Typical metal frame in hospital

Metal frames prohibit proper water proofing to wet areas.

 Extensive water damage

Metal Door frames are installed at stud framing time and cannot be wet sealed behind or underneath, hospitals have no shower screen or shower hob, making the door frame the easy access point for water, causing wet area failure.    

ARMOURLINE frames were designed specifically to solve this problem at the request of Qld Health.

5 YEAR TRIAL DATA:
SIDE BY SIDE COMPARISON
What do you expect your facility to look like in its first 5 years?

The frame on the left in this picture is a very early Armourline frame in a Qld Government aged care facility; the one on the right is a metal frame for comparison.  

 

The metal frame has been painted FOUR TIMES in the five year trial period. The Armourline frame has been neglected completely.

No matter how carefully you design it or how meticulously you build a door frame, a third of 1mm of paint is all that protects it.

 

Continual damage from wheelchairs and trolleys is unavoidable and the damage never stops!

Add to that, the unsightly yellowing of the paint from hospital grade cleaners... And around we go again!

UNLESS WE CHANGE!!
