Customer

Vlietland Hospital is a regional hospital located in Schiedam, Netherlands that provides a wide range of services within medical care. The hospital assures quality through a close collaboration between medical specialists, general practitioners, hospitals and other health care providers in the region. Vlietland Hospital is part of the St. Francis Vlietland Group.

Challenge

The challenge involved various swing door operators for the automation of both wooden single-action doors and fire-resistant doors. There was a need to create a safe, draught-free and comfortable entrance for both patients and visitors while ensuring good accessibility and the demarcation of the areas for staff and important visitors.

The deciding factors for Vlietland Hospital were ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems' local service organization and the quality of the product portfolio. ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems provided an automatic revolving door with the unique air curtain system in the main entrance of Vlietland Hospital for greater comfort and energy-savings.

ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems provided various systems including automatic revolving doors and sliding doors, an automatic revolving door with a diameter of 5.4 meters, and various swing door operators for the automation of both wooden single-action doors and fire-resistant doors.

We also installed 200 swing door operators and 150 sliding door operators that ensure convenient, comfortable and safe access between the departments. In addition to the benefits of comfort and energy-saving, the solution provides safe escape routes and easy access for both able-bodied and disabled people.
