ARMCHAIRS & SOFAS - CMD: WATERPROOF

We have been supplying our Robust Sofas & Armchairs (constructed to withstand the rigours of challenging behaviours) for many years and the customers' that have purchased these products tell us how happy they are with them.  However, we recognise this tough specification is not always needed and are pleased to introduce range of waterproof furniture for those where urine resistant, easy to clean covers are of prime importance.  

In order to provide our customers with suitable products, we have taken 3 popular styles of sofas and armchairs and adapted them for use for those with special needs where waterproofing measures are required but reinforced frames are not.

The stylish designs are indistinguishable from those supplied by quality high street retailers PLUS, they have the following adaptations which make them perfect for use in care homes and hospitals:

  • Upholstered in fully waterproof, stain resistant fabrics. *Seams are not 100% waterproof.
  • A wide choice of waterproof/breathable soft handle fabrics and leather look vinyls is available
  • The waterproof fabrics have anti-microbial and anti-fungal finishes to reduce infection from MRSA and similar micro-organisms
  • The fabrics are graded “Contract” use and resistant to staining from ink, urine, grease, blood etc
  • Flammability. The sofas and armchairs meet the requirements of BS5852, 0 and 1, Ignition Source 5 (CRIB 5)
  • The Donatello style is compatible for use with a mechanical hoist
  • Covers are fully fitted and not removed for cleaning
  • Seats are constructed with wooden bases as standard to aid waterproofing and safety
  • All 3 styles are available as armchairs, 2 seater, large 2 seater and 3 seater models (The Montana range also features a contemporary corner seating unit)
  • Our unique method of upholstering the furniture ensures there are no gaps down the backs or sides of the seat bases when the seat cushions are removed
  • The construction method allows for damaged arms to be independently replaced and resealed to maintain waterproof properties

UNIQUE UPHOLSTERY METHOD

Link Design suites are upholstered in a totally unique way. The area of the seat underneath the seat cushions has no gaps down the sides for liquid or dirt to become trapped in. The whole seating area can simply and effectively be washed down and then disinfected if necessary. Covers are permanently fitted and NOT removed for cleaning.
