We recognise that seclusion room doorsets are different to others. They need to withstand high levels of aggression, for extended periods of time.
Built to withstand this extreme abuse, our solid laminated hardwood doors are designed to be robust and safe.
But like everything we do, they’re also practical – so staff can use them in stressful situations when service users are at their most vulnerable. And they’re designed with timber effect finish to create a calming environment to aid de-escalation.
Safe for staff
The architrave is recessed into the door frame on the internal face of the doorset. This reduces the risk of a service user being able to work it free and using it as a weapon.
Robust for extreme abuse
The solid hardwood door core meets recommendations from the National Association of Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (NAPICU). A PVC door facing is standard as it’s the most durable in high-abuse environments.
This PVC facing is available in both timber effect and colour finishes, to complement any surrounding. Timber effect, in particular, can help create a more calming space.
We initially tested geared aluminium hinges, but instead chose a robust continuous stainless steel option as it can withstand both the door’s weight and any potential abuse.
Choise of locking options
1. The mechanical locking system is a ‘slam shut’ system – with the bolts locking in placed as soon as the door is closed.
2. Our electronic locks can be incorporated on our smart access control platform or third party platforms. Fitted in the hardwood door frame instead of the door leaf, they offer robustness and strength. All wiring is hidden in the frame to avoid tampering.
To ensure robustness, our choice of mechanical and electronic locks have a resistance of 40,000N lateral force.
Safe on the inside
Protruding items such as a handle, hinge or vision panel beading have all been removed from the inside of the door. So there are no protrusions which could be used to self-harm – protecting service users when they’re most vulnerable.
