Gilgen Door Systems has completed the installation of a number of automatic doors at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital (ROH) in Birmingham, designed to improve accessibility and patient care. The door systems include new automatic swing doors, folding doors and sliding doors at various locations across the Northfield hospital, which is one of the largest orthopaedic centres in Europe.
The ROH NHS Foundation Trust chose to automate two manual fire-rated swing doors in the HDU (High Dependency Unit) with technologically advanced Gilgen FD 20 swing door operators. Activated by push pad, the operators make access considerably easier for porters who transport heavy trolleys of medical supplies to and from theatre throughout the day. The powerful Swiss designed FD 20 is certified for use on fire doors providing up to 2 hours protection on timber door sets and incorporates advanced technology for extremely quiet, efficient and reliable operation.
