    The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest hospital trusts in the north of England serving more than 465,000 people in Liverpool.


    The hospital required new operating theatre doors as part of a major refurbishment. The upgrade was an essential part of the trusts strategy to drive infection control and operating efficiency across its theatres. Dortek were asked to replace existing timber doors with a more hygienic, functional alterative to meet these goals.


    Dortek supplied and installed specialist hermetic sliding doors with automations for easy access. These doors have a unique hermetically sealing gasket system which gives them a 99% air tight seal. After installing the doors the hospital were able to reduce the volume of clean air fed into the theatres by over 20%. The air which has to be regulated and controlled for particulates, humidity, and temperature, is a considerable expense per cubic metre, so the long term cost saved from this was significant.
