Medway Secure Training Centre provides secure accommodation for young offenders between 14 -17 years old. Their existing furniture had seen years of use and was beginning to fail, posing safety and security risks to staff and trainees.
Safety and durability were of paramount importance due to the nature of the environment, so Ryno chairs were the perfect candidate. Their one piece construction is exceptionally durable and their heavily weighted design makes them almost impossible to pick up and throw. To give total peace of mind, the centre took advantage of our free trial service so they could be sure that the new chairs were able to cope with the demands of the environment.
After thorough testing the centre placed their order for Ryno chairs along with white Cumulus dining tables. These stylish modern tables have heavy duty steel pedestal bases which provide excellent strength and stability. Magna sofas with additional reinforcement were selected to provide long-lasting comfort in lounge areas, colour coded to match the Ryno chairs. These sofas have fixed seat and back cushions which reduce stashing opportunities and keep them looking neat at all times.
To help the unit-by-unit refurbishment run smoothly, we were able to provide a roll-out delivery schedule which allowed the team at Medway to project manage the change process much more effectively.
