Padded rooms provide safety and seclusion for those with variable challenging behaviours and special needs. Rooms may be fully padded, with bespoke wall and floor pads covering all surfaces in the room, or safe areas and spaces created within larger rooms.

Typically, padded rooms are used as chill-out, quiet, calming and de-escalation rooms. The protective wall and floor pads help protect clients from impact injuries caused from collision with hard surfaces. In addition, the safe areas or padded rooms may also form the basis for the development of a sensory room.

Padded Room Bespoke Design Service
We have extensive experience in the design of these rooms; project briefs have included requirements to protect both clients and the fabric of the room. Our fully bespoke service ensures that specific challenging behaviours are addressed and the comfort and safety of the client is maintained and accommodated within the overall design. We have installed projects for NHS and Private Hospitals, Secure Units, Care Homes, Respite Centres and Schools.

Wall and Floor Pad Manufacture
To create an ideal, safe environment, wall pads are manufactured from various densities of impact absorbing foam, factory mounted onto boards and covered with a highly durable, easily cleaned PVC fabric. The PVC polymer is formulated with high specification non-toxic additives and is easily disinfected to maintain its inherent hygienic properties.

Installation of Floor and Wall Pads
Our teams of specialist fitters ensure the secure fixing of the wall pads and use several different techniques to accommodate doors, windows, radiators and other items that may be located within the room. Our fitters are all CRB checked to the enhanced level and display clear identification whilst on site.

Wall and Floor Pad 'Supply Only' Service
We also offer a supply only service for our wall pad and floor pad products.
