Board with hooks

  • No ligature fixation possibility, as string will release at an abnormal vertical load
  • Easy to install, tight fit to the wall and extremely difficult to detach
  • Several colours, customized colour on request

Small spaces demand smart and safe storage

At HealSafe Interiör we care about safety without compromising the normalization of patient rooms. Our suicide resistant hook has no sharp edges or loose parts.
The hooks are produced in several different colours and are mounted with security screws to a high pressure laminate board with 2, 3, 4 or 5 hooks as a standard offer. 
The board can be ordered custom made in desired length and number of hooks.

(Vertical load tests on the hook with a 1 mm string, a shoelace 8 x 1 mm or a rope made from cotton sheets relea sed at between 8.5 to 9.8 kg.)

For measurements, see listed models under Number of hooks.

Description

  •  No sharp edges or loose parts, the board is mounted with security screws
  •  Sloped edges to prevent attachment of a string or similar to create a ligature
  • The hook is tested at RISE/SP to withstand 1000 releases, still retaining its shape and function.
  • 
Resistant to cleaning agents
  • Patented
  • 
Designed and produced in Sweden

The unique designed board facilitates a close fit against the wall to reduce the risk of a string or similar to be jammed between the wall and the board. There is no need for anti-pick sealants.

In spite of the hook’s ‘normal’ appearance, and attractive design, the meticulous choice of material combined with very specific design details makes it both safe and functional. The patented self-harm and suicide resistant hook is designed with the aim to add colour and design to the care environment, still fulfilling the need for safety. Developed in collaboration with Helix forensic psychiatric hospital in Stockholm.

The hook holds the weight of several garments or towels, but when an excessive force is applied in a downwards direction its anti-ligature function releases. The hook does not break but bends, forcing the ligature to slide off. After more than 1000 cycles the hook maintains its shape and function.
