Padded Rooms



Quiet rooms, also known as calming rooms, de-escalation rooms, cool down rooms or seclusion rooms, are used to create an environment completely removed from outside distractions, facilitating extreme relaxation and/or contemplation within a safe environment. These rooms are typically equipped with floor and wall padding and can also involve impact-absorbing floor tiles and other safety features. We also design custom padding for sensory rooms, which in some cases involve more complex design features, such as softplay equipment, interactive programming, lighting, audio, etc.

These specifically designed rooms are found in:

  • Hospitals
  • Health Care Facilities
  • Retirement & Seniors' Residences
  • Respite Centres
  • Daycare Centres
  • Educational Facilities
  • Penitentiaries and other Remand Facilities

For application in Quiet Rooms, Sport Systems uses padding that meets NBC requirements of interior finishes requiring a pass of the CAN/ULC-S102 of the padding as AN ASSEMBLY. Most vendors have fire-rated vinyl, but their entire pad as an assembly might not pass this test. Make sure to enquire about this important distinction when purchasing custom padding for Quiet Rooms.

Each facility has different requirements, layouts and room designs. Our in-house design team can accommodate any request with our extensive experience and flexibility with custom padding applications.
