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:

  • Robust, Anti-tamper, Corrosion-resistant fittings,
  • Keyless operation,
  • Finished in any RAL colour,
  • Top or side-hung vents,
  • Anti-ligature (DHF TS001),
  • Suitable for PVCu, timber and aluminium frames,
  • Available in a wide range of sizes or made-to-measure window restraint

Hold-closed magnets


Hold-closed 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:

  • For windows without espagnolette locks
  • Ideal for refurbishing old windows
  • Ideal substitute if no locking mechanism is available
