Designed to offer students a place completely void of outside distractions, quiet rooms, sensory rooms and de-escalation rooms are now commonplace in many academic institutions across Canada and the United States.
Depending on their exact purpose, these types of rooms can be outfitted with equipment used to help stimulate the senses or can have nothing at all and simply serve as a quiet place for students who simply need some time alone. Constructed entirely using our custom padding department, these rooms often feature wall padding including custom cut-outs, door padding and customized floor padding to ensure the environment is also a safe one for those who use them.
One of our more recent projects led us to a local high school that was looking to have a quiet room installed for use by a portion of their student body. Named after Canada’s first female Senator, we were called into Cairine Wilson Secondary School to provide a solution for the space allotted for the room.
After acquiring both photographs and accurate measurements of the space, our designers got to work on the inclusive padding design which would see nearly every inch of exposed space inside the room converted to our custom padding.
Working closely with the team at Frecon Construction, we coordinated accordingly and completed the installation in tandem with some other work going on at the school. Today, the room is safely padded and provides the perfect space for those students in need of some respite.
