SafeArt

Highly suited to mental health environments, SafeArt allows calming images to be displayed in a room, walkway, or corridor without creating ligature points. Our anti-ligature SafeArt is constructed from soft foam and easily mounts to most walls and surfaces via load release magnets. The artwork will separate from the wall when subjected to a load greater than 9kgs.

  • Available in 6 sizes
  • Tamper-resistant design
  • Soft foam construction
  • Fire-resistant and Biosafe

Benefits

Relaxing, colourful images are printed on SafeArt to reduce anxiety and create a positive therapeutic environment where service users feel comfortable.

Select an image from our standard range of images or supply your own which we can print on SafeArt’s surface. The print quality is exceptional and long-lasting.

Due to the magnetic fixing, SafeArt is interchangeable. This means numerous SafeArts can be swapped within a building to introduce new images to different areas.

The load release magnets are securely sewn into tamper-resistant pockets located on the rear of the product. A stainless steel mounting plate is fitted to the wall, providing the magnet with a fixing point.

Under excessive load, the magnets will break away from the steel plate and the SafeArt will separate, preventing the creation of ligature points. The soft foam material poses minimal risk of injury and ensures the product will not sustain damage if it falls.

The mounting plate is only 3mm thick, features rounded edges to prevent ligature risk and cannot be removed from the wall.

The anti-ligature artwork is covered in an anti-microbial (BioSafe) material which is fire resistant and easily cleaned.

Small, medium and large artwork sizes are available.

Options

Small: 305mm x 305mm or 457mm x 457mm

Medium: 610mm x 610mm or 610mm x 762mm

Large: 915mm x 915mm or 915mm x 1067mm

Specification

The magnetic anti-ligature YewdaleKestrel® SafeArt with vandal resistant, soft foam core as manufactured by Yewdale, +44 (0)1268 570900. Manufactured from flame retardant fabric, constructed using anti-pick, tamper resistant materials, and incorporating Biosafe antibacterial formula to withstand vigorous daily use in hospital and mental health environments. The tear/stain resistant SafeArt is anti-static and will fall away from its magnetic fixing plates when subjected to a load greater than 9kgs.

O+M Guidance

It is an NHS 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 and testing of YewdaleKestrel® fittings to identify any possible damage or evidence of tampering and undertake an annual load test. Annual testing should only be carried out by Protects Plus 0345 646 0955.

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.
