Solutions for safer settings

Yewdale has extended their magnet options for their anti-ligature product range YewdaleKestrel®.

The magnets separate under a lighter load and are designed for areas where children, adolescents and people with eating disorders, where their body weight may not be great enough to easily break a standard ligature point of 20kg per bracket. 

The YewdaleKestrel® range now incorporates two reduced load magnets; 13kg approximate break point per magnet and a 17kg approximate break point per magnet. The magnets can be used with Yewdales’ anti-ligature product range which incorporates curtain tracks and room accessories from coat hooks to shower heads.

*The majority of YewdaleKestrel® systems have multiple brackets. The breakaway point should never exceed double the values above, for example, approximately 40kg on the standard load capacity.

 

Yewdale recommends that all healthcare environments carry out a risk-assessment prior to installation to ensure the magnets meet the specific needs of the environment.

Yewdale offers the only fail-safe range of exclusive anti-ligature products designed to maximise the safety of persons by removing the death potential where secure care is required.

As anti-ligature specialists, you can be assured that all our products have been developed with the needs of healthcare providers in mind and based on real life challenges.
