Hospitals and behavioral health facilities are increasingly concerned with suicide prevention. Internal reviews and external audits often reveal outdated grilles and diffusers that are not ligature (tie off) resistant. When time permits, a complete redesign of the system with the removal of the existing grilles and diffusers and the installation of new risk resistant models is the preferred direction. However, many situations require urgent action.

KEES is here to help with a simple solution. Our new risk resistant retrofit grilles fit over the existing grilles or diffusers. They are readily available in any size, are easy to install, and provide immediate protection. In addition, the perforated face is raised away from the mounting surface so that airflow obstruction is minimized.
