Ideal Care Homes (part of the LNT Group) has 38 residential and dementia care homes in the Midlands and the North of England. Vicaima has supplied a total of 6,500 Oak Natur doors which have been fitted throughout these developments in both public areas and private rooms. Oak Natur was chosen in a pre-finished flush option to reflect the stylish design and high interior specification of these homes. This high quality range is both beautifully designed and competitively priced, making it a viable commercial proposition where such a large quantity of doors is required.
Owner, Lawrence Tomlinson comments on the importance of building design and interior styling in residential homes for elderly people, he says: “Practical building design combined with thoughtful interior design and high quality specification contributes greatly to the welfare and wellbeing of residents.” He goes on to say: “We exist to provide a safe, secure and enriching environment for our residents, that’s why we place such emphasis on the quality of interior design and fittings. Vicaima interior doors fit our ethos completely – they extremely stylish and good looking, they are of high quality construction and minimise maintenance.”
Another important advantage of choosing a Vicaima interior door is the wide range of performance and finishing options that are available. For instance, doors can be supplied with hinges, locking system, handle and eye viewer, and there is a choice of framing solutions to suit application and requirement. In the case of these care and residential homes, a pre-finished, flush option was chosen. Various performance characteristics can be specified, from security, fire door and acoustic, to a combination of fire and acoustic.
Maintenance is also a key consideration in any large development – particularly in public areas which are subject to a high degree of traffic. Vicaima interior doors are designed to perform – wherever they are fitted – and this inherent toughness helps to keep maintenance to a minimum.
