Gilgen Door Systems open doors at Rotherham Hospital

Gilgen Door Systems has completed the installation of a number of new automatic pedestrian doors and industrial doors at Rotherham Hospital, part of the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust. The doors are designed to improve ease of access, security and energy efficiency and have been installed as part of a wider refurbishment programme at the hospital. The installation includes Gilgen FFM automatic pedestrian doors, Rolegard® insulated roller shutters and Kwikroll® high speed doors.

Gilgen FFM folding pedestrian doors have been installed to the main entrance of the maternity wing and a main corridor leading to the Emergency Department. Gilgen FFM doors have proven their reliability in other locations throughout the hospital and are the preferred choice since they maximise the clear opening width of doors for ease of access.

Gilgen Rolegard® insulated roller shutter doors have been installed to the loading area and match a shutter previously installed by Gilgen. The Galfan coated steel automatic shutters feature an insulated panel that helps minimise heat loss. A digital key pad provides additional security along with a CCTV camera and secure office for authorised personnel. A Gilgen Kwikroll® high speed door provides access from the hospital corridor to the loading area.

Radio fob operated from each side, the Kwikroll features a blue fabric curtain with vision panel, full safety features and is linked in with the hospital’s fire alarm system to failsafe open. Kwikroll provides barrier free access to authorised vehicles during loading and unloading whilst minimising heat loss. The system helps improve the cleanliness of goods receipt areas, reduces building utility costs and minimises carbon footprint.

Gilgen Door Systems has also installed two Delta® folding shutters at the hospital. The shutters are positioned side-by-side to the maintenance bay of the hazardous waste disposal area. The largest shutter is 5.9 metres wide by 2.7 metres high and provides secure access to this area of the facility.
