Anti-barricade doors are purposely designed to enable clinical staff to open the door in an outwaard direction in a barricade scenario. However, if the patient holds the handle on the inside of the door to prevent clinical staff access, the Emergency Pull Handle can be used to provide additional grip to help overcome the contrary, patient generated, internal force.
Simply slide the Emergency Pull Handle over the pinch grip handle and pull to open the door in an outward direction. The length of the Emergency Pull Handle is deliberately designed to enable more than one member of the clinical team to participate in pulling the door ensuring a swift entry to the barricaded room. Suitable for use with 729 handles only.
