A simple, cost effective auto latching lockset for use in low-medium risk patient areas.
The PR-LL-66 is designed for applications where automatic locking is required. Operating on Primera's unique Life-Line drive mechanism the lockset is designed as such that foreign objects forced in to the key-way by the service user in an attempted barricade attempt are easily and quickly removed.
We believe that any application where there is a need to know that when the door is closed it is locked, merits the use of an automatic deadlocking latch. Kitchens, Dispensaries & Cleaning Cupboards all house potentially dangerous implements or substances and automatic locking in such applications is worthy of consideration. Key wear is also another significant factor to consider when specifying locks. Especially so in mental health environments where key usage is high due to the locking regime. Automatic locks reduce the wear and tear on keys by 50% as, unlike a mortise lock, the key is only ever used to unlock the door.
All Primera automatic locks come equipped with an anti-thrust bolt which deadlocks the latch when the door is in the closed position reducing the potential for patient manipulation. If required, this product can also be ordered with a special 'passage set' feature. This feature is activated by key and withholds the latch to prevent it from latching automatically. This is particularly useful during periods of continual traffic.
To meet the growing demand for access control on patient bedroom doors a bespoke electric strike plate is available.
