A simple, cost effective solution for use in low-medium risk patient areas where doors are staff controlled. A closed door is a locked door.
Like its associates, the Life-Line 86 conforms to DHF TS001 and has been developed in response to the growing demand for automatic locking where a simple key/key function is needed. In some EU countries where legislation is different to the UK such a function would be permissible on bedroom doors. Other applications might include through routes where an automatic locking function ensures that doors cannot inadvertently be left unlocked which prevents the unauthorised movement of service users.
In this case the lock is controlled by Primera's unique Life-Line key mechanism the fundamental benefit of which is that the key-way is blind and deliberately designed to be very accessible allowing for the easy extraction of any foreign object. Life-Line is a bespoke product designed to reduce the risk of any foreign object being jammed in the key-way to deliberately prevent the lock from operating.
All Primera automatic locks come equipped with an antithrust 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.
Due to the application for which the '86' lock-set is intended it does not require any special anti-barricade functions though all the other essential safety features of Primera's market leading anti-ligature range are included which enable continuity of styling throughout the building.
