Hospital Grade Gasketing

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Some psychiatric wards have safety issues with the rubber that can be found inside of gasketing that goes around doors and windows. patients can pull out long strips of strong silicone and harm themselves and/or others with it. The answer: Anti-Ligature strips. these strips of neoprene and silicone are notched so that when pulling on it it will break into small pieces. This Door and Window hardware site is selling it in different shapes and forms. They can even have it used in a door bottom sweep. New York State is one of the first states to recommend it’s usage and it is just a matter of time before it is mandated in certain facilities.
