Antur Waunfawr is a leading social enterprise based in Wales, providing work and training for individuals with learning disabilities.
As part of a project to improve the local offering, Antur Waunfawr developed a purpose-built facility, home to Beics Antur – an inclusive cycling project along with a wellbeing loft with a wide range of services available for public hire, including a unique Multi Sensory Room.
The brief for this project was to create a multisensory room inside a unique ‘loft’ space designed to support visitors with profound disabilities.
Senteq’s Area Designer met with the client on site to discuss the requirements in detail. The space was totally unique, featuring a low-level sloped ceiling and a grade II listed feature wall. Therefore, viewing the space and taking key measurements proved extremely valuable during the design process.
The client wanted to ensure that the room supported a wide range of service users. The proposed equipment installed featured a range of visual, sound and tactile equipment along with soft furnishing to make sure the visitors were comfortable in their surroundings.
Sensory Installation Process
Senteq’s qualified electrical engineers installed the specialist equipment. All equipment was fitted to the highest of standards with all electrical equipment conforming to the 18th Edition regulations.
The featured products include:
- Interactive Borealis Tube with a Four Way Hand Switch
- Acrylic Mirrors
- Fibre Optic Harness
- Solar LED100 Projector with Magnetic Effects Wheels
- I-Digital Infinity Tunnel
- Interactive Mood Lighting with a Cube Switch
- Tactile Discs
- Supervisor Control Panel inside a Lockable Cabinet
- Bluetooth Sound System
- Half Circle Plinth
- Floor Padding
Sensory Room Training
Once the installation process was complete, our engineering team conducted a training session with key members of staff to ensure they could provide the ultimate sensory experience for their visitors.
Since the installation, the room has been extremely well utilised by the client and local community. This local offering enables service users to enjoy sensory experiences with their families/carers.
As always, we were delighted to work with Antur Waunfawr on this project and are over the moon with the fantastic feedback.
