Crittall Fendor has been a part of various redevelopments throughout Rampton Hospital including patient bedrooms, and a new Learning Disability Unit. Using a combination of our SwingVent ranges, we have created high to medium security spaces to meet the needs of the units. In high secure mental health wards, patients were often held behind bars to ensure security, however this outmoded style did little to rehabilitate or support the healing process. Fendor developed a bar-less glazed window – SwingVent® which is used in patients bedrooms Rampton Learning Disability Unit.
The Learning Disability Unit windows are fitted with shrouds to limit opening distance, with anti-ligature hardware on the interior. The bedrooms used our SwingVent anti-ligature design, to ensure patient safety was at the fore-front of the renovations.
The building is located in the David Wilson Unit at Rampton Hospital. The dedicated Unit has 54 beds across four wards, a separate day centre, outside horticulture and leisure facilities. Patients also have access to the wider hospital if needed. The unit is specialised for patients with learning disabilities, however it accommodates all mental health patients.
