Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability
Riser doors are considered an imperative building material within the healthcare industry, as they easily conceal and help provide ease of access to key building utilities, which can easily disrupt day-to-day activities if not carefully secured. These systems are considered an integral part of any building infrastructure.
