1-way SOS locksets - Ancora House (Mental Health, CAMHS)

1-way SOS locksets - Ancora House (Mental Health, CAMHS)

Safehinge Primera

Designed by Gilling Dod Architects, Ancora House is an award-winning 30-bed CAMHS unit. When it was being built, the trust specified a need for practical and safe en-suite locksets that were also consistent with the window and door handles. Our Primera 1-way SOS (Staff Override System) locksets were fitted on all of the en-suite rooms, offering superior safety by allowing staff to unlock the door even if the service user was to hold the turn/pull. P Plus our standard anti-ligature push/pull handles was fitted across the ward, providing consistency .

Electronic 5-way SOS locksets - Atherleigh Park (Mental Health and Dementia inpatient services)

Safehinge Primera

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. Our electronic locksets were used across the wards, offering superior safety for staff and service users – as the only electronic locksets with Staff Override System, staff can always gain access in an emergency. And 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.
Extra-wide anti-barricade doorsets - Acute Mental Health (Mersey Care)

Extra-wide anti-barricade doorsets - Acute Mental Health (Mersey Care)

Safehinge Primera

When Mersey Care upgraded their existing leaf-and-a half bedroom door arrangements, they wanted to improve the anti-barricade access and robustness of their doors – while still having a clear opening width of 1000mm. They found the leaf-and-a-half arrangement wasn’t ideal – with a bulky meeting stile and additional exposed metalwork. To address this, we proposed an extra-wide single leaf Symphony doorset. Aided by market-leading fire evidence, the leaf is 1100mm providing a clear opening of 1050mm – more than enough space for a service user and two members of staff.
Integral finger guards - Cwm Ifor Primary School

Integral finger guards - Cwm Ifor Primary School

Safehinge Primera

We've been working with Caerphilly County Borough Council since 2010. Like many Local Education Authorities, they'd previously used plastic finger guards but grew frustrated with the lack of durability and need for frequent replacements. They tried a number of different plastic options but none were up to the job in a modern high traffic school environment – which is where we came in. The discreet design of our integral finger guards design out the problem of trapped fingers, as well as helping incorporate flexibility into the building design, embracing the school's culture and ethos of community and support.
Integral finger guards - The Pods Leisure centre

Integral finger guards - The Pods Leisure centre

Safehinge Primera

As the largest sports and fitness facility in North Lincolnshire, the council required finger guards that could not only combat high user traffic and high moisture content, but also blend in seamlessly with it's natural surroundings. And our integral finger guards were the natural answer. We installed our integral finger guards in this award-winning leisure centre, as their ability to withstand bumps and bashes made it perfect for this high traffic environment. The stainless steel pivots and quality aluminium construction made it robust enough to take everything in it's stride – lasting the lifetime of the door.
Mental Health Corridor doorsets - Integrated Mental Health Services (Barnet, Enfield and Haringey)

Mental Health Corridor doorsets - Integrated Mental Health Services (Barnet, Enfield and Haringey)

Safehinge Primera

When Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS trust approached us, they required new doorsets as their existing double-leaf corridor doors with surface mounted, scissor-arm closers were presenting a ligature risk and were regularly over-opened, causing damage. Plus, the leaves were vandalised, requiring regular repainting. We supplied our extra-wide, single-leaf doorsets with concealed hold-open closers, offering superior safety by reducing the ligature risk. We also used a vandal-resistant PVC facing to brighten the space and minimise regular maintenance costs.
