The Rainbow Unit at Brooklands Hospital is the first Low Secure unit for Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust. This dedicated state-of-the-art facility, designed by The Design Buro for patients with Autism and other learning disabilities, provides a flexible and caring environment with self-contained apartments, individual outside space and communal areas.
Our anti-ligature STOW and SWING door system coupled with our patented double action SwingHinge, in our distinctive Signature Waldorf Walnut finish, were carefully chosen for their attention to design detail whilst offering proven performance in the most challenging environments.
Working closely with Helen Whinray, Director at The Design Buro, it was important to select the right combination of finishes of our innovative door systems, to create a calming and grounding environment.
“People with Autism can see colours differently and more intense. We considered not only the colour but the shade/tone, appearance and texture and how they are integrated with each other in the selection of finishes for ‘The Rainbow Unit, Brooklands Hospital’. We worked closely with Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust and service users to ensure the finishes were suited to the end user and their challenges."
