DMF recently completed a project with Watpac Constructions for the Roma Hospital Redevelopment, supplying fully x-ray compliant GRP swing doors. The use of clinical hygiene designed doors is becoming increasingly necessary, as hospitals standards increase. DMF partners with Dortek Ltd to provide these solutions throughout Australia, and with the advantages that our seamless GRP doors can offer, our lead lined solutions have become increasingly popular in hygienic applications requiring radiation shielding. These are unlike more traditional solutions where the lead lining material is surface mounted and then covered, leaving voids or seams where dirt can accumulate. Dortek lead lined doors are manufactured in such a way that the lead sheet is completely concealed in the waterproof GRP door shell, ensuring that our lead lined GRP doors still offer all the hygienic benefits which are critical for clean environments.
Hygienic GRP doors are made of plastic reinforced with very fine fibre of glass, commonly referred to as glass reinforced polyester (GRP). The doors have a smooth, non porous and fluid/chemical resistant surface which makes them very easy to keep clean. They have no lips, joins or edges (even around vision panels) and the door finish and door core are timber-free and inorganic. This makes them extremely versatile and ideally suited to harsh or hygiene-critical environments found in healthcare and cleanroom facilities.
DMF Dortek can offer lead thicknesses of up to 25mm for specialist high energy therapy applications and door sizes up to w 2850mm x h 2450mm. Our lead lined door solutions are extremely versatile and can be manufactured to offer a wide variety of performance characteristics to suit their application. This includes requirements for lead lining and lead lined privacy vision panels, fire ratings, hermetic sealing, smoke, acoustics and hands-free automations.
In addition for Roma Hospital, special full blockout window “blinds” were built into the double glazed Xray compliant glass. These are manually operated by an external dial that completely shits off any light passing through.
All GRP x-ray doors are manufactured to have an equal appearance to doors without lead protection. Our x-ray doors are available as hinged or sliding, with or without flush mounted windows.
