Ligature Resistant Products for Behavioral Health Facilities

In environments like behavioral health clinics, crisis intervention facilities and detention centers, safety is a must.

What to Look for When Selecting Behavioral Health Doors

Creating a safe behavioral health environment requires selection of ligature resistant products that are free from sharp edges or potential catch points. Ligature resistant door hardware features rounded surfaces and low profiles that are designed to secure rooms without presenting potential safety hazards. These environments can also be equipped with ligature resistant doors and frames that enable staff to gain rapid access to a room. 

Proper selection of doors and hardware can help protect patients from harm and maintain a level of security for others, including professional and clinical staff. That’s why ASSA ABLOY offers complete opening solutions for behavioral health, including:
