Ultra H2O would be needed to fulfil this challenging project. The Corriewood Private Clinic wanted a flooring that would look warm and non-institutional, but at the same time deliver a non-slip safety solution.

Selecting a cladding material for the new Jigsaw Building at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital presented no puzzle for architects Stride Treglown. Trespa® Meteon® was chosen to provide a ventilated facade, scoring on appearance and cost, as well as contributing to energy efficiency. The building is wrapped in variegated tones of Trespa® Meteon® Wood Decors cladding on the first floor, punctured with ribbon windows, white brick to the ground floor and an undulated roof form to conceal roof top plant. It was also important for the client that the building was as low maintenance and as energy efficient as possible and the 600 sq metres of Trespa® Meteon® cladding contributed to this. In total, seven timber effect grains and colours from the Trespa® Meteon® range were supplied. Stride Treglown varied the mix of these along the main elevations providing visual interest but also breaking up the appearance of the large scale elevations. By specifying the matt effect panels – all of which were new additions to the Trespa® Meteon® range when the project was designed – the building achieves a more natural timber appearance in direct sunlight as there is a reduced glare from the matt texture. Trespa® Meteon® is a decorative high-pressure compact laminate (HPL) with an integral surface manufactured using the company’s unique in-house technologies.

Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers from Samuel Heath have become the preferred choice of clinicians, health estate managers and designers when looking at the construction and improvement of mental health facilities. Designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK, Powermatic door closers meet all relevant fire and accessibility regulations. They are particularly suitable for mental health facilities because they are installed neatly between the door and frame, meaning that they are totally concealed when the door is closed. Powermatic is the perfect choice where anti-ligature and anti-barricade measures need to be taken, and is recommended for use on many proprietary door systems. The absence of surface mounted controls means that when the door is closed, the door closer is out of sight and cannot be used as a point of ligature. Powermatic’s concealment also reduces the risk of damage through vandalism and helps to improve the aesthetics of interiors, creating the less institutionalised, more therapeutic environments valued in psychiatric care.

LST radiators are specially designed to provide comfortable heat but in a radiator whose casing never exceeds 43 degrees centigrade. This makes them ‘safe to touch’. LST radiators are key where there is a need for special heat emitters that are ideal for safety critical environments – especially those that need to meet NHS Guidance for ‘Safe Hot Water’ and surface temperature in care
