The two patients broke into the staff office on the ward at about 8pm yesterday and caused some damage to the surroundings.
Fire crews from Bracknell and Wokingham stations were called to Upper Broadmoor Road, Crowthorne, as a back-up, but were not needed.
Police officers also attended the incident in the high-security psychiatric facility to assess the damage caused, with a view to starting criminal proceedings against the two offenders.
Tara Ferguson Jones, head of communications for the West London Mental Health NHS Trust (WLMHT), said: "No staff or patients were harmed during the incident.
"Thanks to the efforts of our highly skilled staff we entered the room, and moved the patients back to safe rooms within the hospital."
