Ahmarra: Doorsets Designed for the Healthcare Environment

  • 23 Aug 2021

Ahmarra are one of the UK’s leading fire door specialists with over 25 years’ experience. The company’s core services include the design, manufacture, installation and project management of internal doorsets and glazed screens.

Its severe-duty BM-TRADA Q-Mark certified doorsets have been developed specifically for hospital, health centre and medical research facility environments.

Healthcare fire doors often have a unique set of design requirements. These include certified fire protection, acoustic performance, enhanced durability, infection control, compatible ironmongery, accessibility, and wayfinding features.

Certified Fire Protection

Fire doors play an important role in preventing the spread of fire in an environment where many patients may be incapacitated, maximising the time staff have, to help with safe evacuation. Ahmarra’s fire doors are available with FD30 or FD60 primary fire test evidence, plus smoke resistance.

Acoustic Performance

Doors help prevent noise passing from one ward to another, improving the patient experience and creating an environment that supports a restful recovery. In a busy healthcare environment that operates 24/7, sound resistance is achieved through a combination of specifically engineered door cores and optimal seal arrangements.

Enhanced Durability

Ahmarra’s robust healthcare range is available with a selection of impact resistant 2mm thick PVC wrapped doors and frames with replaceable glazing beads, hanging and leading-edge protection, or with Polyrey high pressure laminate door facings.

Doors are designed for longevity in an environment that has heavy footfall, whilst allowing cost-effective replacement of elements that may get damaged over the years.

Infection Control

Whether doors are faced with Polyrey’s Sanitized® laminate or PVC wrapping, they incorporate antibacterial properties throughout their construction (not just a surface coating), therefore eliminating 99.9% of bacteria.

Compatible Ironmongery

Doorsets come with factory-fitted, fully compatible hardware as standard, including protection plates, locks, flush bolts and signage.

Accessibility

Providing equal access for disabled people is a necessity in public building design. For those who are visually impaired, this requires adequate visual contrast between building surfaces and their surrounding areas, which can be measured using the light reflectance value (LVR) scale.

To achieve this, coloured laminates and PVC facings can be used to differentiate between doors, frames, ironmongery and their surroundings.

Wayfinding

Larger hospitals can be notoriously difficult to navigate, therefore, colour coded doors can feature, as part of a wayfinding system.

Ahmarra have you covered on all of these aspects and more. For market-leading advice on performance doorsets, contact the company’s Business Development & Specification Manager, Martyn Fennell.
