DSDC product Accreditation

danfloor are pleased to announce that the Equinox Collection and Economix range have received Dementia Design Product Accreditation from the University of Stirling's Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC).

The DSDC have undertaken a review of the Equinox, Tones, Evolve and Economix ranges and have rated the products design in relation to the DSDC dementia design principles and their usability within a dementia-inclusive environment.

We are pleased to announce that the majority of colours have been accredited with ratings ranging from 1a, use indiscriminately and 1b, which mean they can be used throughout. A few more patterned colours have received a rating of 2, which are still considered suitable for dementia inclusive environments, but must be used with some caution.

As part of our commitment to the healthcare sector, and for those living within a care environment, we will continue to work with Stirling Universities DSDC team during the development and colouration of our ranges. This will ensure our products continue to meet the DSDC dementia design principals and contribute to creating dementia inclusive environments.
