Designed to reduce emergency access time and minimise keyway blocking, the Lifeline keyway is used on a number of our products. Staff only need one key to operate the vision panel, anti-barricade stop, emergency override lockset, en-suite leaves reset and window handles.
The keyway is automatically closed off when the Lifeline key is removed from the lock - meaning nothing can be jammed or tampered with. It's also patented, meaning it's only available from us and ensuring careful regulation of people with access to keys.
During observations, clinical staff can use their Lifeline key to operate the vision panel on the bedroom door and make sure patients are safe and well.
If a staff member has been alerted to an emergency, they can use the same Lifeline key to activate the emergency lever on the Integrated Override Lockset to gain immediate access.
In a barricade scenario, clinical staff can also use the Lifeline key to release the anti-barricade stop which collapses into the door frame - providing emergency access in just 2 seconds.
We know it’s important to reduce unauthorised use of vision panels, for example by using a standard square drive key.
That's why we developed an anti-tamper keyway for the vision panel for improved privacy and safety.
Our en-suite doors come with a staff-only reset function. This means if the leaves have been detached by patients, only a staff member can reattach using their Lifeline key.
Unifying door components with our range of window handles increases safety and further reduces the need for staff to carry multiple keys.
As well as offering anti-tamper fixings, rounded corners and chamfered edged back-lates, our window handles are robust and designed to withstand day-to-day use.
Manufactured from die-cast zinc and solid steel plate, they're finished in satin stainless steel and can also be RAL powder-coated to match any design scheme.
