Established in 2012 as the only ‘One Stop Shop for all anti-ligature products available under one roof. Anti ligature shop harnesses extensive technical and clinical expertise developed in the NHS to manage suicide risk within mental health and custodial environments.

Since our inception we have developed and refined our product range to encompass the best products available at competitive prices. In addition we have work tirelessly with health care professionals and suppliers to develop our own product range to manage previously unmet needs (i.e. Anti-ligature hand dryers, shower chairs, fixed curtain rails, soap dispensers, extraction grills, ensuite doors)
