Designed with change in mind
The perfect healthcare space today will not be perfect tomorrow. Healthcare organisations face an ongoing challenge in managing their facilities: while treatment and care processes continually evolve, many healthcare spaces are not designed to adapt.
Compass helps navigate change. A modular system of interchangeable components for hospital and outpatient facilities, Compass is used to create applications for patient rooms, examination rooms, caregiver work areas and other clinical spaces.
Designed for change. Compass components are easily assembled, removed, rearranged and refreshed. Storage can be quickly relocated; headwall utilities can be easily accessed, added or modified; and damaged product can be easily replaced without demolition. The result is unmatched flexibility.
Designed for healthcare
Tiles and components are wrapped in Durawrap, a 99.9%-PVC-free material that requires no edge banding, resulting in a seamless, cleanable and durable surface. A shingled seam between tiles and components prevents spills from seeping into gaps and eliminates the spread of infection. Compass meets the rigorous cleaning requirements of healthcare environments.
The modular design of Compass allows nurses and other clinical staff to easily make real-time changes to the patient room environment, in response to changes in supply storage, patient acuity or EMR introduction.
Considerate of all
The overall experience of a Compass environment: a space that’s well designed, intuitively organised and inherently satisfying for everyone who uses it.
Aesthetics were an important design consideration. Architects and designers can easily execute their design vision. Compass is available in a range of finishes that integrates into traditional and contemporary settings.
Compass accommodates the utility needs of healthcare environments. Its intelligent infrastructure manages utilities, whether pre-piped/pre-wired, stubbed out or chased from the ceiling.
The infrastructure was engineered to accommodate imperfections in construction, by allowing the system to be levelled so that when walls are not flat or plumb, the final solution looks perfect.
Intelligent design and efficient installation make the purchase price affordable. Unmatched flexibility minimises life-cycle costs and delivers great value over time.
To manage inevitable damage and wear-and-tear, Compass’ modular design and rail system make it easy to swap out modules, whether it’s a single tile or an entire wall.
The surface edge, with its radius and back cut, prevents spilled fluids from seeping into drawers and cabinets.
Seamless wrapped surfaces and overlapping tiles minimise the potential for liquids to seep into unseen areas and help to control the spread of infection.
The Compass sink’s sloping sides, splash guard, offset drain and custom tap help to control the spread of infection.
Compass components mount off the ground, allowing floors to be swept underneath. Tiles can be easily removed for cleaning.
