Healthcare Door Solutions Part 3

Performance doors for the medical & healthcare sector

Welcome to the last of our three-part series of emails looking at doors for the healthcare sector. This week we will focus on durability and specialist applications.

When specifying doors for a hospital, medical centre or any other medical or healthcare facility, the chances are that at least some of those doors will need to meet some very specific and sometimes specialist performance criteria.

The good news is that at Performance Doors, we have the expertise and the product range to supply any and every door that is required for your healthcare project – all made by us in the UK to the highest standards.



In a busy hospital, for example, the doors in a busy corridor may need to withstand frequent knocks from trolleys and beds being wheeled through. This can take its toll on a standard door, so we would recommend specifying a door with a more robust structure like our Performance Duraplus doors that have a solid timber sub-frame, a high quality performance core and a high-density sub-face material.

You can also choose to specify additional protective strips to the door and frame, and indeed to the adjacent walls to help protect against these knocks and scrapes. They are available in a range of different colours and finishes to perfectly complement the interior design.

Specialist applications

As a specialist manufacturer of performance doors, we can also supply certified x-ray doors that are lead-lined to prevent the transmission of harmful x-rays through the door. These too can be specified for additional durability, acoustic performance, fire performance and smoke control, and there is a huge range of colours and finishes to choose from.

Hospital and Healthcare Doorsets

All of these solutions can be combined with many different specifications of performance door. Call the experienced team at Performance Doors for expert advice.
