Our patented ‘no gap’ pivot system successfully addresses the ligature issue, and solves many other problems. 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
Averting access to fixtures and details like anti-ligature washers helps reduce the risk of self-harm, while the double-swing action 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.
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.
The modular design means the profile can be replaced if damaged by wheel chair or beds – minimising maintenance costs. Plus the on-site height adjustment is simple and quick to carry out.
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.
