Broadleaves Extra Care Case Study

Improving safety and style at a Newark care home

Elevating Living Spaces: SMART Balustrades at Broadleaves Extra Care, Newark

Project Overview

The Broadleaves Extra Care facility aimed to create a welcoming and secure environment for its residents. This project emphasised the importance of safety and aesthetics throughout the facility. SMART Balustrades contributed by providing a variety of balustrades and handrail solutions that seamlessly integrated with the design of the living spaces.


The primary challenge was to ensure the safety and aesthetics of the living spaces, both indoors and outdoors. The facility needed balustrades for balconies, handrails for corridors, and balustrades for stairs and the communal terrace. Each of these elements had to blend with the facility’s overall design and provide safety for residents.
