High Risk Products

Sanitary Range for Areas with High Security Requirements

People in acute mental crises tend to exhibit self-harming behaviour to an increasing degree. An environment which makes suicide attempts more difficult increases their safety decisively. The high risk products from HEWI have been developed for this purpose. HEWI offers special fitout solutions for bathrooms with high safety and security requirements, for example, in psychiatric or forensic facilities. The products are designed to make suicide attempts significantly more difficult. Hooks, rails with shower head holder and shower curtain rails are available as suicide prevention versions. They are made of high-quality polyamide and are characterised by their durable quality.

The rail with shower head holder and shower handrail combination have a wall connection with 45° angle, so that it is significantly more difficult to fix cords, ropes or similar to them.

The shower curtain rail is fixed by magnets and releases from the bracket under a load of more than 25 kg. The magnet fixing makes the rail easy to reattach. The aluminium core inside the curtain rail makes it particularly lightweight. This minimises the risk of injuries when it is released from the anchoring.

The hooks, for example, are designed to bend down if they are loaded with a weight above 25 kg.
