Natural ventilation

CMS carried out the manufacture and installation of Ronald McDonald house’s doors, windows and curtain walling systems

The Ronald McDonald House is located on the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital campus, one of the UK’s newest health care development projects.

The building features white brick and slate roof tiles, complemented by CMS Window Systems’ grey aluminium curtain walling and doors.

65 windows were manufactured by CMS using Metal Technology’s System 8 curtain walling system for the outer frames and its 4-20 thermally broken casement system for the opening vents.

The large opening vents feature parallel opening hinges to deliver a high level of natural ventilation within individual rooms to provide a healthier internal environment.

Safe and secure

CMS also used the Metal Technology 5-20D system to manufacture and install over seven entrance doors – providing safe, secure access complete with Dorma panic hardware.

The Ronald McDonald House at the Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow is now one of fourteen that the charity operates across the UK.
