Hinge systems for healthcare facilities

 

Modern hospitals today house so much more than just beds and medical equipment. The times of dreary corridors and bleak rooms with numerous beds have gone. It has now been scientifically proven that patients' surroundings contribute significantly to their recovery, and that a positive spatial and interpersonal atmosphere is essential.

 

 

Modern hospitals today house so much more than just beds and medical equipment. The times of dreary corridors and bleak rooms with numerous beds have gone. It has now been scientifically proven that patients' surroundings contribute significantly to their recovery, and that a positive spatial and interpersonal atmosphere is essential.

Not only do many healthcare buildings now resemble modern hotel constructions complete with a lobby, lounge and spa, but they also incorporate natural materials such as solid timber, natural rubber and natural stone materials. The overall hospital system has never been so complex, with the immense range of specialisations and high-tech medical equipment. From an architectural standpoint, a great deal of importance is placed on creating a harmonious atmosphere, clearly arranged building layouts and wards which are conducive to forming identities, while the technology soars to NASA-level. The professionalism of doctors and care staff, their expertise and ability to respond quickly to situations and communicate effectively – these are all part of modern medical practice.

VARIANT Care – The hinge system for healthcare facilities

The hinge system developed by SIMONSWERK specifically for healthcare facilities makes an ample clearance height from the planned frame dimensions. If the clearance is reduced for conventional hinge systems at least by the thickness of the door leaf, plus a few centimetres for the hinge which allows for opening and closing the door, then the door can be opened fully out of the frame passage at a 90° angle thanks to the VARIANT® Care hinge system.

This facilitates the unobstructed movement of beds, wheelchairs and equipment and optimises logistics within the hospital corridors. Hinges from the VARIANT® Care range are available for door leaf thicknesses of 40 to 70 mm and a load capacity of up to 100 kg.

Please note that close collaboration with SIMONSWERK will be necessary to achieve this. The door symmetries and geometries are decisive when choosing the right hinge system for ultimately ensuring trouble-free functionality. If you want to know more, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
