Contour Heating provided a coloured heating solution to one of the children’s wards at Leighton Hospital in Crewe.
Hospitals can be intimidating environments for young children. Unfamiliar buildings and rooms can raise levels of anxiety which is not conducive to wellbeing and recovery.
It was from a young child’s perspective, that the Estates Management Team at Mid Cheshire Hospitals approached the recent refurbishment of the children’s wards at Leighton Hospital. Their objective was to design a look and feel that transformed cold, clinical wards into friendly and calming environments for the children, whilst ensuring the highest levels of healthcare hygiene and functionality.
Leighton Hospital wanted to create a space that provided a safe heating solution while maintaining the jungle themed aesthetic they had created to make the wards feel more comfortable for patients and their families.
Contour Heating were keen to help Leighton Hospital in their mission to bring a heating solution to the space that wouldn’t upset the measures already put in place for their patients. They finished most of the DeepClean LST radiator guards in the wards, in RAL Green 6019.
The green of the guards blend in with the floor covering and is complementary to the blue panelling used behind the wall mounted washbasins and taps, situated in many of the rooms. The overall effect creates a calming and tranquil setting for children’s recuperation.
Contour’s DeepClean guards are also supplied with their patented drop-down front access doors. This gives faster, easier access to the radiators for cleaning to prevent the build up of dust and bacteria.
All Contours radiator guards are bespoke made to each individual radiator, protected with a BioCote® anti-microbial coating, helping maintain hygiene levels in critical care areas.
Colour can impact vulnerable environments for the better if used properly, for example they can create a calming and reassuring atmosphere when combined with interior designs. Find out more in Contour's Colour Psychology e-book.
