The University of Maryland Medical Centre

The child and adolescent psychiatry department at The University of Maryland Medical Centre, Baltimore, supports those who require acute psychiatric hospitalization as well as a busy outpatient clinic that accommodates almost 10,000 annual visits.

The full renovation of the 11th Floor of their behavioral health utilized Kingsway Group’s SWITCH anti-barricade hinge system, as well as our anti-ligature vision panels, hardware and dispensers.

Our patented SWITCH hinge system offers an anti-barricade solution by allowing the door to be quickly opened outwards into the corridor, in less than two seconds.  Unlike other two-way door systems, the unique SWITCH system is operated from the hinge side of the door, keeping staff safe at all times.

All of the doors were equipped with our Duralux vision panels; a high strength tempered glass unit, designed exclusively for the behavioral health environment.

Our ligature resistant coat hooks, wall mounted door stops and paper towel dispensers were all selected for use through the renovation due to their unique anti-ligature design. Built to withstand any potential abuse, our washroom and hardware products have both the safety of staff and patients in mind whilst offering durability and ease of use.
