Medium duty
Medium frequency of use primarily by those with some incentive to exercise care, although with some chance of accidents or misuse.

Heavy duty
High frequency of use by the public and others with little incentive to exercise care where accidents or misuse could occur.

Severe duty
Subject to frequent, violent usage

Anti-microbial.



The threat of infection exists in all environments, whether it be a hospital, care home, school, hotel or catering establishment. These and other sectors have a real need for protection from bacteria and cross contamination from common items such as walls, doors and floors.

Hygienilac is the first biocidally proactive wood lacquer available in the UK and kills most species of bacteria including C.diff, MRSA, salmonella and E.coli, and it it goes on killing them for the lifetime of the lacquer. Hygienilac is added to the wood lacquer and as such has a lifetime of up to ten years.

Radiation shielding.



Leaderflush Shapland Laidlaw has developed the Leadline range of doorsets providing various levels of X-ray protection while accommodating all our standard facing options to match other standard performance door sets.

Leadline AS doorsets incorporate lead sheeting in a range of thicknesses and this protection extends through the door frames, forming an effective barrier to radiation in all directions. Particular care is taken to ensure continuous protection and the lead sheeting is located closer to one door face so that it covers the lock-case.
