Washrooms for mental health spaces at DIMH

Hygipod Safe available in over 45 colours and finishes


Last week, our team had the opportunity to exhibit our innovative products, including Hygipod Safe, Hygipod Tough, and Hygidoor, at the Design in Mental Health exhibition in Manchester Central. It was a great event that allowed us to connect with both existing and new customers.


At our Trovex, our goal is to enable healthcare professionals, whether they are part of the estates team, architects, or construction teams, to create safer environments for the care of vulnerable individuals. We believe that these environments should not only be safe and functional but also kind.

In this blog post, we will explore the features of our Hygipod Safe, which is designed to create safe and functional washrooms for mental health facilities.


Enhanced safety features

The Hygipod Safe is equipped with a range of enhanced safety features that make it ideal for mental health facilities.

One of the key safety features is the hinged and lockable front-facing flush finishing access doors. These doors provide secure access for maintenance teams to access plumbing.

Additionally, the Hygipod Safe features reinforced door surrounds for impact resistance. This helps to protect the pipework and minimise the potential for access behind the platform.

These safety features are essential in creating a secure and protected environment for vulnerable individuals.

Robust construction

Constructed from Hygiboard, a material created by Trovex specifically for use in healthcare environments, the Hygipod Safe is not only robust but also able to withstand significant impacts. This durable material ensures that the washroom facilities remain resilient and long-lasting in the demanding environment of mental health facilities.

Furthermore, the Hygipod Safe is designed to feature reduced ligature sanitaryware effectively, providing a safe and secure environment for individuals. To enhance the stability and security of the sanitaryware, additional steel plating is strategically added where necessary, offering extra assurance.

Functional design elements

The unique design of the Hygipod Safe allows for easy installation and maintenance. Its modular construction enables quick and efficient assembly, saving time and resources for healthcare professionals. The platform is delivered to site pre-plumbed with sanitaryware such as basins installed.

Furthermore, the Hygipod Safe is available in various configurations, including DOC M packages. This ensures that it can be tailored to meet the specific needs and requirements of different mental health facilities.

With its functional design, the Hygipod Safe offers convenience and flexibility for both healthcare professionals and individuals using the washroom.

Hygienic Finish

Maintaining a high level of hygiene is crucial in mental health facilities, and the Hygipod Safe is designed with this in mind.

The Hygipod Safe is finished in hygienic PVC finish that is easy to clean and disinfect. This helps to prevent the spread of infections and ensures a safe and hygienic environment for individuals using the washroom.

The hygienic finish of the Hygipod Safe not only promotes cleanliness but also contributes to the overall well-being of individuals in mental health facilities. Available in over 45 colours and finishes, there will be a colour to meet the needs of your project.

Customisation OptionsHygipod Safe Option 3

We understand that every mental health facility has unique requirements, and that's why the Hygipod Safe offers customisation options.

Our range of Hygipod Safe products can be tailored to meet specific needs, ensuring that the washroom facilities align with the overall design and functionality of the facility.

Whether it's the size, layout, or additional features, our team can work closely with healthcare professionals to create customised solutions that address their specific needs.

The customisation options of the Hygipod Safe allow for greater flexibility and personalisation in mental health facility design.

Design in Mental Health

The Design in Mental Health exhibition provided us with a platform to showcase our products and contribute to the conversation around mental health facility design.

By creating safer environments through our range of mental health products, we aim to support healthcare professionals in their mission to provide the best care for vulnerable individuals.

We are committed to continuously innovating and improving our products to meet the evolving needs of mental health facilities and contribute to the well-being of individuals in these settings.

The Design in Mental Health exhibition was a successful event that allowed us to connect with professionals in the field and further our mission of creating safe, functional, and kind environments for the care of vulnerable people.
