Our patented ‘no gap’ pivot system successfully meets the highest possible safety standards, addressing the ligature issue as well as providing FD60 fire rating. And because it opens easily both inwards and outwards, it’s also anti-barricade without even having to think about it. Plus, with the right finish, it’s invisible, non-clinical and easy to maintain.
Anti-ligature and anti-barricade
As well as averting access to fixtures, it features anti-barricade washers, helping to reduce the risk of self-harm. The double-swing action also prevents the blocking of access to a room.
It meets the highest possible safety standards, so it’s fire rated on single leafs up to 1100mm, and is the only anti-ligature anti-barricade hinge to be FD60 rated.
Harmonious and discreet
Absence of visible fixings is less institutional, plus the sleek, curved appearance and range of timber finishes are aesthetically pleasing.
Robust and durable
Extra-long solid stainless steel pivot straps are tough, spreading the load and reducing the need for unsightly pivot protectors. Plus it's designed for 54mm doors – so toughness comes as standard.
On-site height adjustment is simple and quick to carry out.
Plus, the modular design means the profile can be replaced if damaged by wheelchair or beds – minimising maintenance costs.
As engineers, we approach testing in a methodical, measurable and repeatable way. That's why we carry out thorough abuse tests on our products – giving you complete confidence in the robustness and safety of our products.
And our anti-barricade pivot system is no different. We've simulated a number of abuse scenarios – including a sustained attack on the door and hinge.
Our range of door components for Mental Health are rigorously tested and designed for the real world – without compromising on safety or performance.
Installation manuals, DWG files, test evidence and specification advice for Mental Health door components.
Because our products are used in challenging Mental Health environments, they're rigorously tried and tested to withstand the most extreme abuse. Our doorset components undergo 12 mechanical and abuse tests.
