrate certain points regarding plant-room functionality.

Cattani believes the site is very much in its early stages and plan to continually develop the content, with the aim of making it an indispensible tool for anyone planning a new practice, or making upgrades to an existing one.
