When it comes to running an efficient, yet secure institutional facility, something like using the right door locks can be frequently overlooked. You might even ask yourself if it’s worth the risk by not using anti-ligature locks for your facility and putting those around you in danger. The term ‘Institutional’ is used as a general reference to hardware suitable for situations where a combination of security and life safety are required. Anti-ligature locks are purposed to deny the attachment of a ligature to a door lock and reduce the opportunity for self-harm or inflicting harm to others. These locks will greatly reduce the risk of suicide by asphyxiation/hanging on the door handle, but cannot be expected to eradicate the problem. Whether it is a high security psychiatric institution or a complex detention center, heavy duty anti-ligature locks can be the difference between a safe and unsafe facility.
