Door & Frame Systems
Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children
Beyond the walls of local children’s artwork showcased using Acrovyn by Design Wall Protection, visitors and staff pass through many of the over 600 doors that connect the hospital’s rooms and corridors. FKP Architects selected CS Acrovyn® Doors in a clean Classic Maple simulated wood finish to maintain the friendly, inviting new look of the hospital. The team knew Acrovyn Doors’ unique aesthetic features and wide array of finish options would complement the overall design while maintaining necessary resilience.
“All products were chosen to equally meet aesthetic, durability and functionality requirements. This is often the most challenging aspect of product selection,” said Kristin Ledet, IIDA, Senior Vice President and Director of Interiors at FKP Architects, Inc. “We cannot sacrifice one design feature for another in order to meet all elements of patient care, staff satisfaction, and the patient and family experience. The Acrovyn Doors were selected for their durability, compatibility with integral blind solutions and overall palette coordination. Doors were strategically specified at all areas where impact resistance was the most critical element of the patient and staff journey.”See full case study
