We were pleased to have worked alongside Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust and the project’s principal contractor Storm Building during the recent refurbishment of the Shannon Ward on the ground floor of Dennis Scott Unit at Edgware Community Hospital.
Furniture in hospitals has to withstand high levels of traffic and cope with extensive cleaning to alleviate hygiene concerns. Shannon Ward is an adult acute mental health ward, therefore delivering furniture that provides a non-clinical appearance without negating the importance of hygiene and safety was paramount.
Our Sovie beds were selected alongside our Hamble Plus ranges for the bedrooms. Sovie offers extreme strength, durability and the outer skin provides a finish that is water resistant and anti-bacterial. The smooth edges of the Sovie bed help reduce ligature points and, for extra security, its design allows the bed to be floor fixed to prevent dirt collecting underneath and provide a secure base for patients.
Our Fusion chairs are heavily weighted to 45kg with a reinforced plywood seat, which deters mishandling and offers a stable seating solution.
An enclosed reinforced base with skis also helps prevent damage to flooring when being moved. These chairs paired with our Cumulus Plus tables help facilitate a secure dining environment alongside providing easy to clean surfaces.
In the TV rooms, our lockable wall mounted Hamble Plus TV cabinet with sloping top is designed especially for challenging environments. The Hamble Plus range hosts a variety of ingenious designs to aid in reducing ligature points and providing peace of mind when located in private areas of the ward.
Our fully stitched, secure Boden Bean Bags in hygienic anti-bacterial coverings, offer comfort and allow for flexible seating configurations. Our Skye Plus Tub chairs used throughout the refurbishment were chosen for their compact yet reinforced design.
We deliver mindfully designed furniture that is exactly fit for purpose. By working alongside NHS Trusts and listening to the needs of our customers, we can ensure we find a solution to fit their unique set of challenges.
