Offering in-patient mental healthcare and support, Isle of Wight Foundation Trust upgraded their existing Sevenacres Ward in 2017, with the project led by Studio Four Architects.
Home to service users at different stages of their recovery pathway, the architects knew it was vital that the environment should also reflect this. That’s why the unit offers increased service user independence and dignity for those further along the recovery process – whilst also catering for those in more vulnerable stages who require monitoring on a more regular basis.
Hosting a range of therapeutic activities aimed at maximising service user independence, the Trust required doorsets and components that would not only offer superior safety, but also enhance the recovery process. Our anti-barricade doorsets and electronic locksets helped achieve this.
With a separate Seagrove Ward dedicated to helping service users at the beginning of their in-patient treatment pathway, the Trust needed seclusion room doorsets to create a more secure environment.
Having been so satisfied with our anti-barricade doors and electronic locksets, the Trust are in the process of installing our seclusion room doorsets in this ward.
