Context

When the lifts at Salisbury District Hospital were refurbished, the hospital Trust saw it as an opportunity to create a more pleasing environment for patients and visitors.

ArtCare, the arts in health service for Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust, designed a scheme that turned the lifts into time capsules, documenting the hospital’s history and pioneering healthcare treatments. ArtCare wanted to use inspiring historical imagery and bright colours to provide a visually appealing display.

As the lifts are in constant daily use and require stringent cleaning regimes, hardwearing and impact resistant finishes.

Product supplied

CS Acrovyn was specified for the project as it is designed for busy interiors experiencing high levels of wear and tear. The range includes a choice of options to match specific protection requirements and was perfect for refurbishing the lift interiors.

Each lift design, prepared by ArtCare, features different colours and a distinct theme – Nursing, Science and Innovation, Food, Children, Celebrations, and the History of Salisbury District Hospital.

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.

Outcome

By using CS Acrovyn by Design, the lifts have the added benefit of making Salisbury Hospital’s history collection accessible to everyone, providing interest for patients and staff.
