Hook

  • 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

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.

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.

Design: HealSafe Interiör
