Healthcare Project, Palmerstown Residential/EMI Home, Belfast

Situated in East Belfast, Palrerstown is a new state of the art, purpose build care provision which has been designed with the needs of the individual in mind. Super Seal Window Systems Ltd in collaboration with the architect worked to ensure that products were available which would best meet the aesthetic vision for the building, while also being especially robust and easily operated in order to meet the everyday practical demands placed upon them. The brief required windows certified to Secure By Design standards and specific Fixed Restrictors for the use on this type of housing provision where user safety was paramount. Electronic door lock mechanisms, an unconventional inclusion on uPVC doors, were another key design element allowing doors in the EMI to be controlled from a central computer station by healthcare staff.
