Kerry states “We believe we have created the right combination for living well at Deer Park, complementing the beautiful surroundings, the compassionate and skilled care, great food, and the ability to continue to make lifestyle choices prevailing throughout.” The carpets not only help to achieve this but also offer the following outstanding performance features:
Antimicrobial yarn treatment – All the ranges have been developed to include Bi-Ome®, an innovative antimicrobial treatment that is designed to kill harmful bacteria including those that can cause MRSA and E-coli. It has also proven its effectiveness against SARS-COV-2.
DSDC Accredited Collection – All the colours within the TONES, EQUINOX and ECONOMIX ranges received approval from Stirling University’s DSDC team; gaining either a 1a, flooring which can be used indiscriminately and 1b, flooring that can generally be used throughout a property designed for those living with dementia.
Extreme durability – The Economix and Evolution Collection are certified to British Standard classification 33 “Heavy Commercial Use” enabling them to withstand high volumes of foot and wheeled traffic and intense commercial cleaning. This makes the ranges ideal for corridors and communal areas.
Appearance retention – Manufactured using solution-dyed Nylon and Polypropylene yarns, the collections offer a locked-in colourfast system that ensures superior colour and light-fastness even when subject to harsh cleaning chemicals.
Spill safe – All of the selected carpets have an integral protective membrane, preventing liquid spills from penetrating through to the subfloor, reducing contamination, fungal growth and unpleasant odours.
Naturally sound-absorbent – danfloor carpets have great sound absorption qualities, achieving more than 28dB reduction in sound impact levels, which helps to create a “therapeutic environment” in which people can relax and communicate effectively.
