Turning the door into a big ‘weighing-scale’, it constantly checks the load across the whole door – not just the top – raising an alarm when there are significant changes to the load applied on the door.
Existing door-top alarms simply move the ligature risk to another part of the door – like the latch or threshold.
The cover-plate is the only visible component, meaning no loss of door aesthetic or visible tamper points. Staff can perform routine inspection without tools.
It’s battery operated and there’s no invasive cabling, floor excavations, or remedial repairs – saving over £800 compared to installed door-top alarms. Plus it connects to existing staff attack systems.
We can supply our doors prepared for the alarm, allowing you to retrofit in future with near-zero disruption.
At the Design in Mental Health Network 2018 Awards, the full-door ligature alarm won the coveted Product Innovation of Year award – with the judges commenting that it “will undoubtedly improve service user safety”.
They said: “Safehinge Primera appear to have found a great solution for a long-standing problem – doors and ligature points. They were selected not just for the product, but the time taken to research and then trial this solution.”
