Our retrofit anti-barricade doorstop combines durability and safety with a non-institutional aesthetic.
Compatible with pivot or continuous hinge systems, its rapid release mechanism means doors can be opened outwards by staff at any time within just 15 seconds. It’s available in a range of finishes, including timber effect, to blend into the design scheme.
Simple and fast to fit to existing doorsets.
Durable but discreet
The reinforced aluminium and steel construction can withstand high impact, but timber finish provides unobtrusive non-institutional appearance, with minimal visible fixings.
The vertical release mechanism ensures that it’s always easily removed, even with force being applied from inside the room. A single point of operation makes removal quick and intuitive for staff. Plus, using the staff-only Lifeline key drive ensures that it can’t be removed or operated by service users.
Secure parking stations are fitted beside each door on the corridor wall. Staff can remove and park the stop in under 15 seconds. Once the incident is over, the staff key allows the stop to be reinstated for normal use.
Like many of our locking mechanisms, the retrofit anti-barricade stop is operated using the staff-only Lifeline closed keyway. This prevents service users operating the stop – enhancing ward security and privacy. Plus with one key to operate all locks on a ward, clinicians know immediately which one to use – making access quicker and less complicated.
With minimal visible fixings and two-second anti-barricade access, our anti-barricade doorset is ideal for bedrooms and available with mechanical or electronic locksets.
