Who are we?


Balco-Global is a manufacturing company producing products for behavioural health environments with a simple mission in mind: aiding recovery through safer spaces.

In these challenging environments there are issues such as ligature risk, weapons risk, arson and self-harm.

It is our goal to innovate, develop and manufacture products that reduce and help manage these risks, protecting both staff and service users through their vulnerable times whilst being as conventional as possible. We want to help create spaces that are less institutional, helping to create more therapeutic, homely and healing environments.


What Clients Say

We loved the fact you could use an image on the door, it helped brighten up the room. We started installing them in our higher secure wards, however have started rolling them out across the whole site as they seem to suit all environments. I would highly recommend them for any environment, they are durable but with a soft touch

Very happy with the product and will specify it on all projects going forward. Improved from a fire retardancy and IOT perspective from a previous product we had used

In mental healthcare one of the biggest areas of risks within patient bedrooms is the bathroom door and it's hinges. It was great when we discovered softdoor, it reduced ligature risks in this area to a minimum, whilst till being able to maintain privacy and dignity. We liked the ease at which they could be installed, the simplicity of design.

We introduced the SoftBoxes to our newly refurbished anti-ligature wardrobes and they have provided a solution to allow the Service User to safely keep items tidy in their rooms as well as adding colour and being an interesting feature.
