Following extensive research into the risks posed by doors, frames and hardware within the mental health environment, Leaderflush Shapland has developed a 2Way - A unique anti-barricade, anti-ligature doorset solution.

This exclusive product offer specifically designed for the mental health environment, not only recognises the potential hazard of patient barricade but also the risk represented of ligature by various doorset components.

Suitable for both fire rated and heavily used applications, 2Way offers specifiers, clinicians and professionals working within the mental health environment a non-institutional solution that can also incorporate the anti-microbial additive ‘Hygienilac’ to reduce the risk of secondary infection within healthcare environments.

The 2Way doorset is a unique 'Frame-within-a- Frame' concept, with an inner steel frame hinged off a fixed hardwood outer frame, using a Cooke Brothers continuous inter-leaf hinge. The steel frame will be retained securely within the hardwood frame by a dual bolt locking system.
