Context

The  six patient lifts at Salisbury District Hospital required upgrading after a long period of neglect.

A programme of mechanical refurbishmen of the lfits was carried out by the hospital’s Estates Team. This presented an opportunity to upgrade the lift interiors, creating a more welcoming environment for patients during their visits.

ArtCare, the arts in health service for Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust, wanted to document the hospital’s history and pioneering healthcare treatments using historical imagery and bright colours to create an interesting design.

To ensure that the lifts could withstand constant daily wear and tear and stringent hospital cleaning regimes, the project also required hardwearing and impact resistant finishes.

Products used

CS Acrovyn was specified for the lifts' interiors as it is both easy to clean and extremely durable as well as offering a choice of options to match specific protection requirements.

Each lift design, prepared by ArtCare, was given a distinct theme and a specific colour.

Old photos from hospital archives were used in imaginative collages accompanied by text descriptions to identify development milestones in the six areas. The bespoke artwork was incorporated into CS Acrovyn by Design, a durable, wipe-clean wall covering which protects both the wall and the image from scuffs and abrasion.

In addition, 2mm Acrovyn Sheet in complementary colours was applied to the rest of the wall areas to provide a highly durable and easy to clean surface finish. The impact protection material is textured and through-coloured to hide bumps and scratches effectively.

Installed at mid-wall height, CS Acrovyn HRB20 Hand/Crash Rails offer patient support as well as protecting the walls from the costly damage caused by heavy hospital beds and trolleys.

Lifts used regularly by heavily loaded catering tugs were fitted with 200W50 rubber crashrails, to provide long lasting protection.

Outcome

The old lifts have now been transformed and will be easy to clean and will stay looking good for years to come.
