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 or 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 & healing environments.
Whilst innovation is our passion, we are also passionate about testing! All our products are tried & tested prior to launch. As a company offering these products on a global scale via our growing network of distributors, we ensure the products meet the specific requirements and regulations for each country and are tested accordingly.
We only get feedback if it is negative and so far I haven’t heard anything negative about this product.
Very happy with the product and will specifiy it on all projects going forward. It was improved from a fire retardancy and ICT 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 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.
You have done a very good job of making the best breakaway ensuite door we have tested so far
The SoftDoor has provided an excellent anti-ligature solution to our ensuites, and the ability to add images on the SoftDoor has also allowed the introduction of artwork into the bedrooms, adding to the ambiance of the environment.
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.
