Ultrasuite is a customizable air distribution and lighting solution specifically engineered for hospital operating rooms. High-output LED lighting combined with precision equalized laminar airflow eliminates the traditional “light ring”, opening valuable ceiling space for surgical equipment while optimizing contaminant removal from the surgical zone. Conforming to all ASHRAE 170 requirements, Ultrasuite is the perfect combination of performance, aesthetics and efficiency.

Flexible O.R. Lighting Solutions
MAXIMIZE USABLE CEILING SPACE
As technologies advance, the amount of surgical equipment in operating rooms has rapidly increased. In an effort to conserve floor space, ceiling mounted equipment has become an essential design element of modern operating rooms. The Ultrasuite dramatically reduces the HVAC footprint in the ceiling by incorporating high-performance LED lighting directly within the laminar flow diffusers.
As minimally invasive surgery becomes more prevalent, the need for high quality, flexible O.R. lighting solutions is more important than ever. Various lighting color temperatures, flexible dimming control and integrated green lighting allow the Ultrasuite to meet the unique requirements of modern healthcare facilities. Optional green lighting facilitates improved visibility of flat panel displays for the surgeon by enhancing images while also eliminating the glare that traditional overhead white lights cast on monitors.
CFD OPTIMIZED DESIGN
A highly engineered dispersion baffle and translucent polymer perforated face ensure even distribution of airflow within each diffuser module, regardless of system layout or inlet location. The Ultrasuite provides uniform, unidirectional laminar airflow across the face of the diffuser, preventing entrainment of room air to ensure a contaminant-free surgical zone. Every Ultrasuite system is provided with CFD verified performance.
Simple to Configure, Install, and Maintain
LEVERAGE SYSTEM FLEXIBILITY
The Ultrasuite makes use of a single large diffuser design, consisting of a number of laminar flow diffusers, with a 12 in. low profile common plenum. System layout is customizable with module sizes and configurations to suit any equipment layout. Inlets can be positioned on the side or top of the plenum to suit existing ductwork configurations or to optimize new construction.
With a low profile design, the Ultrasuite is easy to install in crowded ceiling plenums, making it easy to incorporate in both new construction and retrofit projects. The Ultrasuite ships in large, factory-assembled sections to minimize installation time, and the closed-cell gasketed joints ensure an effective seal between modules. Integrated balancing dampers at each module as well as factory installed and wired lighting with quick connect cables make set-up and commissioning simple and efficient. The flexible LED driver wiring allows for job specific wiring of normal and critical electrical circuits, as well as customized dimming and control solutions.
The Ultrasuite meets all ASHRAE 170 requirements for cleanability with flush mounted, stainless steel hardware to secure the removable diffuser face. The integrated LED lighting is IP67 rated to effectively seal out dust and liquid disinfectants and the inside of the plenum is designed for ease of cleaning. A remotely mounted control enclosure housing the LED drivers provides easy access for maintenance and replacement. High quality LED lights have a long lifespan, rated at 80% original brightness for 60,000 hours. If required, individual LED strips are easy to replace with tool-free replacement and quick-connect wiring.
Aldes Presents CAR-II with Fire Dampers
Aldes CAR-IIs with fire dampers are the only ETL Safety Certified assembled units on the market today.
American Aldes Airflow & Zone Control products like the CAR-II with fire dampers are designed to introduce flexibility and dynamic control to any central ventilation system and correct common ventilation issues such as stack effect and poor airflow balance. Millions of Constant Airflow Regulators (CAR) have been installed, and now they come assembled with fire dampers and the added safety assurance that only ETL Certification can provide.
For airflow precision with code compliance and life safety assurance, American Aldes airflow control devices are the best choice. Enjoy precise regulation of building ventilation while saving energy by reducing the load placed on heating and cooling systems. New specification sheets and installation instructions are now available on-line for the following models:
NEW Assembled Models with ETL Certification
No Need For On-Site Balancing
American Aldes CAR-II Constant Airflow Regulators are modulating ducts that automatically regulate airflows in duct systems to constant levels. Featuring a passive control element, this product responds to duct pressure without the need for electric or pneumatic sensors or controls.
The CAR-II is designed to compensate for changes in duct pressure caused by thermal stack effect, building pressure, or dust-clogged filters and provides a low-cost solution to balancing forced-air systems for heating, air conditioning and ventilation by eliminating the need for on-site balancing.
The CAR-II’s active control element is a unique aerofoil damper which lifts in response to increasing static pressure, regulating the free-area opening and maintaining airflow velocity according to specific system set points.
The ETL Listed Mark
The ETL Listed Mark is proof that a product has been independently tested and meets the applicable published standard. Intertek’s ETL Mark traces its history back to Thomas Edison’s lighting laboratories, pairing innovation, safety, and quality with speed, responsiveness, and urgency to help customers gain the certifications they need quickly and efficiently.
Standards ETL tests to for the North American Market
- UL / ULC
The ETL Mark is proof of product compliance to North American safety standards and is accepted across the US and Canada by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs), code officials, retail buyers, and consumers as proof of product compliance to published industry standards – in short, safety.
Today, the ETL Mark is the fastest growing safety certification in North America and is featured on millions of products sold by major retailers and distributors every day.
