Protecting staff and patients with an institutional TV enclosure.
There is enough to consider on a daily basis within the life of an institution like a prison or mental health facility, to keep the place running without incidents, so one major factor to think about is safety. There are directives, policies and procedures to adhere to but some things just get overlooked or budget is an issue which in turn has an adverse effect.
Pro Enc’s institution TV enclosures.
Pro Enc’s institutional TV enclosures is the answer; both practically and cost wise. This anti-ligature TV enclosure has been deployed in thousands of locations around the world, let alone the UK and America. It has stopped and deterred many situations which could have escalated out of control and ended with a serious injury or even a fatality. The glass from a television screen can create a lethal weapon – dangerous for self harm and injury against another person. Not only is the glass dangerous, but a wall mounted TV itself creates a ligature point from which to hang from.
Institutions not only provide people with a roof over their heads but also a safe environment in which to thrive and receive the medical interventions to help them. Providing all the daily facilities we take for granted is challenging in such an facility, however there are precautions which over come hazardous situations from developing. An enclosure also prevents a TV from being stolen! I’m not sure how a television can be taken out of a prison without anyone noticing, but it happens. It’s got to be bolted down otherwise it will disappear…
Cost Vs. Budget.
Cost and budgets are always an issue, however Pro Enc understand this, so for large quantities they have redesigned and developed a basic, yet highly effective TV enclosure which suits many institutional rooms and buildings – still ensuring safety to the patients and inmates (and of course the staff).
The design is one which has attempted to be copied, but without success and is ‘patent pending’ registered to protect it – inferior enclosures have NOT given the level of protection necessary for a safe environment. Because of its superior design and manufacture, it can withstand a tremendous amount of force and due to the nature of these institutions it really needs to. It is mounted directly onto a wall and thus eliminates a ligature point. The side panels are sloping at such a degree that it is virtually impossible to created a loop of material for self harm. Other implications which can cause points for self harm are gaps; where even a paper clip can be slipped in to hold material sufficiently to take a body weight.
ProEnc has taken advice and examples from the prison management, as they had the direct experience, yet the budget couldn’t cover the quantity required, so Pro Enc are pleased to offer their experience and significant TV enclosure for institutional televisions.
