Our range of anti-ligature window handles quickly and efficiently improves window security within mental health environments. As a great alternative to old window handles, they give patients the perfect balance of access and security. Our in-house experts help designers, and clinical teams choose suitable options for every project.
Replacing an old window handle with one from our anti-ligature range will provide a range of benefits:
Modern Mental Health units are often older buildings adapted from previous use, so window safety products must be flexible enough to suit every window style, from traditional windows to contemporary tilt-and-turns, in timber, aluminium and PVCu.
In various scenarios, new window costs could often overwhelm already stretched mental health facilities' budgets - replacing existing window handles is a much more cost-effective alternative. By choosing Safehinge Primera handles, you can eliminate ligature points and improve window safety simultaneously without breaking the budget.
As well as offering anti-tamper fixings, rounded corners and chamfered-edged backplates, our window handles are robust and designed to withstand day-to-day use. Manufactured from die-cast zinc and solid steel plate, they're finished in satin stainless steel and can also be RAL powder-coated to match any design scheme.
Our flexible range includes locking window handles for all levels of access and security – allowing designers and clinical teams to choose the perfect level of window fittings for each project.
Balancing a therapeutic and homely environment with window safety poses unique challenges in Mental Health units. Open windows provide an opportunity to escape, throw objects, or pass contraband. Yet permanently closed windows limit fresh air, essential to aiding recovery within mental health environments. Our window restrictors are a quick and easy way to improve window safety in any Mental Health facility.
At Safehinge Primera, everything we do is designed to enhance recovery for the patient and make lives safer. Our products are rigorously tried and tested to withstand the most extreme abuse. Because if this, we are the unrivalled experts in door components for Mental Health, providing superior solutions for challenging environments. Choose from a wide range of products that can significantly improve ligature safety on doors at a low cost.
Our anti-ligature en-suite bathroom door provides superior ligature safety while maintaining patients’ privacy and dignity. Each door leaf detaches when a weight of 3kgs or more is applied - disrupting ligature attempts and keeping people safe at vulnerable times. The anti-ligature magnetic pivot can be installed on an existing door frame in under 60 minutes - making it equally suitable for new builds or as a retrofit solution.
