Tata Steel UK announced that steel is being used to create innovative modular meeting rooms allowing care home residents to meet their families safely. The brainchild of Splash, an event space design business based in Stockport, the VisitorPod uses a high quality Tata Steel product which, as well as having a long life span and being recyclable, can resist intensive cleaning keeping residents and visitors safe. Selected for its clean credentials, Tata Steel’s Advantica L Control is being used on the interior walls and ceiling of the care home pod. Advantica L Control has many product benefits, including its ease of cleaning, and anti static properties, reducing the attraction of dust and dirt. The best way to ensure surfaces are free of microbes, including viruses, is regular intensive cleaning. The product is sufficiently robust to withstand this, which is important for this type of application.
While VisitorPod will provide a safe space to enable face-to-face interaction between care home residents and their families during the pandemic. In the future, they can be used as ongoing treatment rooms or creative spaces, enabling care homes to make the best use of the additional space. The first VisitorPod was installed at a care home in East Yorkshire just before Christmas.
