Introducing Door Top Alarms

The Door Top Alarm helps prevent attempted self harm at the tops of doors by detecting when weight is applied to the top of the door.  This tamper proof system has a variable alarmed delay setting between 5 and 30 seconds.  The Door Top Alarm connects via the main power, and is compatible with most staff attack systems and can alert staff via audible alarm, visible light, staff indicator panel and via the pager or main computer.

The Door Top Alarm works with the Electrically Modified Anti-Ligature Hinge which ensures all cabling and electronics are concealed.  If the top of the alarm is pressed nothing will happen until the programmed delay setting in the electronic box is activated.  It has a 3 tiered led system on the door top alarm which is mirrored on an electronic box, and optionally on nurse stations.  LED lighting shows it working without setting the alarm off, helping with risk assessment period checks.

Benefits:
  • Tamper proof preventing false alarms.
