Balco Backing Plate ‘BALSP’


Tackling a common problem with hardware fixtures in mental health environments, Balco Global Ltd have developed a backing plate for a whole range of dispensers. Upon an attempt of ligature, the backing plate stays firmly secured to the wall where the dispenser releases if an abnormal load is applied. Where the backing plate doesn’t come away from the wall, this reduces the weapons risk often found with these types of products.


This is a system designed with ease and safety in mind for staff and service users, reducing risk management. The backing plate has been designed to attach to a variety of free issue dispensers already supplied within your wards, from soap to hand sanitiser to toilet paper and hand towels. Simply send us your dispensers and we will attach the component needed to work with the backing plate and then send the completed order back to you.
