Designing better mental healthcare facilities

Soteria Dimension hits the international market

Apollo Fire Detectors, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of fire detection and alarm devices, has launched its range of flush mounted, EN54-7 approved fire detectors to the international market.

The company’s latest range Soteria Dimension consists of two optical fire detectors which use chamberless technology to protect challenging applications. Apollo Fire Detectors explained: “The Soteria Dimension Specialist Optical Detector is designed with an anti-vandal and anti-ligature metal faceplate to protect the most vulnerable from self-harm in care and custody. The shock-resistant faceplate is fitted with anti-tamper screws to ensure that it is completely secure. This minimises safety hazards in healthcare and custodial environments, such as hospitals, contingency wards, quiet rooms, mental health wards and prisons.”

This variant has been tested to meet the requirements of Ministry of Justice specification STD/E/SPEC/038, and has also independently certified to DHF TS0001 for anti-ligature use is specialist areas.

The Soteria Dimension Optical Detector, meanwhile, ‘blends seamlessly into its environment’, making it ideal, Apollo says, ‘for interiors requiring a premium aesthetic’, such a private homes, luxury hotels, designer shops, restaurants, galleries, and bars.

Liam Arstall, head of Product Management, said: “We strive to meet the needs of our customers, even in niche applications. Engaging with our partners made it clear that a creative solution was needed to protect these two key areas. After a tremendous amount of research and development, we’re incredibly proud to now be launching the product to the international market.”
