Several door seals from Kilargo were specified for different areas of the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.
Designed by Billard Leece, Bates Smart and HKS (US) for the Department of Health, Victoria, the project was the largest hospital redevelopment ever undertaken by the State of Victoria, involving the construction of a new 165,000-square-metre hospital facility purpose-built over seven levels, including 75,000 square metres of car parking over three basement levels.
The door seal combinations for the children’s hospital were selectively specified for particular applications ranging from corridor smoke doors and theatre rooms to patient wards and office facilities.
Fire Door Meeting Stile (FDMS) seals were also utilised on pairs of fire doors catering for both single and double swing doors.
Kilargo products used included IS1212 Flexi-Wing seals, IS7010si perimeter seals, IS7080si perimeter seals, IS7095si perimeter seals, IS7071si meeting stile seals, IS7060si meeting stile seals, IS8010si automatic door bottom seals, IS8090si automatic door bottom seals, and IS9070 finger-guard safety seals.
