When it comes to caring for the environment and tackling climate change, sustainability is key, and we are playing our part.

Specialist Door Solutions is focused on building a sustainable business that will benefit its customers and employees, as well as the wider society and environment in which we operate. With our role in the design and manufacture of hospital doorsets, we take our environmental, social and governance (ESG) responsibilities very seriously.


From the use of sustainably sourced materials, all the way to Net-Zero brand new hospital construction projects, Specialist Door Solutions (SDS) are also playing their part. Our doorsets have been specifically designed to meet our customer’s demanding requirements. As well as being incredibly hardwearing, they are hygienically safe and will maintain their integrity and durability over their 10-year lifespan. Thereby saving Estates Teams time and money on maintenance and replacement.


Through the latest technology and the implementation of best practices perfecting the blend between sustainability and usability, SDS is determined to remain the industry leader for innovation in the healthcare industry. We remain relentless in our pursuit of excellence across doorsets for healthcare, we are committed to significantly reducing our carbon footprint through the optimisation of manufacturing methods, the use of ‘green energy’ and sourcing and recycling material responsibly.

A ‘Carbon Neutral’ Company

We have calculated the carbon emissions produced by us and generated a ‘greenhouse gas report’. With this data, we are supporting projects that focussed on offsetting carbon and becoming more aware of our impact on the environment and our responsibility as a UK manufacturer to reduce our carbon impact.

We pro-actively invest in projects that offset carbon, including:

  • Renewable Energy
