The Safespace Room is a versatile custom-made safe room system, made from industrial strength PVC fabric and a padded steel frame. The ceiling is made from PVC netting allowing light and air in. The built-in window/s and door/s allow for supervision and for the user to engage with the environment. The Safespace Room does not affect the use of existing curtains, light fittings, heaters and electric sockets, television, music and sensory equipment.
The walls of the Safespace Room are positioned 25cm away from any hard surfaces, removing the risk of injury as they flex out on impact. It has an 8 cm foam floor for further safety. The Room thereby provides a soft, attractive, and safe environment for anyone that may at times be unsafe in an ordinary room, yet its robust design can withstand the toughest treatment. It eliminates hard surfaces, reducing the risk of injury and making it safe for the user to sleep to move, roll, or play without restraint. Safespace Room promotes calm with its pleasant, low sensory, soothing environment.
Independence & privacy
A separate space to be on your own, to express feelings, especially when upset or agitated, can often be denied to those who need high levels of supervision. A Safespace Room provides a safe private space, particularly important during the teenage years. This personal space can support the development of behaviour self-management.
Having a member of the family with challenging behaviour can be difficult for everyone. Siblings, as well as carers, may have their sleep disturbed or be at risk of injury. The Safespace Room can enable a family to have a more balanced everyday life. It has been described by parents as bringing ‘peace of mind’ into the family home.
