Fire doors close in an emergency
Baier has made it its goal to provide its customers with comprehensive and, above all, solution-oriented advice. Especially in buildings where doors are constantly open, the need for a fire or smoke protection closure arises. In the event of a fire, it is not always possible to close mechanically locked doors by hand, either because there is no one in the immediate vicinity when the fire starts, or because the development of heat simply makes this impossible. Baier has therefore installed ten 2-leaf hold-open systems and 2 ceiling smoke detectors in the Erlenbad monastery. The ceiling smoke detector gives a permanent “OK signal” and the doors are kept open. In the event of a fire, this OK signal is interrupted and the doors close automatically. On the one hand, this ensures that the doors are kept open until the doors are closed manually or closed automatically in the event of a fire.
Barrier-free with automatic sliding door
Many nurses are supplied with meals every day, and the kitchen logistics have to fit. The access from the corridor to the scullery was no longer up to the increased requirements and changed work processes and was to be modernised. Fast opening and closing are elementary for a smooth workflow when heavy serving trolleys have to pass through the scullery. A filigree automatic door with linear sliding door drive was installed. With modern and reliable technology, the door opens and closes according to the current state of the art.
The result is impressive
The new door is located in the immediate vicinity of an “old” door. Visually, the automatic door, whose 2 leaves are fitted with matt glass, blends unobtrusively into the overall picture. In order to protect the door frames in the area of the scullery, Baier has covered the door frames with a checker plate. Aluminium chequer plates are used where water is used or where easy cleaning is required. Chequer plates are known as non-slip floor coverings, creative decorations or, as here, in the entrance area of the scullery of the monastery as impact protection.
