In the absence of a legal or industry definition of anti-ligature or ligature resistant products, when we use these terms, we are referring to products that are designed and manufactured with the intention of reducing the risk of ligature attachment to the product(s).
Galvin Engineering Pty Ltd will always endeavour to design and test our anti-ligature product(s) to reduce the risk of product ligature attachment that may result in serious injury or death.
Whilst all reasonable measures are taken at the time of design, the anti-ligature design of the products are not intended to and will not:
a. Replace protective measures that need to be taken in the specific circumstances of usage;
b. Substitute the need for supervision of those who may be at risk;
c. Protect and or prevent those at risk against any self-harm instances that may occur when installed; and
d. Protect and or prevent injury when the risks where unknown to us at the time of the design of the product(s).
Galvin Engineering Pty Ltd does not offer and does not represent or warrant that any product(s) for sale that are ligature-free.
Therefore, Galvin Engineering will not be liable for any claims, loss, or damages arising from ligature attachment on our products. It is the purchaser's responsibility to ensure that products purchased and installed are suitable for the environments in which they are installed, and suitable supervision and protective measures are in place to protect those at risk.
