Our teams 

Design engineering team

Our team of design engineers are involved in the design and development of best-in-class products for Mental Health and other environments.

Having recently grown from three to six full-time employees,  they follow a rigorous design process, involving our customers at each stage of product development.  This 'Voice of Customer' approach helps ensure the end result overcomes existing limitations and meets our customers' needs. 


Doorsets team 

Our doorsets team are conveniently located across the UK – in easy reach of our customers.  The majority of their time is spent meeting customers to understand their requirements and help them specify the most suitable doorsets.

As well as assisting with specifications, they also arrange trials or visits with our mobile doorset samples – as some of our products are best seen to be appreciated.


Locksets team 

As locksets are a critical safety product in Mental Health environments, ensuring staff can always get access when they need it, we created a dedicated anti-ligature locksets and handles team.

Including roles from operations to sales, they have specialised knowledge and expertise on our range of anti-ligature locksets and handles.


Partner Support

At Safehinge Primera, our relationship with architectural ironmongers and door manufacturing partners is vital to our success and represents a major part of what we do.  That’s why we’ve created the new role of Partner Sales Support. 

Working with our door and ironmongery partners,  this involves providing specification and sales support for  component sales – including finger guards, anti-ligature locksets and door components for Mental Health.


Supporting roles

Exactly like the Mental Health and Education sectors we operate in, it's the supporting roles at Safehinge Primera which keep the whole operation moving every day.

From admin and finance, to marketing and warehousing, they communicate with our customers, suppliers and partners and ensure the business runs smoothly.  The result?  A dedicated team providing exceptional customer service, saving you time and helping you get what you need when you need it.
