Won-Door FireGuard doors make all the difference
By Sharon Haddock
SEATTLE — The Won-Door doors in the vibrant new Aegis Living on Madison Project will effectively divide the hall corridors in the event of an emergency says the project manager.
That means everything to those charged with safeguarding precious lives.
"The doors appear to function well which in my line of work is just about perfect," Andrew Bjorn said. Bjorn works for
Anderson Construction, the company that built the assisted living facility which opened Oct. 2013 in Capitol Hill.
The six FireGuard accordion doors close in the middle of the main corridors on each level.
Bjorn said the doors meet the prescribed code and offer life-saving protection to
residents who would require additional time to exit in an emergency.
"These doors provide a smoke and fire barrier," Bjorn said.
Carl G. Cary, district manager for Won-Door's Pacific Northwest area, said Won-Door products have been chosen for all of the recent Aegis projects which makes a positive and impressive statement on its own.
Clark has gone on record as being committed to providing care he would want for his own loved ones.
Each project includes features designed with "the safety and joy of our residents in mind."
The grand opening of the Aegis Living on
Madison Project is set for Jan. 18, 2014.
