ARC

Brief

The facility runs with a typical cascading air pressure regime with air passing from production rooms into a barrier corridor. During a routine cleaning exercise a small amount of dust was observed on the extract grilles of the doors leading from the production areas to the barrier corridor. The existing doors were hollow core and there were concerns that the voids inside the doors may contain bacteria loaded dust, so ARC carried out an investigation. Microbiological testing of samples taken from within the hollow door voids determined that the dust was indeed carrying multiple forms of bacteria, which is a major risk to facility operations.

Solution

ARC specified Dortek hygienic GRP doors to remove the possibility of further bacterial growth. Dortek doors are extremely light weight and the seamless solid core construction ensures that bacterial growth cannot reoccur. The moulded GRP shell is incredibly robust ensuring that effective surface decontamination, using a variety of gaseous sterilants can be performed, without the risk of the door integrity being compromised. The project used a variety of Dortek sliding and hinged doors to maximise functionality, maintain optimum hygiene levels and improve layout & personnel flows.

Mercy Hospital

Brief

The main focus is private elective surgery with six theatres, a two-bed ICU facility, forty-one inpatient beds, twenty-four day surgery beds, six-day surgery chairs along with a fully equipped Cardiac Catheterisation Lab.

As there was tight space, hinged doors would take up too much swing room in the corridors so the sliding doors were an ideal solution for ease of entry for trolley bed access to the theatres. The doors also needed to have a fire rating to the New Zealand fire standards as they were being used in a fire-rated wall and Dortek were able to provide all the necessary certification for these door types. As these were operating theatres, the doors need to be of a high hygienic standard.

Solution
