Switch Anti-Barricade Door System

The Switch anti-barricade system allows the door to be opened outwards by staff in an emergency situation - this allows the staff to stand in the barricade 'green' zone on the hinge side.

When a barricade situation occurs the staff simply un-lock the Switch hinge mechanism which retracts to allow the door to move away from the closing side - at all times keeping the staff in the safe zone on the hinge side with entry in less than 2 seconds.

The KG280 Switch hinge system is patented as per GB2562483.

Key Features

Switch anti-barricade door system, patented design to allow staff to stand on the hinge side of the door when attending a barricade situation, developed for smooth action, speed and ease of use.  The Switch door system provides swift access for staff in an emergency.

The retraction method allows the door to open outwards even when the door is locked – removes the need for cumbersome override tool kits.  This action of the hinge articulating prevents items being wedged into the door edge and causing a difficultly for staff to open the door - these essential features make the Switch anti-barricade door system the system of choice for many leading NHS hospitals across the UK.

Conventional rebated frame profile for non-institutional appearance and maximum strength & durability, this also provides improved accoustic and the Switch door system has achieved a 32dB reduction.

The Switch anti-barricade door system operates like no-other anti-barricade system in the world.  It's patented articulated hinge allows the staff member to stand in the barricade 'green-zone' on the hinge side of the door and simply un-lock the hinge to allow the door to open outwards, even when locked by the patient.

This critical feature also prvents any wedging barricades need excessive force by the staff to open the door outwards - no time consuming override tool kits are required.
