INDIANAPOLIS -- Community North Hospital in Indianapolis has recently installed 11 Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies' Schlage L-Series anti-ligature knobs on doors to patient assessment rooms and restrooms in the facility's psychiatric pavilion. Additionally, LCN closers and Ives hinges were installed.
"When we were renovating our psychiatric pavilion, it was imperative that we install an anti-ligature door solution," says Charles Purdy, general support services director, Community North Hospital. "The L-Series meets all of our expectations and we would certainly use this anti-ligature product again for other hospital renovations."
The new anti-ligature trim satisfies a growing need within healthcare and detention facilities where safety is a top priority. Available in a wide variety of L-Series lock functions, the Schlage anti-ligature trim is specifically designed for unique applications where preventing patient self harm is of the utmost importance, according to the company.
"The decision to use the new anti-ligature knob came together very quickly between architect Carl Johnson of BSA LifeStructures, the distributor, and Purdy's team," says Richard Dye, territory manager, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies. "We were able to ship the locks quickly to meet their construction schedule. The 11 locks were installed with no issues and have performed as expected."
