Seclusion Rooms
Protective Wall and Floor Padding for "Quiet Rooms" and "Time-Out Rooms"

    Seclusion Rooms - also known as "Time-Out Rooms" and also known as "Quiet Rooms," are a necessary part of facilities where organizations interface with the public and where someplace safe and secure is needed when an individual requires temporary confinement to protect them from doing harm to others and or to themselves. It is not a pleasant thing to have to consider, but if and when it becomes necessary, it is important that the right preparations have been made in order that such individuals will be well cared for and that they will not be able to harm themsleves while, at the same time being securely secluded from others who they might try to harm.

The Mat King Seclusion Rooms are equipped with three basic elements that provide just the right environment for this very important facility: Safety Wall Padding, Safety Floor Padding and a Unifying Top Cover to for the Safety Floor Padding to help preserve its sanitary condition and to make it easier to clean and maintain if and when the floor padding should become fouled in some way. All the materails used to fabricate the various elements of The Mat King Seclusion Rooms meet Fire Retardant Codes.

Secusion Rooms are often included in Hospitals, Health Care Facilities, Retirement and Senior Citizen Residences, Respite Centers, Daycare Centers, Educational Facilities and Penitentiaries and other Remand Facilities.

Safety Wall Padding
The Mat King Seclusion Room Safety Wall Padding is, perhaps, the most visable of the components that make up the Seclusion Room when looking into one. Safety Wall Padding units are vinyl clad foam filled panels adhered to wooden backings which get secured to the walls of the Seclusion Room with the use of top and bottom nailer strips. The wall pads, which are 6 feet tall and usually 2 feet in width, are mounted 6 inches above the floor to a height of six and a half feet overall, which is more than sufficient for protecting a child or an adult from hurting themselves should they try smashing themselves up against the walls of the room. The door jams get covered as well with protective padding. An observation window can be padded around so that those in charge can keep an eye on the person in need of this type of protection.

The Safety Wall Padding is designed to cushion the user from potential damage. It is is made of 1-1/2 inch thick Polyfoam padding, which is completely coverd with perhaps the leading premium coated vinyl cover material on the market. It is made with a high grade leather-like finish and treated to meet NFPA-701 and CSFM while achieving a Class A rating for ASTM-E-84 . This covering is a muti-purpose product, which is CPSIA certified (6P), has no detection of DnHP (7P), and has less than 100 ppm lead, which assures that it is safe for use with children. Aditionally, this cover material is treated with UV inhibitors and anti-mildew elements to enable it to withstand adverse weather conditions. The Safety Wall Padding panels are equipped with a 1 inch wide lip on the top and on the bottom for securing the panels to the walls of the room. The wood backer board is 7/16 of an inch thick, which makes the over all thickness of the Saftey Wall Padding panel a full 2 inches over all.

Safety Wall Padding - Installation Guidelines

Safety Floor Padding
The Mat King Seclusion Room floor is   covered completly with vinyl clad foam based folding mats that are filled with 2 inch thick Polyfoam and equipped with Velcro connectors to keep the mats together in an uninterupted protection against inadvertant falling or intentional thrashing about by a person in need of a safe place to stay. On the underside of the entire perimiter of the floor matting layout is a heavy duty Marine Velcro securing component that is used to anchor the Unifying Top Cover to the Floor Padding, which makes it almost impossible for a person to dislodge the elements of the Safety Floor Padding and, when and if there should there ever be a situation where cleaning of the surface of the floor padding be required, the Unifying Cover for the Safety Floor Padding will make the process much quicker and much easier than if one had to deal with a number of individual mats and with what ever debris might have spread to the underside of the mats.The Mat King Safety Floor Padding equipped with its Unifying Cover gives "messy stuff" almost no place to hide.

Unifying Top Cover for Safety Floor Padding
The Safety Floor Padding is comprised of vinyl covered foam folding mats with Velcro connectors to help form a contiguous floor covering that will provide foam protection in the event that the inhabitant should fall or otherwise use the floor to inflict harm on them self. To make the maintenance of the safety floor padding easier and to dissuade inhabitants from trying to dislodge one pad from another, a Unifying Top Cover for the Safety Floor Padding is supplied such that it hyper extends the perimeter of the Safety Floor Padding so it can be tucked underneath and anchored to the under side of the Safety Floor Padding where a Heavy Duty or Marine Velcro anchorage has been factory installed. The following drawing demonstrates the way the Unifying Top Cover for Floor Padding is deployed:
