Care Home sockets provided by Scolmore
Scolmore’s Click Mode and Deco Plus ranges were chosen for the switches and sockets throughout the Mill Lodge Care Home in Kegworth – a 27 bedroom facility that was a former NHS care home and is now the responsibility of Rushcliffe Care Group.
Mill Lodge provides secure inpatient care for adults. The property is a single storey building made up of four main wings and comprising 27 bedrooms, four main corridors, kitchens and dining facilities and a range of offices and clinical support rooms.
Scolmore’s Deco Plus switches and sockets in a black nickel finish feature in the bedrooms - with three light switches and double sockets in each room – as well as in all the corridors and nurses’ stations. Deco Plus is a comprehensive range of more than 800 premium decorative metal wiring accessories. The smooth contemporary curves of the Deco Plus range are available in various finishes to complement any room.
For the main kitchen, four satellite kitchens and offices, the Click Mode range has been installed. The smooth modern lines of the Mode range complement the Deco Plus products utilised. All white moulded and Click Mode Part M wiring accessories are manufactured using Urea Formaldehyde, which has similar inherent properties to antimicrobial additives that inhibit the growth of infectious diseases. When independently tested, all products achieved a 99.99% kill off rate across all four types of the strains of bacteria – MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella and Klebsiella Pneumonia.
Simon Bell from SB Electrical, the contractor responsible for the specification and installation of Scolmore’s products, commented: “I’ve been using the Click Mode range of wiring accessories since the first time the range was launched. The flexibility to integrate different inserts onto a plate was quite unique at the time and I now can’t remember a time when I used anything else. Scolmore is a great company to work with; the products are a great quality and really robust. I’ve been involved in a lot of the DIY SOS makeover projects and never hesitate to recommend Scolmore’s wiring accessories and lighting products when I can.”
