There are a number of important characteristics to consider for doorsets within the medical environment. Consideration should be given to the performance and design aspects in relation to legislation, British Standards and NHS requirements, whilst aesthetical consideration is paramount.

Doorsets within the Healthcare sector often call for a number of high performance features and we are able to provide all aspects of these. Often a hospital requires many differing functions from doorsets and these features may include:

  • High fire resistance to FD120 doors
  • High acoustic rating doors
  • Privacy glass doors
  • One-way viewing doors
  • Hygienic doorsets
  • Radiation reducing doorsets
  • Door and frame leading edge impact PVC protection
  • Security and security access doors
  • Anti-ligature ironmongery doors
  • Over-sized doorsets

RW Joinery will offer antibacterial lacquer on veneered doorsets and can offer a fully PVC clad solution with integral glass vision panels evidence for greater hygienic performance.

Privacy is an important part of hospital care so RW Joinery’s privacy glass doors can be an essential feature of many wards. The monitor of patients is also of prime importance so our one-way viewing doors are ideal for patient observation.

Safety to staff members against radiation is of prime consideration in many medical establishments. Due to the sheer volume of x-rays and other types of radiation-required examinations they attend to, their safety cannot be compromised with a poor quality door. You can be assured that our bespoke doors and doorsets can be made to your radiation specification.

At RW Joinery we understand the importance of hygiene in a medical environment. We can provide a full consultation to discuss your hygiene standard requirements. Our craftsmen can then provide and install high quality sanitary doors.

Patients’ safety is of high priority to any health establishments whether it be to protect the patients from an external source or from themselves. Our security access doors can help to ensure that only authorised personnel can enter the room or building. We can also provide anti-ligature ironmongery doors for protection.

Often in a health establishment there are a range of rooms requiring large doorsets, which need to be bespokely created. Our wide range of sources and talented craftsman mean that we can design and install your ideal doorset. We have a choice of finishes which means that your design does not need to be compromised due to the size of the doorset.

If sound protection is important to your establishment, for instance in helping patients to sleep, then we can offer high acoustic rated doors. Noise from machinery can also be a reason for acoustically sound doors, as prolonged exposure to loud noise could cause loss of hearing for staff and patients.

Without the proper fire regulation doors, a fire can become easily out of control. With our specialist doors and doorsets we can ensure you have easier control of a possible fire outbreak. This can provide the appropriate amount of time needed for the fire service to reach the establishment and potentially save many lives.
