We approach testing in a methodical, measurable, and repeatable way. Unlike current industry guidance, which focuses on just two or three tests, our products undergo 12 rigorous mechanical and abuse assessments, as well as strict fire and acoustic checks.
Our abuse testing is designed to simulate the physical abuse that our doorsets may be exposed to in a Mental Health environment. Testing each part of the doorset and covering a range of attacks such as body impact and HNB mallet, they ensure that our doorsets can withstand extreme abuse, alerting staff of any disruptive behaviour before any serious damage can be caused.
Simulating the sustained abuse that a doorset is be exposed to in a Mental Health environment. It tests the durability of the doorstop and the frame's connection to the structural opening.
Simulating the repeated impact of a body slamming against the door and testing the damage to the doorstop, frame, hinge and fixings.
Designed to withstand extreme abuse, the pivots are tested beyond the levels set by current industry guidance.
We bond the nibs to the door leaf, making them almost impossible to remove (we can't do it).
Can a vision panel sustain a continued assault without becoming a risk to the service user? Sureview can.
Simulating a sustained attack on the door and hinge to ensure that no prospect of self-harm are exposed.
This test focuses on the emergency release doorstop (Swiftstop), simulating a service user trying to barricade the door using their body strength.
The soft, lightweight en-suite leaves fold over when held – making them hard to swing and minimising the risk of weaponisation.
Built to withstand extreme abuse, our seclusion room door was hit more than 100 times with a paving maul in the same location.
