Lloyd Worrall help balance the fire, privacy, access and security needs of a bespoke healthcare space

Lloyd Worrall worked alongside Western Building Systems to deliver 200 doorsets, ironmongery and door automation solutions to the new ward facilities.


The Jubilee Building is a 3-storey bespoke modular ward building at Hillingdon Hospital, Greater London. The new healthcare building will provide specialist paediatrics, dementia and rehabilitation ward facilities. This temporary building will support the longer-term development of the hospital site.

Various strategies were designed for the building such as locking, fire rating, privacy and security. Lloyd Worrall considered all of these before advising which doorset solutions were best for each application. On this occasion we selected laminate faced doorsets which provide robust protection in corridor and ward situations and are easy to clean, alongside pivette doorsets to minimise door swing on outward opening WC doors. To ensure fire resistance standards were met, Lloyd Worrall supplied up to FD60 fire rated doorsets throughout the development.  

Balancing observational needs with privacy was also an important consideration. Vistamatic vision panels were supplied to the consulting and treatment room doors. The glazing panels contain a fully adjustable blind, encapsulated into the glass that turn an open-to-view area not a private area and vice versa.

Lloyd Worrall supplied a fully integrated stainless steel ironmongery package, including delayed action door closers, electromagnetic floor springs, lever and pull handles, locks, signage and ancillaries. With over 75 years of experience in specifying ironmongery to a diverse range of healthcare spaces, Lloyd Worrall ensured high quality products were supplied with technical advice and support throughout.

Lloyd Worrall also has a wealth of experience supplying, installing and commissioning door automation systems. Our door automation team provided comprehensive technical guidance, supplying automatic door operators to the main entrance, ward and lift lobby access and the rehabilitation garden doors. Linked to the video entry system, the operators provide 24-hour access and security as well as added safety during out of hours. The door automation system was installed and commissioned by our team of Approved ADSA installation engineers to BS EN 16005.
