In this section we consider the performance and design aspects of the door and doorset in relation to legislation, British Standards and NHS requirements.

The current HTM 58 places great emphasis on the use of doorsets and, as the leading manufacturer of performance doorsets for the health sector, Leaderflush Shapland Laidlaw is perfectly equipped to offer the best possible advice on doorsets for all healthcare building projects. Where possible, we have provided doorset solutions that achieve required design and performance characteristics.
