NEW HAVEN, Conn., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The ASSA ABLOY Door Group has launched a new advancement for behavioral health facilities. The Patient Room Access Door, offered by Ceco Door and CURRIES is a workable solution that has aesthetic flexibility and meets required industry codes. This innovative solution has just passed a 45 minute fire test for the step through access inner door option. The fire test was conducted per NFPA 252, UL10B, UL10C and CAN4-S104.
Proper aesthetics can be just as important as attention to safety in behavioral health facilities. The Patient Room Access Door is modeled to provide security and dependability for healthcare facilities, with a design that is modest enough for healing environments. Intended to give caretakers or authorized personnel access to a patient's room in case of an emergency and maintain the security needed for the facility. The main door has the functionality of a standard in swing patient room door. The inner door can open to the corridor giving authorized personnel quick access to the patient's room. Patient safety is a key feature in the design of the door.
Ceco Door and CURRIES are the first in the business to achieve a UL10C (positive pressure) 45 minute fire rating for this type of application; once again, leading the industry.
This solution is also accepted by the New York State Office of Mental Health.
