ANTI-LIGATURE EN-SUITE DOOR FOR MENTAL HEALTH

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.

NO-KNOWN LIGATURE POINTS 

The load release door simply detaches from the pivots if a weight of 3kg or more is applied - disrupting the ligature attempt.

DESIGNED WITH RECOVERY IN MIND

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.

MEETS PRACTICAL NEEDS OF A WARD

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.

SELF-LOCATING DESIGN

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

Therapeutic environment

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.

Common questions

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.

Hospital Rooms collaboration

At Design in Mental Health 2021, we launched our partnership with arts & mental health charity Hospital Rooms to help create spaces that facilitate hope and healing.
 
Working with the team at Hospital Rooms, we selected three of their original artworks already installed within inpatient mental health facilities across the UK to print onto our award-winning en-suite door.


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!
