Custom made wet room flooring solutions for Voyage Care
On The Level first started supplying Voyage Care around five years ago when, having experienced problems with slow water drainage in some showers, the company asked On The Level to design a solution to stop water flowing into other areas of the bathroom.
On The Level is an expert in the design and manufacture of custom-made shower formers which exceed normal stock shapes and sizes. The custom-made formers created for Voyage Care projects to solve the excess water problem, cover the entire bathroom.
These 'complete wet floors' were designed and precision engineered with a gradient running across the entire area towards the gully outlet, solving the problem of water escaping from the shower areas. The complete wet floor was then covered with an anti-slip vinyl sheet floor.
James Clark, Managing Director at On The Level says: "Working with Voyage Care is always an absolute pleasure. We suggested the idea of designing a complete wet floor for their bathrooms because quite often, when a user is showering who needs assistance, water can splash outside the showering zone resulting in water flowing everywhere.
"By having a gradient over the entire bathroom floor the possibility that water will run in the opposite direction to where it should be going - the drain - is drastically reduced. We have worked with Voyage care on a number projects and we look forward to working with them in the future."
Voyage Care is a UK wide company providing healthcare, social care and support to a range of people of all ages with disabilities and associated problems in their homes or in a care home environment. Currently operating around 400 properties, all Voyage Care's development schemes are managed and designed in-house, working with carefully chosen partners like On The Level.
