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.

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.
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’s 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.
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.
