OUR DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN

Our load release en-suite door, which has recently been further improved based on customer feedback, simply detaches when a weight of 3kg or more is applied.
After rigorous testing and more than 4000 supplied worldwide, with no reported suicides, it’s the safest option for private bathroom doors within inpatient mental health environments.
But we don’t stop at physical safety. The saloon-style allows for head and feet checks during observations, considering patients’ privacy and dignity. Whilst the variety of print designs help to facilitate therapeutic and healing environments.
Thanks to our unique 5-year robustness guarantee, patients and clinical teams can now access all of the benefits of this innovative en-suite door while ensuring great value for money.
The load release door simply detaches from the pivots if a weight of 3kg or more is applied - disrupting the ligature attempt.
The leaves provide a partial visual screen, enabling clinical staff to carry out a quick head and feet check, without encroaching on patients' privacy or dignity.
The anti-ligature magnetic pivots can be installed on an existing door frame in under 60 minutes - making it equally suitable for new builds or as a retrofit solution.
The top and bottom magnets located in the frame cause nibs to self-locate into place and offer superior hold, minimizing unwanted detachments and removing the need to bend down if the leaves do need to be reattached
We're all greatly affected by our surroundings. They can have a profound impact on our mood, thoughts and feelings.
This is heightened in a mental health inpatient setting because people are going through a vulnerable time, and every detail of the built environment can have an impact.
That's why our en-suite leaves are designed in a variety of plain colours and prints - so that the right design can be chosen to complement the environment.
Is it fire tested? Yes. It passes both BS EN 597 and BS EN 1021 match flame equivalent.
It it water resistant? Yes. The outer PVC material is splash resistant, and the doors' edges are bonded together to protect the internal foam.
Does it pass infection control? Yes. It scored highly, given the PVC leaves can be easily wiped clean, and there are no stitched edges which can be a significant infection risk.
A 5-year robustness guarantee now also protects the anti-ligature en-suite door.
How does it work?
If the door becomes broken (for any reason, including patient damage) in the first five years of use, we will exchange it at no extra cost.
Thanks to this unique offering, you can now enjoy all benefits of our innovative anti-ligature en-suite door while ensuring the best value for money for your organisation in the long run.
We showcased all three designs and asked visitors at the event to vote for their favourite. Due to popular demand, we took forward two of the three designs to become part of our standard range!
RDaSH opted for our load release En-suite doors as they refurbished the Skelbrooke ward. Detaching at a weight of 8kg, they selected our staff-only reset option to disrupt ligature learning and inform their clinical risk assessment.
Our En-suite doors were chosen for the Galaxy Ward at The Coburn Centre - a 12-bed CAMHS unit providing intensive care for 12 to 18 year olds. East London NHS saw our En-suite as the only solution to balance safety, privacy and dignity for young people.
The bedrooms at The Junipers PICU, Wonford House were designed with patients in mind. Our En-suite doors were selected in pale green an beach scene to provide a therapeutic setting with enhanced patient privacy and dignity.
