Together with Primera, we've been designing, testing and manufacturing award-winning products for challenging Mental Health environments for more than a decade. We work closely with NHS and private healthcare providers to improve lives and keep both staff and service users safer.
Today, we’re proud to that our anti-ligature handles and override locksets have been supplied to more than 80% of NHS care providers, plus numerous private providers and residential care homes across the UK.
Working closely with the Mental Health community for so many years has given us a thorough understanding of the requirements – and we know the significant contribution that good design makes to the smooth running of care facilities and the recovery of service users. That’s why we take an active part in creating better Mental Health recovery environments through our role on the Board of the Design in Mental Health Network.
The result? Our product design engineers develop products to address the challenges facing modern Mental Health units – including providing fast emergency access, minimising installation disruption, and ensuring determined barricades are overcome.
