Furze Down School has recently partnered with Astor Bannerman to introduce two brand new hygiene rooms, marking a significant advancement in accessibility for students with additional needs. This project brings advanced facilities tailored to meet the unique requirements of students.

The newly equipped hygiene rooms each feature an Astor CT Nivano Wall Mounted Height Adjustable Changing Stretcher & an Astor OT200 Overhead Ceiling Track Hoist. These sophisticated hoist systems ensure secure and effortless transfers for students with mobility challenges, fostering independence and preserving their dignity.

Furze Down School now proudly boasts two fully-equipped hygiene rooms, showcasing Astor Bannerman’s commitment to creating a supportive and inclusive educational environment. The Astor CT Nivano stretchers and Astor OT200 hoists exemplify the company’s dedication to revolutionising accessibility in educational institutions.

Hygiene rooms in SEND schools play a pivotal role in accommodating students with the most diverse needs, offering a sense of belonging and empowering them with independence. 

As schools increasingly recognise the importance of hygiene rooms, Furze Down’s collaboration with Astor Bannerman sets a commendable example. The installation not only meets regulatory standards but actively contributes to the well-being and empowerment of students.

In conclusion, Furze Down School’s commitment to enhancing accessibility aligns with Astor Bannerman’s mission to revolutionise educational spaces. The new hygiene rooms serve as a model for other institutions, highlighting the importance of creating environments that cater to the diverse needs of every student.
