Introducing Door Top Alarms

Posted by Hipac Marketing Team on 15 June 2016
Introducing Door Top Alarms

The Door Top Alarm helps prevent attempted self harm at the tops of doors by detecting when weight is applied to the top of the door.  This tamper proof system has a variable alarmed delay setting between 5 and 30 seconds.  The Door Top Alarm connects via the main power, and is compatible with most staff attack systems and can alert staff via audible alarm, visible light, staff indicator panel and via the pager or main computer.

The Door Top Alarm works with the Electrically Modified Anti-Ligature Hinge which ensures all cabling and electronics are concealed.  If the top of the alarm is pressed nothing will happen until the programmed delay setting in the electronic box is activated.  It has a 3 tiered led system on the door top alarm which is mirrored on an electronic box, and optionally on nurse stations.  LED lighting shows it working without setting the alarm off, helping with risk assessment period checks.

  • Tamper proof preventing false alarms.
  • Enables staff to respond immediately to attempted suicides and emergency situations.
  • Improves the safety of patients in secure units.
  • Can be used across a multiple of applications including bedroom and bathroom doors.


  • Programmed electronics box with delay setting options.
  • Connects to existing staff attack system.
  • Suitable for both single and double acting hinges.

Customer Spotlight - South East Regional Hospital, Bega

After a decade of planning and development, South East Regional Hospital (SERH) in Bega is now open for business, featuring the latest in bariatric surgical table technology from Hipac. The SERH is an integrated health precinct, one of the first of its kind for NSW Health, with a range of partners providing medical and health services including the Bega Ambulance Station and BreastScreen Australia from the one location.

The hospital site is located at 4 Virginia Drive, Bega and nestles on 17.5 hectares of land just outside Bega's CBD. The floor area of the hospital is equal to the size of four-and-a-half football fields and the head contractor estimates that 486,920 man hours were spent on the project. The new hospital will enable delivery of health care in new and innovative ways, with a suite of enhanced services that will provide the community with a level of care not seen before in the region. With its removable head, leg and back section, extreme table top slide and superior patient weight capacities, three 3602X Ultraslide Operating Tables are in use at the facility to provide an all-in-one surgical solution for all case requirements.

The Hipac team was on hand to talk about some of the latest innovations in the operating theatre space including some of the unique patient positioning features that the Ultraslide Bariatric Operating Theatre Table can offer and some of the important life cycle considerations that should be taken into account during the design and planning phase of new operating theatre projects.

Customer Spotlight - The Cosmetic Institute

Posted by Hipac Marketing Team on 29 September 2014

We recently delivered a complete equipment fit out for three theatres at the new Cosmetic Institute facility in Bondi. Below are some of the pictures of the finished facility.

The works had to be completed in a compressed timeframe while surrounding works in the building were completed but we are delighted with the results. Other challenges unique to this project included the provision of specialised operating theatre pendants that could be used in very confined spaces without collision and the delivery of market leading yet cost effective surgical lighting systems.

Hipac has a dedicated in house team that specialise in installations of surgical lighting, pendants and digital integration. From initial design to project completion, we ensure that your equipment is dependable and maintained to exacting standards.
