TRULY WATERPROOF

When sourcing a seclusion mattress it is important to ensure the furniture you are selecting is truly waterproof. Truly waterproof means not only are the materials used waterproof but the construction methods too. Forté seclusion mattresses are all truly waterproof – 100% waterproof PVC fabrics with high frequency welded seams.

High frequency sealed and welded seams meet infection control requirements of facilities and prevent seepage of fluid through open sewn seams. These electromagnetically fused seams protect against the risk of penetration fluid as they 100% seal off to prevent ingress of fluid or infection. Forté’s covers are reinforced with additional heavy duty stitching at stress points within the cover.

 

FIRE RETARDANT

The mental health care environment has patients with special needs that may differ from the acute care environment. Patients typically suffer mental illnesses which is a health condition that involves changes in emotion, thinking or behaviour (and/or a combination of these). Mental illnesses are associated with distress and/problems functioning in social, work or family activities. There can be a lot of risks involved with patients that have poor mental health – including self and property harm, for example, risk of fire.

As such, it is a standard for mental health medical equipment for all equipment to be anti-ligature and fire retardant.

For a mattress or support surface to truly meet mental health standards, All materials used must be fire retardant, including what is inside the cover.

 

What does Fire Retardant mean? A fire retardant is a substance that is used to slow down or stop the spread of fire or reduce its intensity. This is commonly accomplished by chemical reactions that reduce the flammability of fuels or delay their combustion.

All foams used in Forté mental health mattresses meet BS5852 Source 5 Specification. Covers meet BS 6807 ignition source 5 and BS 7175 ignition source 5 standards.

What is BS5852 Source 5 Specification?

Test methods for assessing the ignitability of covers and fillings used in upholstered products such as mattresses, by smouldering and flaming ignition sources

BS5852 is a British Standard that describes methods for assessing the ignitability of single material combinations, e.g. cover and foam core of a mattress, when subjected either to a smouldering cigarette or to flaming ignition sources of thermal output ranging from that of a burning match to that approximating to the burning of four double sheets of full-size newspaper, as might be applied accidentally to any item of furniture.

Source five is one out of seven ignition sources of the BS5852;

Source Combustion type Ignition source Details Energy inputs, Kw.h
5 Flaming Crib 17 g 0.08

 

What is BS 7175 ignition source 5 Specification?

Methods of test for the ignitability of bedcovers and pillows by smouldering and flaming ignition sources. BS 7175 describes methods of test for the ignitability of bedcovers and pillows when subjected to smouldering and flaming types of ignition sources of differing severities.

Source five uses a wood crib 5. A crib is composed of wooden planks glued together. Lint is attached to the bottom. After adding propane-diol, the crib is placed on the test rig and ignited with a match. If no flaming or progressive smouldering is observed on both cover and foam core, the test is recorded as no ignition and the material passes the test.

 

ANTI-LIGATURE

The environment in a mental health facility, correctional facility, group home, or any application where safety and security can often feel isolated and confined, leaving residents in a fragile state. In these environments, everyday items, even something like bedsheets, could be seen as a means of harm, either to oneself or to others.

That is what makes anti-ligature furniture in correctional facilities, psychiatric facilities and behavioural health facilities critical. Whether it’s a piece of resident room furniture, like a mattress, or dining room furniture such as a dining table, furniture in these applications must be designed to prevent injury to self or others and must have absolutely no areas where any object can be tied to.

 

Mental health standards specify support surfaces must be anti-ligature. A ligature point is anything that can be used to tie a cord, rope or other material for the purpose of hanging. An anti-ligature product is one that reduces the risk of self-harm through strangulation, by making it as difficult as possible to secure a cord or other material in place. Ligature resistant mattresses do not contain any points where cords, ropes, or even bedsheets can be attached.

Hanging or strangulation is the most common method of suicide for patients in psychiatric care (used in approximately 75% of cases), so minimizing ligature risks is a key area of concern for care providers.

To achieve an anti-ligature mattress, the cover must be fully sealed and enclosed with no zip or means of access inside the cover. The cover must be constructed with welded seams and reinforced with stitching on the underside of the cover for ultimate seam strength. Strong seams and cover construction, as well as heavy duty fabrics, ensure the support surface is pickproof to prevent the concealment of contraband and protect against any foam core damage.

It is important to understand that a ligature resistant support surface should not be taken lightly. While inmate and patient mattresses may seem like something insignificant when compared to other obstacles, it is in fact one of the most crucial parts in ensuring a safe and healthy environment. There are many challenges when designing behavioural health and correctional facilities because they must have an atmosphere that is aesthetically pleasing and welcoming, in order to support the healing process, and keep vulnerable residents safe and well. Research by professionals has proved by removing access to any method where self-harm can occur is effective in its prevention.

A well-built anti-ligature mattress should give you peace of mind, knowing your residents and staff can remain comfortable and safe!

 

4-WAY ROTATIONAL

The Fourfront mattress range has been designed to be usable on four different sides – both head to foot and flipped, Top and bottom.. Caregivers can have peace of mind that patients with behavioural concerns can play with and rotate their mattresses, and will receive the right quality of care and comfort.

Typical Pressure Care foam mattresses are only designed to be used in 1 or 2 directions, with a softer, immersion pressure care foam on the top, and firmer foam used on the base, meaning they are not ideal for use in mental health applications. Where is the foundation if it is not on the base of the mattresses?

4-Way rotational mattresses have a unique design whereby the foundation of the mattress is the centre layer with immersion regions on both the top and bottom sides.
