HELLINGLY CENTRE, SUSSEX PARTNERHSIP NHS TRUST

Sussex Partnership approached us after a ward refurbishment caused them significant issues with floor springs.  Doors were either slamming or not shutting fully, creating both a security risk and unnecessary distress among service users.  They were keen to find a door closer specifically designed for the challenging Mental Health environment.  

 

Offering a robust and discrete door closer

Offering a robust and discrete door closer 

To ensure they got a closer that worked first time, they chose our concealed door closer.  Fitted to the frame head, and with an adjustable power rating and closing speed, it’s the ultimate concealed door closer.

After carrying out Department of Health medium secure abuse tests and browsing our online test database, Sussex Partnership were confident it was the right solution too.

Enhancing security and ensuring a peaceful ward environment 

To meet their needs, they used our standard mechanical closer on bedroom doors for self-closing at a controlled speed.  And on corridor doors, they chose our electro-magnetic (EMAG) hold-open option, which created more open spaces while maintaining free compartments.

The result? Safe and robust door closers that enhanced security and ensured a peaceful ward environment.

Enhancing security and ensuring a peaceful ward environment

"The door closers are robust, safe and meet our requirements perfectly.  Our own rigorous testing, as well as Safehinge's own test evidence, gave us complete confidence in the durability and usability of the product'.
