The original and award-winning anti-ligature operable window, widely specified for use in mental health facilities
Our flagship product, the multi-award-winning and internationally acclaimed Safevent anti-ligature window, has become a benchmark product for supervised care environments.
This ground breaking and patented design was first launched in the UK fourteen years ago. In the intervening years it has been refined in conjunction with clinicians, facilities managers, service users and architects to ensure it remains at the forefront of mental health product design.
With tens of thousands windows now installed and in use throughout the UK and around the globe, we are proud to work with over 80% of NHS Trusts as well as leading private healthcare providers.
The Safevent is a horizontal or vertical sliding window system comprising a double fronted window and a free sliding external sash.
The double window has one glazed area and the other is fitted with a stainless steel mesh. The sliding sash is glazed, sealing the mesh side when closed and is weather tight and draughtproof.
In this way, the window provides natural light and ventilation which can be controlled by service users, yet it also helps to maintain a safe, secure and anti-ligature environment to meet the requirements of secure facilities.
All Safevents are fabricated in-house at our Warrington manufacturing facility to ISO 9001 standards, and most importantly, always installed by our own Britplas employed fitting teams.
We have installed tens of thousands of Safevent windows in new build and refurbishment projects for public and private healthcare providers in the UK and across the globe.
Here are some of the reasons why the Safevent continues to be the benchmark window product for supervised care environments.
Our patented Multask handle provides an opening winder, patient thumb lock and staff lock within a single anti-ligature, stainless steel component.
