WINDOW HANDLES

Our range of anti-ligature window handles give service users the perfect balance of access and security.  And our expertise helps designers and clinical teams to choose the right options for every project. 

Modern Mental Health units are often used alongside older buildings adapted from previous use.  So window safety products must be flexible enough to suit every style, from traditional windows to contemporary tilt-and-turns, in timber, aluminium and PVCu.  Whatever the project, we work closely with major manufacturers to maximise safety by supplying suitable anti-ligature handles.

Our window products are specifically designed to meet multiple needs on the same site.  So they blend in to any backdrop to provide seamless safety for staff and service users alike.

Lifeline keyway

Our Lifeline keyway system uses a special, staff-only key, limiting the potential for service users to block keyways. So it keeps windows operational and reduces maintenance issues and costs.

Plus staff stay in full control of window use at all times. The staff-only key can be used across multiple platforms, including anti-barricade doorstops, locksets and vision panels.

This means fewer keys on the ward, which improves security and reduces the number of keys carried on staff key chains – making things simpler and reducing the institutional sound of jangling keys.

Convertible

The lock can easily be converted from staff-controlled to user-controlled – and back again. This allows staff to decide who has window privileges, providing simple flexibility on the ward.

In staff mode, a key is needed to operate the small turn-rose, which has insuffcient grip to be used manually.

This gives staff complete control over window operation – maintaining both security and service user safety.

Standard Push/Pull

Designed for windows with no locking mechanism, it allows service users to operate their own windows – restoring dignity.

Ideal for use with hold-closed magnets and for use with horizontal or vertical sliding vents.

Camlock

With the same key used for all windows  – known as keyed alike – the camlock is a simple, tried, and tested handle.  In most cases, we supply keyed alike, but we can supply locks with keys unique to you, known as keyed-to-differ.

Compatible with magnetic hold-open window kits.

Testing

INDEPENDENTLY TESTED

Safety is our priority.  That’s why we independently tested all our handles using the TS001 specification from the Door & Hardware Federation – and why they all passed at the highest level (A4). 

As well as offering anti-tamper fixings, rounded corners, and chamfered edged back-plates, our window handles are robust and designed to withstand day-to-day use in abusive environments

Manufactured from die-cast zinc and solid steel plate, they’re finished in satin stainless steel and can also be RAL powder-coated to match any design scheme. 

Our flexible range includes locking handles for all levels of access and security – allowing designers and clinical teams to choose the perfect level for each project.  The easy-grip handles are also suitable for service users with reduced dexterity or strength.
