Fire Doorsets and Architectural Ironmongery for today’s healthcare facilities have complex needs, doors and doorsets need to be able to deliver the highest performance standards together with practicality and security.
Factors to consider when specifying:
Traynor Williams offer a wide range of Fire doorsets for this sector. Fire Doorsets are tested in accordance with BS 476-22:1987 or BS EN 1634-1:2014.
The performance capabilities of fire doors in areas of significant constraints, such as X-ray, electromagnetic field and laser operation pose a number of technical challenges. Combine this with the increasing integration of surgical and radio-diagnostic teams into areas of combined use means that fire door sets need to poses the attributes of both X-rays, electromagnetic or laser protection with additional performance characteristics. Furthermore, consideration needs to be given to maintaining the integrity of the overall design of the healthcare facility.
For those areas were a high level of infection and containment is required, fire doors are subject to rigorous hygiene and cleanliness management. Fire doors for areas that are not accessible by the public feature smooth surfaces, post formed door edges and frame sections, and sealed vision panels.
Areas to where both patients and the public have access are subject to strict controls. Fire doors need to be fully compliant but also have additional access capabilities.
