Display sizes used in Behavioral and Psychiatric Hospitals
Understanding what display sizes used in behavioral and psychiatric hospitals is important, so that the relevant protection is provided to protect the patients from self-harm, working with the US Mental Health Department it seems they have standardized on LCD displays from 27” to 36”.
DOOH USA have over 18 months experience working closely with the US Mental Health Department Consultants to develop their non loop, anti ligature LCD TV enclosure that is specified by architects in new builds and extensions.
So why is this display sizes used in behavioral and psychiatric hospitals?
One of the main reasons, is that this range of displays are freely available and not a special order, neither are the protective TV housings. When a hospital plans a build one of the last things to consider is the location of the screen, this is why the displays are rarely larger than 46” in size. Not forgetting the lower cost for a smaller display and enclosure.
DOOH USA’s non loop, anti-ligature TV enclosure.
Their products are manufactured in the USA, so quality is guaranteed; this is backed with their extensive warranty.
When you purchase a protective housing from DOOH USA for use in a behavioral or psychiatric hospital, you just have to open the box and fit the housing on the wall, it comes fully assembled with an internal TV bracket so you do not have to:
- Waste time assembling the product
- Have to paint around the display – to make the cover ‘look’ like it has a back!
DOOH USA’s solution works straight from the box, providing the ultimate in protection, they use ¼” thick Lexan others use 1/8” thick (half the thickness of DOOH USA’s product), their non-loop, anti-ligature TV housing is locked with high security locks everyone else uses cam or compression locks that a child could open, the display can then be damaged and used as a weapon on staff and other patients.
DOOH USA have developed a solution that incorporates stereo speakers, so it is now an all in one solution and will fit all displays with an earphone jack.
