In the design of healthcare facilities, every little detail matters. This includes the performance and appeal of interior doors. When architects and designers are choosing door systems for their medical construction or renovation projects, they must keep in mind that everything from the accessibility of the building to the quality of patient care will be affected by their selection. When it comes to hospitals, in particular, design professionals turn to AD Systems for high quality door solutions.

The Many Benefits of Installing Glass, Barn, & Acoustic Hospital Doors
AD Systems offers a wide selection of hospital door options. They do not offer breakaway doors that are typical of CCU or ICU environments, but there are many other areas of the hospital that can use their high performance sliding doors that offer large clear openings, smoke ratings and hardware functionality such as locking and latching hardware, self-closers, soft closers and automation. With so many versatile materials, finishes, glazing, and hardware to choose from, there are several ways to configure a door system to uniquely suit certain project specifications.
- Glass Doors: Sliding glass door systems exhibit an elegance and beauty that will never go out of style. There are numerous decorative glass and glazing choices that can be added to doors for increased privacy and aesthetics. AD Systems’ typical design features aluminum stile and rail doors with a 4″ profile (and optional taller bottom rail) that allows for a large glass lite while protecting the perimeter of the glazing in such a high traffic environment. This allows designers to make use of glass materials open up spaces, create transparency, and allow more natural light to shine through a building while maintaining the durability and functionality demanded in healthcare settings.
- Barn Doors: Sliding barn doors are exceptional space savers. They can add up to 30 square feet of extra usable space wherever they’re installed. This means hospitals can fit more furniture in patient rooms and keep important equipment on hand without overcrowding a room. The top-hung design of barn doors not only supports a better use of space, but also eliminates floor tracks and presents much wider passageways. In turn, it’s much easier to maneuver through doorways with assistive medical devices, large equipment, and patient beds.
- Acoustic Doors: Acoustics are a major concern when installing hospital door systems. Fortunately, AD Systems addresses this in their door designs. They make it a priority to earn high Noise Isolation Class (NIC) ratings and have patent-pending acoustical seals and option automatic drop seals for increased sound isolation. This will help meet acoustical performance requirements for healthcare projects.
