Axis Doors for Healthcare Environments

Axis Automatic Entrance Systems News and PR from Axis Automatic Entrance Systems - Published 22 February 2018 Axis Automatic Entrance Systems offers a wide range of automatic and manual doors suitable for clean room or healthcare environments including products specifically developed for Intensive Care Units (ICU) and Critical Care Units (CCU).
The range includes the multi-award winning Flo-Motion® Manual Sliding Doors that were originally developed for the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital but are now installed in a number of hospitals throughout the UK and Ireland. Available in single sliding, bi-parting and telescopic door formats, Flo-Motion® doors can transform the way single rooms work to deliver healthcare with a choice of privacy or social interaction when required without the loss of clinical observation. The average opening force of the 200+ Flo-Motion® doors installed at Alder Hey was just 10N - less than 50% of the original specified force requirement.

Flo-Motion® doors have won four prestigious awards. Firstly, Laing O'Rourke's 2015 Construction North Award for Innovation, followed by the IHEEM 2015 Product Innovation Award. This was followed by the Building Better Healthcare Best Internal Building Product 2015 and in 2016, the European Healthcare Design Award for Innovation for Quality Improvement.

Axis also supplies and installs Manusa Automatic Hermetic Doors to fulfill every requirement. Sliding, swing, lead-lined or glass, all our hermetic doors are functional, aesthetic and hygienic. In order to guarantee correct hermetic sealing, the sliding leaf drops down 15mm towards the floor and fits 10mm towards the frame so as seal the perimeter of the gap. On the swing doors the leaf is sealed at the side and top to guarantee a perfect hermetic seal. It is also equipped with a mechanism that slides along the floor to ensure the door is sealed at the bottom too.
