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.
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.
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.
Offering in-patient mental healthcare and support, Isle of Wight foundation Trust upgraded their existing Sevenacres Ward in 2017 using our anti-barricade doorsets and electronic locksets to support service users at different stages of their recovery pathway
When Newbridge House was being refurbished they wanted bathroom fittings that offered superior safety whilst also creating a homely and welcoming environment. That's why they chose our load release fittings, minimising the ligature risk whilst looking like traditional bathroom fittings.
When repurposing an existing building, NHS Highland wanted doorsets that were non-institutional and user-friendly so choose our Symphony doorsets with freeswing door closer. Plus, it's linked to the fire alarm, meaning the door self-closes when necessary.
