Recently Apex Safety Padding were in the North West of England completing an installation of safety padding in a special care school.
The job required making the final adjustments on site, a room that would meet & exceed the schools requirements for;
The site already had safety padding fitted but it was proving to be unsatisfactory both in its protection & durability and it was our job to completely remove the existing material prior to installing our own solution.
With just three and a half days to complete the works the deadline for finishing was looming right from the outset. As is normal in our standard working environments care and consideration had to be exercised to ensure minimal disruption was caused to the school and most importantly it’s pupils. When a safe space, such as a time out room, is out of commission for any amount of time it can cause issues for management of the school, with factors such as this it was key that the works were completed within the timeframe and that deadlines were adhered to.
As always the appropriate materials to complete the works were specified to the customer in advance, the materials we use have key attributes such as;
Flame retardant properties for foams and wraps
100,000 + Martindale test/rubs for all coverings
Anti-bacterial and Crib rated materials
The entire room was manufactured on site, this approach allows us to test fit each and every panel prior to final fitting resulting in one thing – the perfect fit and finish. With the perfect fit and finish our customers can be sure that maximum safety is being offered at all times.
We were contacted by the staff at a residential respite home to provide a safe environment for their patients. This care provider looks after persons with, but not limited to; learning disabilities, mental health difficulties and challenging behaviour.
The Brief and Solution.
The care provider required wall padding to be 50mm in depth, a height of 2 metres with a bright wipe clean colour finish.
After reviewing the the options such as level of protection required, durability and budget constraints we were able to offer the Apex Safety Padding solution. We manufactured several standard sections in our workshops and taylor made the remaining complex elements on site, items such door frames and radiator cover finishes.
