At tlc4schools we know that creating a sensory room from scratch or developing an
existing resource can be a daunting task.
We can help you identify your requirements, assess your environment and future plans
and criteria to arrive at a fully considered proposal of your needs. Equipped with
this information and having an good understanding of the options available to you
we can then concentrate on the design of the room and equipment selection.
We will inform you of the latest developments in products and equipment and explain
in simple terms how the new technology can benefit you and your users.
We can produce computer generated images, plans and animations to help you visualise
and realise how your new sensory environment may look and work.
We can visit you and discuss your needs and requirements and match these to the most
suitable products and equipment available.
Carry out a survey of your sensory room or site and offer suggestions about what
is possible, ideas of layout and equipment together with an overview of the existing
and any new infrastructure that may be required.
Whether you have a clear idea of your requirements or need help to define it we will
work closely with you to achieve the best solution in terms of design, quality, ease
of use and function.
As all of our projects are bespoke to suit your individual needs, the timescale for
realising your project will vary on a few things... the size of the project, the
level of custom items, the degree of infrastructure work required (power/electrics,
radiator boxing, building work and alterations etc). Once these items have been finalised
then we can plan an installation for our engineers to deliver and fit-out your new
sensory system. Our sensory bundles and smaller projects will have a shorter lead
The cost of a project is always a fundamental aspect to consider from the outset.
This will influence the design, layout and selection of equipment together with planning
for future additions and upgrades.
We understand that funds can be hard to come by at the best of times and that future
funding can allow the initial concept to be realised. For this reason we don’t just
look at the current situation - we take a longer term view to ensure that your project
can be efficiently developed in phases and upgraded as funds and new technology allow.
We can create a meaningful solution for most budgets.
Installation, Training & Support
Installation and set-up is carried out by our own engineers and work is scheduled
in to ensure minimum disruption to your environment and establishment wherever possible.
We can provide a total solution in terms of installation & infrastructure including
such items as electrical installations, floor coverings, block-out window blinds
& coverings, air conditioning (heating & cooling). We also work with hoist manufacturers
and installers to ensure synergy between our designs, equipment and the practical
requirements of accessibility into and around these environments.

Dark Room and U/V
Dark rooms provide a controlled environment in which to focus on visual acuity and
visual development work. It is important to be able to control which effects are
visible and the need for good block-out on any windows and doors is essential to
allow users to focus on a specific task or activity without distractions. The Ultra
Violet lighting often found in these rooms makes specific reactive objects , toys
and materials glow producing a highly contrasting scene to work with. We design
and produce a range of wall panels, ceiling panels and floor and wall finishes which
are suited to visual work in these environments. Our range of U/V toys and equipment
compliment the skills and development being undertaken in dark rooms. For more information
and to discuss your project please call or email us.
Soft Play & Padded Environments
We take time and effort to make sure that your new Soft Play environment is designed
to suit your needs and requirements. A wide range of standard and new features are
available including bespoke items and in-built interactivity. Whether you are looking
for physical play, cause and effect, users to develop key skills such as balance
and co-ordination, an area to let of steam and test boundaries, vestibular input,
tumble/movement activities and a treatment/intervention space for therapy we can
help. Whatever your priority is for the functions of this type of room we can help
you create an appropriate space which has been considered and made for that purpose.
Sensory Room Designs
We design all our projects based around your individual needs, your budget and whether
you need to develop a sensory resource in stages.
Designs can progress through a series of iterations until a fully considered and
detailed outcome can be realised. Once we have developed a design that you are happy
with we can then look at how to make it reality.

Hydrotherapy Pools, Splash Pools, Swimming Pools, Shower Rooms and Bathrooms
Whether you have a large hydrotherapy pool or a domestic bathroom, we can add the
right equipment to create meaningful and appropriate sensory effects for your sensory
environments. Our systems range from basic light and colour projection through to
more coordinated interaction and programmed sequences of moving light, colour and
sound both above and in the water.
- Encourage movement within the water
- Effects and music used for distraction to encourage anxious students to enjoy the
- Makes for a fun and engaging atmosphere and sensory environment
- Make selections and choices through water based wireless switches
- Create a themed experience as an extension of class based curriculum work
Whether your water based sensory environment requires Extra Low Voltage Items due
to height and distance limitations or not, we can select and install the appropriate
equipment to suit your specific needs and space.

We offer a range of solutions to help you keep your new sensory room working as it
was intended. We also cater for existing and older sensory rooms, please contact
us to discuss how we can help you with your sensory room with our maintenance contracts
and service visits.
Our new Sensory Trolley is feature packed with the latest in LED technology providing
years of maintenance free use and enjoyment.
This sturdy unit is the perfect solution where sensory tools and resources need to
be brought to the user and to change an ordinary environment into a special one.
The trolley will fit through standard doors and into lifts* fitted with four lockable
castors and a contoured handle to make manoeuvrability and use both safe and secure.
Contact us to discuss your own requirements as these units are made available by
us for use by those with specific requirements.
Portable equipment is ideal where space is at a premium or where no room can be dedicated
for sensory provision. The advantages of our portable kits is that they can be accessed
around a school or centre. Some of the smaller kits are suited for loan to parents
for use at home with their children.
