AMITYVILLE, N.Y., March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NAPCO Security Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: NSSC) announces the expansion of its customized health care product line by incorporating new AM™, anti-microbial finishes into all of its LifeSaver™ locking and access control hardware. Marketed by NAPCO's Marks USA Division, AM finishes severely inhibit and control the transmission of infectious diseases in hospitals and assisted living facilities by reducing the ability for bacteria or viruses to grow on locking hardware.
NAPCO markets a variety of health care-targeted product solutions, such as the LifeSaver anti-ligature locks, which prevent occupants from harming themselves; Marks USA lead-lined locks for containment in x-ray rooms; and push-pull locking hardware that allows medical personnel to easily transit throughout a hospital with speed and ease without coming in contact with door knobs or levers. The Alarm Lock Division markets electronic keyless access control privacy locks for use in doctor on-call and single sleep rooms, as well as a variety of double-sided access locks and exit alarms, which reduce Alzheimer or juvenile patient flight risk.
Kaiser Permanente, NYU Langone Medical Center, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, Memorial Sloan Kettering, Bellevue Hospital, Intermountain Healthcare System, Methodist Health System of Dallas/Fort Worth and Fox Hill Village Assisted Living are just some of the increasing number of premier health organizations that are utilizing NAPCO product solutions.
