Commercial Door Systems for Hospitals and Medical Facilities

By Blog Master on 21 Feb 2023 In

When thinking of doors for use in hospitals or medical facilities the first items that may come to mind are automated doors for operating suites or separating care areas from hallways, the front entrance area or maybe the trauma center or emergency room entrance. There is a wide variety of additional access systems that might often be required at hospitals and medical facilities. These may include overhead and coiling doors for different purposes in different areas. For example, there may be a need for counter shutters, rolling (coiling) doors, side sliding security grilles and/or fire-rated doors. There may be a material receiving area with a need for either sectional or rolling (coiling) security doors, high-speed doors, and perhaps loading dock equipment.

✔ High-Performance Commercial Doors

DASMA (Doors & Access Systems Manufacturers Association) defines high-performance doors as doors distinguished by their ability to accommodate at least 100 cycles per day or operate at a 20-ips opening speed. Because of their frequent operation, these often come with features that allow for increased durability and user safety.

✔ High-Speed Commercial Doors

Metal high-speed doors are doors that operate at a minimum rate of 32 inches per second (ips) when opening, according to DASMA. When closing, a high-speed door operates at a minimum of 24 ips. This type of door also includes a mechanism for automatically reclosing itself. High-speed commercial doors are usually employed in factories and storage facilities. You're less likely to see them in high-hazard situations.

Counter doors and counter shutters are also available in standard, fire, and integral frame configurations. Like other rolling doors these are available in a variety of materials and finishes including galvanized steel, aluminum, stainless steel and even exotic wood slats.

✔ Interior Fabric High-Speed Doors for Hospitals and Medical Facilities

The Model 990 is an interior fabric high-speed door with a flexible bottom. The Model 991 is an interior door that features a strutless design to reduce operational noise as well as a patent-pending curtain lock which allows the door to withstand pressure and enables it to be repaired quickly in the field. The Model 992 is made of the same curtain material as the 991, but features struts to allow for larger door sizes and makes it easy to replace sections in the field.

Fabric High-Speed Doors for Exterior Applications

The Model 993 and 994 are both strutted high-speed fabric doors; however, they feature a heavier curtain material for exterior applications.  Both models have been independently tested for pressure resistance and the 993 features a pressure resistance of up to 4.0 psf or 76 mph while the Model 994 features a pressure resistance of up to 22psf or 158 mph.  The Model 994 also features a patent-pending bottom wind lock and articulating roller wind struts which reduce operational noise while allowing the door to withstand pressure.

✔  Sectional Overhead Doors

If sectional overhead doors are appropriate for your project there is a vast product selection. The most popular choices include our aluminum and glass 521 series and our polyurethane insulated steel-foam-steel laminated sectional doors. The aluminum series is available with various window options and can be mill finish, painted, anodized or powder coated in a color perfect for your project. The ThermacoreTM series by Overhead Door Corporation offers R-values up to 26 and U-values as impressive as 0.038 for the most demanding environments. These products are available with multiple tracking configurations to fit your specific needs. Generally, sectional door products will provide more thermal efficiency than rolling or coiling products.

✔  Loading Dock Equipment

We can also assist with your loading dock equipment requirements. Whether your plan calls for mechanical, air-powered, hydraulic or vertical storing or edge-of-dock loading dock levelers, we have the right product for you. Another important consideration for the loading dock area might be the use of a vehicle restraint system. The vehicle restraint system prevents a truck from pulling away from a loading dock while loading or unloading is in progress. These products can be automated and integrated with traffic control light systems to increase safety. A full line of dock seals with both fixed, curtain and adjustable headers and a full line of dock shelters are also offered. These products can be specified for a variety of site conditions such as steel or masonry wall structure, sloped or level approach, above and below dock level operation, and many other site-specific conditions.
