Maintaining hygiene is incredibly important within the healthcare sector, as it helps to reduce the spread of infection, specifically HAIs (hospital acquired infections). HAIs are dangerous in many different ways, causing harm to those in the facility, which can further lead to stretching out the facility’s resources and increasing the length of patient stays.

For over 20 years, Trovex, a family-business has been specialising in the manufacturing of hygienic products. Namely, wall panels, cladding and doors which are built for durability, strength, easy-to-clean and above all, hygienic.

Beyond healthcare, there are a number of high traffic areas that require hygienic areas including schools, kitchen facilities, shopping centres, stadiums and more.

PVC doors and how they are made

Trovex runs an operation in Hertfordshire and Norfolk, where doors and panels are made on site and distributed across the UK.

One example is the PVC wrapped door. These doors are commonly used in hospitals, kitchens, schools and clinics – and will usually be the doors that you walk through when you enter anything medical and surgical. Their design helps to promote hygiene because they are strong, easy to clean and limit the spread of germs and diseases.

PVC doors are considered a good investment, being hard to break and therefore a durable addition to facilities where hygiene is a top priority. These doors can (and should) be made to the exact measurements of their specified doorways. The manufacturer can measure these doorways to ensure that the hygienic product will fit perfectly into the frame and include installation.

PVC wrapped doors are made in high pressures and high temperatures to ensure the optimum level of hygiene is kept. These doors are vacuum-bonded, which increases their durability. Being vacuum-bonded also helps them to be very easy to clean, which is vital for hospitals and other sectors that require high hygiene standards.

PVC doors can be custom-made based on colour, size and include patterns. Whilst the production of a PVC door requires a lot of energy, any post-production waste is regenerated into raw material, which has minimal carbon impact.
