Health Care / Hospitals

Elevators in environments where the primary objective is for the care of individuals must be remarkably reliable. However, irrespective of how reliable the elevator is, if the freight elevator door is damaged or fails, the elevator can immediately be removed from service. The financial costs of an elevator failure in hospitals can become critical because the freight elevators typically serve the hospitals’ infrastructure; i.e., Central Supply, Food Service, material handling, etc.

Typically, hospital and medical center elevators have to accommodate equipment and freight movement. When any of these large items enter an elevator there is a reasonable chance that the door or frame can be knocked. Most entrance doors are engineered to withstand minor knocks, however, with the momentum of a moving bed occupied by a patient strikes the entrance door, the chance of distortion to the frame or door edge can be high. Peelle doors are designed and manufactured to withstand the daily exposure to such strikes, reducing shut downs due to door related issues.

Our experienced engineering team work with your chosen elevator company to deliver the ideal vertically sliding freight elevator door for your specific location, size of elevator and freight movement, before we design and manufacture your freight elevator door products.
