Plasform performance doorsets - Developed to meet hygiene, safety and operational requirements
The Plasform® Range has been developed to meet the hygiene, safety and operational requirements of various applications including education, commercial, airports, recreation, health, pharmaceuticals and the 'high tech' industries.
The use of radiused vertical edges to door leaves and all frame edges, and the postforming of facings around them, is an integral part of the Plasform® concept. This gives a distinctive appearance as well as easy to clean, damage resistant and ergonomically friendly surfaces. A wide choice of facings are available including decorative laminates, impact resistant PVC (Hygieniform) and a back-printed clear facing.
Door leaves and frames are designed to suit specific performance requirements. Doors are fully encapsulated, non-shedding and maintenance free with 6mm radii postformed edges for PVC and 12mm radii for laminate as shown. Frames are also wrapped in PVC or can be supplied with a paint or polish finish. Steel frames are also available. The range of vision panel options is a major feature, using various beaded and flush glazing systems.
All Plasform® products are supplied as fully finished doorsets with door leaf, frame and essential ironmongery forming a single, integrated, factory made assembly. Not only does this meet current industry demands for prefabrication but also ensures that designed, certified performance - particularly fire resistance - is actually achieved on-site.
The Plasform® Range is organised to suit particular applications and needs. There are four distinct product groups:
Plasform® Original - offers the widest choice of options with traditional beaded glazing systems for applications such as hospitals, leisure, education, breweries and food preparation areas.
Plasform® Unique - offers the widest choice of flush glazing options for applications such as kitchens, laboratories, operating theatres, cleanrooms and pharmacies.
