Doors for hospitals: types, characteristics and prices

Hospital doors: types

Hospital doors prove to be an essential tool within healthcare facilities.

In this article we examine these fixtures in all their variants, from the traditional simple seal door to leaded alternatives, up to hermetically sealed doors.
Simple seal doors

The plain seal door is ideal for many hospital environments that do not require x-ray exposure. It is therefore an alternative to consider for areas that do not need to be protected by lead or concrete barriers.

The typical application is that of barrier to separate the various departments, or rooms intended for personnel such as changing rooms and warehouses. In any case, it is not a "normal" door. It resists bumps and scratches better and cleaning operations are simplified, in order to increase the level of hygiene.

Doors for healthcare facilities are also marketed with different types of opening. They range from the classic hinged door to the swinging versions, also passing through the sliding alternatives inside the wall or flush with the wall. In addition, you can choose versions with an automatic scrolling system.

The leaded doors RX

The RX leaded doors offered by Porte Italiane are configured as ideal solutions for all those environments that need constant and high-level protection. Environments such as operating theatres, or radiology offices, or in general rooms where there are X-ray equipment which emits large quantities of radiation.

From a technical point of view, RX doors are formed from a 99.9% pure lead foil. Although these are highly technical and sophisticated doors, there is no shortage of stylistic alternatives. In particular, it is possible to choose between:

    Leaded internal doors: this is the classic variant, with hinged doors, which can be operated both by pushing and with an automatic motor;
    Leaded sliding doors: also in this case, both manual and brushless motor-operated models are available.

It is important to underline that both alternatives presented can be made in the hermetically sealed variant, obtained thanks to special gaskets and the movement of the door.
Hermetically sealed doors

The last available option regarding hospital doors is airtight fixtures. In purely practical terms, hermetic doors are used in operating rooms to prevent them from becoming infected or coming into contact with harmful external agents. Therefore, these are fixtures that prove to be essential to prevent bacteria from entering where they shouldn't.

Hermetic doors can be substantially of two types:

    Swing: the fixtures of this category have a classic functioning, which can be activated manually or through a motorized system;
    Sliding: the hermetic sliding doors can be activated by push, or equipped with an automated brushless motor.

The hermetic seal is guaranteed by the particular functioning of the door, as well as by the gaskets used to guarantee the right protection.

The price of hospital doors

Hospital doors obviously represent "special" models in our catalogue. Their advanced technical characteristics mean that the basic price is generally higher than that of traditional windows.

Despite this, the final cost can still change depending on some specific factors. We refer, for example, to:

    Panel measurements;
    Type of operation.

Therefore, it is possible to say that the cost of leaded or hermetically sealed doors adapts to the needs of those who will then have to use them. A fundamental feature for such delicate environments as hospitals and doctors' surgeries.
