Lighting for Prison Cells, Custody Suites & Mental Healthcare
Light Years Ahead is a leading specialist designer and UK manufacturer of fully compliant Ministry of Justice custodial lighting, lighting fixtures and fittings. We design and manufacture an extensive range of lights and luminaires designed for use in prison cell environments, as well as in court cells and police custody suites.
Our years of experience in the custodial security sector means that we understand the exacting needs of demanding high, medium and low risk environments. We work with you to ensure that your anti-ligature lighting does not contribute to prisoner abuse or self-harm, while also far exceeding standards which test for anti-vandal properties, impact and durability.
We understand that creating a pleasant therapeutic environment which feels safe but not institutional has an important effect on service users and staff. Lighting is a key aspect of the overall ambience within a facility and can create a comfortable, safe environment that promotes recovery. Light Years Ahead mental healthcare lighting is installed in hospitals, healthcare and secure healthcare facilities nationally across the UK.
Specialist High Risk Lighting
Day in day out, the Light Years Ahead team works with clients concerned with low, medium and high risk secure services, and specialises in the provision of impact-resistant, minimal ligature point lighting for these conditions. – A ligature point is anything that could be used to attach a cord, rope or other material for the purpose of hanging or strangulation. The Care Quality Commission states that 75% of people who take their own lives while on a psychiatric ward do so by hanging or strangulation, so the protection of patients and residents from these threats is paramount during their rehabilitation and recovery.
All Light Years Ahead products have been developed and manufactured to meet or exceed all official standards in their respective fields and to minimise whole-life costs. Through rigorous testing, product design, review and development we create durable, robust lighting products that illuminate rehabilitation.
