MID-ARGYLL COMMUNITY HOSPITAL AND INTEGRATED CARE CENTRE, NHS HIGHLANDS

When repurposing an existing building to expand Mental Health capacity in the area, NHS Highland wanted to create a safe environment that would implement the current best practice for Mental Health design.  This meant selecting doorsets which were safe and functional, yet non-institutional.  That’s why they selected our Symphony doorsets with our freeswing door closer

 

Creating a homely environment

Creating a homely environment

Installing our Symphony doorsets meant the trust could keep the doors ajar, helping to emulate the home environment and enable better observation

And with no closing force, they were less institutional and easy to use, making it suitable for users with reduced strength.

With underfloor heating throughout, floor spring closers were out of the question.  Luckily our concealed door closers are mounted in the frame head, so there was no floor excavation required – making it the ideal choice for the project.
