Safety for residential aged care residents must be addressed in a number of different ways including flooring selection, infection control, universal accessibility, air quality, security and privacy.
X260 Medi-Vet Anti-Microbial is a single pack one application spray on system that deeply penetrates new or existing concrete. It provides curing, permanent waterproofing and deep matrix resistance to moulds, fungi and microbes. X260 Medi-Vet conforms to the moisture suppressant requirements as per AS1884-2012. It provides an effective moisture Barrier for impervious floor coverings and coatings.
X260 Medi-Vet Anti-Microbial is an internal water barrier that sets up a permanent gel within the capillaries and voids. Applied as 100% colloidal liquid it penetrates deeply into concretes matrix reacting with the alkali left over after hydration (calcium hydroxide) and the unhydrated or partially hydrated cement particles promoting production predominantly of calcium silicate hydrate (CSH) and 100% colloidal silicate, permanent, complete gel. In effect it makes the concrete structure impermeable giving integrity and longevity.

An ‘accessible threshold’ is defined as a threshold that is level or, if it is raised, has a total height of not more than 15mm, a minimum number of upstands and slopes and with any upstands higher than 5mm chamfered.
Choose sliding doors with single, double, triple or up to 8-track designs; slim line options; slide or lift-and-slide mechanisms; manual or automatic operation. Reynears bi-fold doors have a choice of four different threshold options from flat bottom to high performance, and for CF 77 there is a slim line variant too, with narrower door leaf profiles.
Flexibility translates into increased and varying use of the space as well enabling the rationalization of the building with financial and environmental benefits.
Flexible design should address future trends and changes in patient profile for residential care facilities. The increasing demands on space due to increased patient numbers requires flexible solutions. The ability to make changes to two spaces such as interlocking rooms is sought after as it provides better outcomes for residents. For example, couples are able to share spaces, with the flexibility that when the division of space is no longer required it can be reconfigured accordingly. Updating the look of the room when an operable wall is in place is a simple process. Recovering the face or even replacing the panel of an operable wall can be a cost benefit for upgrades.
The flexibility that Hufcor Operable walls offer can significantly lower building costs. Space is at a premium, and the demands to do more for less increases. Space adaptability and effective space management is therefore critical. Issues pertaining to privacy are also addressed with the use of flexible space solutions.
Using this well-designed, aesthetic folding sliding system, wooden and aluminum shutters up to 30 kg can be moved easily and stored to save space.
Sliding solutions on buildings set distinctive accents in the overall architectural picture. They are the first business card of building architecture, an expression of design identity, the make-up on the face of the house. Sliding solutions offer functional benefits that are in no way inferior to the visual ones, and the Hawa Frontfold folding sliding system proves that most impressively. This fitting makes light work of sliding wooden or aluminum shutters, that are then folded and stored into a small space at a 90 degree angle to the window front. For the interior, a range of possibilities open up for residents with fascinating light and shadow interactions, whereas, the exterior creates a picture of a lively, changeable façade. There are also benefits to the environment, as variable outside shading on sunlit windows can keep the inside temperature considerably lower, reducing energy consumption.

The updated ConceptWall 50-FP enables triple glazing in fire resistant glazed curtain walls, ensuring a high level of thermal performance throughout the whole façade surface.
The ConceptWall 50-FP fire rated curtain wall is designed to provide an EI 30 or EI 60 fire resistance, whilst still offering the same advantages as the standard ConceptWall 50 façade system.
ConceptWall 50-FP also serves the tendency to use big and heavy glass panes and allows for the creation of transparent designs.
The 2021 update of this system allows it to carry triple glazing and offer a thermal performance up to par with the standard ConceptWall 50 system, creating a consistent performance across the whole façade.
An investment with a future
“Micro” pays off many times over
Around the globe, the masses are moving to the cities. As a result, available space is shrinking while per-square-meter prices are on the rise. No wonder that high density living, known as microliving, is becoming popular.
Urbanization and individualization – there is one clear answer to both of these mega-trends: Microliving. Living solutions that are as simplified as possible, at a central location, practical infrastructure and fair costs are sought after. Microliving enables many people to enjoy an urban lifestyle. At the same time, the concept offers investors tangible advantages.

This facade breathes, because the perforated aluminium folding sliding shutters not only serve as privacy and sun protection, but also ensure a unique lighting experience in the building.
Sliding shutters are visually unique, eye catching whilst contributing to sustainability principles. They characterize façades and reduce energy costs.
The face of a building is given variable expressions by means of sliding technology. Regardless of whether the façade is to be open or closed depending on the time of day, whether it needs to withstand certain climatic influences or it needs to convey a unique architectural idea. Sliding technology is the key to the best and most individual solution.
Sliding solutions on buildings has many facets:
- They are a versatile solution for sliding shutters and window fittings
- They offer a wide range of options for design and temperature management
- They are open to every conceivable material
