Vistamatic have supplied more than 140 specialist vision panels to Glasgow-based Dorsuite, for the planned new Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh.
Vistamatic’s unique triple-glazed MAX-XL, both non-fire rated and FD30 fire rated, were made to measure. Specifically designed to offer a streamline appearance to any internal door, these full-length panels fit vertically into any door blank and were primarily used in the hospital’s internal patient rooms.
Ideal for projects in all sectors, the MAX-XL provides a contemporary streamline appearance whilst offering the right amount of observation in a medical environment.
Easy to fit and install, with no cutting or drilling required, these vision panels fit into any frame and can be manually operated to open or close the glazed observation panels.
As well as these full-length panels, a selection of smaller glazed secure vision panels were also created as part of the order. These offer a large viewing aspect whilst demonstrating the appearance of a venetian blind.
Dorsuite’s project manager commented: “We ordered 142 vision panels from Vistamatic, which we asked to have delivered to our Glasgow site. We fitted the panels into our internal doors and we transported them to the new hospital site in Edinburgh.
“Due to the size of the development, and to avoid localised congestion, all contractors were given a timed delivery slot so they could get their products moved in. We had to adhere to these strict timings but everything went to plan as Vistamatic agreed to ship their products directly to us and we then organised a timed delivery. The vision panels from Vistamatic were perfect for the job.”
Dorsuite was chosen to supply two major hospital projects in Scotland, in a combined deal worth around £6m. Together, well over 5,000 doorsets were delivered on budget, within agreed timescales and fitted by specialists.
