Our award-winning range of anti-barricade doorset solutions and a wide range of anti-ligature products were designed by an in-house team of engineers specialising in designing for challenging Mental Health environments.
We have created the world’s first and only full-door ligature alarm system for mental health environments which detects ligature attempts across the entire door.
49% of inpatient suicides within mental health facilities occur using the door or door hardware.
Our anti-barricade door sets include a wireless full-door alarm. We’ve turned the entire door into a weighing scale which detects vertical loads over 5kg.
Working within mental health environments to reduce ligature risk, we replace outdated uPVC window handles and provide new robust and durable window solutions.
Replacing existing window handles is more cost-effective, making this a suitable option for NHS Trusts - our window solutions provide patients' freedom and empower clinicians and nurses.

Working with staff within mental health facilities, patients need safe, familiar fixtures and fittings that are anti-ligature, therefore minimising the risk of suicide.
Our load-release fittings look like those you would find in your bathroom at home. This restores dignity and creates a familiar and comfortable environment to aid recovery.

Finger guards for doors in schools, designed for high-traffic areas, also work great in leisure centres, soft play centres, commercial spaces (restaurants/cinemas), and hospitals – anywhere where children's fingers are at risk of being trapped or injured.
Working with public and private schools and other environments where children’s little fingers are at risk of being trapped in a door; our aluminium finger guards guarantee that children’s fingers are safe from harm.
A finger protector is essential for school staff and parents alike. Our finger guards provide long-term financial benefits versus plastic finger guards - which continuously crack, split and need to be replaced.
