Our award-winning range of anti-barricade doorset solutions and a wide range of ligature-resistant products were designed by an in-house team of engineers specializing in designing for challenging Behavioral Health environments.
We have created the world’s first and only full-door ligature alarm system for behavioral health environments, which detects ligature attempts across the entire door.
53% of suicides within inpatient behavioral health environments involved a door.
Our anti-barricade door sets include a wireless full-door alarm. We’ve turned the entire door into a weighing scale that detects vertical loads over 11 pounds.
A secure door that resists ligature has been created through collaboration with design specialists and medical professionals from various parts of North America.
Our ligature-resistant bathroom door recently became the first to be approved by the behavioral health design guide trifecta:
Specifically designed for behavioral health patient bathrooms, our solution can promote safety within behavioral health hospital rooms while also preserving the privacy and dignity of patients during their journey toward recovery.
We have a wide range of doors with different technical and aesthetic options for clients to select, discovering the perfect door for their project and scenario. Review our wide selection of doors and find the best option using a new Safehinge Primera door set configurator interactive tool.
Both our Bedroom and Bathroom doors are listed by the gold standard for behavioral health design standards, OMH-NY Patient Safety Standards, Materials and Systems Guidelines.
