About CHUM Hospital

The CHUM began as a network of three hospitals; the Hotel-Dieu de Montreal, the Hopital Notre-Dame, and the Hopital Saint-Luc. These three hospitals merged in 1996 and decided to create a mega-hospital to become more efficient.

Standard Metal Hardware’s Involvement

Standard Metal products included a variety of stainless-steel door hardware such as handles, custom sized protective plates, corner guards and frame wraps to thousands of doors. In a medical setting, it is imperative that the right level of commercial grade protection is provided to protect walls and doors from frequent impact from stretchers and wheelchairs

“Standard Metal is proud to be a part of this monumental project” says Sam Masri, VP Sales and Operations at Standard Metal. “Being able to ship large quantity of product in a short turnaround time was imperative for this project and our distributor and the customer turned to us because of our experience in this type of project.”
