Operating theatres require extended duty products where severe duty door set are not enough. Using or solid laminated timber core (Principal Core) we provided the confidence that doors can stand up to this punishing environment. Doors and frames postformed adds further protection to faces of doors and frames so trolleys don't leave their marks. Vision panels were "flushform" which leaves a smooth face to doors providing easy clean and no surfaces for germs to harbour. Doors away from crash areas where flush finish laminate faced doors with contrasting painted frames. Glazing panels had flush bead finish with glass sandblasted with a spyhole feature to provide added privacy and clean lines. All fire doors had disc identification recessed into the faces of the doors complementing the flush face finishes.
