Our robust metal vision panel bead has no visible metal fixings on the bedroom side – just like the inside of a front door at home.

With a range of colours, from a metal-plated finish with lacquer to a RAL colour power coat – they're designed to blend into any environment. 

They can be square or rectangle shaped, allowing better observation and light flow, helping to create a high quality, recovery-focused environment.

Offering superior safety and aiding recovery

Although the vision panel beading looks like more residential than institutional, our vision panels are designed to offer superior safety to reduce self-harm. 

How does it reduce self harm?

  • All fixings are on the corridor side, eliminating additional metal work and from the bedroom space, aiding recovery
  • Beading has a curved edge on bedroom side, minimising the risk of self harm
  • The thumb-turn is set back from the door surface, making it harder to use for self-harm
  • The improved edge detailing creates a softer design that’s safer and reduces the opportunity for self-harm.  

Universal staff-key

Our vision panel uses our universal staff-only Lifeline key, compatible with our window locks and anti-barricade stops. 

What is lifeline key?

Designed to resist tampering and keyway blocking, Lifeline closed keyway locks can only be operated by a staff-only key – enhancing security and giving staff peace of mind that locks wil work when required.

Using five spring-loaded forward facing pins, the keyway is automatically closed off when the Lifeline key is removed from the lock.  So foriegn objects, like tissue paper or chewing gum, don't block the keyway.

The patented Lifeline key is only available from Safehinge Primera, reducing the risk of illicit online purchase. This ensures only staff can operate locks, improving both security and privacy.
