Anti-ligature Access Panels provide high quality openings in ceilings (up to 600 x 600mm) and walls for access to building engineering services. Our doors are finished in powder-coated white and can be over painted to blend with the surrounding surface. The larger panels have full length piano hinges with the smaller panels using unique pivot hinges.
Anti-ligature Access Panels are fitted with a sealed radial pin tumbler lock with no opportunity for a ligature point, furthermore, there are no holes or openings in any part of the panel which would provide an opportunity for a ligature point.
Notably, the Anti-ligature Access Panel is specified with insulation, fire rating, acoustic reduction and an alternative higher security locking mechanism.
There are two frame options for the the anti-ligature access panel. A beaded frame type (SBF) with perforated flange to key into the surrounding membrane. This is used where the surface has yet to be skimmed or tape and jointed. As a result this can be used in lower risk environments. Or the picture frame (PF), where a reduced flange sits on the surface of the wall. This covers the cut edge of the aperture and is used when the surface has already been finished and decorated.
The anti-ligature design characteristics of this product are not intended to replace or substitute the need for necessary supervision of those who may be at risk, or for other necessary proactive measures to be taken in the specific circumstances of usage. The Access Panel Company does not offer any products for sale as ‘ligature free’ and will not be liable for any claims arising from ligature attachment on our products. It is the remains customer’s responsibility to ensure that products purchased and installed are suitable for the environments they are installed in.
