    What Are Bubble Tubes?

    When it comes to a sensory environment, then a whole host of apparatus is needed in order to create an area that is stimulating or calming (depending on the individual requirements of the user). One of the items found in many of these sensory rooms and environments is a bubble tube. Continue reading

  • The Benefits Of A Sensory Room

    What Is A Sensory Room?

    A Sensory Room, is a specially designed room which combines a range of stimuli to help individuals develop and engage their senses. These can include lights, colours, sounds, sensory soft play objects, aromas all within a safe environment that allows the person using it to explore and interact without risk. Continue reading

  • Emptying your Bubble Tube

    One of the most frequent questions we get asked is; “How often should I replace the water in my bubble tube?” We suggest the water is changed at the end of every term or 8 weeks. The easiest way to empty a bubble tube is by using a bubble tube emptying kit. The kit consists of two pieces, a hose and a pump. The pump can be a foot pump which you press repeatedly with your foot or a drill pump which fits onto the front of a battery powered drill. Put simply, you attach the hose to either side of the pump you have. Then put one end of the hose into the bubble tube and the other end into a sink or drain and start pumping. You can find Bubble Tube emptying kits with or without a foot pump on our website.

  • Bubble Tube Bacteria

    You can slow down the build up of bacteria in a bubble tube by adding a biocide product to the water on a monthly basis. We suggest using a product called BCB. It’s a specially designed formula which is gentle on the acrylic tube and doesn’t scratch or cloud it. It is not advisable to use sterilising tablets, as this could damage the inside of the tube over time. You can find BCB Fluid for sale on our website by clicking on this link: bubble tube bcb fluid

  • Cleaning Sensory Mirrors

    Another favourite question we are asked is “How do I clean the mirrors in my sensory room?” The quick answer is CAREFULLY! Acrylic mirrors, whilst extremely safe as they are very difficult to break, are also hard to clean. They scratch easily so caution is advised when cleaning. Use a soft, clean cloth and a little elbow grease to start with.  If you do need to use a detergent, try Windolene or similar. Try a small amount on part of the mirror which is not seen first.

  • Fibre Optic Maintenance

    Fibre optics can be mesmerising and extremely tactile. As such, they are handled a lot and will need cleaning regularly to ensure they are safe and free from bacteria. We suggest cleaning them weekly, however you may need to do this more often depending on the users. It’s also a good idea to have some antiseptic wipes nearby for quick cleaning when needed.

  • Changing Sensory Room Lamps

    If you’re lucky enough to have a new sensory room, chances are there aren’t a lot of lamps to change as most new products are LED driven. However for those products that do need periodic lamp changes, here are a few tips:
    1. Switch the unit off and leave the lamp to cool for at least 20 minutes.
    2. Don’t touch the ‘bulb’ part of the lamp. Touching the bulb part transfers grease from your fingers onto the unit, thereby creating a hotspot. When the lamp is switched on it will heat this area quickly and the lamp is more likely to blow sooner.
    3. When you are taking a cover off a product to change the lamp, make a note of its orientation. Some products have covers which must be replaced in the same direction to ensure a steady air flow over the lamp.
    4. Whilst you’re changing the lamp, you may want to do a little maintenance. If the unit has a fan, give it a hoover. Cleaning the fan means that more air will pass through and over the lamp, therefore keeping it cooler and prolonging its life.
    5. Carefully clean the lens. Use a soft cloth and carefully clean the lens if the unit has one. You will be amazed at the results!
