Fast, ligature-resistant solutions for doorways throughout your facility.
Now there is a simple way to make doorways safer in your hospital, correctional facility, schools or other institution. SELECT's TIPIT® hospital tips deter patients, inmates or students from handing objects from geared continuous hinges and injuring themselves. The ligature-resistant TIPIT® mounts securely to the door frame above the hinge with TORX® screws. In just minutes you will gain peace of mind for decades.
Three ways SELECT TIPITS increase safety and save money with geared continuous hinges:
- Replace worn-out hinges with SELECT's geared full surface, half surface or half mortise continuous hinges then mount a patented TIPIT® above them. You will save money by using your exisitng doors and frames. Plus, with SELECT hinges' durability, you will cut your maintance and repair costs for years, too.
- Specify patented TIPIT® for new construction. Order the ligature-resistant TIPIT® with new SELECT hinges or use with most other brands of geared continuous hinges.
- Use TIPIT® preps for doorways with geared concealed (full mortise) continuous hinges (excluding SL71). Make your doorways ligature resistant and aesthetically pleasing by eliminating exposed edges with our improved angle-cut TIPITS. They are easy-to-clean too.
Create a fast, Joint Commission-compliant solution with a patented TIPIT® LM and SL57 geared continuous hinge.
Whether you are mandated by a Joint Commission inspection to quickly meet ligature-resistant patient safety standards or are taking preventive steps to deter somone from hurting themselves - SELECT HINGES offers a long-term solution. Mount a patented, metal SELECT TIPIT® LM hospital tip to the door frame header above an SL57 aluminum geared full surface continuous hinge. This ligature-resistant combination will prevent patients from handing objects from the doorway and harming themselves. You will find this combination listed in the New York State Office of Mental Health Patient Safety Standards, Materials and Systems Guidelines and the 2018 Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) Design Guide for Behavioral Health Facilities.
