St George's Hospital, Stafford
The St Georges Hospital is part of the South Staffordshire & Shropshire NHS Foundation Trust and provides a range of services for the treatment of mental health conditions including two forensic units, Ashley and Radford.
The trust brought Kingsway Group in to provide a solution to replace the existing out dated solutions for doorsets and vision panels.
Our proposal was geared around providing a safer means of operating the doors. We introduced our SWING doorset solution to replace existing pivot set doors. This allowed the doors to be opened outwards in any anti-barricade situations due to a full length continuous aluminium hinge, with the addition of the SWING Thru strike plate it allowed the doors to be opened even when the bolt is thrown, making the process easier and quicker. This provided a stronger, more secure and reliable system over against what was already in place.
