20 Medical Construction & Design | September/October 2014 #1 ❏ 00 Acrovyn Doors achieve Cradle to Cradle certifi cations Construction Specialties, Inc.'s line of Acrovyn Doors has received Cradle to Cradle certifi cations for its standard door models at the Bronze level. The doors qualify to help in earning one point in the LEED V4 Materials and Resources Credit, Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Material Ingredients. #1 ❏ 02 High-performance door hinges ideal for new or retrofi t applications Zero International's high-perfor- mance, tamper-proof, integrated Unigear door hinges dissipate kick-back and impact shock while maintaining a smooth, effortless door swing. The Unigear spreads the stress along the full length of the door and frame. The hinges feature heavy-gauge, aluminum alloy with self-lubricating Delrin support blocks. The high-performance door hinges are perfect for new or retrofi t applications and feature fi re-rated options. #1 ❏ 04 Concealed vertical cable exit device achieves hurricane listing Allegion PLC's concealed vertical cable exit devices, which install in minutes, have been tested to have a design rating of +/- 75 pounds per square foot with a large missile impact, meet- ing the Florida Building Code requirements for hurricane wind protection. The fl exible cable latching system is inserted and secured into the door before the exit device is mounted. Once the latches are secured in the top and bottom of the door, the exit device is attached to the center slide of the cable system. By eliminating the trigger mechanism typically found at the top of the frame, the vertical cable system signifi cantly reduces the time and maintenance required to make adjustments when compared to a traditional vertical rod system. #1 ❏ 01 Secure everything from doors to drawers Aperio wireless access control solutions for healthcare facilities offer the accountability, convenience and security needed to operate effectively and effi ciently. The locks leverage existing access control systems to bring security deeper into a facility and to different applications — easily and affordably. The innovative solution allows end-users to manage many openings, protect employees, patients and visitors, ensure HIPAA compliance and prevent drug and equipment theft.
