At FLR we are experienced in providing clients with anti-ligature and suicide-prevention solutions in order to keep people safe. We can supply fixtures and fittings for mental health facilities, schools, prisons and other sensitive environments where there is increased risk of residents attempting to harm themselves or others with elements in their environment. Some examples of our anti-ligature products are floor-to-ceiling showers, full-height door hinges and door and window hardware. We work with companies that have excellent reputations for manufacturing high quality products which pass stringent safety checks; these companies include Primera, Dartvalley and Wallgate. All FLR fitting staff are DBS checked in order to work in environments with young or vulnerable people, and they’re also highly trained in fitting anti-ligature products. We can even arrange for our fitters to work out of hours in order to keep disruption to an absolute minimum.
Many healthcare,hospitality and educational premises are required to create totally hygienic environments as part of the UK’s health and safety legislation. Whilst in the past, tiles were the wall solution of choice for these types of premises, there is an even better option available, and that is hygienic wall cladding. Tiles are reasonably easy to keep clean but the problem lies in the grout between the tiles, which tends to harbour dirt and bacteria and poses a health and safety risk. Modern PVCu wall cladding has a non-porous, smooth and continuous surface which minimises the potential for dirt to build up. It is incredibly easy to clean, holds up against harsh detergents without perishing, and can show up dirt better in order to enable more thorough cleaning. Furthermore, it can look incredibly sleek and stylish too. It is perfect for medical treatment rooms, commercial kitchens, public bathrooms and any other areas that must be impeccably clean at all times.
