Our ligature resistant paper towel dispenser is a patent pending designed and includes unique features that make it ideal for patient bathrooms or public areas in behavioral settings, that necessitate ligature resistant products. Providing behavioral patients with the modern contained, large center pull roll design of the PH 240 Ligature Resistant Paper Towel Dispenser helps to ensure that your facility is fully stocked, remains clean and will help reduce the frequency of refills.
The “old shelf style” recessed paper towel holders can create an unsanitary environment whereby the patient has to remove and replace the entire stack/roll of paper towels upon each use. These “shelf units” with easy access to the entire towel supply also present a much greater risk of a patient using the paper towels to stop up the toilet or litter the bathroom. These units also require more frequent refill intervals due to wasted towels.
The PH240 is designed to offer a better solution for managing paper towel usage to behavioral facilities and give patients a safe and sanitary experience in towel use. Therefore, we designed the PH240 Ligature Resistant Paper Towel Dispenser with a sloped face to prevent ligature points and included a viewing window to the interior for staff inspection of the towel roll. To save space on the face of the wall and reduce the towel dispenser footprint, we recessed a portion of the PH240 into the wall chase. When installed the outer flange fits snugly against the wall and when mounted with pick-free caulk also discourages ligature. The conical outlet of the dispenser allows patients to cleanly tear paper towels off at precut intervals along the roll to minimize waste and is sized to help prevent contraband from being pushed inside the opening.The dispenser accepts center pull paper towel rolls with up to 600 sheet capacity.
Constructed of 1/8” polycarbonate for abuse resistance, the unit locks with a barrel lock and circular key for tamper resistance, and ease of maintenance. The dispenser includes mounting hardware and can be retrofitted to existing rooms or installed in new facilities. Behavioral Safety Products fixtures are thoughtfully designed and engineered in accordance with the highest quality materials and performance standards for the behavioral industry.

Chief Executive OfficerBanner HealthThe team at Behavioral Safety Products has been a terrific partner in our efforts to update our older behavioral health inpatient units. Many of the units have dated spaces that have odd fixtures and required retrofitting to be installed. They have helped us on multiple projects and even worked with their distributor to speed up delivery time in order for us to meet internal deadlines. BSP has been a pleasure to work with and a great resource for our facilities team.
