Refreshing Mental Health facilities with ECONOMIX

Supportive and welcoming environments can have a positive effect on those that visit clinics and hospitals. With the Government’s commitment to improving mental health facilities there is pressure to improve services and care for an increasing number of vulnerable people.

Danfloor’s ECONOMIX Nylon range is ideally suited to the Mental Health Sector due its heavy wear classification 33 and outstanding performance characteristics. In addition to this its impressive BRE credentials makes it an ideal flooring solution for anyone looking for an Excellent BRE rating.

As a result of this ECONOMIX was selected for use within the refurbishment of The Bedale Centre which is home to the Bognor Community Mental Health Team and West Sussex Early Intervention in Psychosis Service.

Ginni Bilham, lead Interior Designer, employed by Sussex Partnership Foundation Trust was tasked with updating and transforming the centre. Ginni’s main aim was to create a tranquil feeling throughout the facility, which in turn would help users of the centre to feel relaxed and comfortable during their visits. ”The Bedale Centre has been delivering care to vulnerable adults in the community for some time now. The décor was previously very plain and didn’t engage any of the character from the nearby town, neither did it encompass any of the Trusts values. Everyone loves a trip to the seaside and feels refreshed after a day by the sea so I wanted to create that atmosphere within the Centre.” Explains Gini.

Economix was selected as a durable cost effective carpet and Colour 266 was chosen as it closely resembles the look of water and sand. In addition to having the right look and feel for the project.
