    There's no visible fixings on the bedroom side of doorsets apart from the handle – just like at home.


As product designers, we’ve applied our engineering expertise to the challenges of Mental Health.  After listening closely to architects, designers, clinicians and service users, we’ve combined the best practice from both hotel and Mental Health design to create our Symphony doorsets. Designed with recovery in mind, their collaborative components work in perfect harmony to address every challenge in every Mental Health environment.

Our research-led approach helps us create a unique balance of aesthetics, safety and robustness. Rigorously tested to withstand abuse, our non-institutional doorsets are specifically designed for inclusive Mental Health units that aid recovery.  Plus our commitment to exceptional customer service makes us simply different – giving you the flexibility to specify the right doorset for the right recovery pathway.

Thanks to our proven track record in Mental Health design, and experience in developing award-winning products, our unrivalled knowledge will also help you understand, choose and specify the right doorset.  Every time.

It’s why Symphony doorsets are only available directly from Safehinge Primera – and why they’ve been embraced by the Mental Health community and are now used extensively across the UK.


When repurposing an existing building to expand mental health capacity in the area, NHS Highland wanted to create a safe environment, which implemented the most up to date best practise for Mental Health design. This meant selecting doorsets which were safe and functional, yet non-institutional. With a complete range of doorsets, Safehinge was brought in to provide advice – and Symphony doorsets were their preferred choice.

They wanted bedroom doors with a residential feel – in particular allowing doors to be left ajar to emulate the home environment and for better observation. That’s why we recommended our freeswing closer. With no closing force, it’s less institutional and easy to use by service users with reduced strength. And it’s linked to the fire alarm, ensuring the door self-closes when needed – meeting the current fire regulations in Scotland.

With underfloor heating throughout, floor spring closers were out of the question. Luckily our concealed door closers are mounted in the frame head, so there’s no floor excavation required – making it the ideal choice on the project.
