Gilgen improves accessibility at Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

Gilgen improves accessibility at Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

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 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.

Gilgen SLX single sliding automatic doors with 2.2m x 1.8m glazed door leafs have been installed in two out-patient units. These large attractive doors, printed with the ROH logo, have helped to dramatically improve ease of access for patients and staff by replacing the previous heavy weight manual doors. Gilgen Door Systems has worked with the ROH Birmingham for over 3 years and provides support for the doors with planned maintenance visits to ensure reliability, whilst a 24/7 response service is also on hand in the event of breakdown.
