Altro Donation For Royal Alexandra Hospital SiMBA Rooms

SiMBA, the charity supporting families who have suffered the loss of a baby, has opened a new Family Room and Quiet Room at the Royal Alexandra maternity hospital in Paisley.
The project, funded by the Lola Commons for SiMBA Fund has been in planning and discussions since 2013. The rooms are for families experiencing the tragedy of losing a baby. The project was able to go ahead after locally bereaved families fundraised over £30,000 to support the SiMBA charity project.
As part of the project, Altro donated Altro Wood Safety Comfort flooring for the family and quiet rooms, and Altro Pisces flooring for the en-suite bathroom.
The family room provides an area for parents who are experiencing bereavement to stay from induction to delivery and for postnatal care so they can spend precious time with their baby. The quiet room, specifically designed for families returning to the hospital to spend time with their baby or see their babies name in the book of remembrance; it can also be a space for family members while visiting, to have a space out of the family room or to have some time alone.
Victoria Boulton, Lead designer with Grosvenor Interiors which works closely with SiMBA to create the look and feel of SiMBA’s rooms across Scotland says, “We chose Altro Pisces in Beach Hut for the en-suite as it has soft lilac tones that work well with the wall graphics. Also the shod/barefoot coverage and the homely look of the product is a big plus.
“Altro Wood Safety Comfort works well as a contrast to our furniture finish. The look, comfort and safety underfoot were important features.”
Altro Wood Safety Comfort offers aesthetics combined with comfort. It’s an ideal choice for areas that need to look good while helping to give comfort underfoot. This 2.85mm thick option offers 14dB sound reduction.
It is also suitable for wheeled traffic and low residual indentation facilitates the flexible use of equipment and furniture.
Altro Pisces achieves Class B to DIN 51097 for barefoot use, plus a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of =50 (Slider 96). Altro Pisces offers 16 soft-look shades; the result is the consistent, soft appearance that you would want from domestic interiors, with the lifetime sustained slip resistance you expect from Altro. Altro Pisces performs whether wet or dry, in shoes or barefoot.
