Twinfix find the solution at Liverpool Heart & Chest Covid-19 Testing Facility


W


hen Liverpool’s leading specialist heart and chest hospital trust wanted to set-up a drive through


Covid-19 testing facility, Twinfix were approached by Actua to find a solution to provide shelter within their client’s Covid testing pick up points. With its team of experts in polycarbonate


and roof-glazing fields, Twinfix works on developing the best, newest and highest quality products. A family business, Twinfix has been involved in the polycarbonate roof- glazing market for 32 years. The area was a small courtyard and


the proposal was to create a turning circle where vehicles could drive in and pick up their testing kit and drive out, the canopy would provide shelter for the vehicles while doing so. There were further complications as the


area is also used for general hospital deliveries therefore meaning the height of the canopy needed to facilitate lorry/wagons.


Twinfix designed two bespoke structures spanning a total of 82 m2


With the hospital’s requirements in mind, :


Section 1: Free standing duo-pitch canopy completely independent of the building· Section 2: Wall mounted lean-to mono-pitch canopy with vertical glazed screen to side & front elevation. Section 1 comprised of galvanised steel


posts with upper aluminium sub-frame roof, whereas, the full structure of Section 2 was manufactured in aluminium.


Both structures were fitted with non-fragile Multi-Link-Panel roof-glazing system glazed with 25 mm clear polycarbonate. Joe Astley, capital projects officer at


LHCH commented: “The trust is very pleased with the services received. From a quick turnaround in manufacturing to a trouble free and speedy installation, Twinfix did a great job at LHCH.”

The impact of good acoustics


Light, air, acoustics and spatial organisation are recognised as essential elements when designers work on medical and healing facilities. This is because they have an impact on the treatment of body and mind. Now a wealth of information is available from Troldtekt, a leading developer and manufacturer of acoustic ceiling and wall solutions. This is available in an online series of articles which focuses on visions and practices opportunities and pitfalls within healing architecture. Troldtekt’s natural and inherently sustainable panels are available in a variety of different surfaces and colours and contribute positively to a building’s BREEAM, DGNB and LEED ratings. Available in various sizes and in four grades from extreme fine to coarse, the panels can be left untreated or painted in virtually any RAL colour. Samples, case studies and technical guidance are available from Troldtekt.
