    One of the fastest growing portions of our business is that of custom wall padding for a variety of different uses. From schools and educational facilities to healthcare and correctional facilities, more and more organizations around the world are turning to our padding department for custom-designed padded room solutions.

    We were recently contacted by the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre (OCTC) to design, manufacture and install some custom wall padding for their Therapy Room at their Thurston Drive location in Ottawa.

    Since 1951, the OCTC has become a leader in providing specialized care for those with multiple physical, developmental and associated behavioural needs in the greater Ottawa area. Today the OCTC offers a wide variety of programs and services aimed at benefiting children, youth and adults in communities across Eastern Ontario.

    The treatment centre was looking for a precautionary padding solution for their new Assessment and Therapy Room, and our in-house design team quickly got to work creating a wall padding solution for the centre. As with any custom work, our team visited the facility to properly prepare all shop design drawings, and ensure the proper measurements were taken to guarantee a seamless padding solution.

    Once designed, our installation technicians were on-site installing the wall padding ensuring a proper fit, and careful placement of each panel of padding. In the end, the OCTC had a fully turn-key and cost-effective solution to their need for a specially padded room.



    Our padding department regularly takes on similar projects much the same as this one for the OCTC. Today there is a wide variety of possibilities in the design and functionality of padded environments and we can quickly and effectively accommodate our customer's requirements, providing the perfect solution to each facility. Here are a few of the different types of padded rooms we can provide:

    • Quiet Rooms
    • Sensory Rooms
    • Calming Rooms
    • Seclusion Rooms
    • De-escalation Rooms
    • Tranquility Rooms
    • Remand Rooms
    • And more!
