Heavy Duty PVC Covered Beds, Mattresses and Pillows
Waterproof mattresses and bed bases designed to resist the rigours of many and various challenging behaviours. Able to withstand bouncing, jumping and other types of robust behaviour.
Both mattresses and beds are constructed from solid blocks of foam. A more rigid density of foam is used in the construction of the bed bases.
They are readily moved for cleaning purposes and the all-foam construction can help minimise danger if thrown.
Beds, mattresses and pillows are covered in heavy duty, durable PVC polymer fabric.
The PVC fabric has high tensile and tear strengths to withstand challenging treatment. It is hygienic, easy to clean and formulated with high specification non-toxic additives.
The PVC fabric is fully waterproof. Seams are always an area of weakness in terms of waterproofing; we incorporate minimal stitched seams to maximise water resistance*. Seams are placed on vertical sides of both the mattresses and beds so that liquid cannot pool over or sit on the seams as can happen with seams that are on the horizontal edges.
The beds, mattresses and pillows are available, from stock, in either Cream or Dark Blue PVC.
The beds are made up ready for use in the usual way and, if necessary, a headboard can be fitted independently to the wall. Padded, waterproof headboards, side wall boards and PVC covered pillows are also available where extra protection for the user is required.
The PVC covered, NHS grade pillow is and fully sealed with 2 fitted vents to allow air to escape
The bed bases and mattresses are suitable for users weighing up to 20 stone.
Suitable for many challenging behaviour situations.
*We make every effort to maximise the longevity of our products, but please note:
The PVC fabric is resistant to most mild acids (urine). As with all materials, the PVC fabric will deteriorate over time. Urine will accelerate the deterioration of the fabric; the longer the urine remains on the fabric, the shorter the life of the product
Seams: Any seam is always a point of weakness where waterproofing is concerned. It is not possible to glue the PVC fabric and heat sealing can increase the ’bounce’ factor which is not usually desirable from a comfort or challenging behaviour aspect. All seams are close stitched with high strength cord and wherever possible, are placed on vertical sides of the products.
