Gosport based Nelson House Hospital is a new purpose built step down rehabilitation hospital suitable for men over the age of 18 years, with service users often having been detained under the Mental Health Act.
Designed around preparing residents for discharge into the community, security was a high priority to balance safety for all who attend without creating the feel of a prison like environment.
The maintenance team worked closely with Mul-T-Lock to ensure the right security solutions were selected for the individual areas of the facility, within the constraints of the available budget. The solution chosen had the physical attributes of a mechanical solution with the flexible convenience of an access control system at its core.
“Mul-T-Lock considered the security of Nelson House Hospital taking a holistic approach, recognising areas of concern and identifying a combination of electronic and mechanical measures to suit. The result is a pleasant, safe and secure rehabilitation facility, which is great news for everyone involved.”
Due to the high security requirements of Nelson House, Mul-T-Lock introduced the MT5 patented cylinder platform to provide the robust basis for the bespoke master key suite, and now all internal doors are now secure with fully functional anti-ligature cylinders.
All of the external doors were fitted with Mul-T-Lock’s innovative MT5 CLIQ solution. MT5 CLIQ instantly adds electronic intelligence to the standard MT5 mechanical cylinders, padlocks and keys. Access is now programmed to sets of keys depending on individual job roles to allow entry to specific areas, as and when required.
Steve Ross, Managing Director of Mul-T-Lock added:
“MT5 and MT5 CLIQ cylinders and padlocks when combined offer users an exceptional specification for projects such as Nelson House Hospital, where there is a duty of care to look after all who use the facility and ensure staff do not feel concerned about the security of their work place.”
