An Interview With Trevor Gillman, David Bailey Furniture Systems MD

An interview with Trevor Gillman, David Bailey Furniture Systems MD

We talked with Trevor Gillman, MD of David Bailey Furniture Systems last year, because 2020 marked 2 key milestones for Trevor:

  • 30 years at David Bailey and
  • Celebrating his 60th birthday

Trevor talks about the changes he’s seen in the business, such as the quadrupling of the factory capacity and the achievement of the company’s first million pound order in 2008.

Streamlined assembly timelapse

This short video shows a time-lapse assembly of tall cabinet furniture being assembled for a hospital and healthcare partner. Attention to detail and the ability to move the assembly process through the factory optimises the operation.

Sample Clean Room

Sample Room Revit Format

As part of our support for architects we produced a Sample Clean Room as an Autodesk Revit BIM module. This can be downloaded from our Architect Centre. The video here shows you what’s included with an exploded view showing the separate elements included.  This sample room is ready to use in your project or as in a proposal as an example of our range.

Each element of the clean room is adjustable allowing you to configure a sample room that utilises David Bailey furniture designed to your specification. Download the core Autocad Revit file in the Architect Centre.

Vacuum lift makes light work of heavy lifting & moving

Vacuum lift makes light work of heavy lifting and moving

The Vacuum Lift is designed to enable one operator to easily lift & move boards. Up to two sheets can be lifted and easily manoeuvred to the saw bed for cutting. Without the Vacuum Lift two or more operators would be required.

The lift adheres to our health and safety guidelines enabling David Bailey Furniture Systems to achieve Constructionline Gold Level 3 Certification and CHAS Accreditation.

Supporting architects & contractors with CAD capabilities

Supporting architects and contractors with CAD & BIM capabilities

Our focus is on craftsmen making bespoke furniture for hospital and healthcare environments, but it’s also important to support architects and contractors with advice so we can provide a total service – our CAD system helps us do that.

Bullnose worktops with fully moulded upstands

Laminate worktop post-forming process

For a clinical environment we manufacture bullnose worktops with a fully moulded upstand. We manufacture these in our factory in Broadstairs, Kent, UK, where we have a post-forming machine specially designed for this purpose.  These conform to the HTM 63 and HTM 71 standards and ensure that the worktops:

  • Are easy to clean, disinfect & decontaminate
  • Reduce cross-contamination risks
  • Have no joints, therefore no cracks or holes for dirt and germs to penetrate
  • Are hardwearing, surviving impact marks and cuts from daily wear and tear
  • Can be renewed by scrubbing or sanding to easily remove blood, x-ray developer fluid and other staining materials

Our fully-moulded worktops are constructed from highly durable 0.9mm postforming grade laminate and are bonded onto either an MDF or moisture-resistant particle board core, and can be specified in an extensive choice of colours.

Fully moulded, postformed upstands are supplied 50mm high, with the option of 50mm high loose upstands if preferred. Our brochure explains all the different variations of bullnose and post-formed worktops we can provide.

Watch us preparing a worktop in the post-forming and hot press processes at our factory.
