AFL Architects wanted design consistency across the separate psychiatric intensive care unit and adult inpatient rehabilitation wards in this new Mental Health facility, in Leigh, Wigan.  That's why they chose our electronic locksets. 

 

 

Offering superior safety for staff and service users

Electronic locksets were used across the wards, offering superior safety for staff and service users – as the only electronic lockset with 5-way SOS
(Staff Override System), this means staff can always gain access in an emergency.  

Offering service users control over their own living space by issuing a harmless key fob also met the trust's requirements of promoting service user independence and restoring dignity.  
 

 

 

Balancing consistency with service user requirements   

To ensure consistency throughout the hospital, electronic locksets were used across the separate care units and rehabilitation wards.  

For the dementia ward, the trust also installed our Oryx handles to create the homely, appearance of a domestic door yet make door opening easier for those with a weaker grip.
