DAISY™Ligature-Resistant Over-the-Door Alarm
Over-the-Door Ligature-Resistant Alarm
In behavioral healthcare facilities, swinging doors can present an opportunity for patients to harm themselves. Securitech has created an anti-ligature top door alarm sensor system for these doors which instantly notifies staff of an attempted sentinel event. Nationally recognized as the leading product of its class, the DAISY ligature warning sensor system provides an aesthetically pleasing curved design resembling chair rail molding, and is used in conjunction with a smooth full length antiligature continuous hinge. These combine the system elements and support the concept that visible door hardware should add to a serene environment, and not appear intimidating. Related peripheral components include strobes, key switches and nurse station desk or wall alarm consoles, and enable the creation of simple single door systems up to complete multi-door notification systems.
While there is no replacement for continuous observation, the DAISY Life Safety Alarm is a powerful tool in attempted suicide prevention and in immediately aiding nursing staff.
