Clinic Doors at AD Systems
Clinic doors definitely have their place at AD Systems. They may be used in a variety of facilities from a large hospital campus to a local neighborhood doctor’s office, but in call cases they have to meet important requirements.
Doors that lead into and out of patient exam, treatment and recovery areas must:
Personal patient information must be protected at all times, as guaranteed by HPAA guidelines. Patients will not be comfortable discussing important private medical conditions and history if they think their doctor’s office conversation can be overheard outside the exam room. People receiving treatment for specific diseases or conditions cannot risk asking vital questions if other patients or family members in the health center can hear revealing information. And those who are recovering from procedures will be stressed and unable to rest if voice and equipment noise from the hospital intrudes into their room. It is extremely important that doorways and the surrounding construction successfully impede sound transfer.
Now more than ever, square footage devoted to health centers is prohibitively expensive to build or to renovate. Space must be utilized to its full advantage so that owners and facility managers can receive the best return on their investment. Our clinic doors glide unobtrusively along exterior walls when they are open, instead of swinging into the room, so valuable floor space can be freed up for storage and equipment or rooms can be scaled back for economy of space. Either way, the square footage benefits from maximum usage.
AD Systems doors are available with several features that ensure access to users of all ages and abilities. We offer options for widths from the 32-inch minimum required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) up to 48-60 inches to accommodate personal aids and facility equipment. Because these doors are top-hung with no exposed bottom guides or floor tracks, they will not hinder people on crutches or in wheelchairs. Self-closing, automated and soft-closing options enable easy entering and exiting for all young, elderly or differently-abled patients.
You will be amazed at the vast array of options for materials, styles and hardware that are available to complement your interior design. The door panels themselves can be flush wood, plastic laminates or aluminum with glass inserts. There are a wide range of glazing options available: clear glass, frosted glass or glass with etched designs; they can even be double-glass panes with integral blinds for privacy. Other functional door inset choices include wipe-off marker boards, utilitarian cork panels or magnetic surfaces. Of course, our huge selection of locks, latches, handles, card readers and other hardware will coordinate with the style of your designed space.
At AD Systems, we are dedicated to producing customizable door systems that meet the needs of healthcare clinic spaces. With continued input from architects, interior designers and facility managers about healthcare facility demands and regulatory requirements as well as style and function trends, we continually improve and expand your options for the very best in clinic door solutions.
