Electronic lockset
with integrated mechanical override

Bedrooms represent the highest risk space in Mental Health, so getting access in an emergency is essential.  The new version of our popular Passport lockset incorporates the override mechanism into the lockcase, ensuring you can overcome even determined barricades in under 5 seconds without any tools.

  • Override activated using staff Lifeline key, also compatible with vision panels and our anti-barricade stops
  • Built-in emergency override ensures faster entry – no separate toolkit required

Step 1:
Release the override handle using the staff-only Lifeline key

The key is always carried by staff to operate the observation panel. In an emergency, the integrated override can be operated within 5 seconds – overcoming determined barricades quickly.

Step 2:
Pull the handle down, retracting the bolt and deactivating the internal turn-pull

There’s a safety spindle that shears under heavy resistance. So even in the most serious barricade attempts, where the service user attempts to jam the turnpull with their bed or body, swift access is achieved without damaging the lock or door.

Step 3:
Pull the door outward 

This handle provides a 3x pull advantage over the internal handle – foiling attempts by a service user to hold the door shut.

Reducing restrictive practices

The lock is operated using an access card, key fob or adjustable wristband. The wristband can be issued to service users, emulating the home environment by giving them complete control over their living space access – restoring dignity, aiding recovery and reducing restrictive practices in line with Care Quality Commission guidance.
