Germshielde Hygiene Doors

Germshielde Hygiene Doors
Germshielde Hygiene Doors

The Germshielde Hygiene Doors are specifically suited in areas where the demand for superior infection control is paramount, such as:

  • Hospitals
  • Healthcare and Nursing Homes
  • Laboratories and other Medical Manufacturing Facilities
  • Food Processing and Food Handling Lines
  • Childcare Centres and Schools

Bacterial infection exists in all environments but particularly in high concentration of people in commercial buildings. Bacteria live on common surfaces, including doors, door hardware and door seals and can be easily spread by human contact.

Germshielde™ is a superior Hygiene Door which comprises a combination of anti-microbial elements – resulting in a high quality, truly hygienic door plus we can offer 2 options:

1. Germshielde Hygiene Door – Metal Clad plus “Clinikill” Powder Coated option.

The antimicrobial agent used in the Powder Coat finish has been tested to the Japanese Industrial Standard JIS Z 2801:2000 and kills a wide range of bacteria, yeast and fungi.

Not only does the Powder Coated finish on the outer metal cladding contain antimicrobial properties, but also a range of antimicrobial silicone door seals is available for selection with the Hygiene doorset. The built-in antimicrobial gaskets provide outstanding performance in eliminating most bacteria, resulting in a unique product in most “clean room” environments.

All seals that are marked with the following icon are suitable for use with the Hygiene doorset.

The antimicrobial Powder Coat finish is available with the entire GFD range of metal clad doors with the exception of rebated double doors.

2. Germshielde Hygiene Door – Ply plus Acrovyn 4000® option.

The selection of Acrovyn® as a final finish on a Hygiene door will provide a wide range of benefits.

Acrovyn 4000® contains no halogens, monomers or other known persistent bioaccumulative toxins (PBTs) and is UL Class A/1 fire rated and labelled.

Acrovyn 4000® has been designed with human health in mind, which is supported by a multi-attribute third-party certification.
