Award-winning product design company, Safehinge Primera has developed a range of doorsets and locksets to help reduce the risk of suicide in inpatient environments. At first sight their products might look similar to others on the market, but look more closely and you’ll discover crucial design details that could help you save a life.
Passionate about helping to improve mental health care, each of their products balance usability and aesthetics with unrivalled safety.
Their anti-barricade doorset with electronic access control system empowers patients with the independence to lock and unlock their bedroom space. Backed up by a 5-way mechanical override, staff have reliable, fast access in an emergency.
Safehinge Primera understand that privacy and dignity is vital to patient wellbeing. Their en-suite door and full-door ligature alarm products demonstrate this without compromising safety. Commended as “lifesaving” by DIMHN judges, their en-suite door releases at 8kg with a staff-only reset option highlighting ligature learning. Their ligature alarm continually checks the load across the whole door – not just the top – raising an alarm when significant load changes are applied.
