Window restrictors that balance a therapeutic environment with window safety help address the challenges that staff at most mental health units face.
Fresh air and views of the outdoors are essential to recovery but wide opened windows pose unique safety concerns to Mental Health patients. We designed our window safety restrictors to address specific Mental Health requirements, which is why they are robust and safe yet offer flexibility and maximised airflow. Our made-to-measure three-part restrictors are designed to meet specific requirements in higher-risk environments, while our two-part restrictors are suitable for low-risk situations.
Here are some of the benefits of our Anti-Ligature Window Restrictors:
Windows in existing buildings are often identified as a risk. So our retrofit restrictors deliver appropriate window security levels without replacing the window itself - reducing costs and minimising patient disruption.
Within new builds, designing out risks with sliding windows is the ideal scenario – but it isn’t always within budget. We work with manufacturers and contractors to provide safe and cost-effective retrofit window restrictors.
If windows need to be held open, our magnetic solution avoids the ligature risks of window stays, protecting patients from self-harm.
Small but powerful, our magnets require no power, making installation quick and inexpensive with minimal disruption. And with no moving parts, there’s nothing to break and no maintenance problems.
Benefits of our Hold-open Magnets:
Existing windows often need to be updated during refurbishment – for example, removing casement stays. Hold-closed magnets offer a functional alternative that keeps windows firmly shut.
Hold-closed magnets are always made to measure due to the differing space between the vent and inner frame.
We’re always happy to offer specification assistance.
Benefits of our Hold-closed Magnets:
Our range of anti-ligature window handles is an excellent way of quickly and easily improving window security within Mental Health environments. A great alternative to old uPVC window handles, they give service users (patients and clinical staff) the perfect balance of access and security. And our in-house experts help designers and clinical teams choose suitable options for every project.
To restore dignity for patients and create a homely environment, vulnerable service users need fixtures and fittings that are familiar and, most importantly, safe. Existing products on the marketplace failed to address this issue, so we developed a range of load release anti-ligature bedroom and bathroom fittings that are lightweight yet durable. Plus, they look just like the ones you’d find in a home bathroom – restoring dignity, creating a sense of normality, and helping to aid recovery.
Our range of anti-ligature locksets and handles is designed to keep service users safe. They’re intuitive, making life easier for staff and ensuring quick operation– especially in stressful situations. Plus, they’re robust and ideal for retrofitting, keeping maintenance and installation costs to a minimum.
