Tackling a common problem with hardware fixtures in mental health environments, Balco Global Ltd have developed a SAFEMOUNT™ plate for a whole range of dispensers.

Upon an attempt of ligature, our SAFEMOUNT™ stays firmly secured to the wall where the dispenser releases if an abnormal load is applied. A backing plate that doesn’t come away from the wall, reduces the weapons risk often found with these types of products.

This is a system designed with ease and safety in mind for staff and service users, reducing risk management.

The SAFEMOUNT™ has been designed to attach to a variety of dispensers already supplied within your wards, including soap, hand sanitiser, toilet paper and hand towels. Most dispensers can be adapted to ensure reduced ligature risk. Simply send us your dispensers and we will attach the component needed to work with the backing plate and then send the completed order back to you. Alternatively, these can be supplied as a pack to be fitted by your estates maintenance team or preferred contractor.

  • Concealed magnets that are secured to the wall
  • Breakaway at approximately 7kg
  • High performance dirt resistant and easy to clean

How does the dispenser attach to the plate?
The dispenser has an oval counterpart that is fitted on to the back on the dispenser. We can fit the counterpart onto the back of the dispensers for you, or you can do these yourself and we can provide fitting instructions. The counterpart then attaches to the plate via magnets which are concealed on the back of the plate and is securely fixed to the wall.
