Welcome to Elite Architectural Ironmongery

John Radcliffe Hospital

Elite were appointed by the main contractor in 2014 to supply the ironmongery on this prestigious project in the heart of Liverpool, we supplied over £1.4M of architectural ironmongery and automatic door pieces for the 640+ bed facility.

This comprised of supplying ironmongery to over 4,500 door sets over two buildings and providing a solution for 116 sets of automatic opening doors, which included emergency breakout units. There was also a proportion of lead lined doors supplied to theatres and x-ray rooms, which needed Elite to design bespoke ironmongery to meet the door and frame thickness as well as the fire rating.

Elite also played a pivotal role in designing the master key system which included approximately 3,000 cylinders under a 71 sub-suite system. The project required weekly design meetings with the main contractor, architect, hospital trust and various sub-contractors and at times we had staff based on site which this project demanded.
