The criteria for the control of windows in psychiatric units will inevitably differ from unit to unit according to the needs and individuals housed within. With our range of standard and bespoke solutions we are able to provide an option for almost all window types. As with all Primera products they have been tested to DHF TS001 where appropriate.
Primera Window Restrictors
Primera Stronghold window restrictors are designed to reduce the potential for absconding or throwing large objects through the window. They are available off the shelf as an ex-stock product in a white powder coated finish with all other RAL/BS colours available on a ‘works to order’ basis.
Each handed item is a fully adjustable two-part steel restrictor which, when fixed to the outside window frame, can be set to allow a variable amount of window opening distance. Designed as a companion product to the Primera magnetic hold open kits, the restrictor may be screw fixed direct onto the window frame or for high security, in challenging service areas may be bolt fixed through from inside to outside. Suitable for all types of window (timber, aluminium & PVCu).
