New anti-ligature window system launched


Industry partnership leads to creation of new safety window for mental health settings

A new anti-ligature window design has been unveiled aimed at mental health and custodial facilities.

The system is the result of a partnership between façade specialist, Wicona, and Fendor. Features include:

  • A smooth internal face with no ledges or lips and a reduced number of joints
  • Anti-ligature window hardware
  • A perforated aluminium mesh fixed into the aperture to maximise fresh air
  • Sight lines reduced by around 40% to allow a high level of natural light, helping to enhance the internal environment and wellbeing for occupants or patients
  • An easy-to-clean, low maintenance design
  • Full compliance with Building Regulations Part L 2010 and thermally broken for energy efficiency
