When repurposing an existing building to expand Mental Health capacity in the area, NHS Highland wanted to create a safe environment that would implement the current best practice for Mental Health design. This meant selecting doorsets which were safe and functional, yet non-institutional. That’s why they selected our Symphony doorsets with our freeswing door closer.
Installing our Symphony doorsets meant the trust could keep the doors ajar, helping to emulate the home environment and enable better observation.
And with no closing force, they were less institutional and easy to use, making it suitable for users with reduced strength.
With underfloor heating throughout, floor spring closers were out of the question. Luckily our concealed door closers are mounted in the frame head, so there was no floor excavation required – making it the ideal choice for the project.
Offering in-patient mental healthcare and support, Isle of Wight foundation Trust upgraded their existing Sevenacres Ward in 2017 using our anti-barricade doorsets and electronic locksets to support service users at different stages of their recovery pathway
When Newbridge House was being refurbished they wanted bathroom fittings that offered superior safety whilst also creating a homely and welcoming environment. That's why they chose our load release fittings, minimising the ligature risk whilst looking like traditional bathroom fittings.
When the trust required new doorsets to combat their current safety and durability challenges, they turned to our extra-wide, single-leaf doorsets. With concealed hold-open closers, this helped to reduce the ligature risk whilst the vandal-resistant PVC facing helped to brighten the space and minimise maintenance costs.
When this new CAMHS facility was looking for a single door closer system for multiple uses, they chose our concealed transom door closers. As well as offering the ultimate in safety, it has no closing force during day-to-day use, helping to assist with normalisation.
