Geze offers smart solutions for GCC healthcare sector

Geze, a global leading player in building technologies, is introducing innovative doors and window solutions for smart building management systems used in healthcare infrastructure across the Middle East region.

The healthcare sector within the GCC is expected to register strong growth in the coming years. Infrastructure and healthcare facilities is therefore a key component when it comes to the development of the Gulf healthcare sector, said a statement from Geze.

A fast growing population, increase in medical tourism and government led initiatives to provide mandatory insurance and healthcare services through state-of-the-art medical facilities are the key factors driving the growth within the healthcare sector, it stated.

Geze said it provides universal solutions for every specific door, window and security system requirements.

"Geze offers particular and in-depth specifications when it comes to special requirements on the construction projects within the GCC's healthcare sector," remarked Charles Constantin, the managing director of Geze Middle East.

"This includes the construction of new medical and research centers and hospital facilities and the expansion of existing hospital facilities to meet the rising demand of mega healthcare construction projects in the region," he added.

According to him, the hospital entrance areas are heavily used by visitors and often patients using walking aid.

"Geze provides solutions for this area that are durable and extremely safe. Sliding doors equipped with Geze's ECdrive are uncompromisingly reliable. The friction that occurs during opening and closing is minimized by self-cleaning roller carriages. This allows the doors to move quietly and reduces the cost of maintenance," he explained.

Geze's Slimdrive drive is available for facades and areas in which design is a main priority, said Constantin.

The extremely quiet drives for swing doors and sliding doors are used in patient areas - such as the electromechanical EMD drive. This swing door drive, which is unique due to its extremely low overall height of just 7 cm, is versatile and can therefore be flexibly used for any door, stated the top official.

The swing doors, he noted, can be actuated manually or by using buttons or radar.

According to him, hospitals, old age homes and clinics have been designed with special consideration for the patients and visitors.

"The challenge to the building management system is to adapt to the respective room concept. The Geze design can be used in the entire building beyond the range of door closers," explained Constantin.

Some of the other functionalities of Geze's door automation and design can be installed for the use of emergency exits, secure closing of room doors, partitions, extracting smoke and heat as well as window ventilation functions, he stated.

Over the past year, Geze was appointed to fit out Mafraq Hospital Abu Dhabi, Emirates Hospital Dubai, Citywalk Clinic Dubai, Al Jaber Hospital Kuwait, Al Sabah Hospital Kuwait, IMC Hospital KSA amoung several others in the GCC.-TradeArabia News Service
