Britplas SafeVent Windows
Britplas SafeVent Windows
The Safevent Window provides an eminently practical solution to the problems posed by the need for security to be applied with sensitivity whilst maximising natural light and ventilation.
Initially developed in response to a request from the contractors to Mersey Care NHS Trust, the Safevent Window has subsequently been specified as the product of first choice by the majority of NHS Trusts nationwide, in addition to many private mental care hospitals, schools and commercial organisations. Britplas have installed over 10,000 Safevents on over 150 projects UK wide.
The Safevent Window provides maximum levels of natural light and ventilation without the need for personnel supervision. Manufactured to the highest standard, every component of the window can withstand considerable punishment in situations that would defeat lesser products.
All Safevent units are anti ligature and with their in-line sliding action, provide patients/occupants with a greater degree of control whilst overcoming the 100mm restriction on opening in addition to maintaining complete security. Our window design also offers a very effective screen from flying insects, allowing for much improved living conditions in hot or humid weather.
Material Options, Fitting, Cleaning and Maintenance
The Safevent Window is available in aluminium or UPVC, with the new stainless-steel/aluminium combination available for the more sever environment. Units can be manufactured (in all materials) in any RAL colour with different internal/external colours if required.
We have manual, mechanical and automatic electronic versions. Every installation is thoroughly planned in advance. From a single window to a full hospital complex, our fitting crews are fully trained to carry out your installation with as little disruption as possible and are all experienced in 'live' environments.
Safevent windows have no locks or complex moving parts, therefore cleaning and maintenance is kept to a minimum, with self cleaning glass as a standard within our recommended glazing specification, ensuring reduced ongoing costs. A three point locking system is available when an override facility is deemed appropriate.
The window is environmentally sound and boasts excellent low U values in both UPVC and Aluminium.
