Question:

What is ligature resistant or anti-ligature hardware?

 

Answer:

Ligature resistant, or anti-ligature hardware, is hardware that has been specifically designed to prevent a person from using the hardware as a ligature point to do bodily harm to themselves or others. Typically this type of hardware is used in behavioral health centers with patients with a mental illness, or where patients have thoughts to do themselves harm. Unfortunately, the need for such a product exists and is becoming increasingly more common in healthcare facilities. Ligature resistant hardware typically includes, but is not limited to, architectural door hardware and restroom hardware and accessories.
