Liverpool Hospital is located in the south-western suburbs of Liverpool, NSW and is 50 minutes away from the Sydney CBD. It is the largest hospital in New South Wales and one of the leading trauma centres in Australia.
Ross Wenden from Liverpool Hospital contacted Independent Locksmiths & Security to initiate an upgrade of door hardware across the mental health unit, to minimise the risk of injury to their patients.
We recommended the Lockwood Detention Series door furniture. This range was designed after extensive research with government representatives, architects, nurses and locksmiths experienced in correctional, juvenile justice and health departments.
The anti-harm furniture used throughout this project was predominantly manufactured by Assa Abloy with hardware for some unique situations modified by Independent Locksmiths & Security Technicians, to suit the hospitals requirements.
Features of the Detention Series Door Furniture
- Covers fixing holes from existing Artefact 200 Series Furniture
- Detention furniture turns feature a clutching mechanism that allows the cylinder to retract the bolt even if the turn knob is held from the inside
The project was managed by Terry McCue and Ken Bowman, and installed onsite from November 2015 through to March 2016.
