The Doorway Floor Strips are designed to help prevent some people with dementia from entering or leaving a room. Some people with dementia will not pass a black area on the floor.
The product is in a pack containing the following components, and you can use whichever fixing method is suitable for your floor surface:
- 3 thin black non-slip rubber strips, each 90cm / 35.5″ long
- 3 lengths of sticky-backed hook & loop tape for fixing to carpet floors
- 3 lengths of double sides sticky dots for fixing to hard floor surfaces such as wood or tiles
Special sizes can be made on request.
Because dementia care is a complex area, we cannot guarantee this product will work for everyone.
The Doorway Floor Strips product may be considered a form of restraint, so seek approval if necessary.
