What are the Factors to Consider When Choosing High-Speed Doors for Medical Facilities in Toronto, Canada?


When designing and constructing a medical facility, the top-notch standards of cleanliness and hygiene requirements are of high importance.

Construction planners, architects, and interior designers have certain standards in choosing the right medical office door for their projects. However, major concerns should be considered in designing any modern-day hospital which includes cost, material, speed, and efficiency.

Here are some considerations that are necessary when choosing and selecting high-speed doors for your medical facility or hospital establishment in Toronto, Canada:

  • Design Styles

Medical office door styles should not only be attractive, but also practical like a space-saver door. Space might be a factor when choosing a type of door.

  • Type of Material

There are several options to choose from when looking for a strongly-built door to match a medical facility’s design. Options of finishes range from glass, laminates, metal, and flush wood. For a classy-look, either wood or aluminum style, rail doors can leave a distinctive impression for a modern facility. Most hospitals choose glass, which offers openness, transparency, and energy efficient making use of natural light into space.

  • Design Framing

Framing is part of the design and its decor, best used for entryways where the frame has to be steady and strong that has to protect an opening every time a door opens or closes. Most people choose top-class aluminum frames. Several frame finishes are available to harmonize with the style of the space.

  • Follow ADA Compliance

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires medical establishments to follow accessibility requirements. Door specifications would include easy to open, clearance, and hardware that can be easy to use.

  • Sound Ratings

Privacy is a top priority for medical facilities. National standard regulators, such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) implements Privacy Rule for hospitals to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information.

Appropriate acoustic ratings and acoustic seals are some requirements for medical office doors. HIPAA uses sound transmission class (STC) rates to measure sound loss through a door, where it can range from 25 (normal speech can be heard through the door) to 60 which is soundproof.

  • Hardware Type

Hardware is one way to aesthetically design the door. Most modern facilities choose stainless steel handles and locks to create a modern-look while at the same time lessening maintenance cost.

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), medical facilities must comply with ADA requirements, to enhance accessibility for people with a disability.
