SELECT Hospital Tips

PDF Safety Info
tipitspecthumbPDF TIPIT Spec SheetHospitals, correctional facilities, schools and other institutions can use SELECT's hospital tips.  The TIPIT ® can make doorways safer as well as save money and eliminate maintenance headaches by deterring patients, inmates or students from injuring themselves.  

Three new options:

  1. TIPIT ® hospital tips and replacing worn-out hinges with SELECT's geared full surface, half surface or half mortise hinges

    Increase safety and save money by salvaging existing doors and frames, and get SELECT hinges' durability that ends repeated repairs. 

  2. TIPIT ® hospital tips added to new or existing hinges

    Order the ligature-resistant TIPIT ® with new hinges or save money by keeping existing hinges while making  current doorways safer.  The TIPIT ® fits not only above SELECT brand hinges, but also above most other brands of continuous geared hinges. 

  3. Hospital tip preps for concealed geared continuous hinges (excluding SL71)

    Aesthetically pleasing.  Easy to clean.




The new SELECT ligature-resistant TIPIT ® is made of durable aluminum or high-tech polymer and securely fastens to the door frame header with Torx ® security screws.  The ligature-resistant TIPIT ® is PATENTED.  The metal TIPIT ® (combined with SELECT's SL57 hinge) is included in the Design Guide for Behavioral Health Facilities and is approved by the New York State Office of Mental Health.
