Context

Construction Specialties (CS) supplied Acrovyn by Design wall panels for a new £18m Sub-Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Centre (SuRNICC) within Glan Clwyd Hospital in North Wales.

The Neonatal unit has been designed to meet the latest neonatal healthcare standards in terms of space allowance and optimum room layouts, as well as noise, light and temperature controls. A calm and non-institutional environment has been created through careful specification of colours and patterns for interior finishes and furnishings.

Product supplied

The Acrovyn range of wall protection solutions has been used throughout the unit for ease of maintenance and durability. Bespoke graphics depicting trees and colourful butterfly motifs were incorporated into Acrovyn by Design wall panels, fitted to full wall height in cot rooms, waiting and play areas, to brighten the environment.

Acrovyn by Design is a durable wall covering offering complete design freedom, and high quality image reproduction. The artwork is protected by a clear layer of impact resistant Acrovyn Sheet, which means that cleaning and scrubbing won’t affect the image, making it suitable for protecting walls in hygiene sensitive and/or high traffic areas.

Door leaves, door frames and architraves in clinical areas were faced with through-coloured, textured and impact resistant Acrovyn Sheet, which will significantly prolong their lifespan and minimise maintenance requirements. Two complementary colours were chosen to achieve over 30 points LRV colour contrast between door frames and door faces to ensure design code compliance.

In addition, a selection of Acrovyn profiles was used to protect walls and corners from impact damage caused by movement of beds and equipment. In clinical corridors HRB4C hand/crash rails were installed at mid wall height with FR225 rub rails at just above skirting level. Acrovyn Sheet was applied to walls in disposal holds, and all external corners were fitted with severe duty, Acrovyn corner guards to full or dado height.

Outcome

The comprehensive wall protection scheme specified for the project, fitted by CS’ in-house installation team Conspec Contracts, will ensure that the unit remains attractive, damage free and easy to maintain for years to come.
