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.
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.
