Healthcare Seating Refurbishment

Chairs in hospitals, treatment couches, specialist medical chairs, and seating in doctor’s surgeries are in constant use and over time get worn, torn or damaged. Chairs covered in woven fabric may no longer meet the latest hygiene or cleaning requirements and be non-compliant. With increased pressure on budgets and more awareness on environmental issues; buying expensive new replacements may not be an option.

Waldron professional healthcare seating refurbishment services tick all the boxes. Your existing seating can be recovered or repaired to healthcare standards at a fraction of the cost of buying new replacements, as well as being environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Even if you staff, patients and visitors can’t tell the difference between your refurbished seating or new, your budget will.

Healthcare Seating Refurbishment

In most cases all that is required is a simple recover in approved vinyl or fabric to upgrade your healthcare seating. Refurbishments are all carried out to the same contract standards while using the same quality healthcare vinyl and fabric as used by reputable UK healthcare chair manufacturers.

The vinyl and fabric we use in our healthcare seating refurbishment have been tested to meet the strict durability, fire and fluid resistance standards that are required. Making them suitable for contract use in public and private healthcare organisations. We are able to provide test certificates to confirm this for your reassurance and records.

Waldron has over 30 years of experience in providing healthcare seating refurbishment services to healthcare organisations just like yours. We are able to guide you through the various vinyl and fabric options that we have available and how they relate to the latest cleaning and hygiene requirements to ensure your seating is compliant.

Each year Waldron recovers thousands of different healthcare seating. In doctor’s surgeries, non-clinical or residential care where aesthetics are just as important as infection control, we can supply a wide range of contemporary healthcare infection control materials to breathe new life into your healthcare seating.

Healthcare Chair Repair

Staff seating can also be repaired and broken or damaged components replaced. We hold stocks of popular office chair components including arm pads, mechanisms, gas pistons, bases and castors. Components for specialist medical healthcare chair repairs can be quoted on an order by order basis.

Minimal Disruption

All work is carried out on Waldron premises in order to eliminate dust, odour, air and noise pollution and cause minimal disruption to you and your patients’ day. Additionally on our premises we have all the skilled resources, tools and equipment to safely and professionally carry out all types of healthcare chair repairs. Collection and delivery are included in the price that you will be quoted.

Healthcare facilities are in constant use and cannot manage without seating so we are happy to provide you with our generic visitor or swivel chair loan seating free of charge whilst your healthcare seating is being refurbished. Healthcare loan seating is already covered in durable and easy to clean healthcare fabric that meets compliance regulations. However, these chairs are subject to availability so reserve yours as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

".......I am sitting proudly on my newly covered sofa. It looks very smart."

C.B. from M. Medical Centre

"............before "finding" Waldron, I had received some very negative responses from several other upholstery firms.......... ..........from the time Waldron was recommended to me I received helpful, sympathetic and effective advice, from my initial enquiry, with no "pushy" sales pressure at any time.......... Given the complex work involved, and choice of strong material, and the high quality of personal service I thought your charges were extremely reasonable. Certainly infinitely cheaper than having to completely replace an essential chair. I was delighted with the work done. The upholstery looks to have been done to a very high standard, on what as I have mentioned was quite a challenging chair to work on. The fabric looks superb, and in fact, the chair looks better than it did before I am so pleased that I have found Waldron's and will not hesitate to recommend your Company to anyone I have contact with who might be seeking a similar service."

Back Shop Customer

".......We have been very impressed with your service. Both the quality of the workmanship and your coutesy has made it a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for a beautifully refurbished chair Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 ......... I am writing to confirm just how pleased we have been with the work you have done for us recently. The recovered chairs, apart from now is exactly the colour we wanted, look as good as new and have made the surgery look the way we want it to look. Many, many thanks - we will be recommending you whenever the opportunity arises."
