Axis Doors for Healthcare Environments

Axis Automatic Entrance Systems offers a wide range of automatic and manual doors suitable for clean room or healthcare environments including products specifically developed for Intensive Care Units (ICU) and Critical Care Units (CCU).

The range includes the multi-award winning Flo-Motion® Manual Sliding Doors that were originally developed for the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital but are now installed in a number of hospitals throughout the UK and Ireland. Available in single sliding, bi-parting and telescopic door formats, Flo-Motion® doors can transform the way single rooms work to deliver healthcare with a choice of privacy or social interaction when required without the loss of clinical observation. The average opening force of the 200+ Flo-Motion® doors installed at Alder Hey was just 10N - less than 50% of the original specified force requirement.

Flo-Motion® doors have won four prestigious awards. Firstly, Laing O'Rourke's 2015 Construction North Award for Innovation, followed by the IHEEM 2015 Product Innovation Award. This was followed by the Building Better Healthcare Best Internal Building Product 2015 and in 2016, the European Healthcare Design Award for Innovation for Quality Improvement.

Axis also supplies and installs Manusa Automatic Hermetic Doors to fulfill every requirement. Sliding, swing, lead-lined or glass, all our hermetic doors are functional, aesthetic and hygienic. In order to guarantee correct hermetic sealing, the sliding leaf drops down 15mm towards the floor and fits 10mm towards the frame so as seal the perimeter of the gap. On the swing doors the leaf is sealed at the side and top to guarantee a perfect hermetic seal. It is also equipped with a mechanism that slides along the floor to ensure the door is sealed at the bottom too.

Axis is the sole UK distributor of Stanley Automatic Doors and this includes their full range of ICU/CCU doors plus their Clean Room automatic doors providing contamination-controlled access for today's highly sensitive technological environments. These are industry rated for biotechnology, pharmaceutical, aerospace, medical and dental devices, hospitals, industrial applications and more.

The Stanley Dura-Care range of manual sliding and swing doors for hospitals are designed to meet the demand for greater clear opening width while providing advanced features required in ICU/CCU environments. This includes an emergency breakaway capability, a utility breakaway capability and a trackless threshold design. Optional features include smoke and draft protection, positive/negative pressure environments, anti-microbial protection to prevent the spread of infections and electronic privacy glass that instantly turns from clear to opaque with the flick of a switch for patient privacy

Axis Doors Improve Access at Stratford Garden Centre

Stratford Garden Centre have improved customer flow and access by building a new exit area to accommodate the tills away from the hustle and bustle of the entrance. This meant they needed new doors and they naturally turned to their regular supplier, Axis Automatic Entrance Systems, who had previously installed Stanley Automatic Doors throughout the centre.

The new Stanley Dura-Glide SLD features bi-parting automatic doors sliding over glazed screens with infra red sensors linked to the Stanley MC521 Pro Controller and Eco Pro dynamic user interface. This new generation controller is completely re-engineered for the Stanley Duraglide SLD & SLH models and includes a
“soft-start” “soft-stop” motor driving circuit for smooth normal opening and recycling.

The door engineer can set door functions very easily, including door and motor type, handing, speed, hold-open delay, troubleshooting and much more via a Windows mobile handset although the control panel can also be set manually. The system will collect and store performance data including an operating cycle counter and event and error reporting while displaying the current operating state.

The display unit can be discretely mounted on either the jamb or a nearby wall and provides an electronic alternative to manual switches. All basic door functions of rotary and toggle switches, up to six positions, can be controlled as well as setting programmed schedules for enhanced operating mode changes based on the day of the week, time of day, etc.

The Dura-Glide 2000 Series is the industry standard for smooth, reliable operation in every application from high-traffic retail locations, like garden centres, to upscale professional and institutional settings. Door packages are manufactured to suit individual requirements and installed by ADSA Authorised Technicians (Automatic Door Suppliers' Association) as per the guidelines of EN16005 (formerly BS7036:1996 - Code of Practice for safety at powered doors for pedestrian use).

Back in 2004, Paul Southern and his niece and her husband, Helen and Gwyn Lloyd bought an old bedding plant nursery 3 miles south of Stratford upon Avon and re-opened as Stratford Garden Centre in 2006. Over the succeeding years this family business has grown to its current 7 acres and 24,000 square feet of indoor retail space with plans to increase that by a further 9,000 square feet.

They are very pleased with the new layout keeping both the old entrance and the new exit free flowing and less cluttered and encouraging customers to move further around the store and experience more of what they have to offer. Helen Lloyd said “ Once again Axis have given us an excellent product backed up by their knowledgeable and flexible service to help us create the solution we had planned.”

Axis Stanley Dura-Care doors for Spire Hartswood Hospital

Five Stanley Dura-Care 7500 telescopic sliding doors have been installed by Axis Automatic Entrance Systems at the Spire Hartswood Private Hospital in Brentwood Essex. Halliday Meecham Architects were looking to replace timber doors on the 5 patient “pods” used in the recovery area for day-case procedures. The previous doors restricted access for moving beds in and out of the rooms and also created a very closed and detached environment. While researching alternatives they found the Stanley Dura-Care door range featured on the Axis Automatic Entrance Systems website. The fully glazed doors create a much brighter and attractive ambience in the recovery rooms and the breakout facility makes moving beds around much easier. Four of the doors consist of one fixed leaf 765mm wide and two sliding leaves that combine to give a clear opening of 1450mm in a full width of 2215mm. The fifth door is slightly smaller but of similar proportions.

The Stanley Dura-Care 7500 is a manual sliding door system designed to meet the specific needs of hospital intensive and cardiac care units (ICU/CCU). This telescopic door is available in 3 or 6 panel packages and those installed at Spire Hartswood Hospital feature emergency breakout on the leading sliding leaf, positive latching and are a trackless design to provide completely unimpeded access. The 6.4mm laminated glass panels have made the whole area much brighter and lighter and are proving very popular with patients and staff alike compared to the previous unglazed doors. Frosted film has been applied to parts of the glass to give privacy without reducing the overall brightness.

Project Manager Kevin Hill of M&O Building Contractors was also impressed with the service provided by Axis, particularly the way problems were overcome and the final completion date strictly adhered to.
Spire Hartswood Private Hospital, Brentwood, Essex is part of the Spire Healthcare hospital network that offers a comprehensive range of private hospital services.
The Stanley Dura-Care range of ICU/CCU doors offers a selection of sliding, swing, folding and bi-folding door configurations. They have all been designed to maximise clear space openings and have many features ideal for healthcare environments including smoke and draft controls, positive/negative pressure environments and anti-microbial protection. Electronic privacy glass can be fitted that instantly turns from clear to opaque with the flick of a switch for patient privacy.

Stanley are the world’s leading automatic door manufacturer and Axis Automatic Entrance Systems are the sole UK distributor of Stanley automatic door equipment.

World’s First Automatic Door

It was 85 years ago this year, in 1931, that the world’s first automatic door was patented, sold and installed. The door was invented by Horace H. Raymond and Sheldon S. Roby for the Stanley Works and was installed at Wilcox's Pier Restaurant in West Haven, Connecticut in 1931. The entire system (operator, beams and doors) plus installation was sold for $100. Due to the product's success, an automatic door division spun off of the Stanley Works and is now called Stanley Access Technologies.

The door was originally designed for use between the kitchen and the dining room at Wilcox’s Pier Restaurant and consisted of a pneumatically powered swing door operator controlled by a light beam “magic eye”

The patent, filed by the inventors in November 1931, claimed:
Our invention relates to apparatus for operating doors, and has special reference to apparatus of this character that is controllable by light sensitive means.

One of the objects of our invention is to provide an apparatus for operating doors which is so constructed that as a person approaches the door, the door is opened automatically and remains open until the person has passed therethrough, whereupon the door automatically closes.

Another of the objects of our invention is to provide an apparatus of the character indicated which is simple in construction, and reliable and efficient in operation.

The opening of the doors is controlled by a photo-electric cell mounted in posts arranged in front of the doors so that a person approaching passes between them. Then the variation in the current from the photo-electric cell acts through an amplifier and relay system to close the circuit connection with an electro-magnet. When the doors have opened a predetermined distance to allow the person to pass through the door-way, the operating mechanism acts automatically to close the doors and to maintain them closed until another person crosses the lightbeam. The operating mechanism is mounted on the back or kitchen side of the door casing so that it is out of sight from the dining-room.

It is apparent from day one of the history of automatic doors that key features were simplicity, reliability and efficiency as well as the overall aesthetics. These features have been guiding principles of the last 85 years and are as important in Stanley products today as in 1931.

Axis Automatic Entrance Systems embrace the same values and are the sole UK distributors of Stanley automatic door equipment.
