AD Systems Addresses Acute Care Setting Needs with DualSwing

Acute Care

AD Systems, a leading manufacturer and solution provider of specialized interior sliding door systems and part of the Allegion family of brands, announces the launch of its newest product offering, DualSwing. Designed for use in acute care settings, the smoke-rated DualSwing door system features a large primary door and a smaller auxiliary leaf that can open to accommodate patient beds, CT scanners, MRI suites, Cath labs and other large equipment. This single-source swing door assembly provides the same sleek profiles and durable construction AD Systems is known for, making it ideal for projects that need flexible openings like healthcare facilities with inpatient rooms, med-surge patient rooms, hospital imaging rooms and more.

DualSwing’s wrapped aluminum perimeter stile and rail swinging doors are available in a range of configurations to provide optimum opening clearance within a modern and durable assembly. The primary door width can range from 34⁵⁄⁸ to 44⁵⁄⁸ inches, and the auxiliary door from 24 to 36 inches – allowing for a maximum clean opening of 76³⁄⁸ inches when both doors are open. The door assembly’s aluminum frame and large glazing options can match neighboring sliding door systems for a cohesive design aesthetic that marries form and function. It is also available with various glazing options and integral blinds to suit the privacy and daylighting needs of each specific application.

“In acute care and med-surg patient rooms, traditional swing doors need larger clearance, which takes up valuable space,” said Tysen Gannon, LEED AP, director of business development, AD Systems. “DualSwing’s uneven pair design is flexible – it provides a wider opening when needed for equipment and a standard size for everyday use. This high-performance door system meets the needs of acute care settings without sacrificing design aesthetics.”

The DualSwing door system features self-closing and self-latching mechanisms and Allegion’s ADA compliant hardware for ease of operation. Its gaskets also provide a seal that is smoke rated to UL 1784 specifications. Standard Ives top jamb flush bolts keep the primary door and auxiliary leaf in the closed position when not in use and are easily disengaged to allow the DualSwing system to open fully. It also ships completely ready to install for unmatched efficiency.
