Behavioral Safety Products’ announces a new Ligature-Resistant Art Frame.
The AF650 meets the challenge of displaying artwork in mental health settings while maintaining the safety of both patients and staff. Both abuse-resistant and tamper-proof, the AF650 is constructed out of a wooden frame with radiused compound edges that mounts flush to walls using specialized wall anchors. The art is protected by a Lexan Class “A” fire-rated polycarbonate barrier. The AF650’s backing is a dense material known as Sintra backing, and rigid framer points are used to secure the artwork within the frame. The frame has predrilled, recessed mounting holes for concealed anchors (included in packaging) spaced to strategic locations to help create a tight seal around the edge of the frame to the wall.
The AF650 comes in three standard sizes but can also be custom-made and crafted to most size requirements. The frames come in four color options: cherry, mahogany, natural, and walnut. These frames were designed in conjunction with VA interior designers and can be found in many VA facilities across the United States. With over 20,000 images available in our internal library that you can select from, our customers will have the ability to create an aesthetically pleasing AND ligature-resistant safe area. Behavioral Safety Products draws from its forty-four years of experience in the behavioral healthcare built environment to design its exclusive ligature-resistant building products. We continue to innovate to meet the new challenges that the industry faces and strive to develop technically sound, aesthetically pleasing, and economically viable products for behavioral healthcare safety.
