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 color and design to the care environment, still fulfilling the need for safety. Developed for Helix forensic psychiatric hospital in Stockholm.
It 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 brake but bends, forcing the ligature to slide off. After more than 1000 cycles the hook regains its shape and function.
The hook can be mounted directly to the wall or ordered mounted on a board of extremely robust high-pressure laminate.
The board with hooks is available as standard with two or three hooks. On request it can be equipped with a number of hooks according to the customer needs. Choos fasade kanter för att hindra fäste av snöre eller liknande e color!
