Ligature Resistant Sliding Door System
The patented Ligature Resistant Sliding Door System is a seamless, safe, space-saving and secure door opening solution designed for behavioral healthcare environments. The concealed track system hangs a 1-3/4” door with a surface applied 1/16” gap without any exposed anchor points or cavities where unwanted items could be stored. The seamless deign also eliminates opportunities to use the top edge of the door as a ligature point. The sliding door features a concealed vertical rod bolt that locks into the concealed track and is operated by a ligature resistant thumb turn to provide privacy. A clutch override feature is included to unlock the door from the outside when the inside turn piece is forcibly held, making it a safer solution for patients, nurses and staff. In addition to locking the door in the “closed” position, other locking positions can easily be added based on the application. It can also be offered with a keyed deadbolt feature that also provides override safety. Ligature resistant flush pulls allow the door to be opened and closed.
