Introducing the award-winning ligature resistant shower cover; the first of its kind made exclusively for solid surface showers. When planning the construction of a bathroom for patients suffering from mental illness, it is essential in the design process to eliminate points where a cord, rope, or bed sheet can be looped or tied to a fixture to create a point of ligature, which may result in self-harm or in extreme cases, loss of life. Tower Industries’ patent-pending design accomplishes these goals and more.
“There were no drains [on the market] that were ligature resistant,” recalled Donna Dare Bickley, of JHS Architecture. “We only had drains that fit into solid surface sinks. [Tower] redesigned a better drain to fit into the shower. It’s a retrofit so it can just be plugged in and screwed in. It’s the first drain cover in the entire country. There’s not one anywhere else in the world. Tower not only met the need for a shower but met the need for a plumbing fixture as well.”
