Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care
Oak handrail and Acrovyn wall protection
The Tameside Macmillan Unit offers essential, local treatment and support services for Tameside and Glossop residents who are diagnosed with cancer each year. Cancer survivors contributed their suggestions for the design of the building requesting that it be patient-centred, calming and with a non-clinical atmosphere.
Despite the need for a non-clinical feel, the facility needed to have a durable finish that would be easy to clean and maintain.
CS Acrovyn was specified for the public areas to create a stylish and durable finish.
A handrail was required for frail patients and CS supplied and installed the HRWS6C timber handrail in oak, with stainless steel brackets and end caps. The natural timber effect was warm and soothing and the handrail was formed into a curve to fit the line of the walls.
In addition, CS supplied a collection of 80 Series Acrovyn Crash rails on cushion mounts (BCR80 variation) and SCG50 corner guards, installed in the waiting areas and some clinical areas, offering heavy-duty protection for the walls and corners. CS Acrovyn Textured sheet was also supplied for the disposal hold area, to protect the walls from bumps and scrapes from passing trolleys and bins.
Conspec Contracts, CS's in-house installation team, ensured a high-quality, snag-free installation.
The interior protection package from CS allows the Tameside Macmillan Unit to care for its cancer patients in a calming, non-clinical environment, without the worry of impact damage and high maintenance costs.
