Multi-Sensory Rooms

As all our rooms are bespoke and unique, our design teams motto is: 


“The answer is yes – now what’s the question!”

Softplay Sensory Rooms

Softplay is Ireland’s premier manufacturer of Multi Sensory Rooms with a reputation for quality, innovative designs and well crafted rooms. Softplay Sensory Rooms are the recognised experts in Sensory solutions, providing sensory rooms, our award winning Sensory Pod calming space, as well as smaller sensory products and toys. We are number one for quality because, as a medical company, our materials and finish are completed to healthcare rather than educational standards.

We pride ourselves in only using the best quality materials in our rooms, which provide a much higher and long-lasting finish. Our vinyl coverings are unique, as they are engineered for healthcare environments, which ensures they’re easy to clean, anti-bacterial/anti-fungal, flame retardant, abrasion resistant and smooth to touch. We also have the widest and most vibrant colour range, which deliver unique rooms every time, without creases and that do not lose strength over time.

Our project team, led by Robert Byrne, will listen to your needs and deliver a unique design, made by our highly skilled craftsmen, with free CAD designs and a professional install team that will ensure 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Quality Fabrics with Vibrant Colours

All our padded surfaces, for wall panels, plinths, floor mats and ball pools are covered with our quality range of soft-to-touch vinyl fabrics.

Offered in the widest range of vibrant colours, we supply all our panels and plinths in stylish single or two-tone colour designs.

Ideal for both educational and healthcare environments, as they’re covered with an easy to clean material with an antibacterial/anti-fungal treatment which is now more important in these Covid times. 

All our materials are CE approved, flame retardant, anti-abrasion, wrinkle/crease proof when applied, which ensures a smooth and long wearing surface.

Do Low Prices = Poor Quality?

Benjamin Franklin said that “the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten”. 

We only use healthcare approved vinyls and foams. We don’t use PVC vinyl which is hard to touch and can crack and wrinkle over time.

We never use Ethafoam as it has harmful components and is also hard to touch. 
Instead, we use 6lb Recon Foam that is softer, fire retardant without the potentially harmful properties.

Free CAD Design Plans

Softplay has invested in the most up-to-date CAD design software, so that we can understand your needs and quickly transfer those ideas to provide a unique CAD design plan of your project.

We will provide you with a 3D plan what of your finished room will look like, showing the panels, plinths with live bubble tubes, all the actual dimensions of your room.

Once agreed, we’ll then generate an itemised quote for you to consider and hopefully, proceed.

Why Softplay Multi Sensory Rooms?

Schools, Hospitals and Public buildings should be spaces that feel comfortable, safe and designed to cater to all people, especially for those who struggle with processing environmental stimuli. A Multi-Sensory, or calming room, provides that safe, relaxing and comfortable space for all. 

A Multi-sensory room is designed to stimulate and soothe all the senses, help build key development skills, such as cause and effect, hand-eye coordination as well as fine motor skills. They are immersive environments supplied with specialist sensory equipment to promote stimuli and developmental interactions.

A Multi-Sensory room can also provide a calming and relaxing environment designed to reduce the likelihood of meltdowns and panic attacks. In this scenario the users are looking to withdraw and calm down to avert an escalation of their anxieties.

Our project team can design a Multi-Sensory room to suit the requirements of special needs and mainstream schools, third level institution as well as Libraries and public buildings. Feel free to contact us for your own bespoke needs.

Swords ETNS Testimonial

To Robert and all at The Sensory Pod,

Thank you all so much for the amazing work completed for our school. You have tailored everything perfectly to our needs from the amazing Sensory Room to the gorgeous Sensory area in our stairwell. From start to finish you have listened to our needs and provided quality, high standard materials as well as providing us with much needed advice and support in the initial stages. 

The service you provide is second to none, bespoke features and materials at a fraction of the cost that other companies are charging. I cannot recommend you and your team highly enough. The finished product is everything we have wished for and more.

Not only have you provided us with two fantastic sensory spaces in our school but you have been part of the team in Swords ETNS with your sound advice and shared vision for the areas. This is something unique that the Sensory Pod offers and as a result makes the product all the more special for each individual school. 

I cannot thank you enough, 

Karl, Staff, Board of Management and pupils of Swords ETNS
