Colourful bathroom modification chooses Roomer S for hoisting

Our recently completed installation of a Roomer S hoist in a bedroom and ensuite conversion of an existing property really catches the eye!

The brightly coloured mosaic tiles in the bathroom are complemented by the multi-coloured blinds across the sliding doors to the patio area.

This conversion required the redevelopment of the existing space to provide a bedroom and therapy/play space adjoined by a bathroom with a flush floor shower area. The client required minimal handling and had asked for a hoist system that connected both rooms.

Unfortunately the wall between the bedroom and bathroom was load bearing with a steel beam running through above the doorway. This made it impossible to create a full height doorspace which allow a traditional track system to provide the room-to-room design.

The occupational therapist met with our project consultant on site to discuss the options and was taken by the proposal of a hoist which could make the transfer without having to adapt the doorway at all. The client came to evaluate the product in our showroom and gave it their approval.

Each space now has its own room-cover XY track system fitted to the ceiling, with the specialist Roomer S hoist unit which allows the patient to be transferred through the doorway between rooms. The XY tracks are equipped with flush-mount trolleys providing extra lift height within the rooms.

This system provided a simple solution removing the requirement for extensive structural works, and keeping the project to a tight deadline allowing the family to move back into the property as soon as possible.
