Title: Commercial-Grade Decorative Doors, Frames and Hardware: Contributors to Healing Environments and Positive Outcomes
Presenter: Sandy Matheny, ASSA ABLOY Director – Decorative Openings

 Doors and door hardware may be the most intimate points of contact we have with a building. We’re affected by the way a door looks, and by the way the lever or pull on that door feels. And while the first job of doors and hardware may be to keep what’s behind them safe and secure, they should also insulate us from noise; create a barrier against the heat and the cold; be sustainable and energy efficient; and, be aesthetically harmonious with the dominant character of a space. 

Savvy HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS are laser focused on providing HEALING ENVIRONMENTS, and improving the experiences and outcomes of their patients and staff. They know that safe, aesthetically appealing, comfortable, healthy interiors contribute to positive experiences and outcomes, and they’re working with their ARCHITECTS and INTERIOR DESIGNERS to deploy Good Design to differentiate their facilities, and to appeal to patients and care providers.
