Spruce Design was established in 1985 by Managing Directors Linda and Les Spruce.

They have successfully built this business up over the last 34 years by taking a hands on approach in all aspects of the soft furnishing trade.

Today we are based in childwall in the capital of culture town of Liverpool.

In the last 34 years we have developed an excellent and trusted

working relationship with NHS Trusts and Estate departments in the field of Antiligature systems, We now supply and fit all aspects of anti-ligature products including cubicle rail systems, bathroom accessories made to measure and disposable curtains to suit all wards, We can install, maintain and test annually any anti ligature product system and have a vast knowledge data base of these systems , which we use when testing and auditing for our clients.

Anti-Ligature Testing

Spruce design supply and fit all the major brands of Anti Ligature Rail systems which operate on the principles of :

  • Friction
  • Polymer distortion (or)
  • Magnetic coupling
  • plastic manipulation  e.i. silent gliss and Goelst Safety track and j trac

To provide the desired release mechanism. Fitting these systems requires a great deal of skill if they are to function reliably. The manufacturers have designed the release mechanisms to operate effectively only when the mounting points are properly secured and spaced along the rail, and adequate care is taken to install the units in a manner that allows the rail to collapse and prevent the attempted harm.

Our experience in auditing such systems leads us to believe that, in some cases, the true nature of the risk is not understood and persons who were not familiar with the operating principles have installed the rails. In order to provide you with demonstrable proof of the efficiency of the installed anti-ligature systems we can provide a certificate and annual audit & test for all of your rails and Anti Ligature Equipment.

During the audit we carry out a visual inspection of the overall installation

(from a single rail, or fitting to complete wards) highlighting any obvious

faults and problems. Following this visual inspection we then continue to

test the release characteristics of the systems to their release point. The

force required to release is recorded along with any system faults identified during the process.

Testing and auditing any new or existing Anti-Ligature product.

Clear detailed computer generated reports are produced for the client with full layout diagram, and rail numbering. All release weights, faults found and upgrade suggestions for each rail system are also included.

We offer full fitting and Maintenance service of All Anti-Ligature products.
