Kestrel

  • K100 Shower Track

  • Part No K100
  • The rigid, high-grade aluminium track section and maintenance-free, wheeled roller hooks are just an introduction to the YewdaleKestrel K100 shower track system. Designed to give years of trouble-free service and specifically for high-risk mental health areas, this shower track system uses magnetic wall-fix brackets where the tracks meet the wall, and magnetic top-fix brackets where suspension hangers meet the ceiling. This ensures that, under excess load, the suspension hanger separates from the ceiling bracket leaving no remaining points of ligature - a highly essential safety feature, as it is surprisingly easy to attach a cord to a fixed vertical rod and use it as a ligature point.

Benefits

Strength and simplicity make the K100 the first choice for a full number of applications. The maintenance-free, premium quality track system has a strong and attractive aluminium profile which offers you more for less, in that it is able to span 2.5 metres between hangers, providing long term reliability. In a similar fashion, curtain removal points are provided as standard on every track for added convenience when replacing curtains. The self-lubricating roller runner hooks are quickly loaded into the track through this point of access, making the process easy. Mounted on magnetic brackets for 100% fail-safe anti-ligature functionality.

Options

Silver anodised track; Any RAL colour available to order; Biosafe® antibacterial treatment option available within white powder-coated finish only.

O+M Guidance

It is an NHS Estates requirement that items suspended on load-release support systems should be maintained and load-tested in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions on an annual basis. The YewdaleKestrel® system is maintenance free and its performance remains constant even after repeated use. It is a requirement, however, to carry out a physical inspection of YewdaleKestrel® fittings to identify any possible damage or evidence of tampering.
 

Safety Note

Sensitive electronic equipment may be damaged by proximity to a magnetic field and should not come within 150mm of the underside of the brackets. Any load-release device, by its nature, may cause damage when operated. Articles suspended from the YewdaleKestrel® magnetic anti-ligature system will come down when pulled.
 

YewdaleKestrel® products are designed as standalone products only. Care should be taken when assessing or arranging a room to ensure that YewdaleKestrel® products cannot be misused in conjunction with any other item, furniture or fixings in the room. It is the responsibility of the end user or client to ensure the product is suitable for the environment it is being installed in. YewdaleKestrel® products must be fitted by a qualified professional following the manufacturer’s instructions. Failure to do so could jeopardise the product’s effectiveness as an anti-ligature system.
