For use in low-risk patient areas where an auto-locking feature is required.
In addition to Primera's trademark Primary Barricade Override function the '66' incorporates some very interesting features and is specifically designed for applications where automatic locking is needed.
Certain doors lend themselves better to an automatic locking function: kitchens where there are knives, dispensaries where drugs are stored, cupboards in which there are cleaning chemicals and so on. We believe that any application where there is a need to know that the door is locked when closed merits the consideration of using an automatic lock set.
Due to high use, wear and tear of keys in mental healthcare can be a problem. Consequently, any door which locks itself automatically reduces the demand on the key by 50% extending the life expectancy of the locking cylinder by double. Worthy of some consideration!
Primera Automatic Locksets are all equipped with an antithrust bolt which effectively deadlocks the latch when the door is in the closed position. This makes the latch highly resistant to manipulation which is especially useful in the case of outward opening doors. If required, this product can be ordered with a 'Passage Set' function which enables the key to withhold the latch preventing the door from locking automatically as necessary.
