Built on a wooded estate in the Andelle valley, Villa Saint-Michel is a retirement home for the elderly located in Charleval, in the Eure (27). Ideally located between Rouen and Paris, the human-sized EHPAD offers medical care adapted to the pathologies of old age but also to specific cognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease with a dedicated care unit. The unit of specialized care (P.A.S.A.) offers a 200 m² space with reminiscence workshops, therapeutic cooking and a Snoezelen space for sensory stimulation. In order to bring the premises into compliance and offer trafficmore adapted to the mobility of patients suffering from loss of autonomy, Villa Saint-Michel has launched a renovation and re-decoration plan.
To implement this project, the establishment called on the services of Patrice Marchand, one of the local specialists in the installation of floor and wall coverings. The experienced entity is particularly familiar with the health sector, which has already participated in the rehabilitation of many clinics in the Rouen area and the Normandy region.
In response to requests from the specifications, the building craftsman naturally turned to Construction Specialties France and the versatility of the Acrovyn® range of products. Practical to use, effective against impact and in compliance with current standards, the selected Acrovyn® wall protection products were delivered ready to install in order to make the site’s steps more fluid. Their flammability (PV fire: B-s2-s0) reinforces the safety of the reception structure and makes it compliant with the standards in force in ERP.
The corridors and common areas are now adapted to the building’s uses with anti-shock pannels and profiles made of Acrovyn®. Installed on the underside, on the corners of walls and as reinforcement on doors, Acrovyn® protections permanently protect against possible, but very frequent, impacts on ERP walls (impacts from healthcare carts, wheelchairs or walkers). Personal support was also increased on this project with the installation of handrails in the facility’s traffic. To offer impeccable hygiene, MCE 40 Bactericide has been selected. Originally designed for healthcare environments, this easily gripped ramp is the only profile on the market that kills 100% of bacteria by simple contact (ISO 22196 standard).
Wishing to offer a harmonious whole to this establishment, the company Patrice Marchand, was also involved in the choice of colours to coordinate them with the floor coverings. The wide choice of colours offered by the Acrovyn® colour chart has made it easier to combine colours with the fittings and decoration already present in Villa Saint-Michel.
