The Mercy University Hospital embarked on a prestigious two-year project in 2021 to construct a 3 storey extension over an existing service yard utilising an innovative steel frame construction system. This project delivered 30 additional in-patient beds and 2 new state-of-the-art operating theatres with ancillary rooms. MF Services’ dedicated project team worked closely with the design team from Yelland Architects and Main Contractors, Clancy Construction, to deliver this complex project on schedule.
MF Services were contracted to design and supply a complete theatre access solution consisting of specialised manual and automatic hygienic doors with integrated electric locking. This electric locking system was integrated into the Theatre Control Panel allowing access to each theatre to be restricted during surgery.
GRP Swing Doors
MF Services supplied and installed both manual and automatic, Class 5 and 6 lead lined, swing doors for both theatres and ancillary rooms. As a completely encapsulated unit these GRP doors are free of timber and other organic materials that promote bacterial growth and provide a non-porous smooth surface that can easily be cleaned down. GRP swing doors offer a impact resistant, durable and hygienic solution to accessing critical areas in a hospital environment.
Lead Lined GRP Sliding Doors
Meeting the specific requirements of the operating theatre specification, MF Services provided laser protected vision panels in Class 6 lead lined GRP automatic sliding doors. These hermetically sealed automatic sliding doors effectively control the flow of the air which supports the ventilation strategy of the operating theatre.
Theatre Control Panel Integration
To ensure full safety control measures when the theatres are in use MF Services installed interlock systems to all critical doors. These are wired directly into the operating theatre control panel which lock down the doors before a procedure can commence and form a fully monitored safety system. The interlock system is only overridden by fire alarm activation or by emergency break glass units.
