BSP has designed and developed this suicide resistant shower valve, handle & escutcheon plate expressly to prevent injury by ligature. This can be readily seen by the integral handle and escutcheon plate. One of its many unique design components includes an X-pattern handle that incorporates recesses deep enough to turn without using pinch and grasp. The built in anti-friction ring also enhances ease of turn between the handle and escutcheon plate. These features insure both ligature resistance and ADA compliance are maintained. This unit features a brass valve body, zinc handle and escutcheon Plate, with a polished chrome finish. The valve rough-in adjustments are 3” to 3-1/2” from the finished wall to the centerline of the hot & cold inlets of the valve body.

    The 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.
