Client: University of Strathclyde
Type of works: supply of Leaderflush Shapland's Plasform® Unique doorsets with Hygieniform® antimicrobial coating.
Specialist environments call for specialist designs. When specifying materials for the construction of sensitive areas in industrial environments such as pharmaceutical areas, laboratories, clean rooms, food processing units and high-tech industries, the need for doorsets that contribute to a contamination-free environment has never been greater. Thats why performance doorsets from Leaderflush Shaplands Plasform® Range were the perfect solution for the University of Strathclydes new biomedical building.
The University of Strathclyde has recently been recognised for its high teaching standards by achieving second place out of 100 entrants in the Guardian University poll for Pharmacy and Pharmacology. By harnessing its knowledge in these fields, the University has created the Strachclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) and invested in building a new biomedical building.
237 Leaderflush Shapland doorsets were specified for the SIPBS new biomedical building, including Plasform® Unique doorsets from the Plasform® range of post-formed doorsets. Specified to incorporate Leaderflush Shaplands Hygieniform Mist high impact PVC facing material, the Flushglaze® flush glazing system and to provide up to 60 minutes fire resistance, the Plasform Unique® doorsets were the natural choice for such an environment where hygiene, durability and performance are of extreme importance.
Flushglaze® provides a completely flush joint with rebated acrylic outer glazing panels and combined with Hygieniform® high impact PVC, helps to create a low maintenance, easy to clean durable finish. Hygieniform® is Leaderflush Shaplands exclusive high impact PVC facing options, available in a range of 16 colours, which contains the Hygienilac® antimicrobial additive through its full thickness, killing harmful bacteria such as C.diff, MRSA, Salmonella and E.coli and does not support the growth of bacteria.
