The KK Women’s and children’s hospital (KKH) is Singapore’s 5th largest hospital with 803 beds and a specialist IVF centre. The IVF centre offers a comprehensive range of diagnostic and treatment procedures for infertility-related services.
Dortek doors were specified as part of a retrofit exercise at the facility. Our excellent track record with KK Hospital earned us this project in which we previously supplied hermetic sealing doors to operating theatres in 1996 and 2008.
The client specified hermetic sealing sliding doors and hygienic GRP hinged doors with automations for easy access. Our hermetic doors have a unique hermetically sealing gasket system which gives them a 99% air tight seal. Some doors required Stainless Steel finishes as VOC is prohibited in Embryo Transfer (ET) rooms which are under positive pressure conditions. Interlocks were also supplied with our doors to control the air pressure and prevent contamination.
Dortek installed touchless door sensors to ensure safe, convenient access. Safe operation is ensured by the use of an intelligent automation, which reacts to even the smallest obstruction and photo sensors that stop the door closing onto passing traffic. This creates a high level of performance and a safe and reliable door system.
