Hospital environments are particularly tough on doors and door frames. With traffic flowing through them 24 hours a day, damage is inevitable; from porters’ trolleys, beds, wheelchairs, staff and patients.
With fire and patient safety of paramount importance, damaged doorsets have to be repaired or replaced quickly, often at great expense.
What do you need from a door?
According to a recent survey on the challenges facing facilities managers, and those responsible for fire doors, the biggest challenges they face are:
“Maintaining My Fire Doors”
“Door Lifecycle Too Short”
In our experience the key criteria for a fit for purpose hospital door are:
- withstand impact damage from trolleys etc.
- maintain fire integrity (if a fire door)
- look good now, and stay looking good
- quick & inexpensive to repair, on site
- easy to clean surface
