Solutions by Openings
Healthcare Security and Safety Solutions by Opening have been developed using the expertise of the Allegion Specification team and show the best-in-class solutions for specific doors within the healthcare environment.
Patient Room Doors
Patient room doors provide privacy and safety for a patient during a hospital stay. They must also be easily accessible for hospital staff as they carry medical supplies, push gurneys or carts, or quickly move across the room.
Featuring: Glynn-Johnson push/pull locks; Ives swing clear hinges
Behavioral health patients that are treated at hospitals and facilities are at high risk for injury or death, even when regular patient monitoring checks are in place. Openings in these areas have special requirements and must minimize the risk of self-harm while maintaining a balance of patient security and safety.
Featuring: Schlage L Series anti-ligature mortise locks; Ives hospital tip door hinges; LCN concealed door closers
Although this opening’s main purpose is to control the spread of fire and/or smoke while keeping patients and staff safe in emergencies, it can also be used to control access to secure areas of the building. By using automated solutions, these openings deliver quiet, hands-free, automated operation of these high-traffic doors.
Featuring: Von Duprin QEL (Quiet Electric Latch) exit devices; LCN auto operators; aptiQ and aptiQmobile readers and credentials; Von Duprin CVC system (Concealed Vertical Cable)
Low Profile Cross-corridor Openings
These doors are subject to more use and abuse than almost any other openings in a medical facility. By using heavy-duty solutions that are low profile and don’t inhibit traffic flow, these openings will be able to operate correctly under most any circumstances.
Featuring: Von Duprin INPACT exit devices; Steelcraft hollow metal doors; LCN hold open magnets
Security Sensitive Areas – Offline Doors
Many areas in healthcare facilities require a higher level of security and could benefit from the security, efficiency and convenience of electronic access control, but don’t require the complexity of a fully networked system.
Featuring: Schlage electronic locks; LCN door closers
