Self-harm and suicide resistant curtain rail – ceiling mounted

The self-harm* and suicide resistant curtain rail has a patented and unique design. It is developed to meet challenges in mental health and similar environments to foster a caring, safe, and healing environment. Offering the possibility to design an interior with curtains not only creates a less institutional environment, it also allows control of daylight -an important factor for autonomy. Curtains also contribute with color and improved acoustics.

The rail’s patented design resists the attachment of a ligature, unlike ordinary rails where the U-shaped profile offers a cavity to fasten a ligature. The robust rail is mounted securely to the wall or ceiling, which prevents it from detaching and used for self-harm or as a weapon.

The curtain hangs from the rail with specially designed runners that release when heavier weight is applied. The weight needed for the curtain runners to release is in relationship to the weight of the curtain itself and the number of runners. Tested at RISE/SP

The unique design of the suicide resistant curtain rail allows for more safe and normalized physical environments in risk settings . A normalized physical environment is suggested to contribute to a better healing process.  The curtain rail has a unique design without cavities that otherwise create risk for ligature attachments.The mounting with safety screws makes it extremely difficult to pull down.

The curtain hangs from the rail by custom designed runners that release when abnormal weight is applied. One runner releases at a maximum load of 1.5 kg and a curtain with twenty runners at a maximum of 16.7 kg. The load needed to release the curtain from the rail ensures its resistance towards suicide attempts.

The design of the runners facilitate for staff to easily mount the curtain when released – completely without costs for external craftsmen/installers.The unique design does not include loose large parts that may be demolished or used to exercise self-harm or used as a weapon.The curtain rail is designed, developed and produced in Sweden by HealSafe Interiör and is offered in three versions: a wall mounted, a ceiling mount and a 90 degree shower rail.
