  Horton Offers Two New Door Systems for Airborne Infection Isolation Rooms

Many hospitals today are renovating and adding patient care areas designed specifically for isolation control as part of a focused initiative to reduce the possibility of patients spreading contagious airborne infectious diseases. Horton is meeting this challenge by offering two new door systems that are tested to strict air infiltration standards and designed for airborne infection isolation rooms (AIIR).

The new 2000-IDS is an automatic trackless system designed with "Knowing Act" activation (touchless sensor or push plate), recessed pull handle, presence sensor, perimeter seals and self-closing operation. This model is available in unit widths ranging from 7 to 9 feet with large clear openings up to 48 inches. This system has excellent air infiltration test results easily meeting negative, positive or combination pressure AIIR requirements.

Horton also offers a mechanical Self-Closing IDS that opens manually and self-closes. It features full perimeter seals and can be applied in any of the same medical installations as that of the 2000-IDS, but without the need for electrical power. In addition, the Self-Closing IDS has a positive latching handle and a hold-open feature.

Both systems may be used as a patient room when infection control is not required. Hospital applications identified for the new Horton systems include newborn and pediatric care, intensive and critical care, bariatric care, biohazard rooms, quarantine rooms and other patient care areas. A new video featuring Horton isolation room doors and other healthcare solutions can be accessed at YouTube (search Horton Automatics Medical Doors).
