Broadmoor: world-renowned high-secure psychiatric hospital selects Ryno®

The newly improved Broadmoor Hospital opened its doors at the end of last year, with the new facility focusing on safety and the future of healthcare. By creating a positive, therapeutic environment the hospital aims to promote rehabilitation and recovery for those in need of high-secure psychiatric care.

“…the new hospital epitomises the ethos of hope and recovery at Broadmoor”

Carolyn Regan (Chief Executive of West London NHS Trust)

Colour has been thoroughly integrated into the building’s design; using the abundance of natural light that floods in through the modern stained-glass windows to cast a warming glow within the dining room. Ryno dining chairs from Pineapple provide vibrant splashes of lime green, contrasting with the bright orange structural beams that punctuate the space.

The chairs are joined by Cumulus Plus dining tables with extra-resilient solid grade laminate tops, securely fixed to a steel pedestal base for safety and durability. The smooth-edged, heavily weighted table helps to deter misuse and creates a safer space for both patients and staff.

Ryno lounge chairs have been used throughout the waiting areas within the building. Ryno products’ one-piece construction makes them extremely strong, and they cannot be disassembled and weaponised, unlike conventional chairs, making them perfect for challenging environments.
