ModTruss Joins the COVID-19 Fight
By teaming with local EMS and medical professionals,
ModTruss has developed solutions to the crosscontamination epidemic that is occurring in and throughout
the nation. In response, the company created a Bio
Containment Unit (BCU) to host COVID-19 individuals, as well
as a Common Area Barrier (CAB) to separate patients from
each other while they are on site in proximity. Furthermore,
ModTruss and its nation-wide dealer network are poised
and ready to build temporary exterior structures to augment
the overflowing volume of individuals needing care.
ModTruss developed a tool to help people distance
themselves when in difficult situations, such as being in
a doctor's office waiting room. In a typical waiting room,
people are standing and sitting next to each other. The
Common Aera Barrier uses a polycarbonate solution to
place a wall between patients. ModTruss typically uses
this polycarbonate solution for modular buildings and
repurposed it for CAB. The polycarbonate solution makes
it easy to disinfect and wipe down for the next person.
What hospitals and clinics face during this epidemic is
a patient walking into a facility with the potential of having
COVID-19 and needing immediate isolation. But, due to the
lack of hospital beds, patients aren't getting immediate
isolation, which is then causing more contamination. For

This unit is made
to house COVID-19
patients in hopes to
stop contamination.

this, ModTruss
created a Bio
Containment Unit.
It is built out of a
standard 6-inch ModTruss. It is a 10-foot cube with an
8-foot cube inner working area. It has a .3-micron filtration
system that pulls air in on one side, and is then pulled out
by another micron filtration system on the other side,
exiting through the exhaust fan with clean air so those
outside of the unit are not at risk. The BCU has a front zipper
and rear zipper for forward and rear entry and a Velcro
system where you can roll a hospital bed in and Velcro it
back down. The negative air filtration system then pulls
the contamination in. It pulls air into it the unit rather than
pushing it out. The wall can be removed, and an additional
room can be added to is so that you can have a clean room
and a dirty room. The unit takes about an hour to build
with simple hand tools and is completely contained.
