The Hillingdon Hospital
Hillingdon Hospital is an acute and specialist services provider in North West London, close to Heathrow Airport. Providing the majority of services from the Trust, Hillingdon Hospital delivers high quality healthcare to the residents of the London Borough of Hillingdon, and increasingly to those living in the surrounding areas of Ealing, Harrow, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, giving it a total catchment population of over 350,000 people.
The newly designed and completely refurbished Children’s Accident and Emergency Department has opened at Hillingdon Hospital with Trovex Hygienic wash stations and doorsets. The new facility has been designed to a high specification providing a better environment and facilities for children and their families, including the new Trovex Hygipods and Hygidoors.
What did Trovex provide?
Trovex was contracted to provide the Hygipod system and the Hygidoor products on this project.
What challenges did we come up against?
This pediatric ward project provided some interesting challenges including:
- double action doors with an anti-finger trap hinge system. Trovex incorporated specialist products into the door to eliminate the potential for finger trapping points.
- certain rooms required a positive/negative pressure difference to the adjacent rooms, which meant incorporating specialist seals to the doors, including drop down seals at the base of the door leaf.
- acoustic ratings to certain rooms up to 37dB;
- bespoke vision panel sizes which incorporated the Trovex Hygiglaze flush glazed vison panel for maximum hygiene.
What is the result for the client?
Trovex managed to fulfil the client’s requirements with the Hygidoors so that they were performing as required.
