Allegion US Announces new Schlage Indication Locks

The new Schlage Indication locks from Allegion US incorporate large windows that provide 180-degree field-of-views to offer users easy-to-read lock status visibility.

CARMEL, Ind.— Allegion US, a security products and solutions provider, has announced the expansion of its indication trim portfolio with three new lines of Schlage Indication locks, a lock portfolio designed specifically with K-12 and higher education security needs in mind while also serving the privacy application needs of healthcare, commercial and retail markets.

The company boasts the new locks set a higher standard for security, offering some of the largest viewing windows and a patented 180-degree visibility that ensures clear messaging from any angle, enhancing safety in critical situations. Designed to meet the needs of diverse environments and openings, these locks are designed to offer high levels of functionality and durability for Grade 1, fire-rated applications with features like tamper-resistance, color-blind friendly backgrounds and dual indication options.

“At Allegion, our work in pioneering safety means we’re listening to customer needs and innovating to create solutions that can make a difference in people’s everyday lives and at times when it matters most,” says John Villanueva, general manager, Locks & Access Solutions at Allegion. “In today’s world, the sense of safety and security is paramount, especially in K-12 schools and higher education campuses. As a strategic evolution of our Allegion indication solutions, Schlage’s new indication trims were designed with this in mind, making the locked or unlocked status visible even at a distance, providing invaluable peace of mind in every space.”

Schlage Indication Locks Designed for Fast User Feedback to Communicate Status

Allegion points out the Schlage Indication locks incorporate some of the largest windows on the market and their 180-degree views provide enhanced lock status visibility, allowing for quick confirmation that doors are securely locked from any position in the room.

Allegion emphasizes this is vital in educational settings, but also helpful elsewhere for privacy such as on patient bathrooms in hospitals, or on public, single-use restroom doors in retail settings where eliminating the need to approach the door helps ensure uninterrupted privacy to the occupant and convenience for the next user.

“Knowing the door is securely locked provides peace of mind,” comments Ken Cook director of national safe schools and advocacy. “This peace of mind allows teachers to focus on teaching, while students can focus on learning. This innovation serves as a prime example of Allegion’s dedication to making our nation’s schools safer and more conducive to effective education.”

The company notes the Schlage Indication Solutions are engineered to withstand the high-abuse environments of active school settings. Achieving a Grade 1 BHMA rating, the locks provide high levels of quality, reliability and durability to allow the products to withstand the rigors of K-12 classrooms and higher education campuses where additional safety and security is needed. Allegion asserts that some applications benefit from being able to know the door is locked from both the inside and outside.

The new Schlage mortise and deadbolt indicator trims offer dual (inside and outside) indication options that can be useful in healthcare and commercial settings. The Schlage Indication Solutions were developed to build upon Allegion’s existing indication product portfolio, including Von Duprin security indicators that were designed for high-occupancy areas. The visual verification application reduces the time to tour a facility and helps ensure that each door is secure with at-a-glance visual verification.

Education and healthcare campuses can now outfit a variety of openings—from perimeter entrances to classrooms—with high-visibility visual status indicators. Allegion US adds the Schlage Indication Solutions are offered in the Schlage L Series mortise, ND Series cylindrical and B Series deadbolt locks and are available for purchase now.

Dealers can see an array of Allegion US products at ISC West 2024 in booth #20055.
